Peg and Cat Save the World

PBS Distribution announced today it is releasing “PEG AND CAT SAVE THE WORLD” on DVD, the first movie from PBS KIDS’ popular PEG + CAT series, produced by The Fred Rogers Company. In this fun-filled, two-part movie, the president of the United States (voiced by actress Sandra Oh) summons Peg and Cat to the White House to solve a problem of national importance! She needs Peg and Cat to identify a mysterious object floating in space. Using their problem-solving skills, the duo discovers that a giant opera-singing pig is on a collision course with Earth. Can Peg and Cat save the planet from disaster?

Each PEG + CAT adventure features a story in which Peg and Cat encounter an unexpected challenge that requires them to use their math and problem-solving skills to find a solution. While it teaches specific math lessons, the series also emphasizes the importance of resilience and perseverance.

My Thoughts

Peg & Cat is an adorable show about a little girl and her animal companion. There is lots of action and lots of math lessons to be learned along the way as they battle a series of villains. In this movie, Peg and Cat visit the White House where they  help the president solve a big problem.  This DVD set includes two fantastic episodes that make up a full length movie.

In this movie, Peg and Cat visit the White House where they  help the president solve a big problem. This was our first experience with this show, but we're certainly be looking for new episodes now because we're hooked. It's a wonderful, educational series that is perfect for preschoolers. There was humor, adventure, and even a little history.  Both my younger children enjoyed it immensely.
