I remember when G & H started on ABC, I was appalled and made huge amounts of fun of them and how lame/bad/stoopid etc...the whole concept was. I got used to it and I'm sure I'll get used to Hootawoman. The kids love her.

Guess they couldn't come up woth a more ridiculous name so went with hootabell....

I know this is ridiculous, but... Sometimes I forget that Hoot isn't real! I KNOW he's not, but yeah...!

Now they have another market. "Must be Pink Mummy" can now buy her daughter Hootabelle pajamas, hats, skirts, shoes, soft toys, action toys, singing plushes, costume dress-ups; plaster a pink Hootabelle on a box of anthrax and Pink Mummy will claw out eyes to buy it.
They're not stupid, they know their market and they know targeting that market leads to insane profits.
The same with Dora the Explorer. Swiper and Boots just weren't tough enough, so they made Diego. Now they can market backpacks, boots, action toys, plastic jaguar toys...for Blue Daddies.
Also extends to Ashoka in Star Wars, Dorothy's Ballet in the Wiggles, female Pikachu in Pokemon...they can extend the profit margin by 50% just by targeting the mums. The kids don't give two damns. But mummy cares...and mummy has the wallet.
