Episode Select


  • This is undeniably the most obscure Learningblocks season/series, probably due to it being the oldest.
    • Also, it could possibly be due to it getting overshadowed by the other three series, especially with Series 2 and 3 reteaching most of the topics Series 1 taught.
    • Another reasoning could possibly be because this series' episodes are incredibly short, being 3 minutes long, as opposed to all the other non-special Alphablocks episodes being 5 minutes long. Because these episodes are incredibly way too short to air individually, they would always air on Cbeebies in pairs (totalling to 6 minutes) until Series 2 aired. As of now, no episode from this series has ever aired on TV for several years.
  • As of now, only 19 of the 26 episodes of this season are available to watch in BBC iPlayer.
    • The other 7 episodes that are missing, are Bee, Key, Cha Cha Cha, Alphalympics, UFO, Quiet, and Zzzzz. It is unknown why these episodes aren't present.
    • The only way to watch these remaining episodes is to find them on YouTube and watch them there, though some of them are pretty bad in quality compared to the episodes on BBC iPlayer due to the fact that uploads of the episodes were up on YouTube since 2013.
