ABC4Kids’ popular series ‘Octonauts’ follows a team of adventure heroes who dive into action whenever there is trouble under the sea.
In a fleet of aquatic vehicles, the Octonauts rescue amazing sea creatures, explore incredible new underwater worlds and often save the day before returning safely to their home base, the Octopod.
Buoyed by the companionship of three leading characters – Captain Barnacles Bear, Lieutenant Kwazii Cat and Medic Peso Penguin – the Octonauts are always ready to embark on an exciting new mission.
In this 25 minute special – ‘The Octonauts and the Great Christmas Rescue’- the Octonauts travel to Professor Inkling’s childhood home for Christmas – an undersea mountain. But they discover that a rockslide has endangered the local creatures – including a rare species of golden coral, and Inkling’s little octopus nephew, Squirt.
With the help of the Octonauts’ latest invention, the Gup-X, they must rescue the creatures and save Christmas.
