So, where is Waldo and why are we always trying to find him? Internet acting troupe the Online Musical produced an elaborate short musical based on Waldo of the 'Where's Waldo?' book series that finally gives us a reason to look for the guy.

To flesh out the elusive illustrated character, they make him out to be a deadbeat dad whose bailed on baby momma, Wenda, half-brother Odlaw and other pals after high school. Together, they set off in search of the man in the red-and-white shirt.
