“Two types of fun, wrapped up and rolled into one!”
The Wuzzles was first broadcast on September 14th 1985 and it ran for 13 episodes. It developed from an idea of Michael Eisner for his new Disney television animation studio, the premise is that the main characters are hybrids of two different animals.
The cartoon focused on The Wuzzles – a variety of short, rounded characters that were a combination of two animals; all the characters sport wings on their backs, although only Bumblelion and Butterbear are seemingly capable of flight.
All of the Wuzzles live on the Isle of Wuz. Double species are not limited to the Wuzzles themselves. From the appleberries they eat to the telephonograph in the home, or a luxury home called a castlescraper, nearly everything on Wuz is mixed together in the same way the Wuzzles are.
