Nickelodeon Australia & New Zealand Debuts "ToonMarty"

Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand today started to premiere and show the brand-new animated comedy series ToonMarty every Monday to Thursday at 4:30pm in Australia and weekdays at 5:30am (the following morning) in New Zealand!



In the middle of Toonville, where all cartoons live, sits the ToonMart, where all cartoons hang out. As the Number One (read "only") employee there, Marty believes his job is to stick his nose in everyone else's business... And there’s no business Marty likes better than somebody else's business, except maybe show business! With every bend, bounce, flip and spin, Marty makes a great big cartoony adventure out of everything, and includes everyone in his Marty Party! Joining Marty in Toonville are Bernie and Hollie, Burnatron, Super Simon, Chef and Chicken, Hobo Jim, Suki, Griselda, Punchy McKnuckle, Carly, Lenny, Dr. Smarty Pants, and Jack.


Below is a list of currently announced brand-new Toon Marty episodes which Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand will premiere in July 2017:

Tuesday 4th July 2017 - Awful Waffle: Marty of the ToonMart can't help sticking his nose into everyone's business and making a big cartoony adventure out of everything. With each bounce, flip and spin, everyone is included in his Marty party.

Monday 10th July 2017 - When There's Smoke There's Marty: Marty's overworked cartoon exit-smoke trail leaves in a huff, leaving him without energy. He borrows Burnie's smoke trail to compete for the Employee of the Month award. Will his dreams go up in smoke?
