Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! (or simply Wubbzy) is an American educational children's flash animated television series created by Bob Boyle for Nickelodeon and Nick Jr.. The series is animated by Bardel Entertainment in both Toon Boom and Adobe Flash software[1] and produced by Bolder Media and Starz Media. Bob Boyle, Susan Miller, Mark Warner, and Fred Seibert-Warner are all of 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 and concluded on February 21, 2010.

Origin[edit]

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.[2] During the series' development process, the characters were renamed Wubbzy, Widget, and Walden.[1]

Boyle submitted his original concept as a book to Bolder Media. After more than 6000 children's book concepts were reviewed, his submission was selected for development into an animated series for preschoolers.

Production for the first season began on September 2004. The series premiered on Nickelodeon's Nick Jr. block on August 28, 2006. It ended on Nick's Play Date block in 2010 after it aired its final episode. It originally became a hiatus until December 2009.[clarification needed] Reruns were moved to the Nick Jr. network. The series remained a part of the channel until April 15, 2014, when the show was pulled off the air in the US, thus officially ending the show. All traces of the show were removed from the Nick Jr. website as well. The last episode that aired in re-runs was "Save the Wuzzly/All Bottled Up." The last episode aired on the Nickelodeon network was "Lights, Camera, Wubbzy/A Wubbstar is Born", on April 30, 2009.

The show has received an Emmy, a KidScreen Best TV Movie award (for Wubb Idol, starring Beyoncé), 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 over 100 countries around the world.
