William Tennyson and Robert Koddalonth are two brothers who live in Delfinopolis. The brothers have a big list of things to do, and there is something new everyday. The jealous Sandy Sharon is their neighbor, and is always trying to ruin their plans.
Willy and Kody have a good relationship, even though they don't agree all the time, which usually cause the brothers to end up in a mess. Their puffle, Peppy, is a secret agent that works everyday to stop the plans of an evil Polar Bear called Henry P. Bear. Henry's inventions always cause Willy and Kody's inventions to disappear.
Every episode has a "featured character", which is seen on the eycatches and on a small clip during the credits, and is character whose the episode is focused in.

Willy and Kody had a great reception from all the countries it aired, and was one of the most popular shows of the Antarctican world, but the episode "King Koddalonth II" had a bad reception on UnitedTerra because of the line Kody says when Willy is about to attack him: "It's like those hicks say: bring it on!". David Tennyson apologized deeply, but the episode was banned in UnitedTerra and has never broadcasted again since then.
The Snowzerland government treated the episode "Not So Secret Agents" as an insult because of the Snoss man that appears in the episode, who is the leader of the Puffle smuggling. The episode has never been dubbed in German, and thus, has never aired in Snowzerland.
The Yow Kingdom said that they are going to ban all the episodes where the character Scott appears, because they think that "his desire to join the Antarctican Army may influence Yowien kids who watch the show to do the same, and make them dislike the Yowien government". The Penguin Network responded to the Yowien government, saying that they are going to make the episodes anyway, because they "see Scott's personality as an example for kids to fight for what they want". This will cause a big continuity error in the Yowien version off the show, since Scott is going to appear in the series' first movie and in later episodes. Many penguins criticized the Season 4 of Willy and Kody to be pretty offensive and dark, because of the release of the supervillian Neevil, new graphics, and many swear words are heard. The two part special where Neevil appears have been cancelled in some countries.
