|4||Closed CaptioningVideoTo Sleep With Wombats / All Creatures Big and Small||Episode 1: When a visiting friend of Karla's (Keisha the wombat) turns out to be a night owl, Karla, Bo and Max are exhausted trying to keep up. They're convinced Keisha doesn't sleep! Mama shows them that all animals need sleep to survive and when she finds out that Keisha is a nocturnal wombat, she shows them how some animals sleep during the day. Episode 2: After Max gets stuck between two trees during a game of Follow-The-Leader, he is mildly teased about being "big and round" by Bo. Max's feelings get hurt. Mama decides it's time to show some movies about how — and why — animals come in all different shapes and sizes.||22:10||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|5||Closed CaptioningVideoAnybody Home / Health Habits||Episode 1: While playing out on the savanna, Max, Bo and Karla discover two young bird brothers (Dib and Dab) who appear to be lost and not so good at communicating. So with the help of Mama's movies, the children learn the value of a home and the love that surrounds it. In the end, the movies eventually reveal the home of Dib and Dab. Episode 2: When Max gets a cold and a trip to a special place has to be put off, Mama prescribes rest and plenty of fluids. Max is upset, but Mama shows him that everybody — yes, even animals — gets sick and has to do what is necessary to recover. Sometimes they even take their own kind of "medicine."||22:10||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|6||Closed CaptioningVideoPlay's The Thing / Sam Spades of the Savanna||Episode 1: Bo, Karla and Max can't decide on what game to play — they each have a favorite of their own. Mama’s home movies show them that every animal likes to play differently whether it is swinging, running or gnawing. As a result, the children understand that each of their favorite games actually helps them practice skills they will use later in life. Episode 2: Bo, it seems, has lost his favorite feather…or more accurately, someone seems to have taken it! Mama and the kids go on a mission to solve the mystery of the missing feather.||22:10||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|7||Closed CaptioningVideoI Spy / Eyes, Nose, Ears, and Trunk||Episode 1: Max, when playing "I Spy" with Bo and Karla, feels like he can't keep up. Mama shows him that not only is it okay to move more slowly (especially if you're an elephant), but there's a whole world of things to see when you're not zipping around like a zebra (or a cheetah). Episode 2: Playing "Kick the Coconut" Bo, Max and Karla meet a friendly Fruit Bat named Merlin. He's really good at the game, which, until then, had been Bo's best game. Mama shows the gang a movie about "echolocation," as a way of introducing the other senses. As a result, the kids learn which of their own senses are particularly strong.||22:10||$1.99||View in iTunes|

Our two year old loves Mama Mirabelle. It's a mix of cartoon and real video which is sometimes overlayed (the cartoon interacts with the real video). The real video looks like it came straight from the Discovery Channel and the cartoon characters are great in their own quirky way. This is a very educational show that has the ability to keep little ones entertained for the full episode. Besides the teachings of wildlife, it also teaches life lessons. The only complaint I have is the show is too new and I, err.. the little one, wish there was more episodes!
I reccomend this t.v. show for 3-10 year olds and this is a pretty good t.v. show.
Excellent show that has both animation and "real" video of animals. The "real" portion of the animal video is very high quality resembling Discovery HD.
