Nicktoons UK To Debut New Animated Series "Sanjay and Craig" On Monday 4th November 2013 November 2013

The online British and Irish TV guide website Digiguide, via NickUKHub, is reporting the aweslime Nickelodeon UK News that Nick UK's animation and action channel, Nicktoons UK and Ireland, will start to premiere and show Nickelodeon's brand new original animated series (Nicktoon) "Sanjay and Craig", from Monday 4th November 2013 at 4:30pm as part of "November 2013 on Nicktoons UK"! Repeats of each episode will be shown later the same day at 6:30pm.

It is currently unannounced whether Nicktoons UK will then debut each all-new episode of "Sanjay and Craig" daily or weekly, or if Nicktoons will be holding a special Premiere Week programming stunt to introduce the show.

The first episodes of "Sanjay and Craig" that Nicktoons UK will air will be "Brett Venom MD" and "Laugh Quake".

The first two episodes will be followed by a brand new episode of the popular Nickelodeon Original Animated Series (Nicktoon) "The Fairly OddParents" (episode to be announced).

"Sanjay and Craig" follows the adventures of Sanjay, an excitable and irreverent 12-year-old boy (Maulik Pancholy, "30 Rock") and Craig, a smooth-talking snake and master of disguise (Chris Hardwick, "Nerdist", "The Talking Dead"). Together, they embark on epic kid-inspired quests that are at times totally ridiculous, absolutely gross and weirdly sweet. From perfecting the ultimate bike skid, tightroping across a pool of garbage on a dare or Craig manipulating a contest to win his best buddy one hundred dogs, their routine hijinks often cross into the land of the fantastical and the absurd. Only Sanjay and his closest friends can hear Craig's warped words of wisdom. The only thing that stands in their way is their unhinged, snake-phobic neighbor, Mr. Noodman (Tony Hale, "Veep", "Arrested Development"), who's always on the verge of figuring out that Craig can talk.

"Sanjay & Craig" is a brand-new, creator-driven animated series that blends a comedic and stylistic sensibility with a distinctive mix of unusual, wonderful and random humor. The series features the additional voice talents of Linda Cardellini ("Mad Men", "Freaks and Geeks") as Megan; Matt Jones ("Breaking Bad") as Hector; Kunal Nayyar ("The Big Bang Theory") as Vijay; Grey DeLisle ("The Fairly OddParents") as Darlene and Sandy Dickson; and "Remington Tufflips" as himself.

"Sanjay and Craig" is created and co-executive produced by first-generation Nickelodeon viewers Jim Dirschberger, Jay Howell and Andreas Trolf, who were influenced by the cartoons from their childhoods to create content for today's post-millennial kids. These first-time creators were paired with award-winning writers and producers Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi ("The Adventures of Pete & Pete", "Alvin and the Chipmunks") to develop this original animated series.

Nickelodeon recently renewed "Sanjay and Craig" for a 20-episode second season.
