Pound Puppies on the Hub Network
In this new original series, Pound Puppies features a team of fearless dogs whose mission is to find homes for puppies in need. Their motto is “A pup for every person and a person for every pup.” The Pound Puppies appear to be “average dogs” keeping the humans who are running Shelter 17 in the dark while helping “dog-kind” find loving families. Once you’re a Pound Puppy, you’re always a Pound Puppy.

With more and more children joining us online, it’s important for parents to be mindful of where their children go to view and interact with content. That’s why we were excited to host the webseries, Ruby Skye P.I. on our growing network of online content.
Ruby Skye P.I. was designed to be a safe and fun web series for today’s digital tween. Think Nancy Drew meets the Internet bringing mystery and adventure into the story with Ruby and her friends. The episodes are not as long as on TV but each one has a different “theme” and is smartly done by master story-tellers Julie Strassman-Cohn and Jill Gollick.
For those parents of tweens and teens out there, we’re sure you (and your kids) can relate to Ruby, curious and determined to solve mysteries. For this series the clues are hilarious and intriguing, missing birthday brownies, underfed fake pets and so on. Each episode ends with a cliffhanger, spurring imagination to take hold with the audience. Of course, if your tween wants to get creative and solve mysteries around your house after watching this fun series, be sure to give them a video camera and have them create their own story. We think this series will inspire those budding actors and directors out there to create their own magic. Be sure to stay tuned to more updates on Ruby Skye P.I. as we’ll be hosting some live shows with the creators so your kids can meet and talk to the team behind this web TV series.

Disney is getting into the spirit by featuring special programming to help raise awareness about courtesy, civility, kindness and manners as well as rally people to act with good manners in their everyday lives.
Tune into Playhouse Disney this week for the hit short-form series, “Can You Teach My Alligator Manners?,” beginning May 10 -14 (8:25 am/7:25am c ) on Disney Channel. “Can You Teach My Alligator Manners?” stars Mikey and his pet alligator, Al. Mikey encourages viewers to help him teach his scaly best friend how to behave properly. Whether it’s being a good sport on the playground or how to behave properly at the library or in a restaurant, it’s up to Mikey and preschoolers to help Al learn good manners.
In addition to the special programming, beginning May 10, parents and preschoolers will be able to visit www.PlayhouseDisney.com and download super cool color print-outs of Mikey and Al’s tips on how to have good manners in various situations including Team Sports, Nature Park, Museum, Swimming Pool, Elevator, among others.

This is a great start for helping remind kids about things we try to teach them at home – please feel free to share this with your friends (and the kids who your kids play with – who you want to send home when they are not being model citizens… wink).
