Digby Dragon Debuts Monday, Jan. 23, on Nick Jr. Channel; Trucktown Launches Thursday, Jan. 12, on NOGGIN

Nick Jr. Channel to Air Second Seasons of Teletubbies, Miffy's Adventures Big and Small and Hey Duggee

NEW YORK-Jan. 10, 2017- Nickelodeon is expanding its top-ranked preschool programming slate with the addition of two brand-new animated series: Digby Dragon, premiering Monday, Jan. 23, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT), on the Nick Jr. channel; and Trucktown launching Thursday, Jan. 12, exclusively in the U.S. on NOGGIN, Nickelodeon's video subscription service for preschoolers. Additionally, the network will air second seasons of three series--Teletubbies, Miffy's Adventures Big and Small and Hey Duggee--for the Nick Jr. channel.

The CG-animated series Digby Dragon (26 half-hour episodes, distributed by Aardman Animations Ltd. and produced by Fizzy Productions Ltd.), airing on Nick Jr. channel, centers on a young dragon named Digby who is learning to fly. Along with his best friends Chips, Fizzy Izzy and Grumpy Goblin, Digby sets off on magical adventures in the colorful and enchanted Applecross Wood. In the series premiere, "Runaway Scottie/Dragon Rock," Digby gets the chance to be a courageous hero when he rescues Archie from a runaway train. Then, Digby and his friends journey to Peek Rock for a special event. In Digby Dragon, preschoolers will learn about friendship, respect for others and teamwork. The series debuted on Nick Jr. in the U.K. in July 2016, and scored the network's best weekday launch ever for a new show.

Trucktown (40 half-hour episodes, produced by Corus Entertainment's Nelvana), airing on NOGGIN, features a world populated by young trucks, and centers on Flat Bed Jack and his friends Dump Truck Dan, Monster Truck Max and others as they roar, romp and rock their way through town. The show, based on a book series by children's author Jon Scieszka (The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales), illustrates that preschoolers can find solutions to any problem through game play and fun.

Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po continue to laugh, learn and play in season two of the new Teletubbies series (30 half-hour episodes, produced by DHX Media), airing on Nick Jr. channel. This season introduces new elements including the brand-new honk-honk Tubby Car and an area of Teletubbyland called the Hidey Hup, a beautiful hidden glade containing equipment for physical Teletubbies fun. Full of exploration, Teletubbies inspires confidence and curiosity in preschoolers, and nurtures childhood development.

Season two of Miffy's Adventures Big and Small (9 half-hour episodes, commissioned by Mercis Media BV and produced by Blue Zoo Productions Ltd. in London), airing on Nick Jr. channel, offers more everyday explorations and adventures of the smart little bunny, Miffy. Based on the award-winning book series by Dutch author-illustrator Dick Bruna, the show features active stories and dialogue, along with emotional experiences relatable to preschoolers.

The second season of Hey Duggee (18 half-hour episodes, produced by Studio AKA for BBC Worldwide), airing on Nick Jr. channel, continues to follow the loveable dog Duggee as he leads The Squirrel Club, a place where kids can take part in activities, learn new skills and earn badges along the way. The series helps teach preschoolers about responsibility, teamwork and how to make good choices.
