If you’ve been around my blog very much you know that we Chicagoland residence and LOVE the city and especially the many sites and things to see and do including the museums parks etc. Thanks why I was super excited to learn about a new and exciting Chicago-made TV show for kids, Moochie Kalala Detectives Club, on WTTW Channel 11 on Jan. 18 at 11 a.m.
About The Show
Two young kids, Mandy (Evelyn Alumbreros) and Kyle (Gregory Vasquez) form the Moochie Kalala Detectives Club to uncover the truth behind their grandpa’s wild folk stories. Every Saturday, Grandpa (Tim Kazurinsky) comes over and shares a ridiculous story that twists the kids thinking about science. To uncover the real story, the kids head to actual Museums, Institutions and Zoos and meet with real scientists, zoologists, archeologists, architects and other experts. Each ½ hour episode combines creative storytelling and ancient myths with real-science, and in process shows kids that they can be both creative and scientific! Age appropriate for families with kids ages 2-12.
Here are the museums featured in the upcoming episodes:
