A village of pastel-colored Weebles (footless friends who wobble but don't fall down) promote timeless themes of sharing, teamwork, and bravery in this 38-minute collection of pint-sized tales and toe tappin' songs from the folks at Playskool. In the opening episode, viewers are introduced to Weebleville, a meticulous burg that is about to get messy. Bumpus has found a mysterious package encrusted in mud, and is curious to discover its intended recipient. How to clean off the muck? His pals try singing it away and whistling it away, before collectively sharing ideas toward a solution. In another story, Tooey learns a high-flying lesson in conquering her fears when she attempts to ride her motorbike over a tower of donuts. Later, we join the Weebles on a camping trip that goes quickly awry when one pal gets lost and the others must use teamwork to save the day. Though the repeated theme song grows tiresome to adult bystanders, these benign, sugary sweet stories play well to a very young audience, though a steady diet of them may become sugar overload.
