Mrs. C suggests they help them remember the good times, so the older trio make a home movie for the twins, acting out how they won her at a circus and interviewing the fishbowl toy "Dusty the Diver" (Dev corrects "Reporter Ruby", saying the diver's name was Shirley) who lived with her. The twins burst into tears but smile, Dev reflecting how "Oggy" ate the green flakes (which he says tasted good) and Nev how "Oggy" avoided the orange ones (which she says tasted bad) first.

No.TitleOriginal release date

5"Be Safe"TBA

Broadcast[edit]

Dot. premiered on JimJam in Pan-Europe on May 1, 2017.[68][69] The series will also air on Canal Panda in Portugal, Piwi+ in France, and SVT in Sweden sometime in 2017.[70] Hulu also acquired exclusive SVOD rights to Dot. and the series became available to stream on April 15.[71] The show is currently airing on ABC Kids in Australia,[72] Tiny Pop in United Kingdom and Clan TVE in Spain.

DirecTV had begun distributing the series as of March 2017.[73]

Reception[edit]

Dot. currently holds a 7.6/10 on IMDB from 22 reviews.[74] It got a 5/5 on Common Sense Media, quoting:

"Parents need to know that Dot. is based on a picture book by Randi Zuckerberg and centers on a curious 8-year-old who uses technology, math, and science concepts to learn new things, but it's never at the expense of real-world experiences and the people she cares about. For Dot and her family, it's all about balance, so much attention is given to the times when she acknowledges she's ready to unplug. The show sets out to expose kids -- and girls in particular -- to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts in an inviting, age-appropriate way through the likable, self-confident titular character. As a bonus, it presents Dot's parents as her role models and educator, and her friends as positive influences in her life."[75]

Media information[edit]

An HTML game called Dot's Rangeroo Scavenger Hunt is available on Kids' CBC and Sprout's websites.[when?] An app, Dotopedia, for Android and iOS devices was also released December 12, 2016.
