What's the story?

ANDY’S WILD WORKOUTS features host Andy Day as he encourages kids to get up and move while learning about animals. Before embarking on an animal adventure, Andy moves and stretches different parts of his body. Once he’s warmed up and ready to go, he travels to the ocean, or the beach, or even the desert, and observes how animals move around in their natural habitats. He then moves his body and imitates the way they move. Throughout it all, Andy invites the viewers to join along with him. 

Is it any good?

It’s a little wacky, but this dynamic series serves as a creative way of getting children to be more active while simultaneously teaching them about animals living in some interesting locations. The movements are child friendly, and Andy encourages them to perform them the best way they can. Meanwhile, he uses the opportunity to show some different animal habitats, including the rainforest, the mountains, and deep in the ocean. To get into the spirit of things, he even wears a few animal costumes. Granted, it’s hard not to laugh, but that's part of the fun, and overall Andy’s Wild Workouts is a positive and constructive kid-friendly show.
