Numberblocks is a British children's CGI-animated TV series. It debuted on CBeebies on 23 January 2017. It is produced by Blue-Zoo Productions and Alphablocks, the studios that also produce Alphablocks. The show teaches children numeracy including simple arithmetic.

In 2017, the show was nominated for a BAFTA award in the "Learning" category.

Why It Rocks

  1. It's very educational, as it teaches kids math.
  2. Most of the characters are likeable.
  3. The character designs are cute, especially One's.
  4. Impressive and amazing 3D animation for its time.
  5. Colorful visuals.
  6. The show is funny, bright, and fun to watch.
  7. Hilarious jokes, especially coming from Three's juggling acts.
  8. The songs used in the series are catchy and helpful for developing children.
  9. The series finale (More to Explore) actually felt like one, unlike most cartoons.
  10. Pays homage to real-life media, such as Indiana Jones and Star Wars.
  11. Great voice acting.
  12. The theme song is awesome.
  13. "Octoblock, pose! 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8! CHEEEEEEEEEEESE!!!!"
  14. It would also inspire people to make their own Numberblock OCs, Numberblock fan shows (like Numberfanagram) and Numberblock humans, that is a similar way to how Battle for Dream Island inspires people to make their own object shows and object OCs.

Bad Qualities

  1. It may be trying way too hard to be hip and cool, such as in "Thirteen" where Thirteen says "Owo!"
  2. Some of the characters look too uncanny for a preschool show. Especially Zero.
  3. The beginning wasn't very good because of only one Numberblock.
  4. Three can be unlikable at times.
  5. Twenty-Two made his only appearance in "Twenty-One and On", which means that he is a forgotten character with only 1 sentence.
  6. Some innuendos:
    1. In "Blockzilla", when Three says "It wants to munch us, crunch us, and gobble us up!", it is a metaphor for vore.
    2. In "Land of the Giants", Forty looks weird when forming from Thirty and Ten.
    3. In "Eighteen", during the part with 3 Sixes, their Numberlings make the devil's number.

Trivia

  1. The concept started in 2016, featuring only One and Two.
