PBS is launching an online cross-country adventure for children starring two brothers — who happen to be gophers.

The Web-only "Wilson & Ditch: Digging America," produced by The Jim Henson Co., follows the furry siblings as they explore America and learn about its culture, history and geography.

In addition to animated "webisodes," the Public Broadcasting Service's social studies project, announced Sunday, will include original video, interactive games and blogs, and podcasts.

The site, aimed at children ages 6 to 10, will debut on pbskidsgo.org this fall.
