    Welcome To the Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks Guide!

    Piggley Winks is a PBS kids show about an Irish pig, Piggley, and his friends: Dannan , and Ferny. Piggley lived with his mom and dad and sister together on Raloo Farm. Piggley has a lot of adventures with his friends in each episode.

    Each episode opens with Grandpa Piggley, an Irish pig now living in North America, telling stories to some or all of his three grandchildren. His childhood stories are set in 1930s Ireland and surround young Piggley, Dannan the duck, and Ferny the cow, son of a Spanish-born blacksmith.

    Despite the spectacular animation (best examples: water reflections and sunsets), like all other PBS Kids shows, Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks also relies on live-action shots. Hosting these "Live & Learn" scenes (and we will let you pronounce "Live" either way) is Cobi Jones (note spelling), a star of the L.A. Galaxy soccer team.

    Like all PBS Kids shows, Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks airs on a piecemeal basis. Not all PBS affiliates run the series, and some have never heard of it. But it enjoys a regular run on PBS Kids Channel, daily at 3:30 P.M. ET with a repeat at 10:30 P.M.
