For Halloween This Year, I'm Going Watch A Creepy Creatures Children's Documentary

Are there young children in your home?

Are you looking for a video program that has a Halloween feel but that is still educational?

Any child who enjoys animals and bugs will enjoy National Geographic's Creepy Creatures, Animal Atlas' Creepy Creatures and The World's Biggest and Baddest Bugs, four top-rated programs.

As Amazon says, 'You'll come face-to-fang with everything that slithers, scuttles, flaps or attacks in this hair-raising, skin-crawling festival of fright."

Meet Clawdette, a black cat and the host of National Geographic's Creepy Creatures. She wants to introduce a ghoulish gathering of creepy creatures. She will introduce you to vampire bats, black widows, snakes, carnivorous plants, komodo dragons, lizards and beetles. This nature documentary is a short, humorous look at the creepy side of nature that will no doubt elicit laughter from your children as Clawdette shares plenty of clich├ęs, puns and one-liners.


"My son, who loves creepy crawling thiings, loved this dvd and has watched it to the point of memorizing the dialogue." ~ Anonymous

National Geographic's Creepy Creatures Rated For Children

Creepy Creatures is not rated although I have seen recommendations for children aged eight and up and I read on one site that some of the material might not be suitable for the youngest children. I have also seen it recommended for all ages but not for those with arachnophobia.

Animal Atlas' Creepy Creatures

Animal Atlas' Creepy Creatures
Animal Atlas' Creepy Creatures

Animal Atlas' Creepy Creatures was released on August 31, 2010. It is an award winning children's show and includes three segments: The Scary Creatures, Skeletons and Bats in the Belfry.

Animal Safari's Creepy Critters

Animal Safari was an eight part series about wildlife. Creepy Critters is Volume 4 and shares information about bugs including their behaviour and their characteristics. In this show, children hold a tarantula and learn about the predators of the creepy critters.

Creepy Critters Rated For Children:

This film is rated G and is deemed suitable for children between the grades of kindergarten and grade 5.

Animal Planet's The World's Biggest and Baddest Bugs
Animal Planet's The World's Biggest and Baddest Bugs

Animal Planet's The World's Biggest and Baddest Bugs

Follow the host, Ruud Kleinpaste, on an hour and a half journey around the world, searching for the biggest and baddest of the creepy crawlies.

This Animal Planet program is divided into two halves. The first dedicated to large bugs and the second dedicated to deadly ones. You will meet massive cockroaches, large dragon flies and the praying mantis and you will learn more about them as you watch them going about their daily lives.

Ruud really enjoys meeting dangerous and deadly bugs and this film includes moments when he has 5,000 killer bees hanging around, when he is being stung by bullet ants and more. In total, 16 species of bugs are introduced and a lesson or activity related to each is shared.

The insect footage on The World's Biggest and Baddest Bugs is said to be amazing, although the blu-ray disc does not feature a noticeable improvement in quality. Despite that fact, if you are interested in buying this nature documentary film, you may wish to pick the blu-ray if you have the capability to watch blu-ray because it is available through Amazon for a third of the cost of the DVD.

The World's Biggest and Baddest Bugs Rated For Children

Unfortunately, this nature documentary is not rated and none of my usual resources have reviewed it. If you have seen it, be sure to share with us what you think of the rating for young children. I did find one reference, at DVDBeaver, at which the author said that he thought the target audience was young children. However, I am unable to confirm that fact. Another site, Marbeks, rated The World's Biggest and Baddest Bugs PG, stating that some scenes may scare very young children.

Do your children love creepy creatures?

      Gosh, I miss a lot now that my kids are grown. My boys weren't overly crazy about creepy creatures, but they would have enjoyed these cool videos.
