The Backyardigans Wiki
Not to be confused with the W-I-O-Wa news announcer.

The announcer is a recurring character in The Backyardigans. He is never shown but speaks in four episodes.


The announcer has only had two lines throughout the series: "To be continued" and "Last time on The Backyardigans." He says "To be continued" in "International Super Spy: Part 1" and "Tale of the Mighty Knights: Part 1". The announcer is heard saying "Previously on The Backyardigans" in "International Super Spy: Part 2" and "Tale of the Mighty Knights: Part 2". When the character says "To be continued," the words are shown on screen. This does not happen when he says, "Last time on The Backyardigans."

In "Robot Rampage: Part 1" and "Robot Rampage: Part 2", both of the announcer's traditional phrases are shown on screen, but the announcer does not speak. In the first two instances in which he is heard, the announcer has a high-pitched male voice. In the final two instances, his voice is provided by a different actor. The character's voice is always very clear.


It is unknown what the provider of the voice looks like, as he has never been shown.


The announcer speaks in four episodes of the series: "International Super Spy: Part 1", "International Super Spy: Part 2", "Tale of the Mighty Knights: Part 1" and "Tale of the Mighty Knights: Part 2". but not Robot Rampage: Part 1, & Robot Rampage: Part 2.
