Series Description

Premiered April of 2004 on The Learning Channel And Discovery Kids Channel. The animated series PEEP and the Big Wide World gives wings to the innovative idea of teaching science to preschoolers. Wry and distinctive visual humor, charming plotlines, and lovable characters combine with a comprehensive science program to attract and engage kids three to five years old. Set in and around a pond, a bush, and a tin can, the show follows a newly hatched chicken named Peep, and his friends Chirp and Quack (a robin and a duck), on their daily adventures. Each half-hour episode contains two stories which highlight specific science concepts, plus two live-action shorts presenting real kids playing and experimenting with these concepts in their own big wide worlds.

Narrated by award-winning comedienne Joan Cusack. Series release date: 4/2004

Program Description

Production Season 4 EPISODE 52

52A BRINGING SPRING: ANIMATION: IT’S FEBRUARY, WHICH MEANS IT’S AND COLD AND BLEAGH AND DREARY. BUT THINGS START TO CHEER UP WHEN THE BIRDS HELP A YOUNG GROUNDHOG FIND HER SHADOW.

INTERSTITIAL: KIDS DO SHADOW PLAY OUTSIDE WITH NATURAL LIGHT, USING FULL BODIES, ON DIFFERENT SURFACES (GROUND, WALL, BROKEN WALL).

52B QUACK’S POND PARTY ANIMATION: QUACK NEEDS SOME ATTENTION (SHOCKING!), AND DECIDES TO THROW A PARTY TO GET SOME. HE’LL BE THE ENTERTAINMENT, OF COURSE, BUT WHAT SHOULD HE SERVE TO EAT?

INTERSTITIAL: KIDS TRY EATING LIKE DIFFERENT ANIMALS, USING THEIR MOUTHS AND CHOPSTICKS AND STRAWS, LEARNING THAT THE TOOLS THAT YOU HAVE (MANMADE OR NATURE-GIVEN) DETERMINE WHAT YOU CAN EAT.
