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] The show's third season, announced on April 22, 2013,[2] originally ran from April 7, 2014 to July 22, 2015, beginning with the episode "The Hermit Crab Shell Exchange" and concluding with the episodes "Mini Madagascar" and "Fossa-Palooza."[3][4]

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.[5] 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.[6]
