Based on the concept of the EastEnders Script Writer, Viv developed the idea further for a commission from CBBC in 2003.

UBOS is a TV cartoon series, shown on CBBC, about three friends at magic school and their fount of all magic, UBOS - the Universal Book of Spells. With UBOS’s help, the friends could have exciting adventures and turn to him to find spells to get them out of trouble.

This Flash e-card application allowed the user to choose a scene, write dialogue, and, most importantly, perform spells on behalf of the characters. These included turning characters into a frog or a stone and making them invisible.

The developers were John Kellett and Chris Henden.
