Hi-5 is an Australian television show for children that started in 1999. The members of Hi-5 are Nathan, Kellie, Charli, Tim and Kathleen. Hi-5 can also be known as a pop music group for young children. They sing songs, dance and act. Hi-5 have recently released an album called Boom Boom beat! The album has 20 tracks. Hi-5 is very popular with children but also with many other age groups, such as The Wiggles and The Hooley Dooleys
Overall, the show has been designed to have a very bright and happy feel to it. The show is aired once a week on Australian television. All the members of Hi-5 had been involved in television before the show had started. They had done commercials and small roles in other television shows. But Hi-5 has definitely been their most successful venture. They have won two Logie Awards (Awards that are voted by the Australian public) for Most Outstanding Children’s Program.
Some of Hi-5’s songs:
- "Rain Rain"
- "Three Wishes"
- "Robot One"
- "Hi-5 theme song"
