[[caption-width:500:Welcome to our world!]]

''Word World'' is a [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs very odd]] preschool show that centers on {{Funny Animal}}s and a [[FurryConfusion non-anthro dog]] -- who are all living ''words''. They live in Wordville and can build new things out of letters. If you need a house, just build one out of the appropriate letters.

Pretty convoluted for something that's meant to teach kids how to spell, but whatever works.

Target has made a '''lot''' of merchandise for the show.
