For over 40 years iconic Manitoban children's performer Fred Penner has been using his engaging music and public speaking skills to help children make sense of the world. Best known for his long running television series “Fred Penner's Place” and hit song "The Cat Came Back", he still performs today only now it's often to children-of-all ages. Through interviews with Fred's family, friends and career collaborators we gain an unprecedented insight into Fred's key role in the growth of the children's performer movement that exploded during the early 1980s. We meet the adult followers of Fred Penner and discover how he has impacted their lives. And we go behind the scenes to spend time with the man himself.
