Curious George, the WGBH-produced television series, is designed to inspire kids to explore science, math, and engineering in the world around them in a fun and entertaining way. Based on the best-selling Curious George books by Margret and H.A. Rey, the daily series expands George’s world to include a host of colorful characters and original locales, while maintaining the charm of the beloved books. Curious George airs weekdays on WGBH and WGBY at 8:00 a.m.

Clifford, his human Emily Elizabeth, and his dog pals Cleo and T-Bone introduce children to gentle lessons about being part of a community, acceptance and resolving differences. Clifford's "every dog" kindness has made him and his book series enormously popular with parents and kids for almost 40 years.  Clifford airs weekdays on WGBH 2 at 6:00 a.m. For more information about these characters and WGBH and WGBY Kids Club offerings, visit www.wgbh.org or www.wgby.org.
