Martha Speaks

Posted on

(PBS) Meet Martha, the animated TV series about a friendly talking dog: When she eats alphabet soup, the letters go to her brain instead of her stomach and she speaks! Martha lives with Helen, her family, and their other dog, Skits. In each episode, Martha and her friends use her speaking ability to promote positive messages and behavior while boosting the vocabulary of the show’s enchanted young viewers. There are various comedic moments when Martha forgets, and speaks in front of a human who hasn’t met a talking dog before.
