Why It Rocks
- Great animation that's reminiscent of notebook and graph drawings. Peg even draws with her stick on the fourth wall as if it were graph paper.
- Appealing and well-drawn character designs, especially with Peg.
- The idea of a girl having a talking cat with them solving problems is amazing and pretty original.
- It teaches kids all about math, using simple problems to keep them up with their education, such as fractions, addition, etc.
- The show can even appeal to not just kids, but adults too, as it's very entertaining for them too.
- An extremely catchy theme song played with the ukelele that the viewer can easily sing along to.
- Cat is a fun character and a great comic relief.
- Every voice actor does a good job playing the characters.
- There's even a fun musical number in every episode.
- The "Problem Solved" song.
- It even got a made-for-TV movie called Peg + Cat Save The World.
- Well-made pop culture references. One episode was based on The Twilight Zone.
- Peg can be pretty annoying, especially when she's "totally freaking out".
- The songs can be pretty repetitive, especially the aforementioned "Problem Solved" song.
- Richard's constant whining when there is a problem, even a very small one, can get very irritating.
