A new animated children’s show will debut October 7 at 10 a.m. on NET!
Peg + Cat is new animated preschool series that follows the adorable, spirited Peg and her sidekick Cat as they embark on adventures and learn foundational math concepts and skills. Co-creators Billy Aronson (Rent, Postcards from Buster) and Jennifer Oxley (Little Bill, The Wonder Pets!) have teamed with The Fred Rogers Company to bring young viewers a new way to experience math through Peg and Cat’s relatable, and often hilarious, adventures.
Every half-hour episode of Peg + Cat will feature two stories, each an eleven-minute adventure in which Peg and Cat find themselves thrust into an unexpected math word problem. Peg and Cat’s adventures take them through worlds of infinite possibilities — from farms to purple planets, from 16th-century Verona to New York’s Radio City Music Hall, from a land of pirates to a prehistoric valley — demonstrating that math is everywhere.
The show will air on NET-1 and NET-HD Monday – Friday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. The show will also air Sunday on NET-1 and NET-HD at 8 a.m.
PBS Kid has a new website for the show available here. The site contains games, video and information for parents & teachers about the show!
