T.U.F.F. PUPPY – Series Premiere
Premieres: Wednesday, January 5 at 6 p.m. ET
The action-packed T.U.F.F. Puppy centers around Dudley Puppy (voiced by iCarly’s Jerry Trainor), a gung-ho, dim-witted dog who finds himself accidentally thrust into the role of secret agent when he’s recruited by the super-secret, crime-fighting organization, T.U.F.F. (Turbo Undercover Fighting Force). Puppy partners with Kitty Katswell, a feline superspy who is a skilled kung fu and weapons expert. Naturally, they don’t get along – but together they protect their hometown of Petropolis and the rest of the world against the evil animal organization, D.O.O.M. (Diabolical Order of Mayhem). This Nick original animated series is created and executive produced by Butch Hartman, creator of the Emmy®-winning series The Fairly OddParents and Danny Phantom.
PLANET SHEEN – Series Premiere
Premieres: Friday, January 7 at 6 p.m. ET
Planet Sheen follows the intergalactic adventures of Sheen Guevera Estevez, the hyperactive kid from Nick’s popular television series The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius. Sheen finds himself stranded after he accidentally “borrows” a rocket and crash lands on planet Zeenu, a world of limited technology that is inhabited by not-too-bright creatures and ruled by an Emperor who becomes fascinated with Sheen. The series follows Sheen as he deals with Zeenu’s bizarre customs and creatures, including the jealous villain Dorkus. In every episode, Sheen makes it his mission to teach the superior ways of Earth and bring Zeenu into the 21st century – though he possesses no skills to do so. Created by Steve Oedekerk, creator of Nick’s hit film franchises Jimmy Neutron and Barnyard as well as Keith Alcorn (The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius).
