  • show Description
  • Martha is a dog who, upon eating alphabet soup, can speak! Based on Susan Meddaugh's children's books, this show aims to teach young children new words as Martha communicates with her best friend, ten-year-old Helen. Martha Speaks Theme Song: Martha was an average dog. She went-bark.-And-woof. And-arrr. But when she ate some alphabet soup, then what happened was bizzare. On the way to Martha's stomach, the letters lost their way. They traveled to her brain and now- She's got a lot to say. Now she speaks. How now brown cow? Martha speaks. Yeah, she speaks and speaks and speaks and speaks and speaks... What's a caboose? When are we eating again? Martha speaks... Hey Joe, what d'ya know! My name's not Joe. She's not always right but still that Martha speaks. Hi there! She's got a voice; she's ready to shout. Martha will tell you what it's all about. Sometimes wrong, but seldom in doubt. Martha will tell you what it's all about. That dog's unique... Testing, one, two! Hear her speak! Martha speaks and speaks and speaks and speaks and... Communicates, enumerates, elucidates, exaggerates, indicates, and explicates, bloviates, and overstates, and (pant, pant, pant)hyperventilates! Martha...to reiterate, Martha Speaks!moreless
