Wogglebug Love Productions is a growing franchise started by Cynthia Hanson. The character of the Wogglebug is from the Oz books series by L. Frank Baum. The Wogglebug started out as a lovable hero who was just set in the wrong place, at the wrong time, and with the wrong people and in the wrong situations. As Baum kept writing more and more to his Oz series without planning to beforehand Mr. Wogglebug's lovable image faded away as the character dissolved into the background, no longer important or needed. If Baum (or his wife) had only the presence of mind to just make Mr. Wogglebug a star of his own book and fandom that was not directly connected to the Oz fandom then Mr. H.M. Wogglebug T.E. would have been given a better place for him to live happily to exercise his intellectual prowess and also be in more appropriate company.

It is known the H.M. at the beginning of the character's name stands for "Highly Magnified" and the T.E. at the end of his name stands for "Thoroughly Educated." Though what does the word "woggle" actually mean? The word "woggle" means wisdom and love in a collective sense and at the same time implies how it can go one way or the other depending on which is emphasized the most, or neglected the most. Cynthia Hanson conveys this profound truth in devoting a whole new franchise of movies, toys, and books based around her vision of the Wogglebug. For the purpose of enabling him to live up to his credentials to the fullest height and best degree. The Wogglebug as a character is all of these: Insect, human, gentleman, clown, teacher, student, leader, wanderer, outsider, hero, and center-of-influence. Respectfully.


Which is where the movie series comes in next. There he has a new life in a land called Genoma as if he was never in Oz at all. It is aimed toward general audiences, and children will find him an inspirational role model through both the picture books and animated movies released directly to DVD. A total of 10 feature-length movies are planned, and 20 short movies. And at least 30 to 40 picture books. The Wogglebug in the movies is in some ways a re-imagining of Baum's version, which is because he lives in a different place and around different supporting characters and encounters very different adventures that enabled him to be a real genuine hero. 

Mr. Wogglebug's franchise is about childrens education in ways that help them learn life skills and also how to think for themselves and in critical ways and to help them gain healthy self-esteem. His movies and picture books mostly take place in a fantasy environment in a land called Genoma. A seven-year old girl named Sylvie from America enters Genoma via a magic key and from there she and Mr. Wogglebug set on an intertwining journey in which they grow up together. That is, the Wogglebug helps Sylvie in the aforementioned ways that I hope many children can find inspiration and value from, while the Wogglebug gains the status in his own world his heart is set on gaining and in all the right ways. He achieves respect through honesty, courage, perseverance, courtesy, kindness, loyalty, and humility. And learns wisdom comes from intelligence through honesty and good intentions, deep unconditional love, optimism in the sheer joy of being alive, and natural growth. There are also two movies as sort of "bookends" that exhibit his personal growth. Then in the final movie he returns to the real world when the three children he knows in it have all become adults and they bring him into the world intentionally to help them. And having gained a ton of wisdom from his adventures with Sylvie and being able to remember the experience he endured from before in the real world he is able to be a true hero all around now by intention.

Cynthia Hanson is the writer, screenwriter, director, producer, and animator of these movies of 3D animation, and makes short and feature length films starring Mr. Wogglebug. Favoring the genres of Family, Fantasy, and Sci-Fi. She works with a professional voice actor who voices the Wogglebug to perfection. Mr. Wogglebug and his voice brings a lot of happiness. So it is her most sincere hope that these will bring much happiness to a lot of others, and your children also.
