If you’re a Peter Rabbit fan I have some fun news to share! Nickelodeon is bringing one the literary icon Peter Rabbit to life with the debut of a brand-new CG-animated preschool series, Peter Rabbit , on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 12 p.m. (ET/PT). The series is a fresh take on the popular Beatrix Potter children’s books based on Peter Rabbit. This well loved series has sold over 250 million copies worldwide and has been loved across several generations. I can remember listening to Peter Rabbit stories when I was growing up.
The series follows Peter, a mischievous, charming and brave rabbit who overcomes obstacles, outwits predators and avoids danger. Clever, resilient and funny, Peter Rabbit wants to grow up to be just like his late father and carries his journal (a guide to everything you to need to know to be a good rabbit) on his fun and exciting adventures with his best friends Benjamin Bunny and Lily Bobtail. Set in Potter’s treasured Lake District, Peter lives in a world where behind every rock there is a surprise to discover and where dangers (be it a sly fox or bad-tempered badger) lurk around every corner.
The series premiere episode will feature the following stories:
“The Tale of the Radish Robber” – Peter and his friends try to find the perfect place to eat the radishes they took from Mr. McGregor’s garden, but little do they know they’ve got a radish robber on their tails!
“The Tale of Two Enemies” – When Peter decides to set Mr. Tod and Tommy Brock against each other, he soon finds out that breaking the food chain is harder than it looks.
I can’t wait until the premiere!
