Team Umizoomi is an American television series for children. The series was broadcast on Nickelodeon in the United States from January 25, 2010 until April 24, 2015. It tells about the adventures of the 3 main characters; Milli, Geo, and Bot. It uses a lot of mathematical ideas, such as counting, sequences, shapes, patterns, measurements, and equalities.

Characters[change | change source]

  • Milli is a really smart and imaginative 6 year old girl, whose voice is provided by Sophia Fox in the early Season 1 and Madeleine Rose Yen in Seasons 1 and 4. Milli is usually the one to interact with the child viewing the show. Her ponytails can be used to measure things. This is started by singing "Milli-Measure". She can also sing a make her dress into any pattern by saying, "Pattern of,-insert pattern here!" and can apply the pattern on her dress to any object by singing "Pattern Power!" She's a friend of Bot and sister of Geo.
  • Geo is Milli's little brother, voiced by Ethan Kempner in Seasons 1-3 and Josiah Sanchez in Season 5. He is 5 and zooms everywhere on his Super Skates. Geo wears a shape belt containing many different kinds of shapes and can create anything. Often, when Team Umizoomi is stuck and needs some type of vehicle to assist them, Geo will figure out what they need, and present a blueprint for the thing that needs to be built, and then interact with the child viewing the show to figure out which building supplies are needed to fill in the shape belt by singing Super Shapes!
  • Bot is a robot friend whose voice is provided by Donovan Patton who loves to sing and dance and has a fun-loving, childlike personality. His abilities are more functional than math-related. His arms and legs can be extended to reach things, by saying "Arms Extendo" or "Legs Extendo". He has a small receiver (like a satellite dish) on his head to receive calls (called the Umi Alarm). He also has a screen on his front (called a "Belly Belly Belly Screen") that they can see videos/pictures on as well as have a video call with someone who needs their help. He also has a storage compartment on the back of his body, called a Bot-o-mat, which frequently is carrying whatever the team happens to need. In each episode, he is introduced, usually by Milli, as their Best Robot Friend.
  • UmiCar is the team's orange car that can speak by only his name, provided by P.T. Walkey, who drives the team wherever their help is needed. He also beeps. UmiCar has been shown as not being a character in many early season 1 episodes, but since he gained a face, becomes a character rather than an object.
