In the cartoon, 9 main Popples became friends with brother & sister, Bonnie & Billy.
The Popples tend to go overboard trying to help the kids have fun, usually resulting in a very large mess, that they must clean up before the kids parents find out.
The Popples can pull very odd, large items out of their pouches on occasion. (ie: Elephants, anvils etc. )
Later on in the series, a neighbor family moves in with 2 siblings, Penny & Mike who also have their own Popples.
Penny & Mike have the Rock star's, Pufflings & Baby Popples.
Popples are made by "Those Characters from Cleveland," a subsidiary Company of "American Greetings Inc."
