'Wolfboy and the Everything Factory' Is the Next Great Weird Kids' Show
In a sea of kids’ cartoons that all tend to kind of look the same, it turns out that one new show, Wolfboy and the Everything Factory, actually feels wildly different. Brand new on Apple TV, this series follows an the titular Wolfboy as he enters a world that feels like a mishmash of The Point and the best aspects of Dr. Seuss mixed with high fantasy.
In other words, this show is big on magic and quirkiness, in a combination that comes across a little edgy and odd. And again, the animation style feels unique, almost retro, which helps for parents who are sick of having their kids watch the same kind of flat, CGI-ish animated palette of kids’ media. Fatherly is happy to present this exclusive clip from Wolfboy and the Everything Factor. Watch the clip above!
Here’s how Apple describes the series:
“Wolfboy is an imaginative oddball who discovers a strange realm at the center of the earth where fantastical beings called ‘Sprytes’ create things for the natural world on the surface – clouds, trees, rabbits, dreams, hiccups, memories, time… everything! With his newfound Spryte friends, Wolfboy learns that not only can he use the creative energy of the Everything Factory to make his wild imagination come to life, but that he is destined to play a central role in an age-old battle between the forces of creation and destruction. Wolfboy soon comes to realize that being different is what makes him special – and that, ultimately, it’s the oddballs and dreamers who change the world.”
