THE KRATT BROTHERS ARE ON THE MOVE IN NEW WILD KRATTS DVD “SUPER SPRINTERS”
“WILD KRATTS: SUPER SPRINTERS” Available from PBS Distribution June 23
PBS KIDS Series WILD KRATTS Helps Kids Learn Science by Exploring Animals and Their “Creature Powers”
In “Wild Kratts: Super Sprinters“, the Kratt brothers are on the move as they learn about two of the fastest creatures in the world: the cheetah and the Peregrine falcon. In each episode, Chris and Martin Kratt take kids and their families on extraordinary animal-themed adventures!
The Kratt Brothers are always on the move, and in this DVD, that is never truer! In “Cheetah Racer,” Chris and Martin think that cheetahs can travel faster than any other creature or vehicle over the rough African savannah, but Aviva and archenemy Zach Varmitech challenge this and compete to build a ground racer that can travel even faster. The speed theme continues with “Falcon City.” In this episode the brothers fly with the world’s fastest animal, the Peregrine falcon. The brothers discover that Varmitech and his Zachbots are threatening to destroy a Peregrine falcon’s nest located on a city building. Can Martin and Chris pull off a high flying rescue? I love how all the Wild Kratt episodes teach children about wildlife and our planet. These two adventurous brothers are one of my favorites and I love to watch Wild Kratts with my daughter as I am usually learning something new as well!
In each episode of WILD KRATTS, creature teachers Chris Kratt and Martin Kratt take kids and their families along on extraordinary animal-powered adventures. The show transforms the Kratt Brothers, creators of the award-winning KRATTS’ CREATURES and Emmy-winning ZOBOOMAFOO, into animated versions of themselves, allowing the real-life zoologists to visit wild animals in their little-seen habitats and showcase key science concepts along the way. WILD KRATTS airs weekdays on PBS KIDS (check local listings). You can read my interview with these two adventurers here.
“SUPER SPRINTERS” is now available on DVD. The DVD run time is approximately 60 minutes and the SRP is $12.99.
Good News! We have a DVD copy of “Super Sprinters” plus a cool companion toy from Wicked Cool Toys, “Cheetah Power”. These two goodies would make a great birthday present for your little adventurer! Good luck be to ye!

The episodes included on this DVD are listed below.
Chris and Martin announce that no creature or vehicle can travel as fast over the rough and tumble African savannah as the cheetah. Aviva takes the challenge and declares she will build a ground racer that can run even faster than a cheetah. Of course Zach wants to prove that he is a better inventor than Aviva and joins the race. The team, inspired by the cheetah, “revs up” to explore the different functions required for speed to build a cheetah racer and win the race.
The Kratt brothers are itching to fly with the world’s fastest animal, the Peregrine falcon, which can hit top speeds of 240 mph. But their efforts are side-tracked when the rest of the Wild Kratts team challenges them to find the falcon in the city instead of in the wild, and Chris’ Creature Power Suit is accidentally activated with Pigeon Powers! But then they discover that Zach is sending his Zachbots to clean off a building that has a Peregrine falcon nest! Martin and Chris must activate their Peregrine falcon powers and harness the force of gravity to pull off a high flying creature rescue!
