I'm the guy who made those WHOOKOS and Zelda UO flash animations a decade ago. Oh and A.E. Chronics. Currently rebooting all my old work! You can watch all my old animations on my website: scottymation.com! I also take art commissions!
You're definitely right. Skoot hasn't met anyone from WHOOKOS yet at the beginning of this reboot. In fact WHOOKOS doesn't even exist yet in this version. But the group slowly grows in the first season. The first few episodes will be dedicated to the world building.
