PBS KIDS Series WILD KRATTS Helps Kids Learn Science
by Exploring Animals and Their “Creature Powers”
Arlington, Va. – March 31, 2015 – PBS Distribution announced today it is releasing “WILD KRATTS: SHARK-TASTIC” on DVD April 14. “SHARK-TASTIC” includes four episodes of the PBS KIDS hit series WILD KRATTS, two of which are bonus episodes! From learning about the favorite prey of great white sharks, to gaining insight into how dolphins communicate, kids will be exposed to fascinating facts about sharks and other sea creatures in this fun-filled DVD. Animals highlighted in these four stories include a hawksbill turtle, dolphins, a tiger shark, a giant pacific octopus, great white sharks, a bowhead whale, a manta ray and many more.
In each episode of WILD KRATTS, creature teachers Chris and Martin Kratt take kids and their families along on extraordinary animal-powered adventures. The show transforms the Kratt Brothers, creators of the award-winning KRATTS’ CREATURES and Emmy-winning ZOBOOMAFOO, into animated versions of themselves, allowing the real-life zoologists to visit wild animals in their little-seen habitats and showcase key science concepts along the way. WILD KRATTS airs weekdays on PBS KIDS (check local listings).
“WILD KRATTS: SHARK-TASTIC”will be available on DVD April 14, 2015. The DVD run time is approximately 60 minutes and its SRP is $12.99.
The episodes included on this DVD are listed below.
When Martin accidentally knocks the creature power suits into a deep Arctic trench, Aviva takes the brothers to search for them in her brand-new octopod submarine. But after the gang encounters what seems to be a very strange new species of underwater octopus, they figure out that something has gone very wrong in the deep sea. In order to set things right, the Wild Kratts team must employ all the amazing superpowers that an octopus has for survival, including ink defense, jet propulsion, tentacle regeneration, and camouflage.
“Tortuga Tune Up”
Aviva loves the Tortuga design, but feels there’s something missing. Martin and Chris realize it can’t really swim, so they decide to get some bio inspiration for this feature by exploring the world of the sea turtles.
The Wild Kratts team is on a mission to decode the secret language of the dolphin with one of Aviva’s new inventions, but a hungry great white shark puts their new animal friends in harm’s way.
“Stuck on Sharks”
Martin and Chris are on a mission to uncover the secret life of the mysterious great white shark. They use Aviva’s incredible remora rocketsub to “stick with” a female shark and soon learn that the giant predator actually has lots of challenges to contend with and that she could help them discover something that no one has ever seen before – the birth of great white shark pups. But when Gourmand sniffs around looking for ingredients for his shark fin soup recipe, the Wild Kratts team must help rescue their new friend.
