Nick Jr. USA Debuts 'HobbyKids Adventures' on NickJr.com

Nick Jr. USA, Nickelodeon's top-rated network for preschoolers, has debuted HobbyKids Adventures, a brand-new animated series created by Butch Hartman (Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom, T.U.F.F. Puppy, Bunsen Is a Beast), online at nickjr.com! The series is produced by Pocket.watch, the kids media brand that celebrates the new digital stars, franchises and formats that kids love today.


Inspired by the massively popular YouTube channel HobbyKidsTV, HobbyKids Adventures follows the antics of three brothers who fly, bounce, zip and zoom their way through hilarious escapades! With HobbyPig’s leadership, HobbyFrog’s brains and HobbyBear’s cuteness, the HobbyKids use fun, food and amazing inventions to triumph over arch enemies, “the Slobby Kids,” and make the world a better place!

Meet the Characters!:


HobbyPig (left) - The oldest. The leader. The boss and the guy who calls the shots! HobbyPig is never serious. His main goal is to not only get things done but to look super cool while doing so. A total daredevil with no fear, he’s the first one to leap into whatever fray the HobbyKids find themselves in!

HobbyBear (center) - The cute one. The youngest, HobbyBear is super-mischievous and always getting into trouble! He’s so cute and adorable the he can get out of trouble simply by turning on his big, green, “puppy dog eyes.” But watch out when his eyes turn red…!

HobbyFrog (right) - Always bouncing off the walls (hey, he’s a frog!) “Cowabunga” is his middle name! He’s a super-curious inventor and an expert at putting unlikely items together to assemble anything the team needs to help them in their adventures!


HobbyMom & HobbyDad - The Hobbykids’ parental units! Fun-loving and always supportive, HobbyMom and HobbyDad are the wind beneath the kids’ wings. The HobbyKids love doing things on their own, but when things get too big to handle, HobbyMom and HobbyDad are right there!


The SlobbyKids - SlobbyRat, SlobbySkunk, and SlobbySnake are the SlobbyKids! The polar opposite to the HobbyKids, you can count on these guys to find a way to try and ruin the day! You can often see them traveling around in the Street Beater, a vehicle made from junk slapped together from the dumpster!

Online at nickjr.com, kids and parents can find out more about the show and watch the first two full episodes.


HobbyKids Adventures made its world debut on the HobbyKidsTV YouTube network on Saturday, June 22, 2019. Following the series premiere, Pocket.watch is now launching a HobbyKids Adventures consumer products line, which will comprise toys, apparel, bedding, room décor, pajamas, backpacks, and more. Products will be created alongside licensing companies Just Play, The Bentex Group, Franco Manufacturing, and Bio World, and will be distributed exclusively at Walmart (where Ryan launched his brand). To fete the series premiere, Pocket.watch hosted an eight-week experiential tour at 24 Walmart parking lots across the U.S., including Hobbykids Adventures viewing parties and meet-and-greets with the whole family.

HobbyKids Adventures will also be promoted through partnerships with fast food chains Carl’s Jr. and Hardees. In August, the restaurants will launch HobbyKids Adventures-branded children’s meals in 3,800 restaurants nationwide.

The tentpole HobbyKidsTV channel launched in 2013 and has subsequently become one of the biggest kid-friendly destinations on YouTube, with 3.5 million subscribers and over 6.2 billion lifetime views.

The news follows Pocket.watch producing Ryan’s Mystery Playdate, starring Ryan from Ryan ToysReview, for Nickelodeon, which, since launch, has become the number-one preschool show on all TV.
