What do fractions have to do with pizza? The stars of the Emmy Award-winning animated series Peg + Cat serve up a delicious new episode. It's lunchtime at Peg's Pizza Place Peg and Cat are excited to take their first order -- from the Teens -- only to learn that some of their customers want a whole pizza while one of them wants half a pie. How can Peg and Cat make half a pie when they don't know what half is? Luckily, Ramone and Mac are there to help, with a slice up the middle of the pizza. As more customers come in, things get entertaining, with Peg singing a jazzy song and Cat doing a dance. But soon there's another problem: four orders, but only two and a half pizzas left. Peg is totally freaking out -- until Cat reminds her that when it comes to halves and wholes, it's all in how you slice it.
