Liberty's Kids
« on: June 22, 2010, 01:35:27 AM »
http://www.libertyskids.com is animated series for 8-14 year olds.  Takes some "liberties" with historical accounts to plug their main characters in.  Apparently old stuff (from 2003), but I just came across it myself and didn't see it mentioned around here.  I watched a few episodes to preview it.  A bit early for my own kids to watch, but I think it easily bests anything else out there for youngins to get an entertaining taste of history. 

Check it out kids!

I used to watch that show all the time when I was a bit younger.  My younger brother learned a bunch about people, events, and other things about the Revolutionary War from watching that show. :)

I watched that show every chance I got, it is a great show!  O0 I saw the complete show being sold on ebay but it was WAY out of my price range.

I loved Walter Cronkite's voice as Ben Franklin.

I actually was amazed when we first saw it on Public Television. Seemed a bit out of place, right? It was actually the only PBS show my kids were allowed to watch. You're right, the historical liberties were a bit of a stretch at times, but the involvement in Revolutionary era history was more important than accuracy. My kids named their first goldfish George and Martha because of the show - sounds like it worked to me!

I LOVED THAT SHOW! I was so sad when it was canceled :-\  Now that I am older and wiser, I know that not all of the facts are historically accurate, but its a great show and a wonderful start for my little sister :)

Not sure if you have a Netflix account, but I've seen it available there. Both instantly and by DVD. HTH.
