Wow Wow Wubbzy
about the show
Wubbzy is always trying to have fun. But often times Wubbzy can't have fun anymore because his kickity-kick ball pops or a similar problem arrives. Then Wubbzy relies on his two best friends Walden and Widget to help him get back to having fun.
I definitely consider it to be the most energetic show on TV. It is very colorful with lots of fun and catchy music. The animation is alos pretty unique being made in Flash like a lot of web based cartoons.
Wow! Wow! Wubbzy has been my five year old Jakob's favoriter TV show, ever since he first saw it. Jakob started watching it about a year ago but the show has been on since August of 2006 on Nick Jr. We watch it pretty regularly on Noggin. Jakob seems to love Wubbzy's energetic personality.
The show was created by Bob Boyle who started it from a story his niece Viviana Ogawa wrote. Bob turned the story into a comic book-style book. The book was called The Tail of Flopsy, Mopsy and Ted. While developing the story into a show the names of the characters changed and it was decided to be animated in Flash.
The show has the most catchy theme song I have ever heard created by Brad Mossman. Be warned once the song is in my head I can't easily get it out. So be careful.
I was trying to find the DVD for my son and realized one hasn't been released yet. But the good news is that the first DVD "A Tale of Tails" will be released on September 23rd.
Wubbzy is a yellow gerbil type creature with a very long tail. He is very energetic and excited about everything. He is constantly saying Wow! Wow! Wow! and his favorite past time is playing kickity-kick ball and hoppity-hopscotch. Wubbzy is always looking to have fun.
Walden is a small purple bear. Walden is a scientist who is always reading and learning.
Widget is a pink rabbit. Widget is always inventing things and is ready to fix any problem.
I can't believe the DVD is so cheap at Amazon.
