WordWorld is an American computer-animated children's series on PBS Kids. It ran from September 3, 2007 to January 17, 2011. It takes place in a world where words come alive.

Why It Makes You Want To Play With Words

  1. The idea of using words to represent the things they represent is pretty interesting. For example, the word "ball" transformed into a ball, which is the thing the word represents. Another way to say it is that the things have the letters they have in their name in their body to show their names.
    • This is similar to a way Numberblocks has the idea of using a number of blocks they have for the Numberblocks' body that represent the (total) number of blocks they have and representing the number they are.
    • A special name given to that kind of idea is called "WordThings"
  2. It's very educational, as it teaches kids about words of other things and what the names of the things are.
  3. It not only teaches kids about words and the things they represent, they also teach kids great morals and life lessons. For example, in the episode "The Lost Letter L", it teaches kids that everyone can make mistakes. Another moral the episode teaches is telling someone what your problem is.
  4. The seven main characters who are Dog, Duck, Sheep, Pig, Ant, Frog and Bear are all enjoyable and hilarious.
  5. The show doesn't only focus on the previously mentioned seven main characters, it focuses on different characters as well, thus giving more characters the spotlight, like Bug, Fly, Bee and Shark.
  6. The theme song is very catchy.
  7. The "Build a Word" montages are pretty great.
  8. The music videos in the middle of the episodes are also great.
  9. It even has its own website.
  10. It also has its own YouTube channel, where one episode comes out every week. When every week passes by, every one episode per week is free to watch.
  11. Good animation, even for the early 2010s.
  12. Awesome voice acting that was associated with 4Kids Entertainment, especially from Veronica Taylor and Marc Thompson.
  13. Most of the episodes are enjoyable and even educational.
  14. While not as good as Peep and the Big Wide World, the show has some good humor that is enough to make you laugh nearly every episode!
  15. The way the fourth wall is broken in the show is not annoying, they do so by talking to the narrator instead of the audience. Because of this, it makes this one of the few kid shows that is entertaining for all ages, just like The Backyardigans.

Bad Qualities

  1. The third and last season only had 5 episodes, which is not enough episodes to make a season awesome. Additionally, after those episodes released, the show ended up getting cancelled.
  2. The designs for the WordFriends look pretty weird, especially for the eyes.
  3. The show does have some bad episodes, at least a few. There's one bad episode called "Waterlogged".
  4. The show didn't even use the letter "Q", this makes the letter "Q" unlearned from the show.
  5. That infamous one scene in "Duck's Family Reunion" where Duck was twerking in front of the camera. Yes, really.

Trivia

  • WordWorld is based on the books and the wooden puzzles of the same name.
