What is a Blue Wombat?

My blog was getting depressing so I decided to write about something lighter.

Last night Ken and I were watching a marathon on SyFy Channel. It was a
Green Hornet marathon staring Van Williams and Bruce Lee as Kato. I used to love that series. It’s still good but it is slower and less NOW than current series are. Of course. The thing that caught my eye was the commercial for

I plan on watching the new movie but probably won’t get to until it comes out on dvd or Netflix or until it comes out on TV not because I want to wait but because getting  to the theater is difficult. However, the one scene of the commercial that made me giggle was where Green Hornet played by Seth Rogen is talking to Kato played by Jay Chou.

Green Hornet says “I’m the Green Hornet and you will be the Blue Wombat.”

So I got to wondering what is a Blue Wombat?

So I looked it up on the Internet.

1. There is a Blue Wombat Facebook Page at

2. I found a Maternity T-Shirt at

They also have a ton of Wombat stuff if you're interested.

3. There’s a publishing company in Ohio. You can find information about it at

I also found out what a Wombat is. According to Wikipedia:
Wombats are Australian marsupials; they are short-legged, muscular quadrupeds, approximately 1 metre (39 in) in length with a very short tail. They are found in forested, mountainous, and heathland areas of south-eastern Australia and Tasmania. The name wombat comes from the Eora Aboriginal community who were the original inhabitants of the Sydney area.

So now, when you go see The Green Hornet you will be in on the joke.

I used to play a video game online and i always played as Wombat with a bright blue color. I was wondering if one of the writers played COD and is refering to me. I played as Wombat using the color blue from 2002-2005.
