A little of both I guess. The story behind them was loosely based on the 12toes school-house rock, about a tall skinny farmboy who meets a little tux-wearing, top-hatted, barefooted alien. Except here the boy is a little girl and the alien is tall and skinny and not an alien per say but a star that came to the girl's farm and took the form of something she could better comprehend, which ended up resembling a combination of a sock monkey her long deceased mother had made for her and a gentleman like her more recently deceased father. And using his ability to transform himself and other things, the two of them travel around in search of others who had wished on said star in order to turn their wishes into realities. That may be the most I've ever explained anything on this site.
