What's the story?

ABBY HATCHER follows the adventures of seven-year-old Abby (voiced by Macy Drouin), an energetic girl with a soft spot for the Fuzzlies that live in and around her new hotel home. After befriending a special Fuzzly named Bozzly (Wyatt White), the two of them find all kinds of exciting adventures and meet new Fuzzlies at every turn. But those Fuzzlies can get into some real trouble, and that's when Abby has to save the day with some creative problem solving. Together with Bozzly, Abby puts her can-do attitude to good use helping the Fuzzlies get back on track.

Is it any good?

Self-assured, gregarious Abby delights with her determined spirit and her joyful dedication to her friends.

Together they help their friends foster their special abilities, which the Fuzzlies put to good use helping around the hotel.
