Nicktoons Scandinavia To Host Nordic Premiere Of "Pig Goat Banana Cricket"

Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) has announced the exciting news that Nicktoons Scandinavia will host the Nordic premiere of Nickelodeon's brand-new original animated comedy series (Nicktoon) Pig Goat Banana Cricket when the channel launches on Wednesday 1st February 2017!

Locally titled Pig Goat Bana Cricket in Denmark (Danmark) and Pig, Goat, Bana och Cricket in Sweden (Sverige), 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!

Pig Goat Banana Cricket is created by Dave Cooper and Johnny Ryan, established comic artists who worked on several issues of Nickelodeon Magazine, and executive produced by David Sacks (The Simpsons, Regular Show) who co-writes with J. Ryan. Dave Cooper also art directs the series. The pilot was directed by independent animator Nick Cross. The Latin American Spanish dub of the series was recorded in Mexico.
