PB and J Rocks!

Great Show. Back when Playhoue Disney was in the good ol' days.

What's the story?

In PB&J OTTER, the three Otter kids live on a houseboat with their parents on the shore of Lake Hoohaw, a town filled with other animal families -- where they always manage to find a predicament to solve. When Peanut (voiced by Adam Rose), Jelly (Brook Jenell Slack), and Baby Butter (Gina Marie Tortorici) get into a pickle, they perform \"The Noodle Dance\" until they figure out an answer. Their solutions are inventive enough, and their brainpower always saves the day.

Is it any good?

The show's formula is basic and predictable, but the emphasis isn't so much on the fact that the kids always solve the problem as much as it is on how they solve the problem. The lively characters and the vivid color palette make this a harmless, entertaining show that most parents won't mind their kids watching occasionally.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the situations the characters get themselves into. Do kids relate, or do the predicaments seem outrageous and hilarious? What about this show appeals to young kids?
