Nickelodeon Set To Open 12th International Store In Dubai In 2016

Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products (NVCP) today, Tuesday 13th October 2015, announced the very exciting news that a 3,200-square-foot Nickelodeon Store is set to open in Dubai in 2016, upping the total number of Nick retail shops worldwide to an even dozen!

Based in the Dubai Mall, which forms part of a US$20-billion downtown complex, the new Nickelodeon Store will be part of a retail landscape comprised of more than 1,200 shops.

The Dubai location, part of Nickelodeon's ongoing relationship with Entertainment Retail Enterprises (ERE), is the second store to launch in the Middle East, following the opening of Riyadh in Saudi Arabia in August 2013. Its regional retail ambitions coincide with Viacom International Media Networks's (VIMN) debut of three 24-hour channels in the Middle East — Nickelodeon HD, Nick Jr. and MTV Live - through pay-TV network OSN, which launched earlier this year.

In line with its 11 other locations, which include Panama, Honduras, Chile, Columbia and Costa Rica in Latin America and their UK flagship store in London's prestigious Leicester Square, the first in Europe, the Nickelodeon Dubai store will offer kids and families the opportunity to experience and interact with Nickelodeon's hit properties including "SpongeBob SquarePants", "Dora the Explorer", "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "Paw Patrol".

"Opening a store in one of the world’s biggest international centers is an incredibly exciting next step for Nickelodeon to continue to work together with world-class partner ERE, to further our collective mission to create engaging and enjoyable experiences around the world," said Ron Johnson, Executive Vice President (EVP), NVCP.

Nickelodeon and Viacom Consumer Products and ERE have also confirmed plans to open more Nickelodeon-branded stores in 2016.

NEW YORK – Oct. 13, 2015 – Sid and Marty Krofft's most beloved characters from their cult classic H.R.

"H.R. Pufnstuf was the first TV show my brother and I created, so it has always held a special place in our hearts," said Marty Krofft. "Our fans constantly ask us to bring back Pufnstuf, and we feel the vibrant world of Mutt & Stuff is the perfect setting to revitalize these colorful characters and build excitement for new fans."

In "H.R. Pufnstuf Comes to Mutt & Stuff!," Stuff's favorite uncle H.R. Pufnstuf decides to visit him at the canine school. When H.R. Pufnstuf arrives with his friends from Living Island, Stuff goes overboard in an attempt to impress him and make sure everything is perfect.

Set in a unique school for dogs, Mutt & Stuff stars Calvin Millan and his dad, Cesar, star of Cesar 911 and original star of Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan, interacting with a cast of both real dogs and puppets.
Mutt & Stuff currently ranks as the number-one preschool show in its time period on all TV and the series is created and executive produced by the Kroffts (H.R. Pufnstuf, Land Of The Lost), along with Bradley Zweig. Cesar Millan also serves as executive producer. Mutt & Stuff airs regularly weekdays at 10 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

"H.R. Pufnstuf's wildly imaginative characters made an indelible impression on an entire generation, and now preschoolers and parents will get to see the two fantasy worlds of Sid and Marty Krofft come together on Mutt & Stuff through the same creative storytelling that defines both series," said Russell Hicks, President, Content Development and Production, Nickelodeon Group.

"It has been an amazing experience to be a part of Mutt & Stuff with my son Calvin," said Cesar Millan.
"The show is an amazing platform to educate kids on the responsibilities of being a dog owner and we are excited to be bringing it back for another 20 episodes."

Mutt & Stuff follows Calvin Millan and his best friend Stuff, a larger-than-life dog with a personality to match, as they take preschoolers inside the doors of Mutt & Stuff, a school for dogs, to explore the daily lives of these canine companions. Each episode features incredible tricks, training lessons and high-spirited humor. With the help of 15 playful puppies and charismatic puppets, Calvin educates preschoolers on how to train and guide their dogs, as well as showcase the friendship and loyalty that puppies can provide. The series has a social-emotional curriculum that helps preschoolers identify and manage emotions, build interpersonal awareness and develop social skills. Mutt & Stuff also carries a message of pet adoption and responsible pet care based on Cesar Millan's philosophies.

Nickelodeon, now in its 36th year, is the number-one entertainment brand for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first in everything it does. The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, online, recreation, books and feature films.
