'Peg + Cat: Peg Rocks'
(DVD / NR / 2015 / PBS)
Overview: Follow the adorable, spirited Peg and her sidekick Cat as they embark on adventures, solve problems together, and learn foundational math concepts and skills.
DVD Verdict: Peg + Cat is an absolutely wonderful show! It features a girl who is not obsessed with princesses and loves solving math-based problems. And it's not just for girls, trust me! I have an almost 5 year-old son who loves it more than any other show.
Indeed, every single one of his friends, male and female, also love it as it is interesting, insightful, and addresses common childhood issues with a spirit of fun and inquisitiveness.
The episodes contained on this brand new 'Peg + Cat: Peg Rocks' DVD are: 1. The Big Gig Problem; 2. The Mega Mall Problem; 3. I Do What I Can: The Musical!; 4. The Girl Group Problem; 5. The Groovy Sixties Problem; 6. The Magic Uke; and 7. The Rocking Out Problem.
Yep, it seems that solving problems is even more AWESOME when they involve music! The fun begins when Peg and Cat need to round up the missing members of their touring band, the Electric Eleven, in time for their big gig performing for 100 chickens. Then Peg and Cat have to search the enormous Mega Mall for the teens so they can all join the Zebra Guy dance contest.
Finally, Peg and Cat hit some wrong notes when they get stuck in a spectacular instrument that Baby Fox builds out of junk. How will they be able to escape? I would like to thank PBS for another amazing production and I hope that this Winner of 3 Emmy Awards in 2014 continues to bring us further episodes of these high quality, educational shows. Well done PBS. Thank you! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
