The next big adventure with Nickelodeon’s ever-popular bilingual starlet, Dora and Friends: Into the City!, will premiere on the kids’ channel Monday, August 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The 20 x half-hour series features a slightly aged-up Dora living in the city, attending school and at the center of a community-minded group of pals who have both real-life and magical adventures together. The new series is created by Chris Gifford and Valerie Walsh Valdes (Dora the Explorer, Go, Diego, Go!) and will air regularly weekdays at noon during Nick’s preschool block.

The series premiere, “Doggie Day,” finds Dora shooting a video to help her friend Alana promote the animal shelter’s Doggie Adoption Day. When Dora points the camera at Cusco, on of the shelter dogs, he magically starts singing a song about being separated from his brothers. Dora and her friends team up to reunite Cusco with his family.

Following the series premiere, young fans will be treated to a brand-new episode of top-rated preschool show PAW Patrol at 8:30 p.m. In “Pups and the Pirate Treasure,” Cap’n Turbot accidentally stumbles into a secret cavern that was once a pirate’s hideout. When the PAW Patrol rescues him, they go on a journey to find the missing pieces of a treasure map which leads them to a sunken pirate treasure.
