How Much Watching Time Do You Have This Weekend?
Our TV critic recommends a darling preschool series from 1999, an incisive new Norwegian comedy and an inspiring Australian dog show.
This weekend I have 22 minutes and a preschooler.
When to watch: Now, on Peacock or the Roku Channel.
This animated series for very young viewers debuted in 1999 and has finally made its way to streaming. Based on the popular Maisy books, by Lucy Cousins, the show feels timeless, with gentle narration and cheerful colors. Maisy is largely devoid of conflict and follows the mouse and her pals as they experience picnics, join parades and captain ferries for other animals. Its all very chill and darling what fun! and each episode is broken into four shorter segments. If your family enjoys shows where the sound of ducks and penguins webbed feet slapping the ground is a major element, watch (and listen) to this.
