Nickelodeon to Air ‘Gabby’s Dollhouse’

The live-action / animated hybrid preschool series from DreamWorks Animation debuts May 1 on Nick Jr.

Nickelodeon is all set to welcome preschoolers into the magical world of Gabby’s Dollhouse, with the linear debut of the hit mixed-media series from DreamWorks Animation coming on Monday, May 1, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nick Jr. The hybrid live-action / animated series follows the adventures of Gabby as she unboxes a brand-new surprise in every episode before jumping into a fantastical world full of adorable cat characters that live inside her magical dollhouse. Following the premiere, new episodes from the first season will continue to roll out Monday through Thursday for three consecutive weeks.

In the debut episode, “Spaceship,” the dollhouse delivery is a spaceship that takes off with a sleeping CatRat inside. Gabby, Pandy and Kitty Fairy have to get the ship back into The Fairy Tail Garden before Floyd - who thinks it's the best kitty toy ever - gets his paws on it! Created and executive produced by Traci Paige Johnson (Blue's Clues, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood) and Jennifer Twomey (Blue's Clues, Team Umizoomi), the series helps to teach kids to revel in their mistakes, fail fantastically and always keep a curious mind.

The series stars Laila Lockhart Kraner (Black-ish), as Gabby and features the voice talents of Tucker Chandler (I Lost My Body) as Pandy Paws; Tara Strong (The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle) as Kitty Fairy and Mama Box Cat; Donovan Patton (Blues Clues) as CatRat; Juliet Donenfeld (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power) as Cakey Cat; Maggie Lowe (We Bare Bears) as Baby Box Cat; Secunda Wood (Fast & Furious: Spy Racers) as MerCat; Sainty Nelsen (Trolls: The Beat Goes On!) as Pillow Cat; Eduardo Franco (Stranger Things) as DJ Catnip; and Carla Tassara (Carmen San Diego, Elena of Avalor), as Carlita. 

Gabby’s Dollhouse has become one of the fastest growing brands in the preschool space, inspiring an award-winning toy line, publishing, home, apparel, and more, as well as original music, a top-rated app and a growing YouTube channel visited by millions of fans weekly. Additionally, the series continues to lend itself to global fan experiences including Universal theme park activations and live events.
