Team UmizoomiSpring 2012 Television
Mighty Math powers rule the day in the City of Umi, where the streets are paved with Origami. Milli, her brother Geo and their Robot friend Bot find a task to complete each episode often dealing with music and math and other preschool concepts. Milli, a cute computer animated character, chats directly with viewers, engaging them in problem solving, discerning shapes and patterns, as well as counting and sequencing. The show includes clever concepts that get kids looking at math in a practical way-Milli can measure things with her pony tail and Geo has a belt that can recreate geometric shapes. Bot, their best friend robot, has a Belly screen that bridges the show's fantasy world with live action sequences of kids who need math help. Sometimes even this crew needs help, such as when Bot gets carried away, literally, while wearing Roller skates, or when a boy needs the team's problem solving skills to save a blue mermaid. When problems are solved, everyone is encouraged to dance the Umi Shake!
