Parents need to know that Ranger Rob is a fun and upbeat animated series that teaches lessons about the outdoors, animals, and nature.

What's the story?

RANGER ROB is an animated series about a boy who loves outdoor adventures. The  series, a Canadian and British production, features Rob (voiced by Jonah Wineberg), a young ranger who hangs out at the fictitious Big Sky Park, a huge nature preserve that features all sorts of ecosystems and animals. Joining him are his best friends, a friendly yeti named Stomper (Darren Frost) and Dakota (Stephanie Anne Mills), who likes to swing from tree vines. Whether looking for chameleons in time for a show or trying to find Stomper's cousin somewhere in the park, they zip line, sand surf, and do other fun things to get where they want to go. But when an animal or human needs assistance, Ranger Rob goes into action mode and uses some nifty gadgets to help him along. It's a lot of fun, but there's a lot to learn, especially since Rob wants to grow up and be a head ranger at the park like his parents. 

Is it any good?

This fun and colorful series combines friendship and mild adventure to offer lots of educational facts about nature and animals. Throughout each episode, details about specific animals or ecosystems are mentioned. Lessons about nature, including leaving natural wonders alone, and respecting animals' spaces, are directly stated in a single, simple sentence at the end of each segment. 

The episodes are short and active enough to keep young viewers engaged. Despite some odd creatures (like yetis who don't like to be photographed), there isn't anything that's threatening or scary. Overall, Ranger Rob is an upbeat and positive series that offers lots of teachable moments that young kids will understand, and most likely remember.
