Henry's World is a Canadian animated children's series produced for Canada's Family Channel by Cuppa Coffee Animation, Alliance Atlantis Communications, but TV Loonland AG only produced season 1. It was first aired from 2002 to 2007, with reruns still currently Nick Jr. in Germany. The series follows Henry Wiggins, a boy who has an extraordinary ability to make his wishes come true when eating his mother's mashed carrots. This was the first stop-motion animated series to be entirely produced in Canada.

Plot[edit]

Henry Wiggins (voiced by Samantha Reynolds) is the third oldest of five children (himself, two older brothers and two younger sisters). When he was just five years old, Henry discovered that eating his mother's mashed carrots gave him the ability to make wishes come true. Once eaten, Henry can make one wish come true. However, being only eight years old, his unusual wishes are often played out with unexpected consequences and his insatiable curiosity invariably spells disaster, but Henry also learns some of life's lessons along the way.

Henry shares his secret and misadventures with his best friend Fraidy Begonia (voiced by Tracey Moore), his faithful pet dog Margaret, and Doris, a dragon who lives in Henry's closet. Other characters in the show include Henry's Uncle Neptune (voiced by Colin Fox), Ms. Pierre, Henry's teacher and the anti-hero Darwin (voiced by Julie Lemieux), an overweight bully who sometimes teases and picks on Henry.
