 Venice California - Simon Says “Let’s Stop Climate Change!” features the same beloved characters from Hippo Works’ syndicated eco-cartoonlet It’s A Jungle Out There! by Denis Thomopoulos. In this half-hour feature, the jungle group goes on an ‘edutaining’ adventure that teaches kids about global warming, the food chain, carbon footprints as well as eco habits
such as “the Three Rs” (reducing, reusing and recycling).

DVDDistributed by Library Video Company, the film is also available on hippoworks.com which will soon feature a new myHippoWorks club: a place where kids, families, and classes can share their progress in fighting climate change. For every Green Dollar kids earn through playing games, a real square foot of wetlands is purchased to help offset their carbon footprints through Global Green.

Advance Praise for Simon Says “Let’s Stop Climate Change!”

 "The global warming issues that the film communicates are scientifically sound.
Plus the film will be great fun for students!"
- Stephen H. Schneider, Ph.D. Stanford University, recipient of the 2007
collective Nobel Peace Prize

 "This film connects kids to their planet with an understanding of how climate
change affects them and what they can do to help stop it - all with characters
my family just loves!"
- Davis Guggenheim, Director of An Inconvenient Truth
