On November 26, PBS KIDS will kick off the holidays with the return of CURIOUS GEORGE: A Very Monkey Christmas. The holiday fun continues throughout December with new episodes from other PBS KIDS series. Viewers will help Otto and Olive solve a reindeer case in an all-new episode of ODD SQUAD celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah with Peg and Cat in a one-hour PEG + CAT + HOLIDAYS special. We had a chance to preview a couple of these holiday specials and my kids love the new Peg + Cat episode. Peg counts to 100 for the first time ever during this holiday episode. My son was very excited about this and ran around the house counting for the rest of the evening after watching the holiday episode. At the beginning of The Christmas Problem, they sing the Peg + Cat theme song to the tune of Jingle Bells. This episode is definitely getting us into the holiday spirit. My 18 month old walks around the house saying, “Ho Ho Ho” just like Santa does in The Christmas Problem.
The holiday specials continue with new engine friends Gator and Reg on THOMAS & FRIENDS and your little ones can enjoy a winter adventure featuring The Nutcracker Ballet with DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD. PBSKids also has a variety of fun holiday themed games and activities for kids to enjoy at the PBSKIDS website.
I received a screener copy with the Peg + Cat and ODD Squad holiday episodes for review purposes. All opinions are mine alone.
