Need something cartoony and cuddly to look forward to? The ZhuZhus animated series is returning to Disney Channel for a super-cute New Year’s celebration! New adventures featuring Frankie and her pets Pipsqueak, Num Nums, Chunk and Mr. Squiggles will premiere every Saturday and Sunday at 9:30 a.m. from January 7 to 29.
The fuzzy fun begins Sat., Jan. 7 with “Zhu Years Eve” — in which Frankie and the Zhus plan a New Year’s party for the history books, as long as Frankie can stay awake — and “Lookies for Cookies,” in which Squiggles misplaces the family cookie jar in a treasure hunt gone wrong.
Further premieres throughout the month will be “Storming the Cat Castle/Ha Ha Hamsters” (Jan. 8), “Fur-Vivor/Zhuper Girl” (Jan. 14), “Wingin’ It/Friendship Friend-zy” (Jan. 15), “Dreams O’Clock/Badge to the Bone” (Jan. 21), “Full Groan/The Shell Game” (Jan. 22), “If Wishes Were Rainbows/Deja Zhu” (Jan. 28) and “A Total Bust a Move/The Grand ZhuZhu Pets Hotel” (Jan. 29).
Produced by Nelvana and inspired by the ZhuZhu Pets toy phenomenon that took off in 2009, The ZhuZhus delights young fans with the hijinks of a curious bunch of fun-seeking furry adventurers who live with their human friend Frankie in Anytown. With their distinctive coloring, undeniable charm, and fur-raising escapades, the ZhuZhus certainly prove they are no ordinary pets – they’re extraordinary!
