In this high-flying, heroic mission, the PAW Patrol are given Mighty Pup powers after a mysterious meteor lands in Adventure Bay.

PAW Patrol: Mighty Pups is produced by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Media Distribution and will be available on DVD on September 11 exclusively at Walmart for the suggested retail price of $17.99.

Additionally, Nickelodeon and Paramount will also be releasing a second PAW Patrol DVD on the same date for $10.99 SRP. The DVD, titled PAW Patrol: Halloween Heroes will contain “seven exciting adventures to get all fans in the spooky-spirit,” including a double-length special!

Update (8/5): Spin Master revealed during their Q2 2018 Financial Results Earnings Call that the PAW Patrol: Mighty Pups DVD will also have a sneak-peek of the theme that will be introduced in PAW Patrol season six! Spin Master also revealed that they are planning more exclusive direct-to-DVD launches in the future, and that they are hard at work on planning for the PAW Patrol movie!

Spin Master also revealed during their 2Q18 earnings call that:

- The new PAW Patrol Ultimate Rescue theme in Season 5 has timed with the delivery of Spin Master's fall product line that features some incredible vehicles. Retailers are particularly excited about Marshall’s ultimate firetruck as the key driver for the holiday season. The delay of the new theme until closer to Spin Master's fall selling season is also part of the reason they increased marketing spend in the first half of 2018. The company did not refresh the theme in spring 2018, choosing to carryover the Sea Patrol theme they introduced in July 2017. They increased marketing in the first half to continue to grow the brand ahead of the new content and theme.

- PAW Patrol took its fifth award last week at the China Licensing Awards, where PAW Patrol won best young property of the year. CCTV is continuing to be a strong partner in airing the PAW Patrol episodes free to air in China, with Season 3 launching this fall. Spin Master is also expanding distribution in China in 2018 to include the Walmart department store and wholesale channels.

- The Rusty Rivets toy line will be launching globally in August 2018 and is tied closely with the building theme prominent in the show.

- Nickelodeon USA is planning to premiere the network's brand-new animated preschool series Abby Hatcher, Fuzzly Catcher during late 2018 - early 2019 (before the end of January 2019)! Spin Master will launch Abby Hatcher, Fuzzly Catcher during Fall 2019.

- It's taken Spin Master and Nickelodeon four years to develop and produce Abby Hatcher, Fuzzly Catcher!


To celebrate the PAW Patrol's brand-new adventure, Spin Master has released a Mighty Pups tie-in toy line exclusively at Walmart. The line includes: PAW Patrol Mighty Pups ‐ Chase′s Flip & Fly, 2‐in‐1 Transforming Vehicle with Launchers; PAW Patrol ‐ Mighty Pups 6‐Pack Gift Set, PAW Patrol Figures with Light‐up Badges and Paws; and the PAW Patrol ‐ 8" Mighty Pups Chase Plush.


PAW Patrol: Mighty Pups is produced by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Media Distribution.
