Noah at one time belonged to the group Tickle Tune Typhoon, and wrote the lyrics for some of their songs, including their theme. He later left the group to become a solo artist.[ citation needed ] In 1985, he released a movie entitled In Search of the Wow Wow Wibble Woggle Wazzie Woodle Woo (WWWWWWW), which was released throughout the U.S. The soundtrack to the video was a previous album by the same name. [3] In 1990, Noah wrote and performed in the independent film Daredreamer.[ citation needed ]

He has produced several albums, one of which is a Christmas album of five original holiday songs, including "Wackbangklinkn'klang Town". Noah attributes his early musical interest to such rock-and-roll artists as Elvis Presley and The Beatles. [1] Noah went on to host the children's show How 'bout That with producer Ken Morrison, which won four Emmys in 1998 in its first season.[ citation needed ]

He now owns the Tim Noah Thumbnail Theater in Snohomish, Washington, which provides performances, music lessons, classes, and open mic nights for children and adults.[ citation needed ]



In Search of the Wow Wow Wibble Woggle Wazzie Woodle Woo

The children's video version of the WWWWWWW album has Noah, dressed in adolescent-style clothing, stuck in his room and imagining his way through a hunt for the WWWWWWW. He wonders "What is a Wow Wow Wibble Woggle Wazzie Woodle Woo?" Various songs toy around with imagination ("Zoom," "If I Was," "Little Miracles"), while others speak of what Tim encounters at school ("Big Booger" speaks of the school bully) and his childhood reaction to rules.

Eventually, Tim concludes that he just can't find the WWWWWWW; however, he is encouraged to continue and his spirits pick up, but then he encounters "Musty Moldy Melvin" and his counterpart Greasy Grimey Gertie, in a song reminiscent of "Monster Mash." The resolution uplifts the concept of friendship and ties the term "Wow Wow Wibble Woggle Wazzie Woodle Woo" to either friendship or imagination (he's talking about friendship to the voice that is his imagination), and at last winds up in a tribute to every child's potential.

This movie was produced on a low-budget. As expressed in the "making-of" section of the DVD version of WWWWWWW, the flat, grey backgrounds were meant to emphasize the bold colors of Noah's costumes and the various sets he "imagines" as an escape from his dull, everyday life. This movie is the winner of four Emmy Awards, A Bronze Award, Houston International Film Festival[ citation needed ].
