Uniqua, Pablo, Tyrone, and Tasha meet their backyard neighbors: a trio of playful critters called the Meerkats, led by the spunky blue Omar.
Costume designer and developer Yvette Helin in New York worked with her team and sculptor Sal Denaro to realize the two-dimensional characters into life size walk-around character costumes. Yugi Yashimoto and Dan Quinn were hired to realize the head sculpts full size and engineer various remote control effects such as moving eyes and mouths. Jim Kroupa (who puppeteered a meerkat) had his company, 3Design, make the Meerkat puppets.
The pilot featured the work of three puppeteers as the Meerkats.
