Wilson Automatoys would like to invite you to their super funtastic Amusement Park and Zoo, Giddy-Up and Friend's Ranch!
Here at Giddy-Up and Friend's Ranch, we uphold the standards of our Wilson Automatoys founder company: Give a good time to the customers!
Wilson Automatoys, originally known as Alfred Wilson Company, was founded in 1989 by Alfred Wilson. Mr A. Wilson was an entrepeuner and animator for Children's cartoon shows such as the, now-forgotten yet famous in their day, 'Peter the Perky Person' and 'Who's Teddy?'. Mr A. Wilson founded the company as an animation house to create his own series of children's cartoons. Such cartoons as 'Penny Penguin' and 'Loopey' placed anthropomorphised animals in the star role of their own children's TV shows, often in a comedic role.
It was after Mr A. Wilson's death in 2037, due to a heart attack during the animation of his feature film 'Ice Pale and the Four Elves', that his son Desmond Wilson took over the future course of the Alfred Wilson Company. Desmond saw a new market in creating children's toys out of the much loved cast of the Alfred Wilson Company, and without a hitch the toy brands took off to the stars.
By the year 2041, the toy brands had far surpassed the animation division of the company. In an effort to rebrand, Mr Wilson renamed the company Wilson Automatoys and focused most of the company's vast wealth into their latest invention: Giddy-Up Buttercup, a robotic toy that at first was merely a play thing but eventually became the "ultimate in equestrian robotics", a real ridable robotic horse. The success of Giddy-Up was phenomenal, launching an animated television series, several feature films and even story and comic books. Giddy-Up was a star, a poster in every American girls bedrooms. The success of Giddy-Up was even recieved across the seas, in countries as far as Argentina and Germany.
In 2057, Desmond Wilson was on a tour over the [INSERT LOCATION OF PARK HERE] when he came to the conclusion that all of this useless land could be converted into something great, something American. Something that could make him more money. It was here, on this flight, that he drew his first plans for Giddy-Up Buttercup and Friends Ranch. He envisioned an Amusement park, equipped with a Zoo, that would gather visitors from all across America and the world to its gates. Giddy-Up Buttercup would of course be the star of the show, but he could pander to the success of older animated shows like Marvin the Mighty Mouse and Suzi Spider by including themes rides and mascots that would attract their respective audiences too. A test lab would also be erected here, the center of all of Wilson Automatoy's
What Desmond Wilson, millionaire and entertainment mogul, wanted he got and within twelve years Giddy-Up and Friend's Ranch was finished. Celebrities from across the globe were invited to the opening, even the then President of the United States (a close friend of Wilson's) and several influential friends from other business sectors (like the up and coming CEO of Vault-Tec) were in attendance. To put a cherry on the cake, Desmond's wife Minerva bore their first child. A girl, Sally.
As Sally grew, she became the poster child for the company. A bubbly, friendly, cute little girl that loved playing with Giddy-Up Buttercup and all her friends. So, then, who would be chosen to showcase their new Fly-Up Buttercup, a flying version of the Giddy-Up Buttercup toy, than the star child of the company? All was according to plan, the toy had been meticulously tested for safety for years and all mechanical faults had been eased out. The toy was even ready for mass manufacturing, only the reveal was needed. Just before the star studded reveal ceremony of the new Buttercup toy, an eight year old Sally was given a chance to rehearse her reveal performance out over the swamps of North Carolina.
It was this fateful day, October 12th 2077, that the little world the Wilson Automatoys company had crafted came crashing down. In a freak accident involving an unidentified flying object, which onlookers could only claim to be a blue-glowing disc of metal, Sally died. Desmond had his daughter rushed to the test labs beneath Giddy-Up Buttercup and Friend's Ranch, where a privately funded Vault-Tec led autopsy of her body and the footage of the event would take place.
Then the bombs fell.
Wilson's Automatoys ceased to exist, Desmond and his wife had lost their empire, their fortune, their lives, in Nuclear Fire. The amusement park faded out of the national memory, just another abandoned pile of brick, mortar and metal. But that wasn't the end for Giddy-Up Buttercup and Friends, they live on to this day. Ghoulified Mascots, their minds deformed by 'otherworldy' experimentation and the constant showings of their animated shows, have given life to the lines of toys and cartoon characters. Even Little Sally lives on, as the leader of these Mascots. They entertain any visitors that come, earthly or otherwise. They maintain the generators, the rides, even the food court for guests. But beneath such benign behaviour lies the true nature of their mental instability, should you wish to harm the park, or even leave, you won't. They won't let you.
Yet even with the Mascot and automated engineering robots, several sections of the Park have fell into disrepair. Deep in the cavernous interior of the Wilson's Automatoys labs and offices, where not even the psychotic Mascots dare travel, is a darkness left unchecked.
