Summer is heating up for young Nickelodeon fans as second seasons of Gwen Stefani’s hit toon Kuu Kuu Harajuku and Teletubbies head to the Nick Jr. channel this month. New Harajuku episodes will begin Friday, July 7 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT, with Teletubbies following Monday, July 17 at 2 p.m.
Co-created and executive produced by Stefani, Kuu Kuu Harajuku follows the adventures of the band HJ5 — Love, Angel, Music, Baby and G — through their super-cute world of music, fashion and style. Facing higher stakes and crazier falls in season 2, HJ5 are no longer a band struggling to make the scene. They are part of the scene and the competition is fierce. HJ5 will discover that maintaining success is more difficult than finding success, while their manager, Rudie, continues to mess up important situations.
In the season premiere “Training Day/Multi Tasking,” HJ5 is booked to perform a concert on the Trans Harajuku Express but they are missing one thing — tickets. They give the concert for the ages, playing and dancing in and on various modes of transportation, as they try to keep up with the speeding train. Then, Rudie accidentally double-books the band. Rather than cancel one of the gigs, G wants them to play both gigs at once. New episodes will rollout every Friday at 7:30 p.m.
Produced by DHX Media, the updated Teletubbies continues to reflect children’s real life experiences as the four iconic characters forge meaningful bonds with their tiny friends, the Tiddlytubbies. The series introduces all-new elements, including the honk-honk Tubby Car and an area of Teletubbyland called the Hidey Hup, a beautiful hidden glade containing equipment for physical Teletubby fun.
The season two Tubby premiere “Close the Gate/Trailer,” the Teletubbies accidentally leave the Tiddlytubbies’ gate open and search for missing Mi-Mi, RuRu and Baa. Then, they discover an extra special trailer on the Tubby Custard Ride. Teletubbies will air regularly weekdays at 2 p.m. through August.
