Saban Brands’ latest animated preschool series Julius Jr. will debut on Nick Jr. on Sunday September 29 at 11 a.m. Inspired by Paul Frank’s popular family of characters, the 2D show follows the adventures of a young version of Julius the monkey, Julius Jr. The series will mark the first television series for the Paul Frank franchise. The characters mix a blend of imagination and inventive spirit to help each other overcome challenges big and small—teaching kids that the best inventions are the ones that help your friends.
“Julius the monkey is an internationally recognized and beloved character, thanks to the success of the Paul Frank brand around the world,” said Elie Dekel, president of Saban Brands. “Julius Jr. and his friends will not only captivate preschoolers, but also inspire kids to use their imagination and creativity in everyday life.”
The newly launched website, www.nickjr.com/julius-jr offers parents and kids music videos, downloadable materials and curriculum-based activities including coloring sheets and activity blue prints, for kids to use and moms to enjoy.
