This pet is chosen among four vanity pets as a reward after completing a chain of Children's Week quests that begin in Outland. These quests may be accessed by characters level 60+. See the Guide to Children's Week for a detailed walkthrough of this chain. Other rewards for the final quest include Egbert, Peanut, and Legs. Collecting all four pets on the same character is possible (over the course of four years) since the quests are repeatable each year.

Willy's eye-beam animation activates every 3 minutes. If no critter is in range, the timer resets.

This pet is also available as a FigurePets collectible (series 2).

This guy is one of my favorite subtle jokes in all of WoW.

 

 

His name is Willy... and he has one eye.

 

Yup.

EXTERMINATE!

 

Sorry, I just couldn't resist. Does anyone else think that Willy looks like a Dalek (Minus the casing) from Doctor Who?  A small, tentacled creature with one eye and a thirst for exterminating things.

I really want a Magic Batlte-Stone. I use Willy in my main battle team and he has definate disadvantage compared to my rare pets, but the stone remains elusive.

Unfortunately, Rezzelyn's link is out of date, and now only leads to a boring advert for 5.2. Shame.

I just tested it and Willy's kills do count toward the Critter Kill Squad Achievement.

Is it just me, or have any of you noticed that when you use a Papa Hummel's Pet Biscuit on Willy, you can clearly see that he has a...er...how do I say this...butthole in the back of his...er..head/body? Yes, it was a pretty disturbing discovery for me.

As of Patch 4.2, Willy has been acting strangely. He now sleeps floating in mid-air, where previously, he slept on the ground.

could someone send me a message if they know that willy's eye beam will count toward the critter kill squad achievement?

Edit: yes, it does.

Yesterday, I chose Willy and thought he looked cute for a baby monster. Today I'm feeling regretful after seeing what someone else's monster had done in this semi-disturbing video that Blizz released. Never throw apples at your Willy. Why? See it for yourself!

...Heh.

Allow me to describe his "vocalizations" in better detail, he makes 3 different sounds when clicked on, "Waigh" "Muwaigh" and "Yep!"

There are three pets that I know of that attack critters: Willy here with his eye-beam, Scorchling (with a little fireball), and Lil' K.T. (with a frost tomb).

Hours of critter-nuking fun!!

Edit: Toxic Wasteling "eats" critters now.

Willy has been my favourite pet since I got him.
Hes just SO weird.
Just wish he hadn't been nerfed to have such a long timer on his Eyebeam. Why Blizzard? WHY? Were they worried Willy would make critters an endangered species?

This is a pet that I originally disliked (because he was kind of gross compared to other, fluffier, cuter pets, really.) But I've grown to love him more than most of the regular "animal" pets! He

There was clearly a lot of attention given to this model, especially because they took a pre-existing creature and had to "baby-ize" it. The amount of detail is clear especially with the texture of the flesh and pupil. His cute little teeth are my favorite part. And the noises he makes are perfect. <3

He's slightly evil but extremely narcoleptic. Keep him away from critters!
