When a mysterious, gigantic blob is soaring towards earth, Peg and Cat are called upon to solve a problem of national importance!

Using their problem-solving skills, Peg and Cat will work to overcome an array of challenges — from collecting 100 chickens running loose in the White House to stopping a blob that threatens to destroy the Earth! The episode gives Peg, Cat and viewers a great lesson in patterns … and they amazing things studying them can help you do!

In addition to putting their math skills to work (and helping PBS KIDS who are watching to do the same!) Peg and Cat also get to interact with friends old and new, including the President of the United States, who is voiced by Sandra Oh.
