Mountain Rescue Hero
In September 2004, Playhouse Disney introduced “Higglytown Heroes”, a new television series which sent its young viewers to a whimsical 3D-animated world known as Higglytown. In the show, four children — Eubie, Wayne, Twinkle, and Kip — and their squirrel friend Fran embark on a series of adventures that range from everyday fun to exciting exploration. Each encounter finds them in need of help, the help of a Higglytown Hero, be it a police officer, a mountain rescue team, or even dentists.
The characters’ design is based on Matryoshka nesting dolls (where one doll fits into another, and into another, etc.).
