Beginning July 6 www.playhousedisney.com will feature all of ZeFronk’s recipes, which are simple creations that kids and their parents or caregivers can make together at home. Kids are also invited to craft personalized recipe books.
This season ZeFronk, a French Dachshund who hosts a cooking show from his doghouse, will highlight his favorite nutritious recipes from around the world, including China, England, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Thailand and his native France. The week will conclude with a new health-themed episode of the Emmy Award-winning series “Imagination Movers” on SATURDAY, JULY 24 (10:00 a.m., ET/PT).
Zefronk gives viewers a taste of recipes including Ze Chinese Chicken Salad, Ze English Tea Sandwiches, Ze German Potato Pancake, Ze Greek Treat, Ze Indian Mango Lassi, Ze Italian Caprese Kabobs, Ze Jamaican Coconut Banana Wheels, Ze Mexican Quesadilla, Ze Thai Watermelon Slush and Ze French Mini Quiche.
ZeFronk whips up healthy snacks with the help of his assistant, a bird named Sue, and is often driven to distraction by his sneaky neighbor cat, Dom, who will stop at nothing to get a bite of one of ZeFronk’s tasty snacks.
In the “Imagination Movers” episode entitled “Give Me Strength,” the Movers help a circus strongman, Gunther the Great, regain his powers through a series of muscle-building exercises, weightlifting contests and — most importantly – eating healthy.
“Imagination Movers” stars the popular New Orleans band of the same name – Rich Collins, Scott Durbin, Dave Poche and Scott “Smitty” Smith – and introduces preschoolers to the Movers’ energetic rock and roll style of music while emphasizing creative problem solving skills. The Emmy Award-winning series features the blue-
suited band as everyday guy brain-stormers working hard to solve “idea emergencies” in their Idea Warehouse, a place of infinite inspiration. Each 30-minute episode features five songs presented in music video style performances.
All Playhouse Disney series carry a TV-Y parental guideline.
