Nickelodeon is getting into the Yule Tide spirit with holiday-themed premieres of Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! The Wonder Pets! and The Fairly OddParents during the month of December. In addition, ‘Frosty Fridays’ returns on Dec. 12 with mini-marathons of holiday episodes of Nick favorites every Friday of the month, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! ‘A Great and Grumpy Holiday/The Super-Special Gift’ debuts on Dec. 5 at 1:30 p.m. (ET/PT), Wubbzy and his friends go up to Mt. Zubba Bubba to get a Christmas tree for Wuzzleburg Square and are chased off the property by Old Man Grumpus. Wubbzy sets out to soften Grumpus’ heart by decorating the perfect tree to surprise him. In the second story, Wubbzy wants to thank Daizy for her help decorating the Wubb Club by getting her a super-special Christmas gift, but is stymied when she asks for a rainbow. He journeys to the North Pole to see if Santa Claus can help him and on the way he helps out the Abominable Snowman and a Baby Penguin.
On Monday, Dec. 8 at 8 p.m., The Wonder Pets! ‘Save the Nutcracker!’ will put a contemporary spin on Tchaikovsky’s holiday classic. Directed by Emmy Award winner Jennifer Oxley, the special takes place on Christmas Eve as the Mouse King emerges from a picture book and steals the Wonder Pets’ Nutcracker present from the classroom. Linny the Guinea Pig, Turtle Tuck and Ming-Ming Duckling pursue the Mouse King into the book, dancing through a winter wonderland filled with sugar plum fairies and sweet treats to the music of Tchaikovsky’s ‘The Nutcracker Suite.’
The Fairly OddParents ‘Merry Wishmas!’ episode premieres on Friday, Dec. 12 at 8 p.m. When Timmy wishes that every kid could get one magical coupon for the most-wanted Christmas gift they didn’t get, Cosmo and Wanda turn into magic mailmen and deliver “wish coupons” to every kid in Dimmsdale. Suddenly “Wishmas” explodes into a bigger holiday than Christmas, and an out-of-work Santa moves in with the Turners. Timmy then has to convince Santa to return to the North Pole and start making toys again before Wishmas replaces Christmas forever.
The Frosty Fridays marathons will also include seasonal episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius and the Nick Jr. hits The Backyardigans, Dora the Explorer, Go, Diego, Go!, and Yo Gabba Gabba!
