A cable-access kids' show also meant for adults. A combination of Sesame Street and Pee Wee's playhouse boasting an ever-expanding musical guest list such as Arcade Fire and Bright Eyes.
Produced in Washington, the show is a collection short, bizzare, and funny skits. For filmmaker and producer Stuckey, "Pancake Mountain is a response to what he views as dumbed-down children's programming made toxic by an overdose of advertising and product placement. If his low-budget half-hour show can entertain kids without marketing to them, then Stuckey, the 40-year-old father of two teenage girls, will consider it a success."
