The Fred Rogers Company has just announced production of a second season of PEG + CAT for PBS KIDS. Set to premiere on PBS KIDS in the Spring of 2016, the new season of the multiple Emmy Award-winning animated series for preschoolers will feature 25 engaging new episodes, including a hilarious one-hour special highlighting the musical math adventures of the intrepid Peg and her loyal sidekick, Cat. In addition, PEG + CAT will introduce fun new interactive games and digital storybooks on PBS KIDS digital platforms, using the series’ hallmark humor to showcase early math skills for young fans.
Each episode finds the spirited Peg, Cat and their friends working together to overcome a challenge using their trusty math and problem-solving abilities. Upbeat music is woven throughout the show, and every story features a catchy original song. The series provides young viewers with a fresh new way to experience the key math skills needed to navigate everyday life. And since Peg doesn’t always get it right the first time, preschoolers also learn the value of learning from mistakes.
PEG + CAT has attracted a large and growing audience across both broadcast and digital platforms, incorporating a perfect combination of “girl-power” and “brain-power.” Peg also has been widely praised as a great S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) role model for girls.
