YooHoo & Friends (Hangul: 유후와 친구들) is a Korean toy line of stuffed toys that were founded in 2006 by Aurora World. Inspired by a bush baby, the first of these toys that were introduced were five and eight-inch plush animals with big button eyes and long, soft tails. The off white color plush animal bodies featured yellow, pink, purple or turquoise colors, primarily around the eyes and as color rings on a solid grey tail.
Around July 2007, the company would expand their line to include Valentine's and graduation themed YooHoos, eventually leading to the launch of Easter, Halloween and holiday-themed YooHoos. The company continues to expand its merchandising and licensed products worldwide.
There are three Animated Shows based on the franchise:
- YooHoo & Friends (First show; Hanguk Manhwa Aenimeisyeon produced by Aurora World)
- YooHoo & Friends (Second show; 2012 American Gag Dub of above produced by Toonzone Studios)
- YooHoo to the Rescue (Third show; Korean-Italian All-CGI Cartoon produced by Aurora and Mondo TV)
