The basic plot of the series is usually to save the animals from various situations, be it villains, general human influence, or confusion on a baby animal's part. Most episodes focus on villains, but those that do not usually focus on soe real world problem, either directly (as seen in "Stuck On Sharks" where Gourmand captured a shark for making shark fin soup) or indirectly through allegory ("Build It Beaver" had the beaver's dam destroyed repeatedly through various means; an allegory for deforestation). Still some episodes aim to change the way a seen- creatures that are usually considered frightening, such as bats and crocodiles.
Along the way, viewers learn about the animals and their lives as the Kratt brothers and the Wild Kratts gang (consisting of the Kratts themselves, Aviva, Koki, and Jimmy) figure out the ways to either right wrongs or to get out of the strange (and always amusing) situations they are in. It was stated in an interview that the villains do not learn about the animals and this is why they are always unsucessful.
Some of their adventures have put them in grave danger or even brought them seconds away from death. In these episodes, it can be just the nature of the mission, or it can be the cause of a villain. Although in only one case ("Platypus Cafe") did the villain (Gaston Gourmand) actually intend to cause harm to one of the brothers. In other episodes, the villain had not thought it through (Zach in "Mystery of the Weird Looking Walrus"), or was not aware of the medical risks involved. They also occasionally enlist the help of the Wild Kratts Kids, children who help the Wild Kratts from their home however they can, whether it is moving animals or helping rebuild habitats.
