Watch Waybuloo

Waybuloo is a Canadian and British television series designed for young children. The show incorporates both live action and CGI animation. Set in the land of Nara, this show has four main characters, known collectively as the Piplings. The main characters all have large eyes, animal ears and large heads. The Piplings names are Nok Tok, De Li, Lau Lau and Yojojo. The Piplings are fond of an exercise called Yogo, which is similar to gentle Yoga. Direct sunlight activates an ancient machine which cues each Yogo session. Viewers are encouraged to participate in the exercises demonstrated. The Piplings also have pets called Narabugs which are shaped like butterflies. The Narabugs are the same colors as The Piplings. The last half of the show is dedicated to showing real children, called Cheebies, participate in Yogo sessions and help the Piplings discover solutions to problems.

The show, created by Dan Good and Absolutely Cuckoo, was first aired on CBeebies in May 2009. The Yogo exercises used on the show are created by the show's producers with the help of a pediatrician and a health and safety consultant. The show's creators encourage parents and children to use caution when practicing Yogo. They also encourage viewers to consult with a physician before trying any new exercise.

The show was developed by Zodiac Media Group and DHX Media. Waybuloo is DHX Media's second CGI animated television show. The head writer for the show is Marc Seal. Each show is directed and animated by Gallus Entertainment for Decode Entertainment. Post production work including sound design, editing and final audio is completed by Platform Post Production. In Canada, the show is part of RDF Media's subsidiary company, The Foundation.
