The stars of DHX Media and FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment’s vibrant animated preschool series Kate & Mim-Mim are getting ready for their most magical adventure yet. Featuring the voice of actress and model Cat Deeley (So You Think You Can Dance), a brand-new primetime special “Kate in Oz” that puts a new twist on the classic Baum tales will premiere on Disney Junior on Monday, November 14 at 8 p.m.
In “Kate in Oz,” a scary thunderstorm is keeping Kate awake, so she tries to twirl away to Mimiloo. But she and her intrepid stuffed bunny sidekick Mim-Mim unexpectedly end up in Oz instead! The best friends soon learn that their twirl magic was stolen by Violet the Witch (voiced by Deeley), who is determined to keep all the purple in Oz for herself. To get their magic back and return home, Kate and Mim-Mim must find the Wizard of Oz and ask for his help.
Created by Scott and Julie Stewart (and inspired by their very own Kate), Kate & Mim-Mim is a colorful CG series centered on a 5-year old girl and her special friend: a purple toy bunny named Mim-Mim. With the power of Kate’s big imagination, the two friends are transported to the fun-filled world of Mimiloo, where the little toy bunny transforms into a larger-than-life playmate ready for another exciting adventure.
