The Kratt Brothers take me back to 5th grade

I got a release Wednesday about the Kratt Brothers coming to the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. The stars of the PBS series “Wild Kratts” will perform two live shows June 26.

Now, if you have no idea who these guys are, you need to check them out even on a blind whim if you have children. The brothers have been making animals entertaining on TV and during live shows since I was in elementary school. Yes, that might have been yesterday, but I was happy to see they’re still around and they’re back at the Maryland Zoo. They’ve visited the venue before (I went at the behest of my family at the age of 10) and they do get kids engaged in wildlife education.

The duo’s new animated show debuted on Maryland Public Television in January, after having a long stint on MPT with other shows. “Kratts’ Creatures,” the original show, first aired on PBS stations in 1994.

Tickets to the show for zoo members are $5 per person, and non-member pays $5 plus general zoo admission. General admission tickets are $16 for adults, $11 for children, and $13 for seniors. Children under 2 are free.

And just for fun, here’s a clip from the Kratt’s Creatures show:
