The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value

This series emphasizes basic safety skills like understanding and obeying traffic signals and remaining alert when you are out in public. The stories also involve preschool concepts like colors and simple counting, plus matters of social responsibility in being kind, showing fairness, helping others.


Positive Messages

Kids see Corn and Peg learn and demonstrate ways to stay safe and do good around their town. Showing kindness and helpfulness inspires others to do the same, creating a better, happier world for everyone. Strong themes of altruism and learning from the inevitable mistakes you make, plus solving problems. Simple tips about personal responsibility and safety -- e.g., discarding litter appropriately, staying alert to what's happening around you -- give kids solid examples to live by.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Main characters have exceedingly high respect for authority figures; they translate what those figures teach them into similar responsible behavior around town. They're resourceful and kind, and find joy in helping other people.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Corn & Peg is a preschool series about two best friends -- a unicorn and a Pegasus -- who delight in helping their friends and neighbors and otherwise improving their town by doing nice things. The content involves many teaching moments as the stories incorporate prereading skills like simple counting, color identification, following directions, and matters of basic public and personal safety. In addition, Corn and Peg often act as mentors to younger characters by modeling positive behavior like putting litter in a trash can rather than on the ground. Corn and Peg's experiences remind kids that it feels good to do good, even when you get no direct benefit from your actions.

What's the story?

In the busy town of Galloping Grove, two young friends named CORN & PEG (voiced by Jaiden Cannatelli and Shechinah Mpumlwana) are always eager to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Their motto is simple -- "Doing good feels good" -- and they never miss a chance to do some kind of good for others! Whether it's stepping in to solve a traffic jam or acting as mentors to encourage youngsters to be socially responsible, this sweet unicorn and spunky Pegasus help keep the residents of their town happy and safe.

Is it any good?

It's hard to miss this show's obvious themes, given that they practically leap off the screen in eagerness to reach their young audience. Not only do Corn and Peg sing about how much they enjoy doing good, they also fist bump (er, hoof bump?) over it; reflect on the actions of their inspirational role model, Captain Thunderhoof (Julie Sype); and otherwise celebrate the joys of helping others. Corn & Peg's constant reinforcement of themes may wear thin on parental patience, but preschoolers will eat it up, and it achieves the messages' desired effect of sticking with viewers long after the program is turned off.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how Corn and Peg demonstrate kindness to others and to their community as a whole through their actions. Who benefited from their actions in the story? What, if anything, does the experience do for Corn and Peg? How does helping someone else sometimes help ourselves?

  • Who are Corn and Peg's role models? How do the pals show that they are inspired by those they look up to? What can we learn from watching other people's behavior? Do we sometimes discover how not to be instead of how to be?

  • How do the characters' actions demonstrate compassion toward others? Do you have to know someone to be compassionate toward him or her? How does it feel to have someone help you?
