Nick Jr.'s will "sneak peek" its newest preschool show, WOW! WOW! WUBBZY!, across several media platforms, beginning Tuesday, June 20, 2006. The 26-episode series premieres on Nick Jr. on Aug. 28.
Never-before-seen music videos and character segments from WOW! WOW! WUBBZY! will launch simultaneously every Tuesday, June 20-Aug. 22, on wireless carriers, Nick Jr. Video, Nick Jr.'s broadband video service available on Nickjr.com, on-air on Nick Jr. and on "The Wubbcast," the first video podcast of preschooler programming. Ten music videos and character segments will premiere over the course of the 11-week pre-launch period.
WOW! WOW! WUBBZY!, created by Bob Boyle, stars a curious little guy named Wubbzy and his two pals, Widget and Walden, who live in the mythical city of Wuzzleburg. Wubbzy wants to have fun and spend his time chasing flutterflys, eating ice cream and playing hippity-hopscotch. When he runs into everyday kid problems, he calls on his friends for help and advice. Widget is a mechanical whiz with a fix-it shop and is always ready to lend a hand. She loves to build something big and complicated, but her inventions don't always work. Walden is a quirky scientist who finds great wisdom in everything from ancient philosophy to tarot card reading. His brainy approach doesn't always produce practical results.
Each half-hour episode of WOW! WOW! WUBBZY! features two, 10-minute adventures with Wubbzy, Widget and Walden. The themes of the day are reinforced through a direct-to-camera segment where the characters address the preschoolers at home, followed by an original music video.
WOW! WOW! WUBBZY! is a Bolder Media for Boys and Girls production in association with IDT/Film Roman. Susan Miller of Bolder Media, Inc. and Mixed Media Group and Fred Seibert of Bolder Media Inc. and Frederator Studios, are also exec producers.
