HERO ELEMENTARY is a new series that premieres June 1 with a one-hour special and then fifteen new episodes. HERO ELEMENTARY is a school for budding superheroes, where kids learn to master their innate powers, like flying and teleportation, while exploring science along the way. The stories in HERO ELEMENTARY center around the Sparks’ Crew, a team of super students. Lucita Sky, AJ Gadgets, Sara Snap, and Benny Bubbles, led by their quirky and enthusiastic teacher, Mr. Sparks, work together to help people, solve problems, and try to make the world a better place. When their imperfect powers aren’t up to the task, they look to their other powers – the superpowers of science – to help them investigate, observe, make predictions, and figure out a solution.

DINOSAUR TRAIN will premiere a new Father’s Day themed episode on June 15. Additionally, look for encore Father’s Day appropriate episodes from ARTHUR, DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, and CYBERCHASE around the holiday.

Also in June, look for new episodes of CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG (Fridays, June 5-July 3), PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC (June 8-10), and MOLLY OF DENALI (June 29-July 1).
