When the Piplings are feeling happy, they have a moment of "Buloo", this is
when they just float off the ground.
When all the Piplings (Nok Tok, Yojojo, De Li and Lau Lau ) are very happy together they rise and
float up into the blue sky…this is known as "Waybuloo".
De Li is a female character and she has a bright pink body with
large blue eyes and small ears (like a cat). De Li is a little shy and loves gardening.
Nok Tok has a blue body, brown eyes and small round ears on top of his head
(like a bear). Nok Tok loves mending and building things in his workshop.
Lau Lau, she has a lilac body, very big green eyes and long ears (like a rabbit).
Lau Lau loves to paint and do yogo exercises.
Yojojo has large blue eyes and a yellow body, with round ears on the side of
his head – (very much like a monkey). Yojojo is the youngest of the Piplings and loves playing Pipling pipes and

CBeebies in May 09. The creators of Waybuloo describe it as "...a philosophy for a happy life, and is like
nothing children will have ever seen before".
The four computer generated Piplings with their cute big heads and big eyes make up the main
characters, in the second half of each 20 minute show the Piplings are joined by "cheebies" - that is real
children. The Piplings practise yogo, a gentle form of exercise similar to yoga so that the viewers and their
parents can join in.
