NEW YORK, March 26, 2013 – Nickelodeon celebrates spring with a brand-new Peter Rabbit primetime special and the launch of the new animated preschool series, Lalaloopsy, on Friday, March 29. The half-hour Peter Rabbit special will premiere at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT), followed by the series launch of Lalaloopsy at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT). Peter Rabbit airs regularly weekdays at 12 p.m. (ET/PT) and Lalaloopsy will air regularly weekdays at 1:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

Peter Rabbit is a fresh re-imagining of the popular Beatrix Potter children’s books based on Peter Rabbit, which have sold over 250 million copies worldwide and been translated into 35 languages. The series features educational goals that encourage preschoolers to learn problem-solving and interpersonal skills, self-efficacy, resilience, positive re-framing and fostering an interest in and respect for nature. In the Peter Rabbit special, “The Tale of the Start of Spring,” Jemima’s new egg goes missing and only Peter Rabbit is able to put together the clues in order to find the culprit. But can he find the egg before it hatches, or has he finally met his match in the devious newcomer, Samuel Whiskers?

Lalaloopsy is an animated series based on the award-winning, best-selling Lalaloopsy line that celebrates diversity, friendship and teamwork. The series stars the Lalaloopsy rag dolls — Crumbs Sugar Cookie, Mittens Fluff ‘n Stuff, Bea Spells-a-Lot, Rosy Bumps ‘N’ Bruises, Jewel Sparkles, Peanut Big Top, Spot Splatter Splash, and Dot Starlight – who magically came to life when their last stitch was sewn. Each character has their own personality based on the fabrics that were used to make them and a special pet. In the series premiere, “Batter Up!,” Berry Jars ‘n’ Jam tries to break the Lalaloopsy Land record for tallest stack of pancakes built in one day. She initially tries to do it by herself but, soon overwhelmed by the enormity of the task, turns to her Lalaloopsy friends who are happy to help.

At NickJr.com, Nickelodeon’s award-winning website, kids and parents can watch a sneak peek of the Peter Rabbit special and print out Peter Rabbit spring-themed activities including a coloring page and crafts. Beginning in April, preschoolers will be able to play the new online game “Peter Rabbit’s Downhill Dash.” Parents and kids can visit the new Lalaloopsy show page to meet the Lalaloopsy characters and watch exclusive webisodes. Plus, they can print out Lalaloopsy activities including a coloring pack, mazes, and puppets.

Last pup of a dying planet, a young German Shepherd is rocketed to Earth, where he is bombarded by cosmic gamma rays emitted by a radioactive spider. Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu.

Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs.
