Amazon Prime’s PBS Kids channel is adding several popular animated shows over the next two weeks.

Today, Ready Jet Go!: One Small Step, a special one-hour movie about space exploration and the Apollo 11 mission, is scheduled to bow on the streamer.

Jet and friends are having a sleepover celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. That’s when Jet reveals he’s built a super saucer. The kids try out the ship by flying to the Moon. Unfortunately, they have a rough landing, breaking the spacecraft. They continue their sleepover on the Moon, but soon Jet and Sunspot have disappeared. Now the kids must find their lost friends and also repair the ship.

The first two seasons of Ready Jet Go! are available with a regular Amazon Prime subscription. Seasons three to nine are accessible via the PBS Kids add-on channel subscription, or as individual episodes, which can be purchased starting at $1.99.

Pinkalicious & Peterrific

PBS Kids will also add four Pinkalicious & Peterrific episodes on June 21.

In one episode, “Face Painting/Sailing Away,” children join Pinkalicious and her brother Peter as they take their teddy bears sailing in homemade paper boats and get their faces painted. In another, “Best Day Ever/Catchy Song,” pop star Jonah Rose is coming to Pinkville. Pinkalicious is inspired to write a song that has everyone in Pinkville singing. Other episodes include “Peterrific/Mother’s Day Surprise” and “Lost Voice/Doll Hospital.”

Four seasons are currently available via Amazon Prime’s PBS Kids. Individual episodes are available to purchase starting at $1.99.

The Berenstain Bears

Four additional episodes of the popular bear family will bow on June 28.

In “The Summer Job/The Big Red Kite,” Brother and Sister learn about farming working with Farmer Ben. In “By the Sea/Catch the Bus,” the Bear Family go to their beach house for vacation, but the cubs don’t want to unpack and clean. Other episodes include “Too Much Vacation/Trouble With Grown-Ups” and “White Water Adventures/Showdown At Birder’s Wood.”

Four seasons are currently available via Amazon Prime’s PBS Kids. Individual episodes are for sale starting at $1.99.

The PBS Kids add-on channel costs $4.99 a month after a seven-day free trial.
