Milwaukee PBS KIDS Family Night

Enjoy Milwaukee PBS’ Family Night With Your Children!

Pop the popcorn, gather the juice boxes and make a date for Family Night with your children. It’s easy with a little help from Milwaukee PBS KIDS.

Each Friday, Milwaukee PBS brings you special programming for your family. Between 6 pm and 8 pm, you can enjoy some of the PBS KIDS’ best programming including movie specials and themed programming. The Family Night specials will repeat again on Saturday and Sunday nights. You can find all the fun on Milwaukee PBS KIDS Channel 10.3 over the air or on Channel 975 on Spectrum.

Things kick off with Odd Squad: The Movie. In this feature-length event, a rival group of adults called Weird Team arrive with a gadget that fixes any odd problem. As a result, the Odd Squad is run out of business and all the agents are forced to disband and go back to their lives as regular kids. Using math skills and teamwork, the kids discover Weird Team isn’t actually solving problems, but just covering them up. The Season 2 cast teams up with the Season 1 cast to stop Weird Team and save the world from destruction.

And that’s just the start. You’ll also see specials from all your favorites, Wild Kratts, Splash and Bubbles, Daniel Tiger and many more. Family Night will also feature world premiere movie events such as Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Tiger Family Trip, Wild Kratts: Alaska Adventure and Ready Jet Go: Return to Bortron.

Remember, that you can watch Milwaukee PBS KIDS on your computer, tablet, phone and of course, on television.
