Wilson & Ditch: Digging America is making its debut online as PBS Kids Go! and The Jim Henson Company launch the comedic property.
The site at www.pbskidsgo.org/wilsonandditch takes early elementary school kids on an American adventure with the titular gophers who explore the country in their eco-friendly van and teach kids about American culture, history and geography.
It’s funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the Henson Digital Puppetry Studio brings the characters to life. The site features webisodes, interactive games, a travel blog, on-location audio podcasts, downloadable activities and original comics.
