Show Summary

Welcome to the PB&J Otter guide at TV.com. 1997 must have been a good year for New York-based animation studio Jumbo Pictures, Inc. The company was enjoying the success of its recently renewed "Doug", and was also working on producing "101 Dalmations: The Series" - which premiered later that year. 1997 was also the year that the company's founder, Jim Jinkins, created the upbeat, musical animated series "PB&J Otter" for the Disney Channel's Playhouse Disney block. Developed with the cooperation of Harvard Cognitive Skills Group, Project Zero, the show premiered in March of 1998. "PB&J Otter" tells the continuing story of the day-to-day adventures of three young Otter siblings - older brother Peanut, younger sister Jelly, and baby sister Butter - and their friends and family, living life in a small community known as Lake Hoohaw. Other characters include PB&J's friends: sarcastic Flick Duck; slightly paranoid Munchy Beaver; and Pinch Raccoon, a lover of anything dainty. Pinch's rambunctious younger brother, Scootch, makes a few appearances as well. Ernest and Opal are PB&J's understanding and supportive parents. Banjo-picking Mayor Jeff is the unofficial town patriarch. The Snooty Poodles are the wealthy, upper-class neighbors (always quick to point out that they live on the other side of the lake), who seem to be on a never-ending quest for the most expensive things money can buy. Also, PB&J's adventurous aunt, Anna (Aunt Nanner), visits every now and then, often bearing unique gifts for her nieces and nephew. "PB&J Otter" originally ran on the Disney Channel for 3 seasons, on Saturday and Sunday mornings. In July 1999, the show began to air on weekday mornings, as well.moreless

  • This show is awesome

    Loved it as a kid, still love it now at age 29. In my opinion, it's one of the best cartoons of all time.
  • Why do people like this show?

    I honestly can't even tell why. It is bland, uncreative, and what kind of names are PB and J? STUPID!! I really can't stand watching a minute of it. No redeeming qualities, like other shows like I am Weasel, which this reminds me of. I HATE PB&J OTTER!
  • PB&J Otter rocks my socks

    I vaguely remember this show since I preferred Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network when I was little. A friend of mine is a big fan of this show, so I wanted to know what I was missing out on. Watched a couple episodes on YouTube and Dailymotion, and... whaddya know - it's an awesome show.

    PB&J Otter revolves around three otter siblings, Peanut, Baby Butter, and Jelly (obviously named after the sandwich). They reside in a small town by the name of Lake Hoohaw. They embark in adventures such as building a castle, looking for treasure, going camping, etc. During the middle of their experiences, they encounter a problem and think of a solution by doing something called the Noodle Dance. It's better than most shows like... cough cough... Caillou. I suggest you watch an episode or two if you have the time. It's not a surprise if you spot the Playhouse Disney or Disney Junior logo on the corner of the screen...moreless
  • What an awful show. I can't believe I actually watched it!

    This is a terrible show. It's overly bright and child-friendly, there's singing everywhere, and the stories are mediocre at best. It exists solely to entertain a Barney-age audience and the fact that people are lamenting how it's off the air show how badly nostalgia warps our minds. If anything, we should be grateful that the world is trying it's best to bury this overly child-friendly crap. It's as bad as Barney, the Teletubbies, and Baby Looney Tunes (which, I admit, I've fallen victim to the Nostalgia filter of). To those of you who are saying "oh it was so much better than what's on today"... try to look at it from the standpoint of an adult seeing it for the first time. THEN compare it to today's crap. The difference is less than you think it is.moreless
