Wolfboy and the Everything Factory is an animated television series created by Toff Mazery and Edward Jesse for Apple TV+. It premiered on 24 September 2021 as part of a slate of autumn children's series.

Plot

The series follows Wolfboy, an imaginative oddball who discovers a strange realm at the centre of the earth where fantastical beings called ‘Sprytes’ create things for the world on the surface - clouds, trees, rabbits, dreams, hiccups, memories, time... everything. With the help of his newfound Spryte friends, Xandra and Sprout, Wolfboy learns that not only can he use the creative energy of the Everything Factory to make his wild imagination come to life, but that he is destined to play a central role in an age-old battle between the forces of creation and destruction. He soon comes to realize that being different is what makes him special - and that, ultimately, it’s the oddballs and dreamers who change the world.[1]

Cast

Guest voices include Juno Temple and John Lithgow.
