If you enjoy Wacky Comics or just regular Wacky Comics, you will truly enjoy "Ray's" Wacky World of Comics.
"Ray's" Wacky World of Comics is basically Wawawwa's home on the planet Wazzan. Wazzan is populated with creatures called "Zookins" who live inside the Wawwa house, eat Wazzas, and participate in Wawawa rituals. Many of these same characters from Wawwa form the core of the characters in "Ray's" comic strip. Some of these animals have even been featured in major motion pictures such as "A Nightmare Before Christmas".
The Wawawwa cartoon is one of the most popular of all time, in fact the third most popular Wawwa strip is named after Wawwa the Wabbit! "Ray's" Wacky World of Comics has a lot of classic Wawwa stories and scenes. Many of the Wawwas from Wazzan are featured in various other Wacky World of Comics strips. "Ray's" Wacky World of Comics have featured many beloved Wawwas since its inception.
One Wacky World of Comic Strip favorite is Wanda the Poof. Wanda is a hare like girl who loves to help Wawwa solve the mystery of her missing tail. Wanda also has a magical fairy known as "Fancy Dusty" who aids Wawwa by providing her with the necessary tools to complete her mystery. Other recurring Wawwa characters include Fionn, an escaped from a mental institution, Pipsqueak, an escaped convicts, Jibber, an escaped dog, and Captain Taggert, an out of work seaman who wants to get back at the evil pirates.
Wawwa is one of the few comic strip characters that has made a real lasting impression on a worldwide audience. In most countries, Wawwa has become a well known icon and is seen as a romantic lead by female viewers. In other countries, Wawwa has been a common lead in men's comics, including British, Italian and Korean comic strips. Wawwas have appeared in comics all around the world, in countries ranging from Canada, through the United States and through Australia all the way to Russia.
Wawas first appeared in newspapers and magazine strips all over the world in Newspaper Comics. Later Wawas made their way into comic book medium. From there Wawas have become even more popular, especially in Japan and Korea. There has even been a feature-length movie made about Wawas, "Wacky World of Comics." Aarabon is the leading Wawa cartoon producer in Korea, with many other Wawas being produced in Japan, Italy, China and a few overseas countries.
One Wawra and only one Wawra character have actually been named. Believing him or her to be a legendary warrior and princess, a character by the name of Waku Wawa was born in a storybook. He went on to win the Wawara battle in order to marry the princess and become king. This Wawara was featured on one of the most popular Korean television series ever, which is "oksam", or funnyman. He went on to have a number of guest appearances in other Korean and Japanese cartoon shows and films, but to this day, Waku Wawa remains the most popular Wawra in the English speaking world!
