Pinkalicious & Peterrific Brings Creative Arts to KUED Kids

On February 19, 2018, PBS Kids will premiere Pinkalicious & Peterrific, a new animated series that encourages children to explore the arts and spark creativity. Produced by WGBH Boston and based on the best-selling HarperCollins Pinkalicious book series by Victoria Kann, Pinkalicious & Peterrific will be available nationwide on PBS Kids, the 24/7 PBS KIDS channel and PBS KIDS digital platforms, and is designed for children ages 3-5.

Pinkalicious & Peterrific follows the adventures of Pinkalicious and her brother Peter. Pinkalicious imagines creative possibilities everywhere she looks. She is an artist at heart—and, like most creative people, she sees the world differently from others. She knows what she likes, and she’s not afraid to express herself—though she sometimes needs help from her brother, Peter, and her neighborhood friends.

 

 

The series is designed to help preschool-age children explore the arts and creativity. “Research shows that participating in the arts strengthens children’s cognitive and emotional skills, and leads to higher academic performance,” said series Executive Producer Dorothea Gillim. “Kids will simply connect with the great characters Pinkalicious and Peter, and their friends Jasmine, Rafael and Lila; the entertaining and quirky stories; and the visually stunning animation.” Each episode will include two 11-minute stories as well as a live-action interstitial and an original song.

We hope you're as excited for Pinkalicious & Peterrific as we are! Find program air dates online here, and find free educational resources to go along with the program via PBS Learning Media.
