Sometimes, the Alphablocks/Numberblocks break the fourth wall (addressing, mentioning, or appearing to observe viewers on the "other side" of the TV screen). This article lists all known "fourth wall breaks" in the Learningblocks series.

An example of a proper fourth wall break, seen in Odd Side Story.

Alphablocks

  • Alphablocks: C cracks the screen (a literal "fourth wall"). N tries to stop the transition when the camera goes to O. O gets curious and looks at the viewers with his magnifying glass.
  • Top: When I is going to say what happened to T after O says what happened with T, E stares at the screen unhappily, because O was the first one to get the answer, not I.

Numberblocks

  • Three Little Pigs: Five says "Let me tell you a story." at the beginning of the episode. For the rest of the episode, Five tells the story about the three little pigs to the viewers.
  • Once Upon A Time: In "Four's House" after introducing himself, he addresses the viewers again and says: "Can you guess what my favourite shape is?"
  • Now We Are Six To Ten: When Seven is seen falling from the sky he says, "Fancy meeting you up here."
  • Hiccups: One sets up the camera, moving the screen in the process. Later, when Nine sneezes out his One for the first time in the episode, One hits the camera after it takes a picture.
  • Numberblock Rally: Nine looks at the camera when he says "Nice day for it!". Later, when One wins, she moves the camera to face herself much like a GoPro.
  • The Legend of Big Tum: At the end, Big Tum "eats" the screen.
  • The Wrong Number: In the 3+3 flashback, when Nine says “Three and another Three!” The Threes look around the alley, wondering where his voice came from.
  • Eleven: Seven bends down and waves at the viewers, as he is too tall for the camera.
  • Fourteen: In one scene, Fourteen breaks the camera with his skateboard.
  • Seventeen: Nearing the end, he declares that Numberland's first art gallery needs "Your art!" (including both the viewers themselves and Seventeen's fellow Numberblocks in this "you"). From there on he talks about the true purpose of art.
  • Eighteen: Constant fourth wall breaks.
    • Throughout the episode he constantly looks at the camera and back.
    • When he says he likes to go fast, he directly stares at the screen.
    • In verses such as "To build up speed!", he directly stares at the camera.
    • He tells the viewers to "watch (him) zoom with a sonic boom". Most of the time he will stare at the camera when he says it.
    • He asks the viewers if they missed him after he does 2x9. After that he stares at the camera constantly for several seconds.
    • He asks the viewers if they're's ready for the big one (1x18).
    • When he becomes 1x18, he sings the verse "I'm so fast, I'll be at the gate before you can lock it.", then proceeds to brag at the viewers that nobody can lock a gate before he comes/he'll unlock it once he gets there.
  • Twenty: 20 asks the viewers if they're "ready for the big dance number". At one point, Twenty says 'I have some more friends I'd like you (the viewers) to meet.' Then a few seconds later, the Twos welcome the viewers to the Ten Twos Hot Shoe Show.

I Can Count to Twenty: Constant fourth wall breaks.

  • "Who can count to 20? YOU can count to 20, we can count to 20, let's all count to 20!"
  • "That's when YOU know it's time to count to 20!"
  • Three stares at the camera for a bit while running and says, "Guess who's next? ME-ME-ME-ME!"
  • "Hey Number Friends, do you want to see some more? We can count to 20 in steps of 4!"
  • "Is everybody ready for a power dive? We can count to 20 in steps of 5."
  • Land of the Giants: Constant fourth wall breaks.
    • Forty talks to the viewer. "Would you like to meet my pet rectangle, Oblongy?"
    • Fifty makes everything ten times bigger (including the theme song) by turning her amplifier up to 10; she soon restores Numberland to normal by lowering the setting to 1.
    • 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 sing the theme song at the end.
  • More To Explore: The entire episode demolishes the fourth wall, addressing the viewers in song.
