Titillating edu-tainment! Here is a merging of exciting educational segments with humorous entertainment and very nice kid’s songs that yields this award-winning video. The third in Moody/Maranatha!’s “Creation Celebration” series, “Countdown To Adventure” continues the series' formula of using an eccentric-but-lovable traveling professor, an easily flustered housekeeper, and various animal “guest stars” (in this case an elephant, a monkey, and a large seal).
Subjects touched upon include: water organisms, gravity and weightlessness (the professor is on-board the space shuttle!), and the importance of recycling to help conserve the environment. Includes beautiful nature scenes and some sensational NASA footage of fun-loving weightless astronauts.
Year of Release—1991
