I’m eager to share with you that Super WHY rings in the New Year with four all-new literacy-powered episodes, premiering January 16-19, 2012 on PBS KIDS (check local listings)! The reading buddies travel to the Old West, visit the age of the dinosaurs, take a trip to medieval times and then jump forward to the future. The new shows are sure to get preschool viewers playing and singing along to help Super Why, Princess Presto, Wonder Red, Alpha Pig and Woofster change the story and save the day.
Super WHY and Jasper’s Cowboy Wish – January 16: Howdy Partner! Whyatt and his friends are playing cowboys, but Pig can’t join in because he doesn’t know what cowboys do. The super readers jump into the tale Jasper’s Cowboy Wish and make the acquaintance of a cowpoke named Jasper who’s desperate to become a rompin’ stompin’ cowboy if only he could get the hang of it! Will Jasper be a hero…or will this be his last roundup?
Super WHY and Baby Dino’s Big Discovery – January 17: ROAR! Pig invited his friends over to play dinosaurs, but Whyatt can’t figure out which toy dinosaur he has. So he super readers soar into Baby Dino’s Big Discovery where they lend a hand to a baby dinosaur searching for his mommy. They’ll need to look closely to figure out what kind of dinosaur Baby Dino is…and be careful to avoid being eaten while they do!
Super WHY and Princess Gwennie Saves the Day – January 18: Princess Pea is feeling dramatic (as usual) and she and Red are staging a play. Princess is pretending she’s a queen but Red doesn’t know what to be! The super readers fly into the story of a princess with a silly sense of humor and a big job to do. They help Gwennie use her talents to save the day, and Red discovers her own special gifts.
Super WHY and The Great Robot Race – January 19: Whyatt and Woofster want to win the porridge race, but the bowl of breakfast cereal keeps falling off the puppy’s back. This is a super MESSY problem! The reading friends visit The Great Robot Race and encounter a boy named Bradbury who is determined to help his robo-doggie to win a race too! Both Bradbury and the super readers will have to use a little creative problem solving to help robo-doggie zoom to the head of the pack!
