Kids enjoyed this. "Pretty good because the focus was on topics that interest me." They had mixed reactions to the animated characters. "I didn't care for the characters that much. Kevin was okay." "Mostly, the characters made me laugh." "The characters were sort of distracting." "They added majorly to make the information more interesting." They did enjoy the music, especially the Rubbert Plant song. And, they liked learning about eco-systems, life cycles and the differences between animal and plant cells. Overall, some would watch it again, some liked parts of it, and everyone found something they liked.
This animated science video offers a wide range of information in one show. At the beginning, the information and terms are introduced so quickly that it's difficult to grasp them all. As the show progresses, the hosts repeat key points, diagrams are used and the pace of the teaching becomes a bit more balanced with the wealth of information. The animation is two dimensional. One problem is that the visuals are more suited for younger viewers yet the content is more suitable for older ones. It is a good resource for home schoolers or as adjunct materials for science lessons.
