"Dora's Fantastic Gymnastics Adventure" Premieres at 7:00 PM Followed by "Team Umizoomi: The Umi Games," at 7:30 PM

Heidi Klum to Appear in New Team Umizoomi Spot about Math Debuting Aug. 19

NEW YORK, Aug. 1, 2012 - Nickelodeon continues to celebrate a sports-filled summer with new primetime specials of preschool favorites Dora the Explorer and Team Umizoomi on Monday, Aug. 13. First, Dora gets the chance to perform a special ribbon dance in "Dora's Fantastic Gymnastics Adventure," at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT). Then, the mighty miniature math superheroes, Team Umizoomi, go for the gold in "Team Umizoomi: The Umi Games," at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

Additionally, a new spot featuring Heidi Klum and Team Umizoomi will premiere Sunday, Aug. 19 on Nick Jr. In the spot, the heel of Klum's shoe is not even with the other and Umi Team member Milli uses her measuring tape ponytails to add inches to it, illustrating the series' message that math can be used to solve everyday problems.

In "Dora's Fantastic Gymnastics Adventure," Dora and Boots are practicing for the Fantastic Gymnastics Show when Dora gets a special delivery - a beautiful rainbow ribbon. This means that Dora gets to start the show with her ribbon dance! But Swiper comes in and swipes the ribbon and the show can't start until Dora gets it back. Dora and Boots set out on an adventure to find the ribbon so she can perform her special routine.

In "Team Umizoomi: The Umi Games," Team Umizoomi are getting ready to play in the biggest sports event around - The Umi Games! The Umi Team will have to go up against the strong, fast, and very agile Sports Robots in four different sports - soccer, swimming, basketball and biking. Milli, Geo and Bot will use their Mighty Math Powers, including counting and identifying shapes, in order to outsmart the robot athletes and win the trophy.

At NickJr.com, Nickelodeon's award-winning website for parents and preschoolers, sports fans of all ages can play the new Umizoomi Bike Race Game and Dora Gymnastics Game. Kids can make a rainbow ribbon craft and printable gymnastics medals. Plus, parents can upload videos of their kids' fantastic gymnastics moves for a chance to see them online and TV during the on-air event.
