Peg + Cat: Fantastic New PBS Show

FamilyFun’s Research Chief, Beth Honeyman, is our guest blogger today.

Premiering on PBS Kids on October 7, Peg + Cat (tap link for video) features a pair of winsome title characters: spunky, enthusiastic Peg and her purple feline pal. Together the two tackle problems both big (how to re-coop 100 escaped chicks) and small (finding a friend to join their pie picnic), all as the show deftly incorporates mathematical concepts in entertaining ways. My kids, ages 3 and 5, and I caught a sneak peek of one episode, and we adored the show’s whimsy: the talking cat, the catchy tunes, and Peg’s oversized reactions (“I am TOTALLY freaking out!). As a mom, I especially appreciated how Peg + Cat encourages young viewers to persevere and figure out their own solutions.

Check your local TV listings for air time.
