NEW YORK—Oct. 10, 2017— Nickelodeon takes adventure to new heights in the brand-new CG-animated preschool series Top Wing (26 episodes), premiering Monday, Nov. 6, at 12:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

Top Wing follows four best friend rescue birds–Swift, Penny, Rod and Brody–who are training to earn their wings at the Top Wing Academy on Big Swirl Island. With the help of their mentor Speedy, and unique turbo-charged vehicles and high-tech gadgets, the cadets are assigned different missions to sharpen their rescue skills and help those in need while learning valuable lessons along the way.

  • Penny – A curious penguin and undersea expert who is always up for a challenge in her super submarine.
  • Rod – An energetic and funny rooster who is ready to fly across the island on his all-terrain vehicle.
  • Brody – A laid-back puffin who loves to fly across, over and on the waves in turbo-charged vehicle.
Leading up to the linear series premiere of Top Wing, an all-new full-length episode and short-form content are available now on NickJr.com and the Nick Jr. App.
