Wild Kratts is an American/Canadian children's television series created by zoologists Chris Kratt and Martin Kratt, and produced by their company, Kratt Brothers Company, along with 9 Story Media Group (formerly 9 Story Entertainment).[1] Since it debuted on PBS Kids and PBS Kids Go! on January 3, 2011, with the episodes "Mom of a Croc" and "Whale of a Squid,"[2][3] four seasons containing a total of 118 episodes have been produced. The show is currently airing its fourth season as of July 29, 2015, which began with the episodes "The Last Largest Lobster" and "Stars of the Tide."[3]

ConceptEdit

Wild Kratts centers on the Kratt brothers, Chris Kratt (Chris Kratt) and Martin Kratt (Martin Kratt). Accompanying them are fellow teammates Aviva (Athena Karkanis), an inventor; Koki (Heather Bambrick), a computer expert; and Jimmy Z. (Jonathan Malen), a gamer who functions as a teleporter and the pilot of the Tortuga HQ, a turtle-shaped aircraft that serves as the team's mobile headquarters.[4] Together, they are known as the Wild Kratts.

While traveling around the world to learn about the various animals that inhabit it, the Wild Kratts perform "creature rescues," in which they save the animals from various dilemmas, whether it be getting caught with one of the show's recurring villains, who include inventor Zach Varmitech, fashion designer Donita Donata and her henchman, Dabio, and Chef Gourmand; rebuilding habitats; or if they are young, reuniting them with their families. The Wild Kratts also occasionally enlist children called "Wild Kratts kids," who help the Wild Kratts from their home however they can.

The Wild Kratts often use futuristic and science fiction-like equipment on their adventures. The most prominent are the Creature Power Suits, vests created by Aviva which, along with a disc (called a Creature Power Disc) containing a creature's DNA and an actual DNA sample from the same creature, allow a user to materialize a suit that has a certain creature's abilities, and sometimes its behavior.[5]

Series overviewEdit

Each Wild Kratts episode lasts 26 minutes.[6] All episodes begin with a live-action segment, in which the Kratt brothers introduce the featured animals, habitats, or ecological processes. Afterwards, they ask their "What if?" question, and the show transitions into the animated sequence,[5] which lasts approximately 22 minutes,[6] therefore constituting the majority of the action. Afterwards, the show transitions into a live-action segment that concludes the episode. The last segment is then followed by additional clips about other animals that may or may not relate to the focus subject.
