Pedro's Pan


Pan is not just any kind of a pan, he is a gold pan. But after numerous failures of finding gold, Pan begins to doubt that he is good at his job and worries about letting down his friend Pedro. No matter how hard he tries, Pan can't seem to find the gold.

Be a part of the sometimes humorous adventures of Pedro and Pan as they search for gold and purpose in the wilderness of Alaska.
