Pete The Cat Season 2 Plot: What is it About?
Based on the best-selling children’s book, ‘Pete the Cat’ is a fun, optimistic series that is musically driven and is about the day-to-day challenges that are personally relatable to the kids. It encourages them to try new things, be positive about life, it also talks about friendship and forming deep bonds with your friends. It stresses on good and healthy communication between kids and adults and also among the kids. The animation is great and easy on the eyes. It is not loud and does not aim just to get a laugh from the kids. The humor is more about understanding and getting a smile from the kids, unlike slapstick comedy which is all about the big laugh. The music is soothing, catchy, and entertaining. The kids love to sing along to it. It is one of the best shows out there for young kids as well as adults.
When asked Costello about his role in the series and what made it different from anything else that he had ever done before, he said,” I was particularly tickled by the idea that my wife and I would play these two characters. They gave us a little outline, and I loved that she was in a cat punk band. Pete plays the guitar, so there’s music through it. And of course, we’re not just singing, we’re also speaking. We saw one of the first episodes, and I found it really touching. More often than not, in live-action films, I’ve been a version of myself; or Man in Glasses or Man Who Wears Hat and Glasses, or another kind of nonspecific person. This is a complete transformation.”
The parents are the ones who are loving the show the most as it is a great show for their young kids and teaches them to develop their character strengths with meaningful storylines and catchy songs that keep the kids entertained while they also learn the important lessons that will help them in their day to day lives.
