Adafruit debuts "Circuit Playground" -- a kids' puppet show about electronics

I've written before about Adafruit's "Circuit Playground," a kids' puppet show about electronics (with accompanying coloring book and plushies!). The first episode, "A is for Ampere," just went live and it's a smashing history and explanation of the ampere and the electron.

    Eek – audio problems (and too much morphing on the voices) make it hard to hear pronunciation. :(  Otherwise, serious applause for the great idea of teaching circuits young!!

    I really wanted this to be good.
    the puppets look great and its a great way to teach kids simple stuff about electronics and circuit hacking and stuff, but they really need to work on the production values. the sound issue towards the end should have warranted a reshoot and the puppet’s control rod handler was visible. Just little things but enough to spoil it imo :/
