Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! is an American educational animated children's television show created by Bob Boyle. The series is animated in Toon Boom and Adobe Flash software, produced by Bolder Media, (a joint-venture between Frederator Studios and Mixed Media Group or Classic Magic) and Starz Media. Bob Boyle, Susan Miller, Mark Warner, and Fred Seibert-Warner are the executive producers. The pop rock music is performed by Brad Mossman, and the musical score is composed and conducted by Mike Reagan. The series premiered on August 28, 2006 in the United States on Nick Jr. The second and final season debuted on September 1, 2008 on Nickelodeon's Nick Jr. in the United States.
According to Bob Boyle, the series began as a story created by his niece, Viviana Ogawa, that Boyle turned into a rough comic book-style storybook called The Tail of Flopsy, Mopsy, and Ted. During the series' development process, the characters were renamed Wubbzy, Widget, and Walden.
Boyle submitted his original concept as a book to Bolder Media. After more than 600 children's book concepts were reviewed, Boyle's submission was selected for development into an animated series for toddlers and preschoolers. Production for the first season began in September 2004. The series premiered on Nickelodeon on August 28, 2006. However, it ended on Nick's Play Date block in 2009, but it was moved to the Nick Jr. network. The series remains a part of Nick Jr.'s preschool goals, teaching preschoolers to share and care by supporting social and emotional development.
The show has received an Emmy, A KidScreen Best TV Movie award for Wubb Idol starring Beyonce and a Telly award.
A translated version of the series has been a popular addition to the "Cúla 4" children's programming lineup on the Irish language television channel, TG4 since January 2011. The show is dubbed in 15 languages and airs in 100+ countries around the world.
The series contained 52 episodes.
