3-2-1 PENGUINS! draws upon characters from two stories -- using both long- and short-form material involving these characters -- to provide socio-emotional messages to children. 3-2-1 PENGUINS! features two children Jason and Michelle whose vacation at their grandmother's cottage ends up being more adventure than they expect when their toy spaceship with four toy penguins comes to life. The children are sucked into the spaceship, where they meet the now live penguins and journey through space to solve an inter-galactic disaster threatening the penguins and their friends. Each story begins with a problem and ends after the children have learned an important socio-emotional message through their adventure with the penguins. LARRYBOY STORIES is about a young cucumber-janitor named Larry from the Daily Bumble who assumes a superhero persona to fight crimes and save lives, bringing peace and safety to the small town of Bumblyburg. In doing so, Larry takes us through his adventures where he and his viewers learn core values of honesty, friendship, respect for others, forgiveness, and love for all through socio-emotional messages embedded within the story.
