Weird But True! is an American educational television show created by and starring Charlie Engelman and co-starring his sister Kirby Engelman (seasons 1 and 2) and Carly Ciarrocchi (season 3). Originally airing on National Geographic Kids, it became a Disney+ Original for its third season, which debuted 14 August 2020.
Inspired by the National Geographic book series of the same name, much of its style and heavy use of paper models created by the Engelmans are continued from their earlier National Geographic short video series Nature Boom Time.
Using crafting with paper products, the Engelman siblings explore "weird but true" things about a broad-range of subjects, mostly focusing on science. They visit interview experts and travel to locations such as crime labs, amusement parks, and the Everglades to find answers to their questions and discover weird but true facts, often having their experts share their favorite one. Their other sister Casey appears as a guest star.
While recommending season three on Disney+, The Washington Post describes Weird But True! as "humorous and informative tween-oriented show looks at a wide range of topics from a variety of science perspectives" and "[i]t's a great pick for tweens and grade school-age kids".
