Trivia

  • Denali is a place in Alaska, which is where the main setting of the show is set at. Denali is also typically pronounced as "Den-al-ee”. However, because the main character is named Molly, in the show’s title’s case, it is pronounced as "duh-nal-ee” in order to make it rhyme with Molly’s name (As Molly of "den-al-ee" does not rhyme).
  • In the logo, the "M” in Molly is shaped like a mountain, probably to further describe her life in Alaska (as Alaska has mountains).
  • Common Sense Media gave the show a 5/5 and a Common Sense Seal.[2]
  • At one point, the show would've been about Molly traveling the world with her parents on a boat instead of setting it in Alaska.
  • In 2020, it won a Peabody Award.
