What's the story?

YOOHOO TO THE RESCUE is an animated series about a group of animal friends who go around the world to help other animals. Senegal bushbaby YooHoo (voiced by Kira Buckland) heads up his gang of YouTopian friends, which includes Pammee the fennec fox (Ryan Bartley), Lemmee the Lemur (Bryce Papenbrook), Chewoo the red squirrel (Cassandra Lee Morris), Roodee the capuchin monkey (Lucien Dodge), Slo the sloth (Kyle Hebert), ​​​and YooTopia’s messenger, Lora the scarlet macaw (Erica Mendez). When the Sparkling Tree tells them that there’s a problem, the team boards the flying Wonderbug, pilot to Earth, and uses a combination of smarts and gadgets to solve it. Throughout it all, they make lots of new animal friends and learn a few things about their natural environments.
