Twinkle, the Dream Being is an American animated television series that aired in 1992 in syndication in the U.S. and MBC TV in South Korea for Daejeon Expo 1993. The show was produced by Zodiac Entertainment, Sei Young Anitel and Calico Entertainment and MBC. One season was produced, with 26 episodes.

Synopsis

Twinkle (Korean: 꿈돌이), the Dream Being (voiced by Tress MacNeille), is a little, yellow wish-granting genie who turns the wishes of the inhabitants of the Land of Possibility into reality. Miss Diva Weed tries to stop him and enslave the population of the Land of Possibility.

Twinkle is accompanied by his intergalactic mercenaries Nova and Wishball as he shows the people that with a little bit of magic, anything is possible. Many of the problems are usually caused by Diva Weed and her ridiculous minions, the Hotshots, as Twinkle in most circumstances tries to help them in any way he can while getting them to stick up and believe in themselves.

This show was the last show created by Calico Creations airing in the US from 1992 to 1993.

Characters

  • Twinkle (voiced by Tress MacNeille): The title character, an intergalactic genie
  • Nova (voiced by Russi Taylor): A small, blue star creature that lives on Twinkle's head. She acts as his pilot ship.
  • Wishball (voiced by Pat Fraley): A small, blue ball creature who works alongside Nova. He helps Twinkle fly around.
  • Miss Diva Weed (voiced by Tress MacNeille): A perverse and wicked witch who feeds off the despair of the people. She does everything to stop Twinkle and his plans.
  • Won (voiced by Pat Fraley): One of Diva Weeds' Hotshot minions. He's usually serious about trying to get rid of Twinkle, but can befriend him just as easily.
  • Chu (voiced by Cam Clarke): Diva Weeds' other Hotshot minion. He's usually accommodated with Won but Chu doesn't take his job all that serious in comparison. He's rather bumbling as pointed out by his peers.
  • Urg (voiced by Pat Fraley ): A giant rock monster with a large appetite. Most of the other characters are afraid of him because of his appearance, but is otherwise seen as friendly.
