It’s a pretty big job for these small pets, but this paw-some team is certified and ready for action.
Also from Nelvana, The Remarkable Mr. King, based on the Kids Can Press picture book series by Montreal author-illustrator Geneviève Côté, premieres Saturday, October 5 at 10:10 a.m. Mr. King is a well-meaning, short sighted little lion who thinks he should know everything, but sometimes his ‘big think’ causes big snags and tangles.
