PBS Distribution announced it is releasing seven stories from PBS KIDS’ popular PEG + CAT series on the new DVD “PEG + CAT: PEG ROCKS,” available starting March 3.
Solving problems is even more AWESOME when music is involved! This new toe-tapping DVD features fun-filled musical escapades, including “The Girl Group Problem,” in which Peg’s girl group, the Pentagirls, has its biggest show ever, and “The Mega Mall Problem,” which features Peg and Cat searching the mall for the teens, so they can all enter the Zebra Guy dance contest!
Each PEG + CAT adventure features a story in which Peg and Cat encounter an unexpected challenge that requires them to use math and problem-solving skills in order to save the day. While it teaches specific math lessons, the series also emphasizes resilience and perseverance.
PEG + CAT was created by Billy Aronson (“Rent,” “Postcards from Buster”) and Jennifer Oxley (“Little Bill,” “The Wonder Pets!”) and is a production of The Fred Rogers Company. PEG + CAT, which made its broadcast debut in October 2013, airs daily on PBS KIDS (check local listings).
The “PEG + CAT: PEG ROCKS” DVD (SRP $12.99) has a run time of approximately 85 minutes. In addition to featuring seven rockin’ stories, the DVD includes printable activities – pirates + peaches board game, four fantastic flip-books, Cat sock-beanie instructions, and PEG + CAT stick puppets.
