Watch as adorable kids have a go at narrating Planet Earth for BBC America. The nature documentary, with original commentary by Sir David Attenborough (and Sigourney Weaver in North America), shows the behaviours of animals in their natural habitats.

The cute factor is turned up as little kids put on their professional voices to read the script, make up their own narration and sound effects, or struggle with technical equipment. Our favourite moment? Four-and-a-half-year-old Jayme’s account of a lizard: “Ew, what is he eating? I’ll never eat a fly. I like cheeseburgers.” Hilarious!
