The Wuzzles

The Wuzzles was an animated cartoon series created for Saturday morning television, and first aired on September 14, 1985 on CBS. An idea of Michael Eisner for his new Disney television animation studio, the Wuzzles were animal creatures composed of half of one animal and half of another. Only 13 episodes of The Wuzzles were produced.

The Wuzzles starred a variety of short, rounded animal characters (each called a Wuzzle). Each is a roughly even, and colorful, mix of two different animal species (as the theme song sang, "...each with a split personality"). 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, nearly everything on Wuz is mixed together in the same way the Wuzzles are.

The characters in the show were marketed fairly extensively. The characters were featured in children's books, as plush toys, and in a board game.

The Wuzzles failed as a series for Disney where Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears succeeded. Although both premiered on the same day (Gummi Bears on NBC), The Wuzzles simply didn't find ratings momentum, although it does have a fan base today.
