The animated preschool series PEG + CAT follows the spirited Peg and her sidekick, Cat, as they embark on adventures, solve problems, and learn foundational math concepts and skills. In each episode, Peg, Cat and their friends work together to overcome a challenge using their trusty math and problem-solving abilities. The series provides young viewers with a fresh new way to experience the key math skills needed to navigate everyday life. And since Peg doesn’t always get it right the first time, preschoolers also learn the value of learning from mistakes.
Since it premiered in 2013, PEG + CAThas attracted a large and growing audience across both broadcast and digital platforms, incorporating a perfect combination of “girl-power” and “brain-power.” Peg, the show’s star, was recently recognized by Common Sense Media as one of TV’s Best Role Models of 2014. Peg also has been widely praised as a great S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) role model for girls.
