The Unknown

Related:

The Unknown is a mysterious world with ghosts, witches, spirits, and monsters in outer space, above the clouds on which it rests. Some of Herbie's lollipops come from the Unknown, and Herbie goes there to learn magic.

Not to be confused with Hades, where the Devil lives, some characters from the Unknown also appear in Hades.
