Lily Macwish
Super Brief Info:
Lily Macwish is the sweet-tempered, friendly and down-to-earth mother of Abbey, Franky, Woodrow and Ronray. Lily works as an assistant to her husband Gavin. Together they do shows at various parks, amusement centers or just at any random streets as magicians, puppeteers and jugglers. Unlike her jolly, loud and goofy husband, Lily is rather gentle, mild and possesses a wonderful tender nature. Her weakness: she doesn’t get mad. When she feels down or upset, she keeps it to herself until she feels better.

Lily loves the flower lily (d’oh). In fact, she always wears one. Lily also loves to write children’s books. She has written and illustrated a dozen of books however none have made it to the public for purchase. She writes them exclusively for her children to read, and also plans to keep the books for her future grandchildren (and great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, and great-great-great-grandchildren, etc.).

Fun / Weird Fact:
Lily can play “Für Elise” on the piano with her toes.

Gavin Macwish
Super Brief Info:

Gavin Macwish is the amusing father of Abbey, Franky, Woodrow and Ronray. He works as a magician, puppeteer, juggler and on rare occasions a street drummer. With his wife, Lily, they perform shows at various parks, amusement centers or just at any random streets. Despite his hardwork, dozens of trophies and super mad skills in juggling, he doesn’t want to become wealthy. He enjoys a simple life with his family and making other people smile.

Gavin loves to go fishing with the whole family but he has never caught any fish in his entire life. The closest to a fish he has ever caught was an empty can of sardines and a fishbowl. He brings the fishbowl every time they go fishing, as he believes that it’s a lucky charm. Another reason is that he has a container to put the fish into – just in case he catches one.

Fun / Weird Fact:
Gavin listens to Christmas songs all year long.

Mrs. Openhart
Super Brief Info:

Mrs. Openhart is a friendly old lady in her late 60′s. She lives by herself with a cat named ‘Captain Squeak‘. She owns a very old duplex, that looks like a castle and it’s located between two super tall buildings.

She has a huge collection of heart-shaped things. From a heart-shaped cup to a heart-shaped bath tub, and from heart-shaped heart paintings to a heart-shaped door, and more! In fact, almost everything you see in her house is heart-shaped — well except Mrs. Hartshape Openhart herself.

She lives on the second floor of the duplex, while the Macwish Family rents the first level. As Gavin and Lily Macwish go to work, Mrs. Openhart looks after their 4-year old triplets (Franky, Ronray and Woodrow) and tells them stories about Bonwiwi, the Wibblets and the magical world secretly located somewhere in the backyard. She always has stories to tell to the children, from out-of-this-world adventures to cupcake-headed creatures! She knows about all these because she claims that she has experienced them when she was the children’s age. However, she strictly warns them that they always have to be good children, in order to gain access to this delightfully fun world.

The Macwish brothers are very curious boys. They will search for this fun fantasy world themselves, and will eventually become best friends with Bonwiwi!

Fun / Weird Fact:
Mrs. Openhart celebrates her birthday every 14th of February even though it’s not her real date of birth — it’s on the 29th of February.

in The Wibblets

Bonwiwi - Belpupu

Simple things are great,
For tomorrow I’ll wait,
Whatever it may bring,
I’ll see you at this swing,

Origin of the name 'Belpupu' : Unknown


Do you ever wonder why wishes take so much time before they come true?

Step into the courtyard of Mrs. Openhart’s old castle and you will be gladly received by whimsy-whoopee creatures called Wibblets! You will discover a fun-fantasy factory where wishes of good children are produced. Welcome to Qesigh — an enchanted wibbly-wobbly wish factory located in the most unexpected place and only visible to honest, obedient and well-behaved kids.

Meet Franky, Woodrow and Ronray — the 4 year old triplets who live at Mrs. Openhart’s castle. In every episode, they meet and befriend someone who happens to have a strong longing for something, whether it be a shiny new bicycle, a bag full of sweet treats, homework which needs to be done, a front tooth and more. The siblings, on behalf of that person they meet, tell that person’s wish to an enchanted wishing well. A wishing well that generously grants wishes of only the pure of hearts. Despite its generosity, the well never gives exactly for what one asks. It grants wishes in unexpected and twisted ways!

With the help of Bonwiwi, the siblings’ closest Wibblet friend, they team up to deliver the wish. Unfortunately, express delivery doesn’t exist in the wish business! Pockets full of patience and sprinkles of sunshine are required. They have to be very careful because each Wibblet has its own unique characteristics and flaws. There are responsible warm-hearted Wibblets who deliver wishes as quick as possible; as well as the not-so-responsible silly Wibblets who delay them as much as they can! The silly Wibblets try every possible way to suspend the delivery, including creating obstacles, deceiving the siblings, stealing wishes and more.

Each episode takes us to this one of a kind thrill ride and brings all the excitement, zings and zips of the maiden voyage a wish takes before it reaches its destination. Come join Bonwiwi, Franky, Woodrow, Ronray, and Captain Squeak — the cat who barks ‘meow-meow!’ — in these unique and magical adventures as they whoosh about on the wings of imagination, delivering surprises and fun!

A wish, indeed, takes time before it comes true… because sometimes it’s not what we want, or why we want it, it’s who delivers it!

*** IMPORTANT!: Please note that Bonwiwi or any of the Wibblets, although they love reindeer, are not associated with the silver-bearded man from the North Pole or with any of his pointy-eared employees. Qesigh is a completely different (and much improved) entity.


In a nutshell:
The Macwish family consists of the parents Gavin and Lily, and their four children: Franky, Woodrow, Ronray and Abbey. They rent a duplex that looks like a castle. It is owned by Mrs. Openhart, who also looks after the triplets during the day, as Gavin and Lily go to work, and as Abbey goes to school. Mrs. Openhart has a cat named Captain Squeak, who thinks he’s a dog, enjoys playing with mice and wears a compass around his neck, hence the name Captain.

Below is just an initial sketch of the Macwish Family. More info and drawings in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
