Years ago, there was a place called the Land of the Point, because everything in the Land of the Point had one: the barns, the houses, the cars, everything, even the people. Everyone, that is, except Oblio, who was born round-headed. Since he had no point, Oblio, along with his trusty dog, Arrow, was banished to the Pointless Forest. Join them to see what wonders await these two intrepid travelers as they make their way on their amazing, song-filled journey of discovery!
