The kids will love this show as we watch as Splash, Bubbles, and Dunk encounter narwhals, penguins and humpback whales along the way!
Created by the late Jim Henson, the show explores fun facts about sea creatures and marine environments. Yes, that includes reproduction, parasites, and parrotfish poop because, well, it's true that the fish have no lofty goals for their lives; but they are fish, after all!
Furthermore, this lovely, colorfully animated series inspires respect for marine life and the ocean's diversity by pairing the characters' comical adventures with more traditional educational segments.
Splash and Bubbles entices youngsters much the same way Finding Nemo's vibrant scenery and endearing characters did, bringing a certain intimacy to the vast expanse of the ocean through its friendly characters.
Reeftown is a bustling community of all different kinds of marine life, but when Splash and Bubbles explore beyond its boundaries, they discover even more diversity and fascination.
Chock full of wondrous close-up views of the wonders of marine life that will amaze preschoolers and inspire curiosity about more wonders of the underwater world, once the gang returns home to Reeftown, the friends also manage to find the time to listen to the beautiful music of the humpback whale! Well done, 'Splash And Bubbles,' for this show is just incredible and a joy to behold for all kids.This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
