NEW YORK–Oct. 22, 2018– Preschoolers will be whisked away on magical culinary adventures in Nickelodeon’s brand-new CG-animated series, Butterbean’s Café, premiering Monday, Nov. 12, at 1 p.m. (ET/PT), in the Nick Jr. preschool block. The series (40 episodes), which centers on a fairy named Butterbean and her adventures running her neighborhood café and bakery, will feature guest voice appearances by top celebrity chefs and culinary experts: Richard Blais (Top Chef, Guy’s Grocery Games), Alton Brown (Good Eats, Iron Chef America), Carla Hall (The Chew, Top Chef), Padma Lakshmi (Top Chef), Giada De Laurentiis (Giada at Home), and Rachael Ray (The Rachael Ray Show). Created by Robert Scull and Jonny Belt (Bubble Guppies), Butterbean’s Café showcases creative cooking and features a curriculum with social-emotional lessons that highlight kindness and gratitude, and leadership skills. Following its U.S. launch, Butterbean’s Café will roll out on Nickelodeon’s international channels and branded blocks throughout 2019.
In the series, Butterbean, her fairy friends–Dazzle, Poppy and Jasper–and her little sister Cricket take pride in serving up healthy snacks and sweet treats to the residents in their community of Puddlebrook. Butterbean’s special magic beans, the fairies’ enchanted kitchen tools and the team’s can-do spirit all combine to make their cafe the most awesome eatery in town.
In Butterbean’s Café’s series premiere, “The Grand Opening!,” Butterbean and her friends work together to make the opening of the café a success, while competing café owner Ms. Marmalady attempts to throw them off track.
Leading up to the linear series premiere of Butterbean’s Café, an all-new full-length episode and short-form content are available now on NickJr.com and the Nick Jr. App.
