    Weekdays at 8.20am from March 17

    Set in outback Australia, The Numtums is an adventure comedy in which number-bellied Numbats use basic numeracy skills to solve a whole host of humorous conundrums – all fuelled by one too many Termite Treats! The Numtums are based on the Australian Numbats – a rare marsupial native to Western Australia. Each animated creature is a different colour, shape and size but they all have stripy long tails, sticky up ears and numbers on their tummies.

    The new series targets upper pre-schoolers by introducing story driven episodes, fast paced comedy and visual humour, and distinct personalities for the Numtum characters. Each episode sees the number-obsessed heroes use their maths and number skills to resolve problems in their quirky hometown of Gumnut Gorge.
