What's the story?

In PINKFONG WONDERSTAR, an interstellar visitor named Pinkfong (voiced by Colleen O’Shaughnessey) crash-lands in the Wonderville home of Hogi (Cassandra Lee Morris), and instantly the two become best friends. Eager to put their shared problem-solving skills to work, they open a service called "Wonderstar," whereby neighbors can request help with life’s little inconveniences. As Hogi and Pinkfong help others, they learn about working together, sharing, and learning from mistakes.

Is it any good?

Pinkfong’s boundless enthusiasm is balanced by Hogi’s more measured, cerebral approach to challenges, and the result is sweet stories that emphasize teamwork, friendship, and kindness. No problem is too big or too small for this dynamic duo, especially when Pinkfong taps into his bag of magical tricks and finds an unpredictable solution. Together these friends demonstrate that even though they are different from each other in many ways, it’s the qualities that they share that really matter.

Pinkfong Wonderstar is structured somewhat unusually as each episode starts with Pinkfong and Hogi reflecting on events that already happened, which they synopsize using photos before delving into the story itself. It works well for the show, giving preschoolers a quick overview of the story they will see, introducing new characters outside of the plot structure, and drawing attention to the social-emotional theme that is central to the episode. All of this makes it easy for kids to grasp the positive messages the show has to offer.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how Pinkfong and Hogi work together to solve problems for themselves and others. How do they resolve differences over the best way to do so? Do they share the leadership role? What are some challenges that arise in working with others instead of alone?

  • How does Pinkfong show that he’s always open to learning new things? How does this same willingness help in the real world? Why is it sometimes hard to admit when we’ve made a mistake? What is the benefit of doing so? 

  • What elements of this story emphasize qualities like compassion and teamwork? Where in your life do you encounter people with similar qualities? How can you use them to inspire your own actions?
