For this pilot episode, Norm starts off by covering the definition of matter, and then atoms.

Tidbits with Norm & Cory is an edutainment series featuring the 2 furry critters from last year's animated short, Norm & Cory! Aimed at middle-school students in science class, or just any curious child thirsty for knowledge, Norm guides them through an intro course comprised of 1-minute episodes with his pupil Cory! The Patreon campaign won't just be for Tidbits either. From time to time I'll also add still drawings, comic pages, and other videos.

A new episode will be added at least once a month on the children's video site, BatteryPOP! Uploads on YouTube for the same episode will follow.

I think I'm going to like this series

Pros: Educational, yet holds interest fairly well. Like the clash of character (smart one, hyperactive not-so-smart one). Presented perfectly well for your target audience.

Cons: Norm's voice sounds a little bit hallow or echoing. A bit short, but I suppose it'd work for kids with short attention spans.

Other: All in all, pretty good. This is something I could see being presented in a class to cover points here and there had it been longer and covered more topic in one go. As it is, it does it's job well as an internet series for touching up a kid's education.

I think you should verify your facts with a professor on the subject.

I recommend!

Excellent. Happy to see animated movies with purposeful content.
I am not an expert on the things relating audio-tracks and such, but is the monotonical background music suited for maintaining the attenchen of the younger audience?
Also, you could try to improve upon the amount of factual details. For example: yes, 'atoms' are etymologically speaking 'uncuttable', yet they can be split, and when showing electrons orbiting a nucleus, the number of electrons and protons should be shown as equal.
So, keep up the good work, hope to see more of your work.

good job but i don't like learning
