PBS Kids breakout hit series “Peg + Cat” was a big winner at the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. The show received two Daytime Emmy Awards, one for Outstanding Pre-School Children’s Animated Program and for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program for Hayley Faith Negrin, who provides the voice of Peg on the animated series.
Daytime TV Examiner caught up with Negrin on the eve of her Emmy win at the 2014 Daytime Emmys Nominees Reception. In the video interview, the young performer talked about the show and about her nomination which unknowingly at the time, would later turn into a win.
The show, which debuted last fall, has also released their first music album of songs called "Peg and Cat's Really Big Album." “The songs on ‘Peg and Cat’s Really Big Album’ introduce foundational math and problem-solving skills in a fun and developmentally appropriate way, while engaging the whole family,” PBS Kids Digital Vice President Sara De Witt said in a statement.
Created Billy Aronson and Jennifer Oxley and produced by The Fred Rogers Company, of "Mister Roger's Neighborhood," each episode features original songs and stories in which Peg and Cat encounter a problem that requires them to use math and problem-solving skills to save the day.
“Peg and Cat’s Really Big Album” features many memorable songs, including the “Peg + Cat Theme Song”, “Pickin’ Up Chickens,” “100 Is One Zero Zero” and “Sorty Sort Sort” to name a few.
