‘Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum’ joins PBS Kids lineup Nov. 11

Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum, a new PBS Kids series, premieres Monday, Nov. 11, on NPT with a one-hour special airing at 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. This animated series combines adventure, history and comedy and is aimed at children ages 4 to 7. The show is based on the bestselling children’s book series, Ordinary People Change the World, by Brad Meltzer and illustrator Christopher Eliopoulos.

In each half-hour episode, intrepid Xavier Riddle, his indomitable little sister Yadina and their reluctant, yet determined, friend Brad – along with their robot buddy, Berby – turn to the Secret Museum. Here they travel back in time to consult real-life historical figures when they were kids to get help solving a problem. Helen Keller, George Washington Carver, Amelia Earhart, Zora Neale Hurston and Charles Dickens are the “kids” Xavier and his pals meet in the first week of shows. Upcoming “guests” include Harriet Tubman, Neil Armstrong and Susan B. Anthony.

Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum will air weekdays at 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on NPT. The series will air weekdays at 6 p.m. and weekends at 4:30 p.m. on NPT3 PBS Kids.

Children’s programming is available around the clock on NPT3, our 24-hour PBS Kids Channel, available over-the-air at 8.3, on Comcast 242 and Charter 189 (or 192, depending on your viewing area). NPT3 PBS Kids is available for streaming at wnpt.org/npt3.
