WEIRD & WACKY PLANET
Weird & Wacky
Here at Weird & Wacky Planet, we're all about discovering new ways to explore our own environment, conserve our natural resources, and satisfy our curiosity about this big, blue, beautiful world we call home.
And we like to have fun doing it! There’s no reason it can’t be exciting as well as educational.
K.B. likes to think of it like Carrot Cake. Yes, there are vegetables in it, but it’s cake! So you're still gonna eat it. And lick the cream cheese frosting off the plate.
Well… maybe that’s just her.
Author and Accidental Adventuress
K.B. Carr is an animal enthusiast, not an animal expert. They both start with the letter "e", but shouldn't be confused. One of them requires much larger student loans.
Her mother wanted to know why she asked so many questions all the time. "Curiosity killed the cat", her mother would say. "But, satisfaction brought her back", K.B. would reply.
She is the mother of two children, Ryan and Kelsey, and she tries really hard to answer all their questions if she can.
K.B. lives in West Michigan with her dog Jack. Jack is a girl dog with a boy's name. K.B. says that Ryan, Kelsey, and Jack are - and always will be - her favorite Weird & Wacky Creatures.
Captain Jack Sparrow Carr
Jack is a girl dog with a boy’s name. She got her name when she was brought to K.B. as a stray. She had thick dreadlock tangles from living on the streets for so long, and K.B. thought she looked like a pirate.
She likes to tell jokes, answer questions, and give her opinion about anything and everything. Her hobbies are eating, sleeping, and smelling stuff.
She has a different good morning treat, an after-licking-the-bacon-plate treat, and an I-just-went-outside-even-though-I-did-nothing-but-smell-stuff treat. And she knows which one she should be getting for what. If you get it wrong, she will eat whatever one you give her, then wait patiently by the pantry looking at you until you realize your mistake and correct it.
Dr. Chuck Darwin
Chuck is a Chimpanzee or Pan troglodytes, who has a bigger brain than most people. He’s a Brit who comes to us from England, and words, especially really BIG words, are his jam.
He is a scientist who specializes in Biology and can rattle off those big words in a sentence, impressing the most discerning intellectual. K.B. relies on him to increase her vocabulary.
His hobbies are reading and research, and he prefers Earl Grey when taking tea.
Tito is a red-eyed treefrog, an amphibian whose scientific name is Agalychnis callidryas. Most tree frogs are native to tropical rainforests from Mexico, Central America, and Columbia.
Tito's family immigrated to New York where he was raised, so you might recognize his accent.
He’s really into animal facts and he’s very excited when he comes across an animal fact he doesn’t know. And that doesn’t happen often!
His hobbies are Googling things, researching podcast ideas, and teasing Captain Jack. He does all of that extremely well.
