Peg + Cat
- 8 Seasons
Peg + Cat is a PBS children's educational show designed for preschoolers beginning its second season in August 2014. The show features a creative little girl and her hip cat along with a cast of zany characters, including a pig enamored with triangles, a space alien, one-hundred chickens and more. Together Peg and Cat (with a little help from friend Ramone) get themselves out of sticky situations and real-life dilemmas by solving problems and mysteries using basic math and geometry skills. With a graph-paper background, Peg and her sidekick draw diagrams and charts, use various measuring techniques, and explore relationships between shapes and sizes to discover imaginative solutions to their problems. Inspired songs, ukulele playing, moments of "freaking out," and just plain silliness bring math concepts to life with a lot of fun built in. Many episodes include well-known historical and fictional characters as well, rounding out a truly entertaining educational experience for youngsters.
