Nickelodeon Launches CG-Animated Series Mike the Knight
Wednesday, Feb. 8 - “Mike the Knight and the Smiley Treasure”/ “Mike the Knight and Evie’s Birthday Present”
Mike thinks he’ll be better at guarding a bunch of bananas without his dragons’ help. When the bananas go missing one by one, Mike learns that everything is easier when you accept a little help from your friends. / Mike thinks the perfect birthday surprise for Evie is a knightly cake – but, trying to keep the surprise isn’t as easy as he thought.
Thursday, Feb. 9 - “Mike the Knight and the Fluttering Favor”/ “Mike the Knight and the Tricky Trail”
Mike and Evie compete to win the Queen’s favor. They try to outdo each other with doing good deeds for the Blacksmith, but end up just ruining things for him. It turns out that working together is a much better way to win. / Mike is so keen to show off his tracking skills that he rushes ahead impetuously and, scoffing at the trail Sparkie thinks he’s found, gets everyone lost. Mike has to learn that a big part of tracking is being slow and careful.
Preschoolers and their parents can visit the brand-new Mike the Knight page on www.nickjr.com, Nickelodeon's award-winning website, to watch Mike the Knight videos, print coloring pages, and find games and activities just right for Mike the Knight fans.
