Nickelodeon's to Premiere New Animated Preschool Series ABBY HATCHER
Nickelodeon's brand-new animated preschool series, Abby Hatcher (created and produced by Spin Master Entertainment), tells the story of a little girl with a big heart who helps her friends, the amazing and quirky Fuzzly creatures, fix their mishaps, learn from their mistakes and negotiate their emotions. Premiering Tuesday, Jan. 1, at 10 a.m. (ET/PT), in the Nick Jr. preschool block, Abby Hatcher (26 episodes) features a social-emotional curriculum highlighting empathy, compassion and problem-solving skills. Following its U.S. launch, the series will roll out on Nickelodeon's international channels and branded blocks in 2019.
In Abby Hatcher, Abby is an eternally optimistic, kind-hearted seven-year-old girl who loves to lend a helping hand to others and accepts everyone--no matter how different they are. In Abby's world, humans coexist with Fuzzlies, incredible creatures that each have their own unique abilities that make them special, and Abby's parents' hotel is home to many. Together with her best Fuzzly friend Bozzly, Abby goes on wild adventures to fix Fuzzly mishaps and help them in any way she can. Whenever a problem arises Abby and Bozzly always say, "Fuzzly trouble can't delay, to the rescue, save the day!"
In the series premiere of Abby Hatcher, "When Abby Met Bozzly/Hair Flair Everywhere," Abby meets her best Fuzzly friend Bozzly for the first time. Then, when the hotel's salon owner Mrs. Melvin closes the salon for the day, Abby tries to help Harriet, a hair-obsessed Fuzzly, find a new hobby.
Leading up to the Jan. 1, linear series premiere of Abby Hatcher, NickJr.com and the Nick Jr. App will feature new short-form content and an all-new full length episode beginning Monday, Dec. 17. The episode will also be available on Nick Jr. VOD and DTO.
Abby Hatcher is the ninth series from Spin Master Entertainment and follows on the success of PAW Patrol. The new series is overseen by executive producers Ronnen Harary and Laura Clunie.
