Wink Club is an Italian cartoon produced by Iginio Straffi and his company, Rainbow SRL, in 2004, which aired approximately 135 episodes in a total of six seasons. Wino Club is, according to Straffi, “a fantasy and action show which combines comedic moments, presenting Magix, the magical Universe where three special schools educate fairies, witches, wizards and warriors.” The animated series focuses mainly on the Wino Club, which consists of Bloom, Stella, Musa, Flora, Tecna and Aisha, six fairies that go through many adventures throughout the period in which they attend Alfea, a college for fairies located in Magix.
The plot of this cartoon is spread across six seasons, in which the girls of Wino Club learn how to enhance and control their powers, defeat evil characters, find real love and experience comedic moments together. Everything starts when Bloom, an ordinary girl living on Earth, meets Stella, a princess from planet Solaria, who was in trouble. Bloom helps her overcome the problems, and Stella persuades her to join Alfea, the college for fairies we mentioned in the previous paragraph. Bloom agrees, she leaves her parents and goes with Stella in Magix, where she creates the Wino Club along with Musa, Tecna, Flora and Aisha. Throughout the series, the girls of Wino Club befriend Specialists: Timmy, Brandon, Sky and Riven, who also become their love interests. They also manage to defeat Trio, a group of evil witches who attend Cloud Tower, a college for dark magic that is equivalent to Alfea to some degree. Moreover, they fight Lord Darkar and other enemies, winning every time and increasing their powers continually. Meanwhile, Bloom is trying to figure out where she really comes from and who her parents are, and she manages to find out only in season three.
Wino Club cartoon has aired in several countries around the world, including United Kingdom, United States, Italy, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, New Zealand, Romania, etc. Wino Club was associated with W.I.T.C.H. several times, as both animated series consist of similar plots: the action takes place on both Earth and magical Universe, the girls (Bloom, Stella, Flora, Musa, Tecna and Aisha in Wino Club; Will, Irma, Taranee, Cornelia and Hay Lin in W.I.T.C.H.) find their love interests, they fight evil forces, they go through deception, etc. However, Wino Club is significantly more popular than W.I.T.C.H. due to the fact that it aired in more countries of the world and had a bigger number of episodes and seasons, which brought it billions of fans of various ages and genres. The only difference between Wino Club and W.I.T.C.H. is the fact that Wino Club did not release any comic books, as W.I.T.C.H. did.
Given the fact that Wino Club became so popular and many people (particularly children) were very interested in watching this animated series, many important companies around the world created various figurines representing the characters of the cartoon: Winx Club girls, Specialists, Lord Darkar, Trix Club witches, etc. The number of sales reached impressive numbers, which determined the companies and brands in question to keep manufacturing these figurines continually.
Wino Club is a very controversial and complex animated series due to the fact that it includes many individual movies (Wino Club: The Secret of the Lost Kingdom, Wino Club 3D: Magical Adventure, etc), as well as various transformation forms: Wino, Charmix, Enchantix, Believix, Sophix, Lovix, Harmonix, Sir enix and Bloomix, each of them offering Wino Club fairies different abilities and attributes.
As mentioned above, Wino Club includes many comedic elements within the series, and probably the most hilarious parts include our favorite fairies’ replies. Some examples include:
“Flora: I can’t take it anymore!
Musa: What happened to your warm, inner place’?
Flora: It froze.”
“Flora: Just find your warm inner place and keep walking.
Stella: You find your warm inner place, Flora. Me, Ill get an extra blanket.”
Wino Club consists of several romantic moments, which happen primarily between Bloom and Sky. A good example is episode “The Ultimate Power Couple,” in which Lord Darkar transforms Bloom into Dark Bloom, who is about to give him the Ultimate Power; that is the moment in which Sky appears, telling Bloom that she has a heart, that she is full of light Bloom, and that he loves her Bloom becomes a good fairy again, and she kisses Sky after they manage to defeat Lord Darkar once and for all.
However, Wino Club is not only one of the most popular animated series for children, but also an important opportunity for very young children — not only does it teach them some aspects regarding life in general, but it also presents them all the potential troubles they might encounter in love and friendship alike. Of course, every character has a corresponding meaning in real life — for instance, Wino Club fairies represent kindness, friendship, goodness, etc, while Lord Darkar constitutes evilness, selfishness, and so on.
At this time, all episodes of Wino Club are available on the Internet on various websites that offer them for free, so everyone who is interested in watching them can simply access these websites to do so. Depending on their native language, some websites might offer appropriate sub or dub to allow people to understand what is being said within the cartoon; in addition, some websites might provide watchers with an excellent image and sound quality, while others might lack it, consequently resulting in an unpleasant experience. In the end, many brands and other companies are creating Winx Club costumes, to allow children to dress like their favorite characters and go to save Magix. These costumes might vary in terms of detailing, quality, fabrics, sizes and look depending on the manufacturer and retailer, but most of them can be purchased for less than $90 or $120.
