Storyline

The Fred Rogers Company introduces a new animated preschool series featuring Peg and her sidekick, Cat, as they encounter unexpected challenges that require arithmetic and problem-solving skills. Each episode features two stories in which Peg and Cat face a math word problem that they must solve. Children will learn how to build calculation skills and think about larger concepts that will help them form the foundation for learning math at any level, from kindergarten through calculus.

Innocent at First, but the Haters Deserve a Voice
4 January 2020 | by SpencerPEvansSee all my reviews

If you're reading the review, you're probably wondering why I'm choosing to bash at a kids show about mathematics, but I hope that if you read this, it will make sense.

I have a younger brother, who - at the time this review was typed out - is six years old, and even HE doesn't like this show, and I've observed as to why. Ever notice that the characters always talk too fast to get the information grabbed at? There is never a breath of air between the dialogue. A similar issue to one I had growing up to Dinosaur Train. The characters spoke too fast, so I could never get invested in the lessons. They just whizzed by my comprehension.

Another thing to point out, the characters themselves. There's a difference between "simplifying" and "dumbing it down". Simplifying would be just explaining the basics of the concept, but dumbing something down is believing the audience doesn't understand because they're dumb. This show does that with its characters. When it showed Einstein as an imbecile (not even for growing purposes), I wanted to scream, and all the characters feel like cardboard cutouts that aren't relatable. Plus, Peg would overreact at even the smallest of situations, not even something that little kids would relate to.

One of the biggest annoyances that I'm sad to see in almost everything that's supposedly for children is hypnotic movement. Ever notice that all the characters speak and move non-stop and almost at the same speed? It's the equivalent of watching a watch waving back and forth or when you almost pass out from looking at the scenery zoom by when you're riding in a car. Both of those numb the mind enough so that you don't think about the show, but not so much to make you bored. This happens ALL around the show.

I know this is supposed to be for little kids to get engaged in math, but I don't feel like that was the intent. Even if it was, this show is a horrible way to engage kids to do that, because they don't even get engaged because of how bland, blank and hypnotic this show is.

I understand this is for kids, and you may call be a hater all you want, but kids deserve better than this show and this show deserves to be taken down.
