Bubble and Squeak is an original UK show from Nick Jr. It joins Bubble the wizard and Squeak the frog as they present stories, songs and magical cookery fun for preschoolers!
From their home in a giant carrot rocket with their friends Matilda the magical book and Muffet the spider, Bubble and Squeak create "foody magic" every day by whisking up delicious healthy treats.
Whenever there is a problem, Bubble tries to help with one of his "trusty" magic spells, but they always end up going wrong! Instead, it's down to Matilda to tell a story to inspire a solution.
Bubble stirs up his magic cauldron to produce a recipe featuring today's magic ingredient - which could be anything from tomato to carrots or honey - and Squeak takes us to visit some children and find out some fascinating facts about the ingredient of the day.
After singing their favourite sing-along song, "The Magic of Food" Bubble and Squeak wash their hands and prepare the recipe, which could be anything from Pizza Clowns to See In The Dark Soup or Bumble Bee Flapjacks. Matilda takes them through the recipe in easy-to-follow stages that everyone can understand.
Once it's finished, it's time to clean up and tuck in. The dish of the day is scrumptious! But has it helped solve their problem? You'll have to wait and see....!
With behind-the-scenes nutritional advice from Fiona Hamilton-Fairley of the Kids' Cookery School in London and lots of magical special effects, Bubble and Squeak make healthy food fun for little ones!
