[video] Martha Speaks - Martha Gives Advice

"What would happen if your dog were suddenly able to speak? Find out on Martha Speaks, an outlandish animated series from the creators of Curious George and Arthur. The series follows the adventures of Martha, whose appetite for alphabet soup gives her the power of human speech. Using her newfound abilities, Martha gets jobs, wears disguises, foils bad guys, wins contests, and orders lots of steaks. Based on best-selling books by Susan Meddaugh, the series is designed to address the substantial vocabulary deficit common to many young children. The series targets children ages 4-7, as well as parents, caregivers, preschool- and early elementary teachers, librarians, and dog lovers." -- iTunes Store

Can she get help in time? / Helen’s cousin Carolina is a little bit older but a lot more fashion-conscious. Helen tries to take her advice, even though she’s pretty happy with how she looks already. Then Martha becomes the new host of a radio advice show, and people start doing some pretty strange things. Will Helen learn whose opinion really matters?
