PBS Distribution announced today it is releasing four stories from PBS KIDS’ popular PEG + CAT series on the new DVD “PEG + CAT: SUPER PEG AND CAT GUY.” In this action-packed DVD, Super Peg and Cat Guy defend the bustling city of Mathtropolis from three meddlesome foes – Arch Villain, Triangulo, and Flat Woman. In order to save the day, this dynamic duo will have to use their peculiar super powers, Peg’s sphere of focus, and Cat’s ability to do nine clumsy things before scraping his knees, as well as their problem-solving skills to prevent these evil doers from creating havoc in the city. As Super Peg and Cat Guy solve the city’s problems, they learn about shapes and do lots of counting. Join these two friends as they put their minds together to fight these dastardly villains and discover that using math to save the day is TOTALLY AWESOME!
“SUPER PEG AND CAT GUY” will be available on DVD April 5, 2016. The DVD run time is approximately 50 minutes, and its SRP is $6.99. The stories included on this DVD are listed below.
