ADVENTURAMA SUNDAY, JANUARY 24 @ 11:30AM
All aboard for a journey into the wildest depths of your imagination! Meet mysterious birds, bumbling monsters, a magical box of toothpicks, and a miniature pirate army of three, as you discover that the best parts of adventures are the memories and friends you make along the way.

Pedro is holding interviews for the role of his new secret friend, but with a list of candidates that includes his dad, a dog that ate his resume, and a bee that can't do more than 50 push-ups, he's not sure if he'll ever find the friend he needs.
Lea and the Forest Pirates

When her baby brother disappears, Lea must face her fear and set off on an adventure through the forest, where she finds friends in the most unexpected places.
Notes to parents: Adventures can be rowdy! There is a snake in "Lea and the Forest Pirates," a glass of wine in "The Job Interview," brief glimpses of video game violence and a dead bird in "Manel and the Toothpicks," and a cigar in "The Search for the Monster of Lake Quannapowitt."
