Kratts' Creatures is a 1996 educational children's series on PBS hosted by Chris and Martin Kratt. In this show, the Kratt brothers travel around the world and teach children about the world of animals, with help from a fifteen-year-old girl named Allison (Shannon Duff) and an animated anthropomorphic animal named Ttark. It was followed by an unofficial spin-off for preschoolers called Zoboomafoo in 1999, and an animated series called Wild Kratts in 2011.

Between 2009-2010, a fan ripped the first 33 episodes from the PBS Kids GO! website when the show used to be on the site for broadband video streaming. However, months after he uploaded them on YouTube in August of 2010, he decided to delete his uploads and hand them over to a YouTube user named TheAccount2econd, who eventually uploaded them. Another fan who goes by the name of RicoKratt uploaded the next three episodes. Unfortunately, the next 14 episodes are nowhere to be found on the internet.

In October 2015, after this article was written, TheAccount2econd unexpectedly removed all the 33 Kratts' Creatures episodes from her channel, rendering most of the videos previously marked as found; lost again. However, some of the episodes can be found in torrents such as Thepiratebay and tpbclean and were also re-uploaded to YouTube and other streaming sites.

On May 25th, 2017, the first 33 episodes of the show were uploaded to the Internet Archive by user Nathaniel43284. The videos do not work on the Internet Archive itself but will function once downloaded as mp4 files.

At some point, all of the episodes became available for purchase on Amazon's website.

On December 9th, 2020, Archive.org user Kera Teevee uploaded the full series to Archive.org, only missing 2 episodes: "Heavyweights of Africa!" and "Wild Ponies!". The episodes were found from scene releases on Usenet.
