Comments: Created by Peque Gallaga.
Originally appearing in a movie, the characters were sufficiently successful to spawn a short lived TV series. There was a comic book series published by Sonic Publishing, which expanded the story from the movie. Both the film and comic were sponsored by McDonalds.
