What is Uniqua on the Backyardigans?

She's just unique! The makers of the show say she's just a unique invention, hence the name Uniqua! Our entire household loves this show, even my husband!

I always thought of her as a snail without her shell. Maybe her overalls are supposed to be her shell?

I never thought about this one. She must be some type of insect.Maybe she is a mix of two type of animals.

My husband and I think she is an insect of sorts. But we don't have a real answer either. And it bothers me.
