Sheira & Loli's Dittydoodle Works bumpers came before the award-winning show produced by WLIW 21 about two girls. This was before the series premiered, so the characters may look different. For instance, the twins look more like Sid and Marty Krofft characters, Ms. Molly wears a different outfit, Eeky is bald and has a clown-type hairstyle, Doodles is thinner, Zippy has smaller eyes and the Funkins are sillier looking.
