Great cartoon featuring Australian animals

Everybody else has posted no comment about this program, whereas I do have a few things to say here. First of all, I find this cartoon entertaining indeed. It's very cute (which I find in plenty of kids cartoons nowadays), the music is awesome and it is really entertaining, not to mention it is educational as well. It sends a well thought out message (eg. Break the big job down in to little jobs) in every episode. And the diversity of the animals in the program just adds to it really well. Great job with adding an Australian animal and combining it with others originating from different countries.

Our review:
Parents say (77 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This show is the perfect combination of learning, high energy characters, and fun music. Work It Out Wombats! takes the important subject of computational thinking, and makes it understandable for young learners. The show's curriculum is developmentally appropriate for preschoolers and is presented in an exciting way. Work It Out Wombats! models positive, learning interactions between children and adults through exploration and play. The show's quality matches -- actually, exceeds, the high expectations viewers have for PBS Kids programming.

Did we miss something on diversity?
