There’s always a big adventure in Nickelodeon’s brand-new animated preschool series, Rusty Rivets, premiering on Nick Jr. Australia and New Zealand on Monday 13th March 2017 at 8.30am (AU) and 5:00pm (NZ)! Following the shows debut, Rusty Rivets will air daily at 8.30am (AU) and 5:00pm (NZ).
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 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.
