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

    I grew up watching this show. I'd get up every Sunday morning before everyone else was up and I'd turn on the TV. I'd always switch to Playhouse Disney hoping that PB&J Otter was on. When it was, I was the happiest child on earth.



    The show is great for young children, but that doesn't mean the whole family can't enjoy it! I remember nights when my family would join me in watching the show. It teaches valuable life lessons for young watchers and provides a means of entertainment and learning like no other program. With a cast of lovable and unforgettable characters, a wonderful vibrant setting and a plethora of songs the whole family will enjoy, I give PB&J Otter a 10/10. May there be many countless hours of enjoyment with PB&J Otter!moreless

  • An almost perfect cartoon

    9.5
    PB&J Otter is one of the best cartoons ever made. It has a really simple concept, because it's meant for kids, but the idea is very well done. PB&J are three otters, who are siblings and live on Lake Hoohaw with their parents and many friends. They usually go into various adventure, for example finding a treasure, building a castle, catching lighting buzz, making concerts and so on. Every episode is very well written and it makes you want to watch it many times. The characters are all nice (even tho I used not to like Flick Duck), especially Jelly Otter, my favorite. Jelly is a very creative tomboy and she as a personality similar to mine. Whenever the children are in trouble, they do a Noodle Dance to come up with some ideas, which are all great. This cartoon encourages children to be creative and to resolve their problems by themselves. The children in the show are usually very smart and sometimes they even help adults out!! I remember seeing only one episode (Otters in the Wild), when an adult (Ernest) solved the problem. As I said before, this shows teaches children that they can solve their little problems, and they don't need an adult, like those retarded children from Higglytown do.



    This show has been taken off the air in March 2009 where I live and that's bad, because this, Rolie Polie Olie and Bear in the Big Blue House were great children shows and they are still fun to watch even if you are a teen (I'm 17). The new shows on Playhouse Disney are complete crap : Higglytown Heroes ripped off and killed the original concept of PB&J and can you tell me who the heck the Imagination Movers are? Luckily, I recorded almost every episode of PB&J Otter and I have to say the 98& is really good: there are only 4 episodes I dislike, but the others one are really good.

    If you want to be introducedinto this show, you should watch the episodes: "Hope Castle", "Otters in the Wild", "The Ice Moose", "A Hoohaw Halloween", "A Sledding we will go". This show is my favorite Playhouse Disney's cartoon and trust me, you gotta love it! Disney, please, bring this cartoon back on TV, or, if you want to do something better, release the complete series on DVD!!!!!moreless
