Tales of the Beanworld


Happy Bean The Beanworld is the home of the Beans. As you can see from the fellow here, they tend to be pretty happy folk.

Beans have no gender. They refer to each other as "brother" or "sister", but these distinctions are just a moiety [a distinction not based on any characteristic - like the members of a sports team]. Professor Garbanzo and Heyoka are always refered to as "she", while Beanish is refered to as "he".

All beans have a role in the Beanworld. Those that aren't musicians, inventors, or artists are part of the Chow Sol'jer Army. It's their job to get chow from the Hoi-Polloi by going on chow raid.

The beans have a lot of recreational activities on Goof-Off days. There are races, games like slapslat, and dances with music by the Boom'r Band. Beanish produces Look·See·Shows for everyone to enjoy. The beans also teach everything they know to the baby beans.

There are currently 23 beans in the Beanworld:
