Pancake Mountain is a children's television show based in Washington, D.C.

The show is hosted by a goat puppet named Rufus Leaking, the superhero Captain Perfect and his slightly more sensible foil Garnett who serve as interviewers and dance-party impresarios. Interviews have included George Clinton, Juliette Lewis, and Chuck Leavell among others. During an interview with CNN correspondent Heidi Collins, Scott Stuckey had this to say about the origin of the name for the show: "[...] Musician friend, Brendan Canty, had written a song called "Pancake Mountain" and knew I was doing the show, and thought that it would be a good song for the show. And when I listened to it, I was like a name—this—we should name the show that. It was just an amazing song. And so the song kind of came first, then the name." The majority of the show is filmed in Washington DC and Arlington, Virginia, but the crew has been known to be fond of road trips and appear at such music festivals as SXSW, Bonaroo, Lollapalooza and the Virgin Fest.
