Dive into the New Year with everyone’s favorite underwater explorers, the International EMMY-nominated Octonauts, and join them on their mission to “explore, rescue and protect!” Here Come the Octonauts is available on DVD at Walmart and many other retailers and grocery stores nationwide on January 7, 2014, from NCircle Entertainment.
Octonauts, now airing on the Disney Junior block of the Disney Channel, is taking America’s preschool set by storm. Working closely with NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), and advised by a team of marine biologists, Octonauts features fast-paced, high-peril action grounded in scientific discovery and true-to-life exploration of the natural world.
The Octonauts live in an undersea base, the Octopod, where they go on adventures with the help of a fleet of aquatic vehicles. Led by a valiant polar bear, Captain Barnacles, and a daredevil kitten, Kwazii, these eight talented critters are always ready to embark on exciting new missions!
In the six-episode Here Come the Octonauts DVD, Captain Barnacles must figure out how to free an old friend who is trapped beneath the ice; Kwazii tries to rescue a reef full of creatures before an undersea storm strikes; and Peso, the resident medic, must help a school of frightened fish who have invaded the Octopod! Based on the books of the same name by Vicki Wong and Michael Murphy, who write under the name Meomi, the Octonauts received a BAFTA nomination for Best Animated Preschool Show in 2011 and 2013; and in October 2012 was nominated for an International EMMY Award.
And now for some fun and FREE Octonauts activities to enjoy with your child!
