Rosie's Rules is an animated children's television series that premiered on PBS KIDS in January 2022. The show centers around Rosie, an imaginative young mouse who lives in a mouse village within the walls of a house. Each 11-minute episode follows Rosie as she encounters various problems or mysteries that need solving. Using her intelligence and creativity, Rosie comes up with "Rosie's Rules" to help guide her through challenges. These rules employ logical thinking and experimentation to find solutions.

The show takes place in a colorful, stylized world inhabited by anthropomorphic mice. Rosie has light brown fur and wears a pink bow and dress. She lives with her parents and her little brother Russell. Other mouse villagers include Rosie's best friends Marie and Leo, the eccentric Professor Quigley, and Rosie's neighbor Mr. Squeakers. The mice are able to talk and walk upright like humans. Their village is hidden behind the walls and under the floorboards of a large Victorian-style house occupied by humans, who remain oblivious to the mice.

In each episode, Rosie encounters an issue that needs solving, whether it's figuring out how to return a lost baby turtle to its pond, finding the squeak in Mr. Squeakers' floor, or getting help for her neighbor whose tail is stuck in a mousetrap. Rosie taps into her critical thinking skills and comes up with fun "Rosie's Rules" to structure her approach to the problem. For example, to find the lost turtle, Rosie uses rules like "Rule #1: Be Observant!" to look for clues and "Rule #2: Retrace Your Steps" to recreate the turtle's path. The rules provide a framework to break down complex problems into manageable steps.

Rosie's Rules emphasizes logical reasoning, creativity, initiative and compassion. By modeling Rosie's thought process, the show teaches young viewers strategies for everyday problem-solving and working through interpersonal conflicts. Each episode wraps up with Rosie recapping the rules that helped her solve the challenge. The repetitive structure helps reinforce the educational content.

While grounded in logic, the show retains a sense of silliness and fun. Rosie has a big imagination and there are often fantastical elements and humor woven into the storylines. The writers include jokes and physical comedy to keep preschool audiences engaged. The show's themes of friendship, community and perseverance are brought to life through the appealing world of mouse villagers interacting in the walls of a house.

With its blend of logical rules, imagination and pro-social themes, Rosie's Rules aims to nurture children's problem-solving abilities, critical thinking skills and empathy. The show represents PBS KIDS' commitment to promoting educational content and developmentally enriching entertainment for young viewers. Since its premiere, Rosie's Rules has become a favorite among preschoolers for its relatable stories, likable characters and gently humorous approach to teaching real-world problem solving.

Rosie's Rules is a series that is currently running and has 9 seasons (87 episodes). The series first aired on October 3, 2022.
