The holidays are here and festivities continue with some of your child’s favorite characters. Three new heartfelt winter-themed episodes of Molly of Denali are coming to PBS KIDS Dec. 7 through Dec. 9 will help make the season brighter for kids and families from coast-to-coast.
In the debut episodes, Molly, her friends and family in Alaska figure out how to help Aunt Midge get around in the snow, mend an ugly hand-me-down Christmas sweater, celebrate a birthday during the winter solstice, search for a lost mitten and more.
The award-winning animated series, produced by WGBH Boston, follows the adventures of curious and resourceful 10-year-old Molly Mabray, an Alaska Native girl who lives in the fictional village of Qyah, Alaska.
Molly helps her Mom and Dad run the Denali Trading Post – a general store, bunkhouse, and transport hub – where she assists tourists, trekkers and scientists, and sometimes rides along in Mom’s bush plane or makes deliveries via dog sled. Molly of Denali is the first nationally-distributed children’s series to feature a Native American and Alaska Native lead character.
In addition to the new Molly of Denali seasonal stories, a new Pinkalicious & Peterrific Christmas special, “Gingerbread House / Christmas Tree Trouble” premieres on PBS KIDS Dec. 7.
PBS KIDS is bringing even more holiday cheer to families nationwide. From Dec. 4 through Dec. 27 seasonal specials from fan-favorite PBS KIDS series are returning, including:
