The time has come from Brad to spend his very first night in the museum, and he couldn't be more excited. Except, when the lights go out, Brad realizes it's kind of... gulp... scary there at night. Too afraid to stay put in his sleeping bag, there's only one thing left to do... to the Secret Museum! Our heroes travel back in time to meet someone who knew how to face a scary situation: Harry Houdini. Harry wants nothing more than to be a brave performer, just like his hero, tightrope walker Fearless Jean. But, it turns out tightrope walking is scarier than he thought! Good thing Harry has a trick to help himself, and Brad, make it through to the end: when you're scared, take a deep breath to calm down and feel better.
'When you're scared, you can take a deep breath to calm down and feel better.'
I Am Harry Houdini was released on the PBS Kids Video App on November 11, 2019, along with its sister episode, I Am Mary Shelley. Both episodes aired two days later on PBS stations on 9:00 AM EST, and on the 24/7 channel at 7:00 PM EST.
Harry Houdini didn't really have an idol named Fearless Jean.
