Wee 3 is a Canadian preschool television series aired on Treehouse TV and Radio-Canada. It first aired on January 30, 2001 with a total of 27 27-minute episodes, along with Treetown, Ants in Your Pants and Crazy Quilt. It also formerly aired in the French-language counterpart on ICI Radio-Canada.

The show also aired new episodes on Treehouse TV and Radio-Canada from January 30, 2001 to June 15, 2002, where repeats of episodes were aired from June 16, 2002 until February 27, 2011. In September 2005, it moved with Treetown, Crazy Quilt and Ants in Your Pants to the "graveyard slots", where all of them (other than Ants in Your Pants, which left in February 2008) stayed until their removal along with The Big Comfy Couch on February 27, 2011.

It centers the friendship and adventures of three, likely four-year-old anthropomorphic toy monsters named Bunwin, Creakie and Pook, who all come out from hiding in a young human child's bedroom and play games in attempt to solve problems. However, they come out only when the child is absent. They work out their fears by playing fantasy adventures targeted towards children between the ages of three and seven years old.

An animated revival of the series was announced by Treehouse TV in March 2019. They had confirmed that Creakie, Pook and Bunwin would be appearing in the animated version of the series, and that it would feature characters from the previous live-action Treehouse shows they stopped airing.

Plot

Bunwin, Creakie and Pook are a trio of small, intriguing four-year-old monsters who all emerge from the nooks and crannies of a young child's bedroom, but these miniature monsters will only come out whenever that said child is not around!

Characters

Original characters

  • Bunwin (voiced by Jane Miller in season one, Dana Glickman in season two and Holly Gauthier-Frankel in the animated series) – An orange and only female monster. Her home is the shelf drawer. Her favorite toy is Dolly, and is playful and inquisitive.
  • Pook (voiced by Jeff Sweeney in the original series, and Christian Potenza in the animated series) – A purple male monster. His home is inside the closet. His favorite toy is Magic Racer, and loves jelly beans.
  • Creakie (voiced by Ruth Barrett in the original series, and Cory Doran in the animated series) – A blue male monster. His home is under the bed. His favorite toy is Cheep Cheep, and nicknames himself "Vance Murdoch". Voiced by Ruth Barrett.
  • Dolly (voiced by Krystal Meadows) – Bunwin's favorite toy. Originally introduced as an inanimate toy character in the earlier seasons, she is prompted to a major role in the animated revival.

Cast

Original voice cast

  • The original cast members of the show only participated in the original, live-action version of the series. They were not confirmed to return for the animated revival of the show, as the cast for the animated version features prominent members of ACTRA.
  • The original cast was also the only cast generation in the entire series to feature puppeteers, as the revival would feature animated versions of the original characters.

Trivia

  • Whenever it shows the whole room, the window can sometimes be seen open with the curtains blowing, or with the curtains closed without any wind blowing from outside.
  • After the first segment ends, it would show the whole room, sometimes Bunwin, Pook, and Creakie can be seen carrying blocks going under the bed before saying Wee 3 off-screen, only when the window is open, but if the window is closed with curtains, then they don't carry blocks going under the bed.
  • Even though Pook and Creakie are male monsters, they would still sometimes wear female dresses.
  • Bunwin, Pook, and Creakie are always able to talk even when their mouths don't move.
  • Pook is the only monster not to have a bellybutton like Creakie and Bunwin do.
  • Sometimes Creakie can be seen with his left ear hanging down.
  • Pook's right ear is hardly seen while his left is seen.
  • Bunwin, Pook, and Creakie are able saying their own names during the theme song and the end credits.
  • Creakie is the only monster that can be found rather bossy sometimes but not all the time.
