Where’s Wally (aka Where’s Waldo) all set for a Classic Media comeback

'Where's Wally?' All Set for a Comeback

It’s been asked since 1991, when its cartoon adaptation first aired, but we may finally have the answer to “Where’s Wally?” and the answer is: all over the world, now that Classic Media has licensed the property in Australia, Japan, and Western Europe. This is in addition to the recent agreements across the United Kingdom. Where’s Wally?, which is published in Canada and the US as Where’s Waldo?, follows the adventures of Wally and his pet dog Woof as they travel all over the world, helping solve mysteries and lending a helping hand wherever they could. With the help of a magic walking stick, Wally can travel through space and time, but must also fend off attempts by the evil Wally look-alike named Odlaw (Waldo spelled backwards, see what they did there?) to steal the magic stick.

Fanimation: From Pixar to Richard Sargent robots asking where’s Wall-E

Fanimation: From Pixar to Richard Sargent robots asking where's Wall-E

Throughout the history of Hollywood, there’s been an incredible collection of robots. C-3PO and R2-D2 from Star Wars, Bender from Futurama, Rosie from the Jetsons, countless Tarnsformers and Go-Bots, etc. Hopewell Studio’s Richard Sargent, through a process that must have seemed bionic, actually sat down to draw a collage of nearly 200 bots, posing together in a classic group shot, and hiding one of animation’s favorite bots: Wall-E from the recent Disney and Pixar film. It’s a Where’s Wall-E game, just like the classic Where’s Waldo ones. Sure, it’s awesome to hunt for the little guy, but even more enjoyable just going through the entire project, looking for all the other robots you remember. In fact, there’s even a blank version so that you can number your guesses to see how many you can name. Give it a try!
