The Save-Ums is a Canadian CGI animated superhero children's television series produced by Decode Entertainment. The series premiered on CBC Television as part of the Kids' CBC programming block on March 11, 2003 and ended on July 11, 2006.

Synopsis[edit]

The Save-Ums, which consist of Jazzi, Noodle, Custard, Ka-Chung, Foo and B.B. Jammies, are a group of six characters of various appearances, who help various creatures when they run into difficulty.

Each episode begins with a call on the "adventure screen" (essentially a videophone) from an inhabitant of the world in which the Save-Ums live; the caller describes the difficulty that needs to be solved, and then selected Save-Ums travel to the scene of the problem. There are three different places that the Save-Ums travel to solve problems: Rock World, an island with a large mountain, Lava World, a tropical island with a volcano, and Wave World, which is under the ocean.

The Save-Ums then assist in solving the problem; each episode ends with the problem being solved and the Save-Ums returning to their headquarters.

Characters[edit]

The Save-Ums[edit]

  • Jazzi is a passionate girl who dreams to speak the language of wild horses. She is afraid of water and is shown to be the leader in numerous episodes, she also looks out for her younger brother B.B. Jammies, but all the Save-Ums look out for him as well, she was voiced by Tajja Isen.
  • Noodle (Caboche in the French dub) is a hound dog-like creature who is the most intelligent of the group (and is the most mature) often being the voice of reason letting others see what is right. He often chooses the machines needed for the job and pilots the Subchopper, he was voiced by Mark Rendall (Season 1) and Cameron Ansell (Season 2).
  • Custard (Berlingot in the French dub) is a cool cat-eared Save-Um who pilots the Zoomer and goes on most of the missions. He is known for saying "Bam!" when he gets an idea. He was voiced by Jordan Francis.
  • Ka-Chung (Aïkido in the French dub) is a hippopotamus-like creature who is the toughest Save-Ums. As his name implies, he is well known to shout "Ka-Chung!" as his catchphrase. He pilots the Ka-Drill, he was voiced by Mitchell Eisner.
  • Foo (Louna in the French dub) is an angelfish-like creature who is the nicest of the Save-Ums and goes on most of the missions. She flies a jet pack, she was voiced by Aaryn Doyle.
  • B.B. Jammies (Bébé Jimmy in the French dub) is Jazzi's younger brother, who has a purple American football-shaped head. Since he is too young to go on missions, he mostly plays with the Puffs, he was voiced by Connor Price.

Recurring characters[edit]

  • Puffs are six little fluffy characters who live and play with the Save-Ums, but don't go on any missions. They sometimes are a help to them.
  • Winston is a bespectacled whale who lives in Wave World and has an underwater garden. He was voiced by Asa Perlman (impersonating Woody Allen)
  • Andre is a seahorse who lives in Wave World. He is voiced by Amanda Soha.
  • Olena is an octopus who lives in Wave World. She is voiced by Sugar Lyn Beard.
  • Raymundo and Peque are ants who live in Lava World. Raymundo was voiced by Carlos Díaz.
  • Oscar and Tina are monkeys who live in Lava World. They were voiced by Benny Shilling, Scott Beaudin (sometimes) and Melanie Tonello.
  • Dino is a baby dinosaur babysat by Raymundo and Peque, who lives in Lava World.
