Despite being a popular series during its broadcast, The Syrupies has all but been forgotten. Hardly anything about it can be found online, no videos, VHS or DVD releases or articles about the series other than this wiki. It is unclear if the episodes have been wiped or whether they still survive somewhere. All we have to go on are some of the puppets used in the series which have been preserved.
Set in a Small English Town, with population of 2 Races, Humans and Underground Syrup-eating humanoid creatures called The Syrupies.
