The WotWots

Two friendly aliens traveling in a steam-powered spaceship explore the Earth's many unique environments and the animals inhabiting them in this series for preschoolers. Each episode finds boisterous blue mechanic SpottyWot and his pink twin sister, DottyWot, the ship's captain, making an educational field trip to such areas as a zoo, farm and beach. Made for kids but visually impressive, the show's computer-animated characters are seamlessly integrated into live-action backgrounds by Weta Workshop, the visual-effects company best known for their work on "The Lord of the Rings" film trilogy.
