PBS KIDS Live! Really BIG tiny Adventure is the story of Dot, Dee, and Del, the PBS KIDS brother and sisters seen every day on PBS stations. It’s a special day and the kids are looking forward to crossing their backyard to attend a friend’s birthday party. Sounds simple, but it becomes an unexpected adventure when the group gets shrunk to the size of grasshoppers. A lot of surprises are in store for the pint-sized kids including meeting and learning about the little creatures that live just under foot; music and interactive audience fun; and the solution to the “mystery of the missing tail.” Will they solve all the really big, tiny challenges and grow full-size in time for the birthday fun? You’ll find out in PBS KIDS Live! Really BIG tiny Adventure, an exciting and educational experience for the whole family.
