Wild, Wild, Wild Kratts!

Dear PBS and the Creators of Wild Kratts:

Hello. My name is Mama Bear and I am the mother of two young cubs, Brother Bear and Sugar Bear. They love your new show, Wild Kratts. And by "love it" I mean that you have successfully created the equivalent of crack cocaine for the under 10 sector of my den.

Thank you.

At this juncture, I would like to point out something important that may not yet be on your radar screen - being that you guys are like, rock stars and all. I just thought you guys might want to know that summer officially starts in a mere eleven more days. (Wow! Who knew writing that sentence could actually cause my body to instantaneously break out in a sweat?) Again, I know you guys are busy and all, what with your animals and, oh, getting Congress to fund your network and such. But I think it's important to know that we are girding our loins anxiously preparing for the onslaught joy of summer.

As we make these preparations, "we" are a bit concerned about your show. It seems, dear sirs, that in your haste to create The Show That Will Revive Public Television you forgot one simple thing: making more shows. According to our DVR, you boys have made approximately 6 episodes of Bear Cub Crack. And, while we love those six episodes, I'm afraid that repeating said six episodes for a mere 12 weeks straight might possibly be too much for our family (read: me).

Again, I hate to impose as I know you are busy corporate zoologists. But, if you have a chance in the next - say - eleven days, it would be great if you could create a few more episodes. We're only looking for about sixty or so more. A mere trifle in broadcasting terms, I'm sure.

If you could do so, we would be eternally grateful and would commit to watching only PBS shows for the next 50 years (or until PBS becomes defunct...whichever comes first) and maybe even throwing a few extra bucks your way (only if we get a free coffee mug or Wild Kratts t-shirt out of the deal of course).

Yours Truly,

Mama Bear

P.S. While you are at it, can you do something about that theme song?


  1. My nephew LOVES that show. I've seen 2 episodes and I must say that it's one of the few PSB shows that I can watch without wanting to poke my eyeballs out. Dinosaur Train is another good one. I'm completely out on Max and Ruby, though. I HATE that one!

  2. You might want to check out Wild Kratts on PBS KIDS' website. for hours worth of games and videos to watch.

  3. Isaac can tell you anything you want to know about the peregrine falcon, basilisk lizard, the remora and the caracal... all of which I first learned about at the age of 39 from my 4 year old son. He has asked me to make him a basilisk creature power suit as his Halloween costume. I plan on writing the Kratt Brothers to curse, I mean thank them for that. And you really should look at the website. Isaac loves playing the games, and it's a good diversion for him instead of watching the same episodes over and over again.

    1. Are you nuts?! That's a kid's show for crying out loud! Cursing's not allowed in it! Besides, you don't own anything that the Kratt brothers created.

  4. Feel your pain. I though my DVR was defunct and just missing new episodes. The theme song is akin to Wiggles' songs, right?

  5. I want to thank you for posting this. It feels like the shows can't come fast enough. My 5 year old can recite line for line the 6 episodes that have played for the last 6 months. Good luck with summer.

  6. Are you biased against Wild Kratts or something? It sounds to me that you hate that show. Well, that's your choice if you do. But for you to insult that I love in that way is turn-off to me.

  7. Dearest Anonymous,

    I believe you missed the intended humor through the use of sarcasm in my post. I do not dislike the Wild Kratts. In fact, we all here at the Four Bears Den love the Wild Kratts. Thus, my desire for more episodes.
