Peep and the Big Wide World returns on PBS
Submitted By Mike Wood
Premiering Monday, January 3, "Peep and the Big Wide World" is back for a new season of adventures with 25 never before seen episodes on public television. Narrated by Joan Cusack, this Emmy-award winning preschool science and math series tracks the adventures of Peep, a newly hatched chick; Chirp, a smart and sassy robin; and Quack, an irascible and endearing duck.
In the season premiere, "Quack Quack" and "One Duck too Many," Megan Mullally, best known for her work on the NBC hit series "Will and Grace," lends her voice as an obnoxious duck who takes all she can from Quack, including his lunch, his pond, and even his name! Exiled from his home and forced to crash with Beaver Boy, Quack enlists the help of Peep and Chirp in a quest to get his life back. Also this season, Oscar winner Holly Hunter guest stars as a real, live, capital "R" Robin. She can sing, build nests, take baths, and even fly! Should Chirp go south with Robin, or stay and face another dreary winter?
