has his eye on you... and he likes what he sees! Finally, someone who understands
him! He is very handsome too... can't you tell? What do you mean he looks
pitiful? Look at that charismatic posture! Wedgehead understands you too.
He sees things the way you see them... OK so he has to stand on his head
to do so, but still! He understands exactly what you mean. Wedgehead and
his best buddy OX are on a mission to prove that humans really do exist,
and he would like you to help them on their quest. The proof can be found
in the snacks! Have any?
is a hard worker, just like you!He works at the local Super Mart and wears
his apron to serve his customers best.Does Super Mart know that Wage works
there? Nope. But Wage doesn't mind. He likes to put things in bags, especially
snacks. Wage is best friends with Babo, but there is always room for one
more (you). The two of them can often be found on the sidewalk trying to
make friends with fire hydrants, phone booths, and other lonely creatures.
Wage hates for anyone to be lonely! What's with that look? Is Wage happy?
Sure he is! He smiles on the inside. The next time you go grocery shopping
remember to take Wage along on your adventures
kind of name is OX? No, not like the animal... OX, as in HUG and KISS! How
can he hug you with such short arms? OX uses his ears! He's not a very good
listener, but he puts his ears to good use in many other ways! Tuck them
in your shirt and take OX on a stroll! OX is great at magic, and his best
trick is turning your stuff into his stuff. His best buddy Wedgehead calls
that stealing, but OX just wants to borrow things from you for a few hundred
years. He promises to put everything back when he's done. What he wants to
steal the most is your heart, and he promises to be your friend if you would
lend him a hand, or an ear... or like two dollars.
lives in an ice cave inside an icebox. Everything he touches turns to ice,
yet he warms your heart! Ice Bat thinks you are cool, and he wants to chill
with you. He wants to hang out with you... or just hang upsidedown, if that's
okay with you. Ice Bat is there for you when you feel like you may be losing
your cool, or getting hot under the collar. Don't panic! Don't stress out!
Just grab Ice Bat, close your web browser, leave the office, and go get some
ice cream! Ice Bat's pointy ears hear ice cream trucks from miles away, and
your round ears hear the boss coming, so better get a move on it!
wants to hang out with you. Why? He needs you. Jeero thinks life is so complicated,
so he needs you to comfort him. Wage and Babo ask him so many questions,
and he isn't sure what makes them think he has any of the answers. Maybe
they think his red nose means he's Jeero The Wise. Well he's not! What time
is it? Jeero has no idea. How do you get from here to there? Don't ask...Jeero
doesn't know! Jeero just wants to sit on the couch with you and eat some
snacks. Is that too much to ask? Jeero doesn't know much, but he does know
that it's time for you to cancel your plans and hang out with the Uglydolls.
will protect you. Having a bad day? Someone giving you a hard time? Babo's
got your back. What babo lacks in mind power, he makes up for in love.He's
everybody's best friend, He will stick with you to the end, and when something
scary happens, he will send you a nice greeting card from wherever it is
he runs away to. A very curious mischievous creature, Babo may need some
guidance and parenting, so make sure to bring him with ou to as many places
as possible.Leaving him alone is fine, but please put all cookies and money
on the highest shelf.
