Channel appears to feel the same way about awesome 80's
throwbacks, and aims to get preschoolers dancing to a new beat with
the premiere of new Playhouse Disney short-form series called
Airing on Saturday, Feb. 27, at 6:25 a.m. ET/PT, the new series
is all about supporting Disney's ongoing commitment to helping kids
and parents achieve healthier lifestyles by getting preschoolers to
enjoy physical fun.
The animation, live-action combo will star Dance-A-Lot, a robot
with rhythm who teaches preschoolers simple dance steps including
the robot, the blue jay, the dinosaur stomp and the clock, all set
to the music of Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh.
PlayhouseDisney.com will feature a "flip book" highlighting a
variety of dance moves from the series.
