Western Animation / Splash And Bubbles


Splash and Bubbles is a CGI children's show produced by The Jim Henson Company, and created by the creator of Johnny And The Sprites, John Tartaglia. It premiered on PBS Kids on Thanksgiving. The show follows a yellowback fusilier named Splash, and his friends Bubbles (a mandarin dragonet), Ripple (a seahorse), and Dunk (a pufferfish). They explore the reef to venture and make new friends. Each episode also includes a documentary segment, Get Your Feet Wet, which features kids asking questions that are occasionally followed up by a musical number.
