This October, new episodes and returning favorites premiere on-air and on streaming platforms, including PBS KIDS’ latest hit, MOLLY OF DENALI

This October, PBS KIDS invites families to celebrate the beginning of autumn with new episodes of their favorite shows, new games and a wide array of activities. Starting October 7, PBS KIDS will kick off a full week of brand-new episodes of MOLLY OF DENALI on PBS stations and the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel and live stream. Viewers will join Molly, Trini and Tooey on adventures to see the Northern Lights, attend a totem pole raising in Sitka and more, while showcasing kindness through Alaska Native values like showing respect to others and sharing what you have. Additionally, PBS KIDS will premiere new episodes of ARTHUR. And beginning October 14, families will be able to watch returning Halloween favorites through the end of the month.

We’ve heard wonderful feedback from fans of MOLLY OF DENALI, and were thrilled to see that it was streamed more than 27 million times during its launch,” said Linda Simensky, Head of PBS KIDS Content. “This fall, we’re looking forward to a season of new, rich stories and returning favorites that the whole family can enjoy together.”

To continue the fun with Molly, a new MOLLY OF DENALI app will be available to download for free later this month. In this app, kids ages 4-8 can explore places in Molly’s Alaskan village, Qyah. This includes going on dog sledding missions, fishing, creating beading projects or helping run the Denali Trading Post while using books, diagrams, and captioned photos to gain information to help solve problems, accomplish tasks, and help Molly’s friends and family. The suite of educational games in the MOLLY OF DENALI app are designed to support foundational literacy skills in using an understanding informational texts.

Hands-on activities and resources, including a kindness and empathy hub for Bullying Prevention Month will be available on PBS KIDS for Parents. PBS will also offer PreK-12 teachers an easy way to integrate kindness themes into their instruction with a range of curriculum-aligned videos, lesson plans and games. Teachers can use these resources to enhance homework assignments and kick-start classroom discussions. These free resources cover a range of subjects and are available to teachers nationwide on pbslearningmedia.org.

PBS KIDS will also offer a variety of Halloween-themed games on the free PBS KIDS Games App and pbskids.org, including fan favorites like Curious George Pumpkin Boo, the Cat in the Hat Corn Maze Craze, Daniel Tiger Dress Up and Peg + Cat Parade. Pumpkin-carving templates with favorite PBS KIDS characters and more can be found on the PBS KIDS for Parents Halloween Hub. And PreK-12 teachers can integrate Halloween themes into their instruction with a range of curriculum-aligned videos, lesson plans and games on the PBS LearningMedia Halloween collection.
