Season 2 – Animated Spaced-Themed Series Ready Jet Go! April 2nd PBS Kids

Season 2 of the hit animated space-themed series Ready Jet Go! blasts off Monday, April 2, on PBS KIDS (check local listings) with a special week of girl-empowering episodes that will get young viewers from coast-to-coast psyched about space and science. A brand-new out-of-this-world episode will launch every weekday.

The new episodes feature the adventures of Boxwood Terrace’s very own Mindy Melendez – starting with the half-hour special, “Mindy Turns 5”. Now that Mindy’s a big girl, it’s her turn to zoom off to space with Jet and the gang for the first time, at last! And the Season 2 fun continues this summer with a space-infused new episode set to roll out each Wednesday in June and July.
For even more stellar STEM-focused learning, each episode features live-action interstitials with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory astrophysicist Dr. Amy Mainzer, science consultant for the series.
To help ring in the new season, Ready Jet Go! creator Craig Bartlett (Hey Arnold!, Dinosaur Train) will participate in a can’t-miss Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) on April 2 at 3pm ET. Fans can stop by to ask Craig about the new season, what’s coming next – and anything else Redditors might want to know about. We’d love for you to spread the word about the upcoming AMA, and we invite you to join Craig yourself to ask him anything! Just check out the Sub-Reddit IAmA on April 2 and Craig will be there!
Ready Jet Go! Season 2 premiere week, tune in with the little space explorers in their life for exciting new adventures every day from April 2 to April 6!

Episode Descriptions – Monday, April 2, 2018
“Mindy Turns 5” – Half-Hour Special!
Mindy has finally turned 5 and is super excited that she is now old enough to go to space. But she’s planned a tea party in the back yard. The kids convince Mindy to move her tea party to the Moon! In her first trip to space ever, Mindy gets to board the Propulsion family saucer and experience space travel, rounding out their Moon tea party with a quick trip out to Pluto and back.

“Endless Summer”: Jet is amazed to find out that the entire Earth doesn’t have the same season at the same time. So he flies with Sydney and Sean from the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere to compare, and experience holidays in winter and summer… all in one day!
“Jet Shrinks the Kids”: Mindy feels bad that she’s the smallest kid in the group, so sympathetic Jet and friends use a shrink-ray and become her size. The plan goes awry, and Jet, Sean, Sydney, and Sunspot become the size of mice. Mindy has to follow intricate diagrams to reverse the shrink-ray!

“Mindy’s Ice Rink”: Mindy is impatient for winter because she wants to ice skate. So Jet, Sean, Sydney, and Celery fly to Saturn’s icy rings to gather ice from them, and return to build a Saturn-ringed skating rink around Jet’s house.
“Measure for Measure”: Jet, Sydney, Sean, Mindy, and Sunspot decide to make a scaled replica of the solar system using found items in their own neighborhood, and in doing so learn that an Astronomical Unit is the distance from the Earth to the Sun.

“Mindy and Carrot Bake”: While making a cake, Carrot and Mindy find they are one are short one ingredient, so they head to the store, but Carrot accidentally pushes a wrong button on the wagon’s newly-updated control panel and they take off into outer space! Using a diagram, methodical experimentation, and record keeping, Mindy and Carrot figure out how to properly fly the saucer back home, where they finally finish the cake.
“Commander Cressida Begins”: Mindy has a problem: now that she’s been to space with the bigger kids, she realizes how much there is out there to see! How can she decide where to explore next? Sydney asks her mom, Dr. Skelley, who presents them with the very first edition of Commander Cressida comics! In reading the comic book, Mindy comes to appreciate that she, like Commander Cressida, can explore space “one adventure at a time.”

“Mindy’s Bedtime”: Mindy has to go to bed when the Sun goes down, but she’s having such a fun day with her friends, she asks Jet and the others to help her keep the Sun from going down. The older kids humor Mindy and try to help “slow down the Sun.” All their efforts make Mindy so sleepy that she decides to go home and sleep.
“Galileo, Galileo!”: Sydney and Jet are having a hard time explaining to Mindy that the Sun doesn’t move – the Earth is moving around the Sun, so the Sun just SEEMS to move. Then Sean comes over dressed as his science hero Galileo, getting ready to do a school report. Mindy asks “Galileo” to explain how come the Sun seems to move, and Sean practices for his report by explaining how the planets move, in character as Galileo!
