Watch Peg + Cat weekdays on WV PBS at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. ; also on weekends at 8 a.m.

PBS KIDS’ newest animated preschool series Peg + Cat is coming to WV PBS. The multimedia property follows the adorable, spirited Peg and her sidekick, Cat, as they embark on adventures, solve problems and learn foundational math concepts and skills. Peg + Cat (pronounced Peg plus Cat) premieres Monday, Oct. 7 at 9 a.m. on WV PBS with a special one-hour broadcast of two back-to-back episodes, along with integrated online and mobile content. The series airs daily following the premiere.

Peg + Cat is a production of The Fred Rogers Company. Each episode features two 11-minute stories 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. Their adventures take viewers from a farm to a distant planet, from a pirate island to a prehistoric valley, from Romeo and Juliet's Verona to Cleopatra's Egypt to New York's Radio City Music Hall. While teaching specific math lessons, the series displays the value of resilience and perseverance in problem-solving.

Peg + Cat is a multi-platform media experience  for 3-5 year olds that includes interactive mobile and online content. The property offers games and other resources online at pbskids.org/peg.

The program’s curriculum is grounded in principles and standards for school mathematics as established by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics for kindergarten and first grade. This curriculum comes to life through music, lovable characters, hilarious escapades, and imaginative problems that engage children and stimulate their learning. Responding to several critical needs, Peg + Catwill help children begin exploring math and get them interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) as early as possible. The program will also help dispel the myth that success in math requires a special “math gene.”
