This Boxing Day, preschoolers across Canada will “unwrap” a brand-new world of surprise and adventure when Pikwik Pack premieres Saturday, December 26th 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! Pikwik Pack 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, along with 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 even 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”, said Jonathan Abraham, VP of Sales and Business Development at Guru Studio. “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. The heart-warming series delivers fun and engaging stories that demonstrate the importance of friendship, teamwork, and responsibility,” said Daniel Eves, Senior Vice President, Broadcast Networks, Corus Entertainment. “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.
