The PBS Kids preschool block is injecting Spanish content and new original music to mark its third-season launch on May 19.

The two hour on-air block that includes Curious George, Super Why! and Clifford the Big Red Dog is touting all-new eps of each series and new content from hosts Miss Lori and Hooper, the CGI guinea pig. Joining the pair is Spanish teacher Miss Rosa and music artist Mr. Steve.

Miss Rosa will offer remedial Spanish lessons, while Mr. Steve will bring his original music to the interstitials.

Online, www.pbskids.org will also unveil new mini-games and launch an interactive, animated version of Hooper to help children select learning games and contribute their own content to the site.
