New Kids Series Builds Eco Awareness

The new animated series Splash and Bubbles, designed to introduce the concepts of ecological balance and the importance of taking care of the ocean to young children, premieres November 23 on Nine PBS. The series focuses on themes of diversity, individuality, interconnectedness and the celebration of learning and discovery.

Splash and Bubbles follows the adventures of Splash, a yellow fusilier fish who has migrated all over the ocean before settling down in Reeftown, where he befriends Bubbles, a Mandarin dragonet whose vivid orange and electric blue coloring matches her colorful personality. 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. "Through the adventures of Splash and Bubbles, we hope to inspire environmentalism, empathy and curiosity about the vast world of marine biology," said Lisa Henson, CEO of the Jim Henson Company, executive producers of the show. "We hope the series becomes a starting point for children to build confidence in their ability to make a difference in our environment and inspires a lifetime of learning." Digital content related to the series, including games, apps and parent and educator resources are also available.
