New Undersea Series from Jim Henson Now Part of Kid’s Lineup on NPT

splashbubblesThe latest addition to NPT’s children’s programming lineup is Splash and Bubbles, a new series from The Jim Henson Company, producers of Dinosaur Train and Sid the Science Kid. This new series airs 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. Saturday and Sunday on NPT. Splash and Bubbles was designed by a team of marine biologists, digital innovators and educators to show the wonders of the undersea world to children ages four to seven, while also helping them develop social-emotional skills.

Splash and Bubbles uses groundbreaking digital puppetry technology to follow the adventures of Splash, a yellow fusilier fish who has migrated all over the ocean. He now lives in Reeftown, where he has befriended Bubbles, a Mandarin Dragonet whose vivid orange and electric blue coloring matches her colorful personality. Until Splash came along, Bubbles and most of the other Reeftown residents had no idea what lived beyond the cozy confines of their coral walls. Together, Splash, Bubbles and their friends explore the world’s undersea habitats, make new friends and learn about the many different ways life looks and lives in the ocean, celebrating the importance of diversity along the way.

Each Splash and Bubbles episode includes two 11-minute animated stories, as well as live-action content. The series is funded in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and by the National Science Foundation. Videos, games and downloadable activity pages related to the series are available on the PBS Kids/Splash and Bubbles website.
