Nickelodeon U.S. will premiere a brand-new animated preschool series about two mythical pony pals titled Corn & Peg on Monday, March 4 at 12:30 p.m. ET/PT. The 20-episode series is produced by Canadian studio Nelvana, and centers on a lovable unicorn named Corn and a plucky pegasus named Peg, who share an unbridled enthusiasm for doing good deeds.
The series features a social-emotional curriculum that highlights empathy and kindness, and a school-readiness curriculum emphasizing colors, math, directions and health and wellness. The U.S. premiere will be followed by an international rollout across Nickelodeon channels and branded blocks around the world through 2019.
Corn & Peg’s inseparable stars are inspired by their favorite superhero, Captain Thunderhoof — champion of all do-gooders — to make a difference and help the residents in their colorful equine community of Galloping Grove. Together, Corn and Peg are the dynamic duo of doing good, always putting others before themselves and believing that doing good feels good.
In the series premiere, “Deputy Do Gooders/Horseplay,” when Sheriff Swiftstone makes Corn and Peg deputies, they get distracted from their traffic duties and cause a huge jam. Then, while Captain Thunderhoof is busy stopping a boulder from rolling toward Farmer Shire’s farm, Corn and Peg must help with a rescue.
