Nick Jr.’s hit preschool series The Backyardigans will show young viewers a swashbuckling good time with ‘Pirate Camp,’ a new half-hour special premiering Monday, June 9 at 9 a.m. (ET/PT). Kicking off a week of pirate-themed programs, the special will be followed at 10 a.m. by the premiere of a new episode of The Wonder Pets! titled ‘Save the Pirate Parrot!’ Other sea-faring offerings lined up for the week of June 9-13 include scurvy episodes of Dora the Explorer, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! and Max & Ruby.
In ‘Pirate Camp,’ Uniqua wants to be a pirate so bad she convinces a fearful Pablo to join her at Camp Walk-A-Planka. Under the tutelage of the great pirate captain Austin, the campers learn about ‘pirattitude’ and dance the scalawag to a Garage Band soundtrack. When Austin is captured by pirate captain Red Boots, a fearsome ghost played by Tasha, it’s up to the pirate campers to help set him free.
Beginning June 2, Nick Jr. Video on Nickjr.com will begin streaming clips from ‘Pirate Camp,’ as well as instant replays of both ‘Pirate Camp’ and ‘Save the Pirate Parrot!’ In addition, a two-minute sneak peek from ‘Pirate Camp’ and pirate-themed clips from Nick Jr. shows will be available on wireless carriers.
