With the multiple challenges of their size and ignorance of all things Hooman that is Floogal speak for human the Floogals have a lot of work on their hands. They are engaged in the dual processes of discovery and problem solving as nothing on earth is familiar to them. Much like young children they begin by encountering something new and then go through a comedic multi step process of watching listening touching and note taking until they have figured out what and how their new discovery fits into the Hooman universe.

Floogals is an animated show starring three space aliens Fleeker, Flo, and Boomer who have been sent to earth to explore, investigate, discover and report their findings to their superiors at Floogal headquarters. The diminutive Floogals are no taller than a large safety pin and their visual perspective is literally the point of view of the show. With the multiple challenges of their size and ignorance of all things Hooman that is Floogal speak for human, the Floogals have a lot of work on their hands. They are engaged in the dual processes of discovery and problem-solving as nothing on earth is familiar to them. Much like young children, they begin by encountering something new and then go through a comedic multi step process of watching, listening, touching, and note taking until they have figured out what and how their new discovery fits into the Hooman universe.
