'The Pasta Kidz(TM) and Petz Adventures' are humorous, zany, magical and chaotic stories that bring together the pasta-themed Kidz - including Sarah Spaghetti, Rikki Ravioli, Camilla Cannelloni (above) and their creative Petz - Mumbo the Macaroni Dog, Spud the Spaghetti Horse and Val the Vermicelli Snake (above) together in unusual circumstances, engaging with strange magical objects that have a life of their own. The songs, music and humour, told in specially invented pasta language, will engage 4-to-7 year olds in a fantasy world of friendship.
The plots and messages reinforce how the Kidz are unique, with different personalities and their own needs. Each tale shows how they help each other, usually with their own individual Petz, and throughout the series we see how their personalities and friendships develop especially when encountering new characters, like the evil and huge Pasta Beasties
