As the U.S. enters its third month of mandatory quarantines and shelter-in-place orders due to COVID-19, kids may find themselves full of questions and concerns. But, what if SpongeBob and Woody Woodpecker could help answer some of those questions?
Some of animation’s most famous voice talent are joining forces to record a series of kid-focused PSAs for the podcast A Moment for Kids. Cartoon favorites Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants), Tara Strong (The Fairly Odd Parents’ Timmy Turner), Eric Bauza (Woody Woodpecker), Jess Harnell (Transformers’ Ironhide), and Jeff Bennett (Johnny Bravo) have recorded 1- to 2-minute messages, designed to help address kids’ concerns about the coronavirus pandemic in an entertaining and informative way.
A Moment for Kids is a sub-series of A Moment Of Your Time, presented by CurtCo Media and produced by Jenny Curtis. The series is produced by Splash Entertainment and was created during the current quarantine period with the mission of providing a space for community and solidarity. Each episode is set to music and provides empowering messages to listeners with scripted segments about washing hands and other ways to stay healthy, as well as constructive stay-at-home activities, such as art projects, practicing musical instruments, calling grandparents, and more.
