Waybuloo explores emotions and relationships, and takes pre-school children on a journey through stories of co-operation, friendship and enjoyment. At its heart, it is a philosophy for a happy life with uplifting themes of happiness and harmony brought vividly to life through a combination of live action and cutting edge CGI animation.
The series is set in a magical place called Nara; a land of happiness and laughter that’s home to four animated Piplings – Yojojo, Lau Lau, Nok Tok and De Li – who interact with children to explore and experience natural and spontaneous routes to happiness: through warmth, friendship, co-operation and citizenship.
