“My two youngest granddaughters’ favorite show is Wallykazam! so they were thrilled to hear the show had approached me to guest star and be the singing voice for their favorite character, Bobgoblin,” said Bennett.  “It was an honor and I had a great time.”
In “Wally Saves the Trollidays!” it’s that time of year when the Jingle Troll makes Trolliday wishes come true.  But when Bobgoblin gets his hands on the sack of magical wishes, Wally has to help him remember the true spirit of the season.
