With the Olympics winding down, it would seem everyone has Olympic fever. Team Umizoomi and Dora the Explorer have caught it too, and will be airing special sports-themed episodes on Monday, August 13th.

The evening will begin with "Dora's Fantastic Gymnastics Adventure" at 7pm ET/PT, who is competing in a ribbon dancing competition, until Swiper the Fox swipes her new special rainbow ribbon! Will she get it back in time to perform?

Then at 7:30 ET/PT, Team Umizoomi steps up to the plate at the Umi Games. It's the biggest sporting event in Umi City and they must compete against special sports robots to win the Umi Games Trophy. They show us how math is at work in four different sports: Soccer, Basketball, Swimming, and Cycling. Will Milli, Geo, and Bot win the trophy?

I've gotten to see the Team Umizoomi episode, and it's a lot of fun! My favorite is the soccer match!

As part of this special event, I got the chance to chat with none other than Bot himself, Donovan Patton! I had so much fun talking with him about working with Team Umizoomi, his time on Blue's Clues, and more.
