Joan Cusak narrates the adventures of a chicken named Peep, a robin (Chirp), an endearing duck (Quack) and an extended family of friends and (occasional) foes.

Peep and the Big Wide World II/Pocoyo airs Sunday, July 4 at 9 a.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11).

The Emmy-winning science and math series is set in and around a large urban park — a place of great wonder and mystery, a "big wide world" the characters are forever eager to explore. This season, the animals learn about sand, plants, food, animal behavior and patterns, counting, collecting and shapes, as well as Groundhog Day and Earth Day.

Peep narrator Joan Cusack, the mother of two young boys, marvels over the everyday science offered on the show and what it means to kids at home: “I’ve learned that just because you’re four or five years old and still using a sippy cup doesn’t mean you’re not a scientist… I love this show! It inspires kids and lets me see the world through their curious eyes.”

This season each PEEP episode features a seven-minute Pocoyo interstitial, delightful 3-D animation about a curious young boy's adventures with his animal friends. British actor and comedian Stephen Fry narrates.

Each half-hour episode contains two animated stories highlighting specific science or math concepts, plus two live-action segments of real kids exploring science and math in everyday places.
