How the Body Works: Circulatory System

Client: Kid's Health

FlickerLab partnered with, the Web’s most-accessed site on children’s health, to create the animated series, How the Body Works with Chloe and the Nurb. The series offers a playful, animated way for kids to understand how their body works. Totaling 20 episodes, the series is hosted on the website as the centerpieces of a suite of content that includes quizzes and printable activities, and is used in over 30,000 classrooms across the country.

Equal parts Magic School Bus and Monty Python, the series is set in fantastical Bodylandia, where giant eyeballs stride across the landscape, floating noses trumpet daily, and Chloe and the Nurb dive with verve into intestines, ear canals, toenails, and every organ in between.

FlickerLab collaborated closely with the KidsHealth editorial staff to figure out how to communicate complex medical information in language that viewers can understand and use. All the scripts went through rigorous review by pediatricians and medical experts, advisors, ensuring that the information is as up-to-date as possible.
