Nickelodeon USA To Premiere "Pig Goat Banana Cricket" On Saturday 18th July 2015; Unveils Official PGBC Website And Sneak Peeks

Variety is reporting the very exciting news that Nickelodeon USA will start to premiere and show Nickelodeon's brand-new original animated comedy series (NickToon) "Pig Goat Banana Cricket" on Saturday 18th July 2015 at 10:30am ET/PT!

"Pig Goat Banana Cricket" follows four friends nature never intended - a pickle-obsessed Pig, a Goat with musical dreams, a Banana who loves video games and a Cricket with a crazy science lab — in Boopelite City, a gigantic, fantastical metropolis unlike anything you've seen before; where fruit can walk, animals can talk, the sidewalks are crammed with animals, robots and sea creatures, and you can find all your pickle needs at the downtown Picklemart! The quad are roommates in a treehouse, which sits in the middle of the city, surrounded by the forest, seas and everywhere else the foursome could possibly go.

From surviving a fudge-pocalypse to challenging Prince Mermeow in the underwater city of Catlantis, Pig, Goat, Banana and Cricket often find themselves in sticky situations... but wherever these four friends go, they always know where they'll end up: TOGETHER!

Nickelodeon will hold the world premieres of "Pig Goat Banana Cricket" and the networks upcoming brand-new animated comedy series "The Loud House" at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2015 on Saturday 11th July 2015!

Dave Cooper ("Futurama") and Johnny Ryan (Mad magazine, DC Comics) co-created the animated series, which they executive produce with Emmy winner David Sacks ("The Simpsons").

"'Pig Goat Banana Cricket' is deeply rooted in Nickelodeon's tradition of great character-driven storytelling by creators who are the ultimate purveyors of comedy," said Russell Hicks, president of content development and production at Nickelodeon. "Cooper and Ryan's distinct aesthetic vision is rivaled by their comedic sensibility to tell wacky adventures that are definitely out of this world."

Cooper commented, "Our goal is to make the funniest show out there and to make you laugh out loud." Ryan added, "Everything is for the sake of comedy, and 'Pig Goat Banana Cricket' is an original cartoon with heart and friendship powered by wild imagination and energy."

The first episode, titled "Fudge-pocalypse", finds Goat wishing for a bubble made out of fudge. Between Cricket's genius inventing skills and Pig's misguided desire to help, the result is an out-of-control fudge-bubble making machine that engulfs the world in gooey fudge bubbles. The four friends have to brave strange perils and rely on each other to survive the Fudge-pocalypse!

To celebrate, Variety has unveiled a exclusive first-look sneak-peek from the series premiere of PGBC, which you can watch in the online streaming video clip below!

Additionally, has launched the networks official "Pig Goat Banana Cricket" show website,, which features information about Nick's all-new show, character bios for Pig, Goat, Banana and Cricket, a second fantastic sneak-peek of "Pig Goat Banana Cricket" titled "Time to Rock Out!", and a exclusive photo gallery called "Would You Rather...", featuring pictures from some of Pig, Goat, Banana and Cricket's upcoming adventures!
