Learning about math — and classical music — is much more fun when cute cartoons are leading the lessons. That’s the idea behind Peg + Cat, a new preschool series premiering next week on PBS. In every episode, curious Peg and her feline sidekick solve problems using math and logic. Get a taste of the pair in action in this clip from an upcoming episode, which finds Peg and Cat lending a hand (or paw, as the case may be) to none other than Ludwig van Beethoven, who just can’t seem to come up with an idea for his next symphony.

The countdown starts now: Peg + Cat premieres Monday, Oct. 7 on PBS Kids. (Check local listings here.)
