Floogals is a ground-breaking mix of photo-real CGI, and live action. Fleeker, Flo and Boomer are pocket-sized alien adventurers on a mission to observe, experience and detail the new and exciting world around them – Planet Earth! Arriving in their spaceship with a bump from the distant planet Floog, the Floogals are on a mission to document everything around them in the peculiar world of “hoomans”. Whilst trying to keep their presence a secret, the innately inquisitive Floogals discover the wonders of our big, exciting and sometimes baffling world as we see it from their tiny perspective – four inches off the ground!
