The exciting conclusion of this 2 part episode, and the conclusion of The World of Buddy Pegs Season 1!
After Watson, Wrigley, and Schmiddy disappear into the secret tunnel below Buddy Pegs, they emerge in Schmiddy's secret workshop. Watson calls a “sticking around meeting” because he has another hair brain idea for a new gadget to be added to his bike, a Super Bike Booster (SBB). Schmiddy gets right to work building it!
The next day, the Buddy Pegs crew finds out that one of the local pups fell off her bike and rolled down a steep hillside! Time for Poppawheelie and Captain Endo to jump into action!
Will Watson’s new Super Bike Booster (SBB) help save Pepper? Will Watson (AKA Captain Endo) finally learn the importance of cleaning and safety checking his bicycle? Be sure to “stick around” so you can find out!
- Taking the time to clean and safety check your bike is just as important as going out and riding it.
- The importance of teamwork.
- Staying calm when you’re in trouble.
Also learn more about Jean Tingley (1925-1991):
"As a creator of kinetic works of art, Jean Tinguely counts among the great pioneering artists of the second half of the twentieth century. At the heart of his work was a preoccupation with the machine. What interested him most was how machines work, how they move, the noises they make and their intrinsic poetry."
Do you and your kids safety check your bikes before each ride? Well there’s no better time to start than today! Before each ride, make sure:
- Handlebars are tight
- Wheels are on tight
- Brakes are working properly
- Tires are inflated
Have a safe ride and help your kids build habits they can carry over into all areas of their lives. Remember, check yourself before you wreck yourself!

We all know kids LOVE to clean up and patiently prepare for big adventures…. Right?
Yeah, don’t worry, our son doesn’t either. We hope this episode lays the foundation for family conversations about what it means to ride a safe bike. Even encouraging kids (oh, and adults) to clean their bikes is a big step towards safe adventures on two wheels. Plus, cleaning and maintaining bikes is another great family activity that keeps everyone present with each other.
I recently had a chance to hear a live presentation by the actor Geena Davis who is on a mission to bring gender diversity to the entertainment world. Her talk was a real eye opener and we immediately realized we too have focused on mostly boy characters in the World of Buddy Pegs.
So you’ll notice now that Pepper has morphed into a female character and is now played by one of our local kids, Claire. If you want to know more about Geena’s work, check out www.seejane.org.
One more thing… Do take a minute to also check out the Jean Tingley creations on our website. We love introducing young groms to amazing creators you may not have heard of before. In fact, I had never heard of him either until our co-writer Bob brought him to our attention. So cool!
