As you know, we are HUGE PBS Kids fans at The Mama Maven Blog and I’ve served as one of their VIP Parent Bloggers since 2012. On November 25th, PBS is premiering the first hour-long WILD KRATTS holiday special, “A Creature Christmas” and afterwards, NATURE CAT premieres.
In this seasonal adventure, the Kratts take a break from their fearless questing for creatures to celebrate Christmas. But when they receive an alert that their favorite critters are disappearing around the globe, their holiday celebration quickly turns into a rescue mission.
If you remember, I got a sneak peek at NATURE CAT, PBS Kids’ new action-adventure series at the PBS Annual Meeting in May. Read that post here — https://www.themamamaven.com/2015/05/17/meow-nature-cat-is-coming-to-pbs-kids-november-2015. The show stars an ordinary housecat named Fred who becomes his alter-ego, “Nature Cat,” – backyard nature explorer – when his family leaves for the day. Kids will enjoy the fun series and parents will appreciate the retro graphics and the voice cast, which includes Saturday Night Live stars Taran Killam (Nature Cat), Kate McKinnon (Squeeks), Bobby Moynihan (Hal) and Kenan Thompson (Ronald) and Kate Micucci (Scrubs, The Big Bang Theory, Garfunkel and Oates).
We got a chance to check out both of the shows recently and a fun prize pack.
Now my kids won’t stop asking to watch more Nature Cat (Wild Kratts is already big in our house). It’s a funny show and also teaches about nature. It has the retro look of a late 70’s cartoon and parents will really appreciate the SNL cast members in the show.
This series is created by brothers David Rudman (“Cookie Monster” and “Baby Bear” on SESAME STREET; “Scooter” and “Janice” on The Muppets) and Adam Rudman (Tom & Jerry, SESAME STREET, CYBERCHASE), NATURE CAT is a co-production of Spiffy Pictures and WTTW Chicago.
Tune into PBS Kids, starting November 25 to check out both shows.
