Martha lives with Helen, her family, and their other dog, Skits. In each episode, Martha and her friends use her speaking ability to promote positive messages and behavior while boosting the vocabulary of the show's enchanted young viewers. There are various comedic moments when Martha forgets, and speaks in front of a human who hasn't met a talking dog before.
