The Happyloo characters are for younger readers and the charm of their adventures made me compare them favorably to Owly. Most of the stories tell the tale almost entirely through the artwork and so those not even reading yet can enjoy these.

Mariano’s book is half wordless graphic novel and half craft and activity book. It’s unique combination that manages to be fun without seeming too much like a "Book for Educational Purposes."
Happyloo Cartoon Pitch
Happyloo was originaly pitched as a cartoon series by my brother Chris and I before it became the sensational Cartoon Novel it is today. Here for your viewing enjoyment, two Happyloo videos from 2005!
The Happyloo theme song was recorded by me and the video was put together by Chris.
The animatic (rough cut) entitled, “Fridge-A-Phobia,” was written and drawn by me, animated by our pal Chris Durett, and edited by my bro Chris. It features the voice talents of Me as Devon and Meatsauce. My little cousin John (who is taller than me now) as Tickle. My bro Chris and little cousin Kaitlyn as background voices.
Even though Happyloo never made it to the small screen, a google search found an entire fanmade wiki of what the show could have been. I'm not sure if this was a class project or just for fun. All I know is that it's absolutely awesome. Using characters that appearin the "Making Of" section of the book, this unknown fan wrote summaries for 91 episodes, for seven seasons of the Happyloo show that never was. Check it out here!
