They're gonna make the world a better place.

Corn & Peg is a Nelvana cartoon that airs on Nick Jr. in the United States and Treehouse TV in Canada. A sneak peek of it aired on February 22, 2019, and officially premiered on March 4th.

It involves a unicorn and pegasus named Corn and Peg, respectively, who seek to help others and make the world a better place in their community of Galloping Grove by doing good deeds.

Not to be confused with Peg + Cat.


Corn & Peg provides do-goodery examples of:

  • Alliterative Name: The town they live at is called Galloping Grove.
  • An Aesop: Every episode has one, but a series-wide lesson would be that doing good feels good.
  • Big "WHAT?!": Corn and Peg tend to shout this when shocked or excited about something.
  • Blush Sticker: Corn and Peg both have permanent ones on their cheeks.
  • Catchphrase: Corn and Peg’s "Do-gooders, unite!", as well as their Secret Handshake.
  • Cheated Angle: All the characters are only shown at a 3/4 angle.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Corn has blue hair and eyes.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Corn is a unicorn while Peg is a pegasus.

  • Show Within a Show: Corn and Peg's favorite TV show, presumably named Captain Thunderhoof.
  • The Something Song: "The Do Good Song", which Corn and Peg sing every episode when they accept their tasks.
  • Strictly Formula: Most episodes follow this pattern: Corn and Peg are going about their business, then something goes wrong or they get a job to do. They sing their "Do Good" song and proceed to do so. After failing on the first few tries, they eventually learn the episode's moral and use such to complete their mission.
  • Unicorn: Corn, obviously.
  • Wingdinglish: Any place that would have text written out is replaced with random symbols.

"I am a do-gooder, that's guaranteed.
Whenever I can, I do a good deed!"

How well does it match the trope?
