What's the story?

ABBY HATCHER follows the adventures of 7-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. On call to her Fuzzly buddies through the watch her father gives her, Abby leaps into action to help when they call, with loyal Bozzly by her side. Together they help their friends foster their special abilities, which the Fuzzlies put to good use helping around the hotel.

Add Abby Hatcher to your circulation of shows with positive female characters who lead by example. When she goes the extra mile for a Fuzzly friend, Abby reminds kids of the joys of showing kindness to others without receiving anything but appreciation in return. This sweet, lively show is a fun pick for kids.
