Way up high in the ROLIE POLIE Sky
Is a little round planet
Of a really swell guy...
Rolie Polie Olie lives on a fantastic planet of blue skies and friendly robots, where every day is a surprise and literally everything comes to life. Harking back to the happy cartoon shorts of the 1930s, it's a world where machines act like people and where Mom and Dad seem to know all the answers. The whole mechanical Rolie Polie family Ping-Pongs around their smiley teapot house, playing and having fun from morning to noon to night. In Rolie Polie Olie land, it's one for all and all for one, little sister Zowie worships her big brother, and ever-loyal Spot is a pal to the end of time. And when things go wrong and all seems lost, a rumba dance can make everything okey dokey once again.
Olie is the hero of Disney's hit TV show Rolie Polie Olie, which Entertainment Weekly called the best new children's show on television this year. Hollywood Reporter said: Little else on television can match the sheer enchantment of Rolie Polie Olie. This is Olie's introduction into the world of children's books, where he can stand side by side with his creator's other award-winning and best-selling classics, Dinosaur Bob, George Shrinks, Bently & egg, Santa Calls, and The Leaf Men.
