Nick Jr. USA To Premiere "Digby Dragon" On Monday 23rd January 2017

Nick Jr. USA, Nickelodeon USA's top-performing preschool channel, will start to premiere and show Digby Dragon, a brand new CG-animated preschool series based on original work from Sally Hunter (Humphrey's Corner), on Monday 23rd January 2017 at 7:00pm ET/PT!

Set in the colourful and enchanted Applecross Wood, the series follows Digby, a young dragon learning to fly. Digby and his best friends Chips, the scatter-brained squirrel, fairy Fizzy Izzy and Grumpy Goblin take on magical adventures meeting friends from Applecross Wood along the way.

In the premiere episode "Runaway Scottie," when Mungo accidently starts up Scottie with Archie on board, Digby realises that he has the chance to be a hero. Saving Scottie and Archie is far harder than he imagined! Then, in "Dragon Rock," when Digby tells his friends that they need to go to Peek Rock to see a special event, Grizel and Mungo decide they have to get there first!

To celebrate the premiere of Digby Dragon, has launched Nick Jr. USA's official Digby Dragon show website, which features information about Nick Jr.'s all-new animated preschool series and three fantastic sneak-peek previews, including a first-look at the shows theme song!

Commissioned by Nickelodeon UK and produced entirely by Blue-Zoo Productions at its central London studio, the CGI show promises to be the latest in a long line of hits from the studio behind Olive the Ostrich, Tree Fu Tom, Q pootle 5 and Alphablocks. The series has been funded through an Enterprise Investment Scheme along with presales and advances.

The series launched on Monday 4th July 2016 at 4:30pm on Nick Jr. UK and Ireland, and became the channels most watched weekday launch for a brand-new show, ever.

Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products (NVCP) will represent Consumer Products for the property in the UK and Ireland, with Aardman Animations representing the property's international TV, DVD and digital sales.

The series has also been acquired by Nick Jr. Australia And New Zealand and Nick Jr. Latinoamérica, and will also air on ZDF/KiKa in Germany and S4C in Wales.
