Home – About BrainPOP. BrainPOP was founded in 1999 by Dr. Avraham Kadar to creatively explain difficult concepts to his young patients. Today we are a trusted learning resource, supporting core and supplemental subjects, reaching millions of learners worldwide.
The Sites are owned by FWD Media, Inc. and its affiliates located in New York City.
Avraham Kadar, M.D., a pediatric immunologist, sees a need for digital resources to help children understand difficult subjects and develops the BrainPOP website. The offer goes beyond health topics and now includes mathematics, English and social studies.
Tim is voiced by Mike Watanabe.
According to the district, the video is marked “sensitive,” meaning it is blocked for viewing at a school but can be viewed on a student’s home network. As the Superintendent explained, BrainPOP is independent of the District and therefore the District has no control over its content.
After years of speculation, human/robot duo Tim and Moby, famous for videos loved by overly ambitious elementary school students, have publicly announced their status as a gay couple. “We weren’t sure how people would react,” Tim explained in their joint press release.
She is voiced by Karina Linch.
Tim likes her too. It appears that she is a vegetarian as seen in the FYI comic episode Thanksgiving.
As Chief Creative Officer, Watanabe designs BrainPOP’s style and animates most of its main characters – all from Honolulu, where he works remotely and where his two children (Ian ’23 and Benjamin ’26) visit Punahou .
Ben is the main character of BrainPOP ELL and one of the few people who understand Moby. Ben is maybe 13-15 old. He’s a clumsy and loud person, but he’s also proven to be very considerate and kind.
Tim was born on October 31, 1997.
He first met Tim in a giant smoking crater which could mean he came to Earth on an asteroid or comet as implied in the film Writing Process. It is also possible that he came to earth in a rocket during the early Stone Age and lived in his rocket until it exploded, forming the crater.
There is a BrainPOP Jr. section aimed at younger children with lots of discoveries from the main site characters. Instead of Tim, the main character of the series is a young girl named Annie.
BrainPOP for kids
Besides the advantages of BrainPOP, there are also some disadvantages; Student interaction is very limited, it doesn’t seem to allow for student-centered activities where children can collaborate and work with their peers in a group, and it’s not geared towards students learning in a kinaesthetic setting .
