Just after Thanksgiving, Disney Junior will be getting in the winter holiday spirit with new, special episodes of international preschool favorites Bluey and Gigantosaurus.
Premiering Saturday, November 30, Bluey “Verandah Santa” takes place during Christmas, and Bluey is very focused on being extra good to get more presents. But when a game of Verandah Santa leaves cousin Socks upset, Bluey must learn the virtue of kindness.
Bluey follows the adventures of a lovable and inexhaustible 6-year-old Blue Heeler puppy who lives with her Dad (Bandit), her Mum (Chilli) and 4-year-old little sis, Bingo. In each episode, Bluey takes the everyday events of family life and uses her limitless Blue Heeler energy to invent elaborate games that unfold in unpredictable and hilarious ways, bringing her family and the whole neighborhood into her world of fun.
On Saturday, December 7, young fans will celebrate “The Shortest Day” with the Gigantosaurus gang! On the shortest day of the year, Tiny throws a huge party to lift everyone’s spirits. She promises to decorate a big tree in the Frozen Land, have lots of food, and give gifts to everyone. But what happens when all the decorations, food and presents fall into a crevasse? Can the dinosaurs still have fun without it all? On this day when night comes the earliest, Tiny and the others learn they already have everything they need – each other.
Gigantosaurus invites the youngest of viewers along on the prehistoric adventures of four curious young dinosaur friends, Rocky, Bill, Tiny and Mazu, as they explore the mystery of “Gigantosaurus” – the biggest, fiercest dinosaur of all. Every imagination-inspiring episode follows the group on a quest, as they face their individual fears and work together to solve a problem. As the inquisitive Mazu, playful Tiny, timid Bill, and courageous Rocky aim to learn more about Gigantosaurus, they discover they each have something to learn from him, too!
