To celebrate the June 21 premiere of Sid’s “No School Singalong Special!” Sid himself will be on hand to meet with kids and parents, and welcome them to a dynamic and interactive investigation station hosted by local PBS affiliate KCET/Los Angeles where kids can investigate, explore and discover!

Also in attendance will be Buddy the T-rex from “Dinosaur Train,” the new hit series on PBS KIDS. Additional special guests include Red Fraggle, star of the hit series “Fraggle Rock,” with world-renowned puppeteer Karen Prell; Paul Rugg, star of the PBSKIDS GO! Web destination “Wilson & Ditch: Digging America,” who will demonstrate the Emmy Award winning Henson Digital Puppetry Studio; and creative Guru Courtney Watkins, star of the online creativity destination “The Possibility Shop” featured on Disney Online’s FamilyFun.com*

Schedule of Events

10:00 AM: Co-presented by the Producers Guild of America/New Media Council as part of the Saturday 2.0 series, a screening will take place of A Better World: Living in Harmony beginning with a rarely seen episode of “Fraggle Rock” (1983), the TV series that contrasts three communities - the musical Fraggles, the industrious Doozers, and the giant Gorgs - who all co-exist in a carefully balanced underground world far below those mysterious silly creatures who live above ground (the humans).

Next is "Song of the Cloud Forest" (1989) directed by Jim Henson which features a blend of music, puppetry and animation resulting in a vibrant landscape of color that echoes the natural beauty found in the real world's rain forest. Starring a brightly colored cast of puppet animals, the show celebrates the beauty of this natural environment while educating the audience of the real dangers threatening the survival of both the rain forest and its inhabitants.

11:30 AM: Premiere of “Sid the Science Kid:” “No School Singalong Special!”

12:00 PM: Premiere of “Dinosaur Train:” “Pteranodon Family World Tour,” “Gilbert the Conductor”

12:30 PM: “Wilson & Ditch: Digging America:” Two comical gopher brothers explore America

12:45 PM: “The Possibility Shop:” Creative Guru Courtney Watkins demonstrates how to turn ordinary afternoons into extraordinary creative adventures for the whole family

*10:30 AM – 2:30 PM Activity stations and photo opportunities in the courtyard
