W is for… Wonderfalls
I’m not sure how many of you will have heard of Wonderfalls. Just one season of 13 episodes, this was a wacky little show that reminds me of the BBC kids series Shoebox Zoo in some ways though this is much odder.
Jaye works in the Falls souvenir shop at Niagra Falls when inanimate objects start talking to her and guiding her to act based on their often cryptic warnings.
This was a fun and quirky series that was probably always destined to be cancelled too soon.
And a quick nod to Wizards of Waverley Place
A Disney channel show about three wizard siblings; Max, Alex and Justin. When older they must compete to become the only wizard in the family. For now they go to school, work in the family restaurant and learn what they can about magic.
I think my favourite character is Hugh Normous who they meet at Wizard School – he thinks he’s a giant and just has really small things around him to try and feel bigger.
So, do you remember Wonderfalls?
If an inanimate object started talking to you how do you think you’d react?
