Get ready for a barking good time! Nick Jr. UK & Ireland will premiere the inventive Mutt & Stuff, Nickelodeon's hit live-action preschool series created by US TV legends Sid and Marty Krofft, and Bradley Zweig, on Saturday 11th January 2020 at 11:30am! Following launch, new episodes will continue to air regularly on Nick Jr. UK & Eire, with same day encores at 3:00pm.

Cesar Millan, Calvin Millan and Stuff, stars of Nickelodeon's live-action preschool series, Mutt & Stuff.

Set in a unique school for Dogs, the series stars Calvin Millan and his Dad, Cesar, star of Cesar 911 and former star of Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan, interacting with a cast of both real Dogs and puppets at a canine school called Mutt & Stuff. In addition to adorable Puppies and unbelievable Dog tricks, the series balances moments of heart and comedy with a social-emotional curriculum that helps preschoolers with identifying and managing emotions, building interpersonal awareness and developing social skills. The show also carries a message of pet adoption and responsible pet care based on Cesar Millan's philosophies.

The series 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.

Many of the most colorful and fondly remembered children's series of the 1970s and 1980s sprang from the imaginations of Sid and Marty Krofft.

For the next two decades, the Kroffts developed several hit shows including The Bugaloo, Lidsville, Sigmund and the Sea Monsters and Land Of The Lost. The Kroffts also found success as producers of popular primetime variety series such as The Donny and Marie Show, The Brady Bunch Variety Hour and the top-rated Barbara Mandrell & the Mandrell Sisters. In 2009, the Kroffts produced a feature film version of their classic TV program Land of the Lost, which was distributed by Universal Pictures. The Kroffts also recently reimagined Sigmund and the Sea Monsters with Amazon Studios. They've also produced a reboot of Electra Woman & Dyna Girl, consisting of a series of eight 11-minute episodes that can also be released as an 88-minute movie, at Legendary Entertainment. The duo also recently produced a reboot pilot of The Bugaloos for Nickelodeon.
