Meet Splash and Bubbles Only At Newport Aquarium
Jim Henson’s Splash and Bubbles are now at Newport Aquarium, but for a limited time only. Now extended by popular demand, families can enjoy a special meet and greet with the stars of the new PBS KIDS TV show.
Shark Ray Bay Theater has been transformed into the hit TV show's Reeftown setting where your family can meet Splash and Bubble and get your picture taken. Plus, see several of the species featured in the show on exhibit in our Shore Gallery.
About the New PBS KIDS Show
Splash and Bubbles follows the adventures of Splash, a yellowback fusilier fish who has traveled the ocean before finding Reeftown. Here he befriends Bubbles, a Mandarin dragonet whose bright colors match her colorful personality. Until Splash came along, Bubbles and their Reeftown neighbors had no idea what lived outside their coral walls. Together, Splash, Bubbles and their friends explore the world's undersea habitats.
Along the way they make new friends and celebrate the importance of diversity.
Splash and Bubbles can be seen on local PBS station, CET. The TV show is co-produced by Newport Aquarium’s parent company, Herschend Enterprises (Herschend Studios) and the Emmy Award winning Jim Henson Company, the producers of Dinosaur Train and Sid the Science Kid.
