Nick Jr. USA has announced the exciting news in a post on their official Facebook profile page, Facebook.com/NickJr, that, following a short delay, Nickelodeon USA will start to premiere and show the networks brand-new animated preschool series, Rusty Rivets, in November 2016!
There's always a big adventure in Nickelodeon's brand-new animated preschool series, Rusty Rivets! Created and produced by Spin Master Entertainment (PAW Patrol), the show follows Rusty, a 21st century kid hero who always saves the day by relying on his imagination and incredible resourcefulness. Inspired by the DIY culture of the maker movement, Rusty Rivets (26 half-hour episodes) helps preschoolers gain confidence and fuel their creativity with a strong focus on inventing, creating and problem solving.
In Rusty Rivets, 10-year-old Rusty, along with his best bud Ruby, invents his way out of every jam by repurposing spare parts and found objects into the wildest, coolest, most awesome contraptions ever. The series encourages kids to use their imaginations to design and create fun new gadgets and inventions.
In the series premiere, "Rusty's Rex Rescue"/"Rusty's Park N' Fly," Rusty's friend Liam gets trapped on top of a tall stack of junk in Rusty's Recycling Yard. To rescue Liam, Rusty and Ruby design a Jurassic robot who ultimately becomes their new trusty friend Botasaur. In the next adventure, Rusty and his friends must bring Mr. Higgins' remote control plane down safely when it can't land. Together, they must engineer a daredevil rescue to save the plane.
Online at NickJr.com, parents and children can discover a selection of Rusty Rivets video clips, and play two brand-new online games inspired by the show: "Penguin Problem," in which players run through the Recycling Yard collecting escaped Penguins and building creative tools to transport them safely back home; and "Combine it and Design it," which offers players four different machine models that they can design and build with Rusty.
Spin Master will release a line of Rusty Rivets toys that will focus on exactly what Rusty does in the show – "Design it and combine it." Families can look forward to bringing Rusty home in Fall 2017, when products will be available at leading retailers.
Following the shows US debut, Nickelodeon will roll the all-new series on Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. channels and programming blocks globally from February 2017.
Rusty Rivets is the sixth series from Spin Master Entertainment and follows on the success of PAW Patrol and Bakugan Battle Brawlers. The new series is overseen by executive producers Ronnen Harary and Laura Clunie.
