Schuyler Public Library is one of the libraries that will air a sneak preview of the new PBS series “Pinkalicious and Peterriffic,” based on the best-selling children’s books by sisters Victoria and Elizabeth Kann.

In addition to the original “Pinkalicious,” books in the series include “Purplicious,” “Goldilicious,” “Silverlicious,” “Emeraldalicious,” “Aqualicious” and the newest addition “Peterrific.” The screening is sponsored by NET and Nebraska’s PBS and NPR stations. The premier of the new series is Monday, Feb. 19, but Schuyler Public Library will have its special screening on Saturday, Feb. 10, beginning at 11 a.m.

The five episodes to be shown in Schuyler are:

“Invisible Band” -- The Pinkville marching band comes down with a bad case of the whiffling sneezes and can't play, disappointing the town. Luckily, Pinkalicious persuades her friends to use their voices to become the Invisible Marching Band.

“Pinkalicious” -- If there is one thing Pinkalicious loves most, it's the color pink! When Pinkalicious wakes up to discover her whole body has suddenly turned pink, she's ecstatic. However, Pinkalicious soon discovers that you can have too much of a good thing.

“Slumber Party” -- Pinkalicious hosts a Princess of Pink slumber party, but one of her friends gets homesick and isn’t sure she wants to spend the night! Pinkalicious, Lila and Jasmine imagine a friendly pink dragon named Gertie to help them out.

“No Honking” -- Peter has a new song to share with his family, but no one seems interested. Maybe it’s because his song uses his really loud scooter horn.

“Pinkabotta & Peterbotta” -- Pinkalicious and Peter create Robotta, a robot that can do anything, including helping them clean their rooms. But when Robotta malfunctions, they're left with a big mess. Fortunately, the kids figure out a way to make clean-up fun -- pretend to be robots!

If you love the Pinkalicious book series yourself or you are the parent of children who love the books, please take advantage of this opportunity to watch episodes of the new series before they air on television. There will be Pinkalicious activity sheets and, as always, plenty of popcorn.

Circle the date on your calendar “Pinkalicious and Peterriffic” on Saturday, Feb. 10, at 11 a.m. at Schuyler Public Library!
