Pinkalicious & Petterific Premieres Feb. 19th Plus Pinkalicious Party Activities @pbskids #PBSKids

On February 19, 2018, PBS KIDS will premiere PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC, a new animated series based on the best-selling Pinkalicious book series by Victoria Kann. The new show encourages kids to engage in the creative arts and self-expression, covering areas such as music, dance and visual arts – all proven to strengthen children’s cognitive and emotional skills and help them learn more effectively.

My two daughters adore the book series, and have been eagerly anticipating this new show!

PBS KIDS is giving fans a special sneak peek on pbskids.org and the PBS KIDS Video App.  {AK & AB have already watched them over and over again}

Three full-length 11-minute stories are now available; additional stories will roll out on digital platforms every Friday until February 19, when PBS stations will broadcast a special, one-hour series premiere event. The series’ on-air premiere will feature five 11-minute stories, one of which guest stars Marlo Thomas, who voices a dragon named Gertie.

PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC follows the adventures of Pinkalicious and her brother, Peter, as they explore the town of Pinkville with their neighborhood friends. The imaginative Pinkalicious finds creative opportunities everywhere she looks, with Peter and her friends Jasmine, Rafael and Kendra in tow. She inspires everyone around her to be creative and find imaginative solutions to problems, and expresses herself in ways that encourage children to do the same.

“At PBS KIDS, we seek to inspire kids through storytelling,” said Linda Simensky, Vice President, Children’s Programming, PBS. 

PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC offers us the opportunity to put the spotlight on arts and creativity in a way we’ve never done before, to highlight the importance of the arts as part of a whole-child learning approach and encourage kids to express that creativity in their daily lives.”

Produced by WGBH Boston, PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC encourages kids to engage in self-expression and the creative arts, covering areas such as music, dance, theater and visual arts. 

Each episode includes two 11-minute stories featuring Pinkalicious, Peter and their friends, and one live-action interstitial. The interstitials will feature real-life kids creating art, as well as profiles of professional artists. Renowned musicians such as blues recording artist Vaneese Thomas, dancers such as New York City Ballet principal Ramar Amasar, and author-illustrator Victoria Kann are among the artists featured.
