The Save-Ums is a Canadian CGI animated television series produced by DHX Media. The series premiered on CBC Television as part of the Kids' CBC programming block on March 11, 2003 and ended on July 11, 2006.


The Save-Ums are a group of six characters of various appearances, who help various creatures when they run into difficulty.

Each episode begins with a call on the "adventure screen" (essentially a videophone) from an inhabitant of the world in which the Save-Ums live. The caller describes the difficulty that needs to be solved, and then selected Save-Ums travel to the scene of the problem. There are three different places that the Save-Ums travel to solve problems: Rock World, an island with a large mountain, Lava World, a tropical island with a volcano, and Wave World, which is under the ocean.

The Save-Ums then assist in solving the problem. Each episode ends with the problem being solved and the Save-Ums returning to their headquarters.


The Save-Ums[edit]

  • Jazzi is an enthusiastic girl who dreams to speak the language of wild horses. She is afraid of water and is shown to be the leader in numerous episodes. She also looks out for her younger brother B.B. Jammies, but all the Save-Ums look out for him as well. She is voiced by Tajja Isen.
  • Noodle is a hound dog-like creature who is the most intelligent of the group, and is the most mature, often being the voice of reason letting others see what is right. He often chooses the machines needed for the job and pilots the Subchopper. He is voiced by Mark Rendall and Cameron Ansell.
  • Custard is a cat-eared Save-Um who pilots the Zoomer, and goes on most of the missions. He is voiced by Jordan Francis.
  • Ka-Chung is a hippopotamus-like creature who is one of the toughest Save-Ums; as his name implies, he is well known to shout "Ka-Chung!" as his catchphrase. He pilots the Ka-Drill. He is voiced by Mitchell Eisner.
  • Foo is an angelfish-like creature who is the nicest of the Save-Ums and goes on most of the missions. She flies a jet pack. She is voiced by Aaryn Doyle.
  • B.B. Jammies is Jazzi's younger brother, who has a purple American football-shaped head. Since he is too young to go on missions, he mostly plays with the Puffs. He is voiced by Connor Price.
