Could Nickelodeon Be About to Revive 'The Wonder Pets!'?

Could Nickelodeon be about to revive another beloved preschool series?

According to a recent United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) trademark filing made by Paramount Global, the parent company of the Nickelodeon brand, has applied to register Wonder Pets: In The City with the USPTO under several NICE classes, including NICE class "41 - Education, entertainment, sporting and cultural services", which is for Goods & Services pertaining to "entertainment services in the nature of continuing program series, featuring live action, comedy and drama provided through cable television, broadcast television, internet, video-on-demand, and through other forms of transmission media; providing online information in the field of entertainment concerning television programs".

Paramount has also applied to register the title under NICE classes 28 for "Games; toys; sports equipment" and 25 for "Clothing; footwear; headgear".

At the moment, not much information is available about Wonder Pets: In The City, however, Nickelodeon is in the midst of reviving iconic preschool properties, including last year's Face's Music Party and two upcoming Dora the Explorer projects for Paramount+.

Wonder Pets! chronicles the adventures of Linny the Guinea Pig, Ming-Ming Duckling, and Turtle Tuck, three classroom pets who in every episode are called upon to save an animal in trouble. Together the Wonder Pets travel in their “Flyboat” to a new location where they use teamwork to help the animal that needs saving.

Each episode of Wonder Pets is set to an original score, performed and recorded in-house at Little Airplane by a 10-person live orchestra, and most of the characters’ dialogue is sung in operetta. The series guest stars several celebrities, including Steven Tyler, Jerry Stiller, Brooke Shields, Eartha Kitt, Ziggy Marley, and Idina Menzel, among many others.

The show was produced using photo-puppetry, where real animals and props were photographed and then digitally “cute-ified” and animated. Toys for the series were produced by Fisher Price.

Originally running for 62 episodes and two shorts over three seasons between March 2006 and July 2013, the series was created by Josh Selig and produced by Little Airplane Productions and Nickelodeon Animation Studios. The team at Little Airplane received 6 Emmy Awards in music categories for the series.
