Polkaroo was the show’s most iconic character. His name was a combination of “polka dot” and “kangaroo.” From the tips of his pink-lined ears, to the soles of his puffy green feet, he was bright and colourful. He used hand gestures to express himself and repeated his name, “Polkaroo! Polkaroo!” Polkaroo was often greeted with the song “How do you do? How are you? What do you say? Polkaroo.”
