PBS KIDS Series WILD KRATTS Helps Kids Learn Science
by Exploring Animals and Their “Creature Powers”
Arlington, Va. – March 23, 2016 – PBS Distribution announced today it is releasing four stories from PBS KIDS’ popular WILD KRATTS series on the new DVD “WILD ANIMAL BABIES.” What’s better than exploring nature and meeting amazing animals with the Wild Kratts? Meeting amazing BABY animals with the Wild Kratts, of course! In select adventures on this DVD, the crew helps a very cute (and majorly destructive) baby elephant stay out of trouble, wrangles some playful lion cubs, and cares for their new pal, “Nubs,” a baby rhino.
“WILD ANIMAL BABIES” will be available on DVD May 3, 2016. The DVD run time is approximately 120 minutes and its SRP is $12.99. The stories included on this DVD are listed below.
“Elephant in the Room”
The brothers come across a lone baby elephant and bring him back to the Tortuga HQ for safety until they can find his mom. They quickly learn how mischievous baby elephants can be and get more than they bargained for when it almost destroys the Tortuga!
“Bad Hair Day”
Chris and Martin try to help a lion named “He Who Breathes Fire” get past obstacles and back to his pride, which is under siege from two intruder lions.
Chris and Martin get caught in the middle of a zebra stampede, and when the dust clears, a lone baby zebra is left behind. The Wild Kratts must find the young zebra’s herd and return him to his mom.
“Let the Rhinos Roll!”
The Wild Kratts team is on an important mission to unearth why rhinos are mysteriously disappearing from the African savanna. They soon discover that Zach Varmitech has been kidnapping them to create new super Rhino Dozers so the creature adventurers devise a plan to rescue them – and it just might work!
WILD KRATTS 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. From elephants using physics to suck gallons of water with their trunks to a fleet of peregrine falcons that harness the force of gravity to speed through the air, each episode of WILD KRATTS presents age-appropriate science inspired by the natural abilities of the animals that the Kratt Brothers – and young viewers – meet. WILD KRATTS airs daily on PBS KIDS (check local listings).
