Long ago, the creatures in the world of Wherezit shared their knowledge freely. One day, a small group of citizens came together to create a substance that could help them further their understanding of the universe, a Substance of Ultimate Knowledge. Bond, one of the members on the committee, was so excited about the project that he decided to do some extra research of his own. One night in his lab, Bond made a little mathematical miscalculation that would change everything. Who knew that the seemingly trivial mistake of adding a dash of cherry pie instead of mathematical pi to an ancient formula would result in the creation of the Green Goo? Now, with the Green Goo swallowing every Whozit, Pirat and Multiplication Mole in its path, these important Whozits (and many more) are on a mission to save their home of Wherezit.
Faster than a speeding bisector, more powerful than a logarithm, able to leap whole numbers in a single bound, it’s Captain Mathinator, the Whozit’s™ resident superhero. Residing in his fortress of fractions, he’s always on hand to save the day whenever danger threatens the good folk of Wherezit™. With his patented addition attack and his trademark division defense, the Captain laughs in the face of compound fractions and scoffs at his nemesis, the Sneaky Subtractor.
My Favorite Math Teacher
In the world of the Whozits, the math teachers are among the most revered of citizens. Ms. M. is somewhat of a legend among the Whozits. She’s credited with teaching Captain Mathinator his trademark Division Defense, and it’s rumored that she’s the one who taught the Sneaky Subtractor how to subtract. Ms. M. was recently honored by the Association of Addition Ambassadors for her “admirable achievement in the ancient art of addition.”
The Sneaky Subtractor began his career as the world’s greatest living expert on subtraction. Whozits™ came from all around to admire his subtraction smarts, and for awhile, he stuck to subtracting his own stuff. Eventually, however, he began to branch out, subtracting stamps from the Whozits’™ letters, and then mailboxes from the Whozits’™ houses. When he attempted to subtract all the pi-cycles in town, Captain Mathinator drove him away, but the Whozits™ still see him sneaking around from time to time.
This Whyzit™ practically lives in his lab, engineering entertainment marvels such as his famous Wholiday fireworks, or compounding concoctions to help the Whozits™. If you find a strange substance in the streets, chances are it escaped from Bond’s lab. He’s suspiciously and notoriously lacking in mathematical prowess for a Whozit, but makes up for this with curiosity and enthusiasm. Bond’s secret to making mixtures that stick is to shake, not stir them, and he drives an Aston Micron, a particle-powered vehicle of his own invention.
