[[caption-width-right:299:Hello children, would you like to hear a horrid story of dreadful folk?]]
Willo The Wisp is the title of a 1981 [[TheBBC BBC]] children's programme, and TheRemake in 2005. It tells the story of various magical beings living in Doily Woods, all voiced by Kenneth Williams. In the remake, they were voiced by James Dreyfuss of ''TheThinBlueLine'' and ''GimmeGimmeGimme''.

'''Characters''':

* '''Willow The Wisp''': The {{Narrator}}, a will o' the wisp.
* '''Arthur''': H'an h'opinionated caterpillar who never quite turned into a butterfly. A KnowNothingKnowItAll.
* '''Mavis Cruet''': A very overweight fairy who can't fly. A bit of a romantic.
* '''The Moog''' A very dim dog-like being. Arthur's pet.
* '''Carwash''': A highly intelligent cat. Usually too intelligent to actually be involved in the story, and just [[DeadpanSnarker snarks]] from the sidelines.
* '''The Beast''': A handsome prince who gets turned into a beast by Evil Edna in the first episode. Generally obsessed with becoming a handsome prince again.
* '''Evil Edna''': A WickedWitch. Also, a talking television set with legs. (In the remake, she transforms herself into a flatscreen in the first episode.)
* '''Twit''': A small yellow bird. Intelligent, but quietly so.
* '''The Astrognats''': A group of insect-like space explorers. Their ship is a huge rocket-powered mushroom.

* CatsAreSnarkers: Carwash.
