- “The Winks are little creatures who live in the land of dream. It's their job to make sure your dreams are of the very highest quality. All day long they are tucked in bed but at night when you're fast asleep they go to work with their help you can be whatever you want. A superhero, a robot, a beautiful fairy or a clown. You can even be a monster...” — Ruff and Tumble's mother
Winks are the titular creatures of 40 Winks who craft good dreams for humankind. Unfortunately out of spite, Nitekap kidnapped all forty of them and imprisoned them within nightmares leaving the two dream warriors, Ruffle and Tumble to rescue them.
