Media and document analysis techniques were used to examine selected samples of the series. Findings indicate that the series succeed in teaching mathematical concepts, generate interest in mathematics learning and assist in development of mathematical problem-solving skills. This paper may provide information on how the series effectively used multimedia elements to deliver serious academic content in the most entertaining ways.
