PB&J Otter is an American animated musical children's television series that aired on Disney Channel's preschool block Playhouse Disney from March 15, 1998 to October 23, 2000.[1] The series centers on the Otter family who live in the rural fishing community of Lake Hoohaw. Most stories revolve around the three Otter kids: older brother Peanut, younger sister Jelly and baby sister Butter (named after the peanut butter and jelly sandwich), as well as their friends and neighbors.[2]

The show was created by Jim Jinkins, who also created Doug and Allegra's Window, 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, Fred Newman and Rich Mendoza.[citation needed] 65 episodes were produced.[3]

In 2000, PB&J Otter was nominated for an Annie Award for "Outstanding Music in an Animated Series".[4]
