Lovable by all means. `Nuff said.

What's the story?

Aimed at preschoolers, WOW! WOW! WUBBZY! features a cute, bouncy, and rather nondescript (but somewhat squirrel-like) yellow fellow named Wubbzy and his friends Widget and Walden (who also appear to be animals of some sort). They all live in the whimsical, pastel-colored world of Wuzzleburg and share all sorts of adventures, from racing a super-souped-up vehicle in a derby to looking after Wubbzy's strange new pet. Wubbzy (voiced by Grey DeLisle) is a carefree little guy who just wants to have fun; naturally, his escapades sometimes get him into trouble. Luckily, Widget (Lara Jill Miller) is a mechanical whiz who's always willing to help Wubbzy out of a jam, and bookish Walden (Carlos Alazraqui) is never without some pearls of wisdom when Wubbzy needs guidance. The three friends face the same kinds of interpersonal and developmental issues that preschoolers face -- such as fitting in and getting along with others -- and they have to figure out how to resolve those issues.

Is it any good?

Although the series' animation is unremarkable -- the colors and depth pale in comparison to many other popular preschooler cartoons, such as Noggin's The Backyardigans -- the storylines are simple, engaging, and funny, and the characters are cute and energetic. Unfortunately, it's likely that some young viewers will be bored by the flat visuals, but hopefully they'll watch long enough to absorb the show's positive messages.
