Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Duck Quacks Don't Echo is a humorous and informative series that presents fun and interestingly obscure facts, and shows how science, engineering, and research can be applied to test the validity of this trivia. It's pretty mild, but on occasion the comedians hosting the show use some questionable language (for example, "rednecks") and are mildly competitive, which leads to things like crashing into each other and the spitting out food during experiments. All this being said, it's an entertaining show that will appeal to older tweens and teens.
Is It Any Good?
From using treadmills to determine whether shrimp run faster than the average human, to demonstrating the impossibility of eating six saltine crackers in sixty seconds without water, the show combines humor, trivia, and the sciences to create a viewing experience that is both fun and uniquely informative. It also shows how simple experiments can often be conducted to test even the most random information.
Things like determining the distance between toilet spray and your toothbrush in a bathroom can get a little gross, but there's a lot of great things to be learned here. More importantly, it offers a lively and amusing way of getting viewers interested in science, engineering, and research by showing how these subjects can be applied to odd (but amusing) minutiae.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
