New 2D animated preschool series features four animal friends who deliver surprises to their neighbors; kids learn gentle life lessons about community, responsibility, and teamwork.
Preschoolers across Canada will be treated to a brand-new 2D animated series from Guru Studio; Pikwik Pack premieres Saturday, December 26 at 9:05 a.m. ET on Treehouse. The series will also be available to stream in Canada live and on demand through STACKTV with Amazon Prime Video Channels. The series follows four adorable animal friends as they work together to deliver magical surprises to the kind citizens of their bustling town.
Suki the brave hedgehog; Axel the go-getter raccoon; Tibor the reliable hippo; and Hazel the silly cat travel together by land, sea, and air to bring packages of joy to their neighbors. Whether it’s a telescope, birthday gift or a snow-cone, young viewers will learn gentle life lessons about the importance of community, responsibility and working as a team to accomplish a common goal.
"After a very successful premiere on Disney Junior U.S., we're now excited for Canadian families to fall in love with the Pikwik Pack,” commented Guru Studio VP of Sales and Business Development, Jonathan Abraham. “It's the perfect time for a show about working together to deliver joy to our communities."
“We’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of Pikwik Pack on Treehouse, which will be a welcome addition to the schedule beginning this holiday season,” added Corus Entertainment Senior Vice President, Broadcast Networks, Daniel Eves. “The heart-warming series delivers fun and engaging stories that demonstrate the importance of friendship, teamwork, and responsibility. With Nelvana serving as the licensing agent for the brand in Canada, we’re delighted to bring this spectacular new property into the Corus ecosystem.”
Pikwik Pack debuted on Disney Junior U.S. in November 2020 with new episodes airing every Saturday morning at 8:30am ET/PT. The series will be rolling out worldwide later next year with broadcasters such as Super RTL (Germany), Canal Panda (Portugal), HOP (Israel), and Minimini+ (Poland), and more.
A full line of figures, vehicles, plush and collectibles is currently being developed by Playmates Toys, and a range of books by Scholastic is set to debut next year.
