“‘The Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!’ team has embraced social media since Wubbzy’s launch in 2005 and it is exciting to have our Wubbzy fans guide the episode selection on Anchor Bay’s newest DVD,” said Susan Miller, CEO of Bolder Media, Inc.
“Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!,” a hit with young viewers and their families since its 2006 TV premiere on Nickelodeon, currently airs daily on Nick Jr. Wubbzy is a fun, lovable, curious little guy who just likes to play, play, play with his friends in the eye-popping town of Wuzzleburg. The top-rated series supports preschool social skills – sharing, listening, compromising, helping and appreciating others, self-awareness and the use of humor as a coping skill.
Although their world is more fanciful and imaginative than our own, Wubbzy and his friends deal with the same social and developmental issues faced by preschoolers. They learn how they fit into a group, how to understand their own feelings and those of others, how to get along with one another and about the value of friendship and community.
“Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!” is produced by Bolder Media, Inc. in association with Starz Media’s Film Roman Animation Studio. It is a worldwide hit that is broadcast in 100+ countries. Susan Miller (co-producer of Ella Enchanted) and Fred Seibert (executive producer of “The FairlyOdd Parents”) are the executive producers of the show created by Emmy Award winner Bob Boyle (producer of “The FairlyOdd Parents”).
