Bitz the problem solving girl, and her younger brother, Bob, loves to make stuff, imagine extraordinary adventures and engineering. They explore and learn their love of STEAM, (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) to invent their ways to save the day.


Bitz (voiced by Dolly Heavey) is an older girl who solves problems, builds, and fixes. She has a younger brother, Bob. Her catchphrase is: “Time for a Bitz brain blitz!”

Bob (voiced by Duke Davis) is Bitz's younger brother. He is dressed as a robot/dinosaur made out of cardboard. He helps out Bitz to solve problems. His catchphrase is: “Bitz blitzed it!” and “Awesome!”

Purl (voiced by Maria Darling) is a soft ragdoll (she wears rollerskates on some episode) and Bitz's bestie. She is a perfectionist, and loves adding a touch of glitter on every project. Her catchphrase is “Oh my shiny sequins!”

Bevel (voiced by Rob Delaney) is a cool monster-like action figure and power tool. and is Bob's favorite toy. He is an ultimate action guy with a sensitive side, but not truly clever or brave. His catchphrase is “BOO-YAH!” which he says in every occasion.

Zip and Pop (voiced by Marc Silk - Zip & Maria Darling - Pop) are two slapstick-loving, practical joking brother and sister zip up cloth dolls. They can carry tools and mechanical stuff. In a clumsy, curious and comical double act, they find pretty much everything hilarious. Impulsive and impetuous, they do not like being alone, sitting still or being unzipped.


BBC and FremantleMedia produced the series along with Jellyfish Pictures.

After Boat Rocker Media acquired FremantleMedia’s Kids and Family Division, they started producing it.


The series aired on TVOKids and Knowledge Kids in Canada, EBS in South Korea, SVT in Sweden, NRK in Norway, YLE in Finland, Hop! Channel in Israel, KiKa in Germany, Nat Geo Kids in Latin America and Brazil, GOOD TV in Taiwan, and RCTI in Indonesia.
