Mama Canada: Outer Space is definitely unique. I like the use of puppets as characters. It certainly holds some appeal but also can be hard to understand at points.

This Canadian made show is part of a series; it teaches us about the solar system and the planets within it. The key characters are the professor, the kids Nastya and Alex, and a plant named Parsley that tries to help but doesn't always succeed.

The storyline is filled with facts about science, astronomy, and more. The show takes place in a scientist's lab, which has lots of cool details in the background. The camera angles are the pretty much the same throughout the show, although there is one cool angle when they look though the telescope and see the planets. The background sounds are rather other worldly and fit the show. There are no visual effects except when they shape the screen to a circle for the telescope. The director is Sofia Bobriseva; the writer and producer is Maksim Kravshinskii; the voice-over actors are not credited. The kids were very hard to understand as their voices were rather squeaky. The professor is a really fun character; he is nice and helps people learn more about the topic.

The message of this episode is that there is much more out in the universe to explore. Apparently each episode has a different theme. This one is about outer space.

I give this one 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 4 to 8, plus adults. Reviewed by Avalon N., KIDS FIRST!
