It all starts with a great idea!
Our homegrown animated series Eureka!, created by Niamh Sharkey and Norton Virgien, tells the story of Eureka, a talented young inventor living in the fantastical prehistoric world of Rocky Falls. Each episode follows Eureka as she “thinkers” her way out of problems by creating some fantastic inventions and contraptions, all in the hopes of making the world a better place and moving her prehistoric community into a more modern era.
With the help of her supportive parents, teacher, best friends—Pepper and Barry—and beloved pet mammoth Murphy, Eureka is learning to embrace that she is not ordinary… she's extraordinary.
Along with inspiring kids to create with confidence, Eureka! also aims to get more kids interested in science and engineering. With Eureka and her friends, challenges turn into big ideas, amazing inventions and the most fascinating and hilarious adventures!
Following on from the recent launch of brand new Eureka! episodes on Disney Junior, we're delighted to share four awesome episodes available in full on Disney Junior's YouTube channel to help highlight the joy of imagineering with Eureka!
