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 5: APT: 402 EPISODE 60

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN PART 1 PEEP IS LATE ARRIVING AT CHIRP’S BUSH. TURNS OUT HE TOOK A VERY LONG ROUTE TO GET THERE. (THERE’S SO MUCH TO LOOK AT!) THE BIRDS USE YARN TO MARK THE SHORTEST PATH FROM PEEP’S CAN TO CHIRP’S BUSH.

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN PART 2 A PATH MADE OF YARN HAS A WAY OF DISAPPEARING, SO PEEP, CHIRP AND QUACK MAKE A NEW PATH USING OBJECTS FROM CHIRP’S COLLECTION. IT'S A PRETTY PATH, TOO, BECAUSE IT'S MADE IN A PATTERN. BUT IS STICKING TO A PATH ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA?
