Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! (2006-2010) is a children's animated show created in Adobe Flash and aired on Nick Jr.. The show is named after the Catch Phrase for the three main characters, "Wow! Wow!" and the main character Wubbzy.The show centers on Wubbzy, an anthropomorphic rodent with a long, flexible tail. His best friends often get in on the action, the pink rabbit Widget, who is a Gadgeteer Genius, and the blue wallaby Walden, who is the Smart Guy. In season two, they were joined by Daizy, a dog-like girl who acts as The Chick.
This show provides examples of:
Accidental Hero: After Wubbzy plays chase with a friendly dinosaur in "Wubbzy the Hero", the town believes that he saved them by chasing a dangerous dinosaur away.
Catch Phrase: Besides "Wow! Wow!," Widget also uses "No problemo!", "<Convienent item needed> 3000." and "That's not supposed to happen." Walden also uses "Yes, yes, yes!" and "Very interesting!" Daizy is prone to saying, "Lavender lollipops!"
Chekhov's Gun: As the gang runs around the new Wubb Club in "The Wubb Club", Wubbzy spills his glass everywhere they go. When the structure is about to fall over this helps them find their way out.
The Chick: Daizy. Except for liking "kickety kick ball," Daizy prefers more feminine pursuits. Daizy does not appear in the first season; in episodes after her introduction she is hilariously wedged into the title song by changing the line "and when they're together the fun never ends" to "and when they're with Daizy the fun never ends". Why she was added in isn't clear. Maybe the creators wanted a character who was more obviously a girl than Widget, who is pink but spends all of her (?) time building giant robots.
Funny Animal: All of the characters are anthropomorphic animals who live in houses and (mostly) wear clothing. Interestingly, it's really not clear what animals they are supposed to be. Wubbzy is a—yellow square thing, who might be a gerbil or hedgehog (going by the long tail, it is likely he is gerbil). Widget kind of looks like a rabbit, but that's mostly her long ears. Walden's species isn't clear at all. Daizy looks vaguely like a dog.
In "Daizy's Purple Thumb" they steal all the produce from Daizy's garden and get away with it.
In "The Wubb Club" they deliberately gnaw away a support post for the new Wubb Club, toppling and destroying it, and they get away with that too.
Literal Metaphor: In "Lights, Camera, Wubbzy!" the guy directing the Wubb Girls movie asks Wubbzy to be in it, and says "How would you like to be a big star?". It turns out Wubbzy's part is as an actual star in the sky.
The Man in the Moon: In "Wubb Girls Rule" he's taking a nap. In "Fly Us to the Moon", he oversleeps, causing the night sky to be present at 8 a.m.
Match Cut: "Walden is his friend, he's really smart, he knows about science [cut] and books [cut] and art..."
Many other shout-outs througout the series. In an episode where Wubbzy is giant-sized he goes to see a movie called "The Very Big Monkey" that is an obvious goof on King Kong. In another he briefly wears an Iron Man costume.
Special Guest: Beyoncé, Ty Pennington (of Extreme Home Makeover fame), Michelle Kwan (Olympic figure skater), entertainment reporter Jann Carl, and Tiki Barber (ex NFL Running Back, although Tiki only gets about four lines in his episode.)
