What's the story?

EDEBITS is an animated series about Bet, a 10-year-old girl who lives on a scientific base in Antarctica. Bet lives with her parents on Pangea while they research ways to preserve the continent. She accidentally creates five colorful little characters on her computer that somehow become living creatures. Now Arts, Gov, Net, Org, and Com, aka the Edebits, are her best friends, and they help her as she tries to keep baddies from building an oil company in the area, helps preserve seals, and helps keep the natural water sources clean. Meanwhile, Spam and his bailiff Bug, do their best to make the lives of the digital heroes difficult.

Is it any good?

This clever and decidedly "green" series, which was created in Spain, combines lots of ecological messages with entertaining adventures designed to captivate young viewers. Each episode presents the "bad guy" as anything or anyone that will harm the ecosystem in some way, and briefly explains what the harm is in terms children can understand. The protagonists learn some important lessons, too. 

The major role computer technology plays in the series, combined with its pro-environmental message, creates a relevant narrative. But the colorful characters give it the whimsy necessary for kids to enjoy. As a result, Edebits offers great learning opportunities, but does so in a way that children will find entertainingly appealing.  

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about some of the environmental issues discussed in Edebits. What are some of the things threatening Antarctica's ecosystem? What has to be done to protect it? 

  • What exactly are the Edebits? Are they alive? Can they exist outside of a computer? If you could make an object real, what would it be?
