PB&J Otter is an American animated children's television series which premiered on Playhouse Disney on December 10, 1997. A total of 65 episodes were produced during the course of its three season run, with the "farewell" episode airing on June 20, 2001 (although a Halloween episode was the last aired episode, on October 21, 2001). The series centered on the Otter family who lived in the rural fishing community of Lake Hoohaw. Most stories revolved around the Otter kids: older brother Peanut, younger sister Jelly and diapered baby Butter (named after the peanut butter and jelly sandwich), as well as their friends and neighbors. Supporting characters included gossipy Cranes, overly hygienic raccoons, a junk-collecting mayor and some very wealthy poodles.

The show was created by Jim Jinkins and executive-produced by David Campbell in close conjunction with Harvard University's Cognitive Skills Group, "Project Zero". The Group's job was to monitor each and make sure the material had a positive educational message. This show features songs by Dan Sawyer and Fred Newman.

PB&J Otter was nominated for an Annie Award for outstanding music in an animated show in 2000.[1]

The show aired in reruns on Playhouse Disney from 2001-2005 and on Disney Junior from 2012-2014.


Minor characters


Each episode was typically divided into two 11-minute stories. Some seasonal specials and the occasional 2 part episode took up the entire program length such as "Hope Castle" Parts 1 and 2. There were no commercials since episodes only lasted 22 minutes, however interstitial content was presented at the end of airings before the next show. As the network Disney Junior remains free of commercial broadcasts, airings on this network follow this format as well.
