     The three Oogieloves, Goobie, Zoozie and Toofie, had planned a surprise birthday party for their friend Schluufy the pillow. They were going to give him five magic balloons but their friend who was delivering the balloons to them accidentally let them go and fly into the sky when his bike crashed. 

     The Oogieloves then got on their bikes to find the balloons and the adventure begins. 

     The entire idea for this flick which was targeted to children ages 3 to 7 had the right intentions but totally missed the mark. They tried to re-create the 1950's in look and style. The soda shop scene is a prime example because those type of shops like the drive-in burger places with the roller skating waitresses don't exist any more and children today can't relate. The children are asked to get up and dance in certain spots in the film. The Oogieloves are ugly and floppy looking, slow and not very entertaining. The children today are computer savvy and need a fast pace with action to keep their attention.       

     This may be why this project was a complete flop at the box office with only a measly $443,901 take with 2,160 screens its opening weekend which is a new low record. This puts Oogieloves at the rank bottom of the barrel with "Ishtar" as the worst film in history. This is a shew-in for a Razzie Award!
