Zack & Quack Pops-Up on Nick Jr. This February
London, Wednesday 15th January 2013 – Leap into an immersive pop-up world where imagination and creativity rule in new series, Zack & Quack. The CG animated, pre-school series will bring paper pop-up to life on the small screen on Friday 7th February at 4:30pm on Nick Jr.
Zack & Quack is set in a fantastical pop-up book and follows the adventures of an inventive boy named Zack and his best friend, a young duck called Quack. There are surprises abound, as pulling pop-ups triggers unexpected wonders and causes exciting new worlds to literally unfold before their eyes. Resourceful friend and neighbour, Kira, joins the dazzling duo on each adventure and is on hand to fix any paper problem with her expert pop-up tool kit.
Zack and Quack meet plenty of quirky friends along the way including a wise frog called Belly Up, Skip and Hop - a pair of acrobatic squirrel sisters, and an ever cautious hedgehog called Fluffy. Together with their friends, Zack and Quack soon discover that anything’s possible with the power of pop up. The Nickelodeon and Zodiak Rights co-production has a unique visual style which re-imagines the pop-up book format for television. New episodes will air every Friday at 4:30pm on Nick Jr. Viewers can also visit nickjr.co.uk/zackandquack for more fun and games.
In the premiere episode “Pop-Up Speedway,” Zack and his friends build a pop-up race car and Zack wants to prove it's a winner on the greatest raceway ever. Zack and Quack will have to use all of their pop-up “engine-uity” to show that their homemade hot-rod is just as good as the other cars.
