The Putt-Putt series is a collection of children's adventure and puzzle games created by Humongous Entertainment. They primarily involve clicking to get to a destination, although some sub-quests and mini-games involve the keyboard. The titular character, Putt-Putt, a purple anthropomorphic car, and his pet dog, Pep, travel to various locations.

History

Putt-Putt was originally created by Shelley Day as a series of bedtime stories for her son, Travis; the first story involved Putt-Putt saving a cat caught in a tree.[1] When Humongous Entertainment was founded in 1992, Putt-Putt Joins the Parade became both the first Humongous release and the first Putt-Putt game. Child actor Jason Ellefson did Putt-Putt's voice for several of the games.
