Amazon’s award-winning animated preschool series Creative Galaxy is planning an out-of-this-world Valentine’s Day special for young viewers, complete with a constellation of guest stars. Premiering Tuesday, February 7 on Prime Video in the US, the season 2 special features the voices of The Daily Show correspondents Samantha Bee and Jason Jones as Arty’s parents, and Lisa Loeb as “Melody.”
In the episode, Epiphany (voiced by Kira Gelineau of Dear Viola) plans to show her love with a special performance on Groovopolis in honor of Heart Day — but accidentally ruins her costume right before the show. Epiphany and Arty (Meesha Contreras) take off into the Creative Galaxy for a solution, helping friends along the way and learning that everyone has their own way of saying “I heart you!”
Creative Galaxy is produced by Out of the Blue Enterprises and animated by 9 Story Entertainment. Angela C. Santomero (Blue’s Clues, Super Why!, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood) is Creator and Executive Producer, with Samantha Freeman as Executive Producer. The series received the 2015 Parents’ Choice Gold Award for Television (Ages 3-5).
Along with the special, Amazon and Kahootz have collaborated on a new activity set for kids so they can have their own creative adventures. Arty’s Tool Belt includes an adjustable belt, coloring pad, doodle pad, paint with water pads, sticker book, crayons, thin paint brush and flat paint brush.
