NickToons UK To Premiere Brand New Episodes Of "Grizzly Tales" In October 2012!

Nickelodeon UK has announced the Nickelodeon UK News that, to celebrate the spookiest and scariest month of the year and Halloween, Nickelodeon UK is planning to premiere and show seven spooky brand new episodes of the popular animated series "Grizzly Tales" (also known as "Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids"), including the brand new "Grizzly Tales" episodes "Frank Einstein's Monster", "Nails in Her Coffin", "The Undertaker", and "The Little Flower Girl", on Nickelodeon UK and Ireland's animation channel, Nicktoons UK and Ireland, in October 2012, as part of NickToons UK's Autumn/Winter 2012 highlights, which are guaranteed scare even the naughtiest children into submission!

The successful multi-award winning animated series "Grizzly Tales" is based on the hit children's books written by the English children's author Jamie Rix ("Not Going Out", "The Revenge Files of Alistair Fury") and is narrated by Nigel Planer ("The Magic Roundabout", "The Young Ones", "Hairspray") and is animated by Sara and Simon Bor of "Wolves Witches & Giants" fame. The series is a collection of morality tales which also has insinuations of a horror story; gruesome punishments happen throughout. The stories mainly focus on naughty or horrible (for example vain, untidy or lying children) children learning a grim lesson. Originally commissioned by Carlton Television (now part of ITV plc.) and a co-production between Elephant Productions and Honeycomb Animation, the original six series (seasons) ran from 2000 to 2006 on ITV1. Nickelodeon UK announced in 2009 that they would be reinventing "Grizzly Tales" for today's audience, and started to premiere new "Grizzly Tales" episodes in 2011. Nickelodeon UK also acquired the broadcast rights to the show's original 79 episodes and started to show them in 2010. Airing this October, The Night Night Porter of the Hot-Hell Darkness hotel (who is also the half-brother of Uncle Grizzly, the original presenter of "Grizzly Tales" who ran the Squeam Screen cinema who presented the show with his pet spider called Spindleshanks) will be taking over the NickToons schedule with all-new episodes of the "Broadcast Awards 2012" winning "Grizzly Tales" which are sure to grab young imaginations with tales of how misbehaving children get their comeuppance! "Grizzly Tales" is produced by Grizzly TV.

The brand new episode of "Grizzly Tales" called "Frank Einstein's Monster" follows firework freak Frank Einstein, who is given the chance to light the biggest firework on Bonfire Night if he can build the best Guy in the village.

In the brand new episode of "Grizzly Tales" called "Nails in Her Coffin", a vicious girl who admires the power and cruelty of cats, grows her nails and slashes her way to power.

In the brand new episode of "Grizzly Tales" titled "The Undertaker", Gulab Gobby loves the sound of his own voice, so much so that he becomes the youngest politician in history. However, when he falls foul of The Speaker by shouting her down, she assigns The Undertaker to take care of him.

The brand new episode of "Grizzly Tales" called "The Little Flower Girl" sees Petal wish for people to love her and for strangers to gasp when she comes into a room. However, it is a wish that may land her in trouble with a judicial doll.
