NO JOB IS TOO BIG, NO PUP IS TOO SMALL FOR NICK JR.’S PAW PATROL
New CG animated, pre-school series Paw Patrol launches on Nick Jr. on Monday 4th November at 4:00pm
London 2nd October 2013 – Get ready for a new breed of hero, as Nickelodeon introduces Paw Patrol. Formed by six fearless pups led by one boy, they are ready and raring to take on any challenge and save the day. The CG animated, pre-school series bursts onto Nick Jr. with plenty of fun and adventure on Monday 4th November at 4:00pm.
Paw Patrol stars a pack of six heroic rescue pups – Chase, Marshall, Rocky, Rubble, Zuma and Skye - who are led by a tech-savvy 10-year-old boy named Ryder. Together they work hard to protect the Adventure Bay community. Each pup has a unique skill set and a house that turns into a vehicle specific to their personality. Chase is an athletic police pup, Marshall is a spirited fire truck pup, Rocky is an enthusiastic recycling pup, Rubble is a gruff, but loveable construction digger pup, Zuma is a playful, water-loving pup and Skye is a fearless, smart helicopter pup. Ryder has rescued all six pups and leads them on their missions.
The series features a curriculum that focuses on teamwork and problem-solving. Paw Patrol, a co-production with Spin Master Entertainment, will air regularly on weekdays at 4:00pm on Nick Jr.
In the Paw Patrol series premiere, “Pups and the Kitty-tastrophe/Pups Save a Train,” Ryder and the Paw Patrol rescue a lost kitty from the bay, but who will save them from all the mayhem she causes? Then, Ryder, Rubble, Rocky and Chase must help free Katie and Cali’s train from a rockslide.
The series will be supported online at nickjr.co.uk/pawpatrol, where viewers can download creative, bespoke activities and watch Paw Patrol clips. The site will also feature a ‘Friends’ section where users can get to know the Paw Patrol pups.
