Yin Yang Yo is about two rabbit siblings named Yin and Yang that have super hero abilities, such as kung fu and magic, to defeat enemies, such as evil roaches and a moose. With the help of their leader Yo, the old, arrogant panda, they plan to use the way of Woo Foo to save the world from evil. Yin Yang Yo! is an American / UK Animated television series distributed by Walt Disney Television Animation and created by Bob Boyle (also the creator of Nick Jr. series Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!). It is produced in Burbank, California and Toronto, Canada. It is the third Jetix-original show. It was set for a 26 episode release starting in September 2006 on Jetix with a sneak peek on August 26, 2006. It debuted on Jetix UK on February 5, 2007 after a sneak peek preview on January 27, 2007. It made its Canadian television premiere on Family Channel on March 25, 2006. It stars two rabbits named Yin and Yang, and their panda master named Master Yo.
The theme song for Yin Yang Yo! is sung by Cory In The House's Kyle Massey.
Bob Boyle, the show's creator, quoted in an online interview, "That idea came from a trip my wife and I made to Little Tokyo (in Los Angeles). I saw a little girl wearing a shirt that said 'Samurai in Training.' I thought that's cute, and then that a tiny samurai would be not only funny, but hilarious!! and then went to 'what is the cutest' animal and thought of a fluffy little bunny and it took off from there. Always hearing from folks in pitches that an idea didn't have enough boy appeal, or enough girl appeal, I thought why not do both. Have equal characters, or equal importance, boy and girl. Then give them that sibling rivalry." Yo was added a bit later on. Thus, Yin Yang Yo! was born.
Both Boyle and composer Guy Moon formerly worked on "The Fairly OddParents" (Boyle as Art Director and later as Producer) so the style similarities between the earlier show and "Yin Yang Yo!" are frequent.
This show is about two anthromorphic rabbit twins named Yin and Yang that train under Master Yo, a grumpy old panda. They learn the sacred art of Woo Foo, a special type of martial arts that involves might and magic. They must work together to save the world from evil villains and forces that want to destroy, corrupt, or take it over. They gain allies as well as enemies along the way. Among the villains they face are the demonic Night Master, arrogant sexist bodybuilder Ultimoose, psychotic pro-female rights activist Saranoia, Carl, the evil cockroach wizard, Herman, the tyrantial warrior, as well as Yuck, the sinister green rabbit with terrible hygiene.
But through it all, Yin and Yang portray typical siblings; almost always disagreeing with each other, but working together to fight evil.
