Cute Kids Narrate 'Planet Earth' Documentary Ahead Of Earth Day (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Move over, David Attenborough.

The "Planet Earth" narrator has competition -- and they haven't even graduated from second grade.

In this video, a group of 4- 7-year-olds gets a lesson in science, vocabulary and creativity, while they "audition" for the voice on BBC's documentary. And viewers get to enjoy the adorable results. Win-win.

Four-year-old Jayme, for example, is assigned to read for the desert series, but her commentary on the area's critters is slightly less than scientific.

"Lizards are hungry...I'll never eat a fly. I like cheeseburgers," she exclaims.

The hilarious segment was the brainchild of creator Joe Sabia, who prepared the spot to run in advance of an uncut "Planet Earth," scheduled to premier this weekend, in honor of Earth Day.

If you think these children have a future in voice acting, then check out this teen's spot-on impression of the "movie trailer guy."
