Call of the Blobfish – Episode 4

By Anna Steen

Deep down in the magical world beneath the waves, the wise and ancient Blobfish needs help. Blobfish engages a jumbly bunch of sea creatures who all must overcome their fears and contribute to their united quest for the Blobfish and save their ocean home.

This year, for National Science Week, Kids Story Room presents a Pod Play in 5 episodes entitled Call of the Blobfish.

Call of the Blobfish aligns with the schools theme for National Science Week 2020, Deep Blue – Innovation for the future of our oceans. With Call of the Blobfish, we hope to ignite the curious scientist in children by engaging them in a story of oceans and marine life, and of their importance to human existence.

Call of the Blobfish features some of SA’s favourite actors in Lizzy Falkland and Christopher Pitman.
