The Curse of the Grebes/Arthur Changes Gears (Episode #1006)

KQED Kids: Mon, Oct 1, 2012 -- 2:00 AM

* The Curse of the Grebes: The Elwood City Grebes haven't won the Baseball Championship since 1918. But with the addition of three players - voiced by real-life Red Sox players Johnny Damon, Mike Timlin, and Edgar Renteria! - the title is finally within reach. There's one problem - whenever Buster is at the game, the Grebes lose! Is Buster the team's curse?! Or can the players convince Buster that his loyalty as a fan is more valuable to them than winning?
* Arthur Changes Gears: Arthur finally saves enough money to buy the bike of his dreams! But - this new bike is way too nice to actually ride. What if it gets wet? Or dirty?! It takes the whole gang - plus a special visit by the Ghost of Bikes Never Ridden - to convince Arthur that his treasured possession is better off being enjoyed than kept on display.

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
