Bug Bites | KCET
Insects and dinosaurs capture the hearts and minds of nearly every young child. But while giant lizards are a thing of the past, insects still exist all around us and can be found in the grass just beneath our feet or outside our front door. BUG BITES, a new half-hour children's series, brings life to the miniature world of insects on a gargantuan scale, using a colorful animated cast to explore a world rich in undiscovered secrets. Featuring lovable characters, pop culture, fun experiments and entomology, the series explores a variety of themes over 26 episodes, including team work, acceptance, bravery, communication skills and healthy eating habits. Host and entomologist Adam Lazarus and co-host Gilbert the Roach introduce entomology into each episode through an animated cast of characters that includes: Polly Nator the honeybee; Coldon the ant; Thlug the slug; and Cyndi the centipede, just to name a few. Informative and entertaining, BUG BITES brings the wonders of the insect world into the homes of children, while also teaching about science, conservation, fairness and friendship.
