PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC, based on the best-selling Pinkalicious book series by author Victoria Kann is coming to PBS Kids and will have its broadcast premiere on February 19th. If you just can’t wait you can check out the first three episodes on pbskids.org and the PBS Kids Video App. The animation really looks like you are watching an animated version of the book and is done quite well. We love the message that the show brings and look forward to the episodes.
Follow the adventures of Pinkalicious and her brother Peter in PBS KIDS’ newest animated series, PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC. 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 is not afraid to express herself—though she sometimes needs help from her brother, Peter, and her neighborhood friends. Designed for children ages 3-5, PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC encourages kids to engage in the creative arts and self-expression, covering areas such as music, dance and visual arts.
