“Wallykazam”

As you all know, Desirée Lee and I are the parents of a highly-intelligent 20-month-old (as of today!) daughter. Those of you who follow us on Facebook know her simply as Toddler Girl. In a past post on this blog, I explained why we don’t post her name, or photos, on-line. Anyway…

A while back we discovered a fantastic children’s television series on Nick Jr. called “Wallykazam”. Our daughter loves it. Although it’s’ a children’s program, Desirée and I quite enjoy it, too. “Wallykazam” is a fun, whimsical, and at times laugh-out-loud funny series that teaches small children vocabulary, word use, and problem solving. Here’s the opening title sequence of the show:

The main character of “Wallykazam” is a troll boy named Wally Trollman. In each episode, he goes on an adventure with his pet dragon Norville (who is much like a dog in most ways) and is typically accompanied by some mixture of his group of friends – Ogre Doug, Gina Giant, Libby Lightsprite, Stan of the Swamp, Betty Yeti, and Bobgoblin to name a few. Bobgoblin is sort of a friend/enemy in the show. Often, when things go wrong, Bobgoblin has either caused the problem, or makes whatever is going on worse. Bobgoblin is also Desirée’s favorite character in the show.

The teaching aspects of this wonderful show mix perfectly with the fantasy setting and characters to be a tailor-made fit for our household. We’re very glad of the show, and have the DVR set to record all showings of it. Even episodes we’ve already seen are most welcome.

Why am I talking about this children’s series here on my writing blog? Because I would be honored to work on an episode of it! Can anyone reading this help make that happen? If so, please get in touch with me via the “Contact” page of my website.
