Add to Watchlist

The WotWots is a New Zealand produced television series catering to children between two and four years of age. The stars of the series are two alien siblings - the blue SpottyWot and pink DottyWot. In an effort to learn more about the planet Earth, the Wots hop into their steam-powered spaceship and end up landing in a zoo. Scooting around in their hoverchairs, brother and sister Wot get a first-hand lesson on the creatures that inhabit our planet with the help of their spaceship's computer.

The WotWots is a hybrid production, with the computer animated, puppet-like siblings inserted over live action footage. Most of the series takes place in various zoological parks, including New Zealand zoos in Auckland and Wellington and Australia's Melbourne zoo. Other scenes are filmed at undisclosed farm and beach locations.

Each episode of The WotWots is ten minutes long and focuses on one particular animal. This normally takes place after Dotty or Spotty perform an action that triggers a query about a certain creature. For example, when the duo discovers a pair of pink legs at the zoo, they learn about flamingoes. In another episode, while the Wots are looking at clouds, they see one resembling a polar bear, leading them to learn more about the artic animal.

The WotWots was created by children's author Martin Baynton and Richard Taylor. Banyton also narrates the series and interacts with the Wots, translating their questions for the viewing audience. The show is produced by Pukeko Pictures with computer animation performed by Weta Workshop. The WotWots premiered in March 2009.
