Featurette: Voice Stars Cluck about Disney Junior’s ‘Chicken Squad’

Disney Junior’s poultry-powered animated comedy-adventure The Chicken Squad is ready for its cock-a-doodle-debut this Friday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m. EDT/PDT. As previously revealed, the new series based on Doreen Cronin’s popular picture books will hatch with two back-to-back episodes, introducing families to the young chicken sibling stars Coop, Sweetie and Little Boo. Together with their canine mentor, Captain Tully, the chicks set out on problem-solving adventures in their backyard to help their animal friends.

Ahead of the eggciting event, Disney Junior has shared a new featurette with Animag, featuring voice cast members Yvette Nicole Brown (Captain Tully), Melissa Rauch (mom Dinah), Golden Globe winner Jane Lynch (Dr. Dirt), Tony Hale (Frazz) and exec producer Tom Rogers discussing the show’s delightful farmyard characters.

“Captain Tully is a retired search and rescue dog. She kinda just helps them learn the ropes to make sure they’re ready for the new adventure that episode … It means a lot to me to be voicing Captain Tully because she is a strong, female mentor.”
Yvette Nicole Brown (Community, Elena of Avalor)


“Dinah is the Chicken Squad’s loving mother, and I just love how much she loves her chicky-poos!”
Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory, Batman and Harley Quinn)


“Dr. Dirt is a scientist. She loves teaching the chicklets all about science — and how science can be so helpful, and it opens up a whole new world for them.”
Jane Lynch (Glee, Wreck-It Ralph)

The voice cast also features leads Ramone Hamilton (Coop), Gabriella Graves (Sweetie) and Maxwell Simkins (Little Boo); recurring guests Sean Giambrone, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Melissa Villaseño and Zack Pearlman; and S1 guest voices Rachel Bloom and Chrissie Fit.

The Chicken Squad was developed and is executive produced by Emmy Award winner Tom Rogers (Elena of Avalor). Humanitas Prize and Emmy Award winner Rachel Ruderman (Sofia the First) is co-producer and story editor; Tony Trujillo (FarmVille 2) is art director; and Emmy Award-nominated Elliot M. Bour (Elena of Avalor) and Scott Bern (Puppy Dog Pals) are supervising directors. The series is produced by Wild Canary in association with Disney Junior.
