Waybuloo is not just a series, it's a philosophy for a happy life, and is like nothing children will have ever seen before.
The pre-school series (aimed at 2-5 year olds) transports children into a magical land called Nara – a real world, which is inhabited by adorable animated characters called Piplings.
Taking a completely original approach, Waybuloo focuses on children's feelings, and the Piplings embody a range of emotions including love, wisdom, happiness and harmony – all in search of "Waybuloo".
Piplings are joyful and gentle creatures who personify positive emotion through the natural ability to float when they're happy. They have a childlike innocence and sense of wonder, making them inquisitive, impulsive and funny. Naturally selfless, thoughtful and sweet-natured, they take care in their relationships with each other and the world.
When a Pipling is truly happy, does something good, or makes someone feel better they achieve "buloo" – a warm feeling of emotional harmony that is experienced by Piplings as floating. So Waybuloo is a journey to happiness – floating, spinning, dancing and soaring above the clouds of Nara.
There are four Piplings.
Lau Lau is rabbit-like and her key characteristic is her imagination. She loves to paint and sculpt, especially if she can make presents for her friends.
Yo Jojo is monkey-like and represents happiness. He is clumsy, funny and cheeky. Just as Lau Lau loves to paint, Yo Jojo loves music and dancing. He even has a little stage carved from a tree stump on which to perform.
De Li is kitten-like and represents love. She's a bit shy but is nurturing and loves nature, be it gardening, flowers or gathering food for the group.
Nok Tok is bear-like and represents wisdom. He solves problems and comes up with creative, inventive solutions for fixing and mending things. He has a very colourful toolbox and a special Anything Machine which can solve a multitude of problems.
In each episode, six children visit Nara to play with the Piplings and explore their land, as real life interacts with the animated world, showing that every child can visit Nara and find their own Waybuloo.
Nok Tok sees Lau Lau whistle up to the sky and her narabug come down to land on her head. What a great trick! But when he tries, he discovers he can't whistle. All it seems he can blow are raspberries! Lau Lau tells him to blow gently and to practise.
But when Yo Jojo realises that he is the only Pipling who can't whistle, he wants to get round the process of learning. When the children arrive, he tries to do the narabug call using a whistle stick instead but it doesn't work like real whistling. Then he tries to use his Anything Machine to create a whistle sound, but that doesn't bring his narabug down either.
The children try whistling too but one of them can't. So she encourages Nok Tok to practise with her. Now that he doesn't have to practise alone, Nok Tok applies himself and eventually they finally get the hang of it. Everyone whistles and all the narabugs flutter down and land on their heads.
