Bumblelion Sketch - Two Times the Fun! by toonbaboon Bumblelion Sketch - Two Times the Fun! by toonbaboon
I was having fun tonight sketching some of the more obscure Disney characters. Who remembers The Wuzzles? Brian Cummings, the voice of Bumblelion, is a good friend of mine. Meeting with him at Denver Comic Con in May inspired me to add this little bundle of fur to my sketch list.

The Wuzzles did not enjoy the same success as Gummi Bears, lasting only one season. It didn't find it's audience and I think it was probably a mistake to push a toy line simultaneously. However, I still think it was a lot of fun, and had some great humor.

I was way too old for the Wuzzles' target market, but I remember the commercials and the toys in stores.

Now that's Bumblelion all right.  You got his expression down perfectly.  Very nicely done.

I can remember actually having a Bumblelion plush as a kid.

Thanks! Yeah, I think my sister had the Mooseal plush. And I recall they made a second wave that never appeared in the series.

Wow! Now here's a cartoon I didn't think anyone remembered anymore. That was such a fun cartoon show, and I simply adore the theme song. =D

I've found, time and time again, that cartoons I assume no one remembers are actually just bubbling under the surface of public consciousness. I have a Cats Don't Dance piece that I show at conventions, and every one of the dozens of people who stop to look at it say, "I didn't think anyone remembered this show." It's a good reminder that things we create for the public have a longer lasting effect than we realize.

A Damn fine pic, indeed. = )

I miss The Wuzzles. I recently re-watched the series and I was surprised that it held up so well. I was also pleasantly surprised at the amount of jokes that I missed as a little kid that I get now. = )
