Marvi Hämmer is an award winning kids TV show of a teenage 3D animated rat, that presents a weekly bilingual TV science magazine for children.
Eager for knowledge Marvi takes control of a TV studio every night and introduces exciting and spectacular films from the National Geographic World showing among others giant hornets, bears and tornadoes, as well as the depths of the ocean.

and German subsidiary, 4K Animation.
The World Reporters, as animated in the show, are three 2D cartoon characters who experience various adventures all over the world on Marvi's behalf.
They only speak English as this is their common language. This was so that children are guided to their first foreign language in a playful way - also referred to as immersive learning.
