Highlights on Nickelodeon

The boys are back! There's a seriously cool spring ahead with all-new episodes of number one-rated kids' comedy Drake and Josh on Nickelodeon from Monday 19 March @ 7.30am and 5pm
Attending the same school and sharing a mutual love of rock music is just about all Drake and Josh have in common. That is until the mismatched pair become stepbrothers and roommates and their whole world changes.
Musician and all-round dude Drake Parker and play-by-the-rules boffin Josh Nichols must learn to live in each other's pockets while they grow up, with unexpected, hilarious results. They go to the same school and share a room, but they see everything differently.
While the lads fail to see eye to eye about almost anything, they both get wound up by little sister Megan, who specialises in getting Drake and Josh into even more trouble, whenever she can.
Although natually competitive, Drake and Josh occasionally recognise that their different skills and talents could compliment each other to help solve their problems. But being brothers, asking one another for help can often be the hardest thing to do.
Now in its fourth hit season, Drake and Josh is the most recent recipient of the Favourite TV show trophy at the viewer-voted Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.

Hilarious BAFTA Award winning Purple and Brown are back! A Nickelodeon UK and Aardman Co-Production.
On Saturday 24 & Sunday 25 March 2007 @ 9.30am and Oscar winning Aardman Animations (Flushed Away, Chicken Run and Wallace & Grommit), Nickelodeon's Purple and Brown are a collection of short films starring two side-splitting plasticine characters.
Nickelodeon's Purple and Brown is a UK kids favourite and the critics best. Written and directed by Aardman's Richard Webber Purple and Brown have captured the hearts of kids and parents alike since their debut in January 2006. In November 2006 Purple and Brown scooped the prestigious children's BAFTA for Short Film.
The Saturday and Sunday thirty minute omnibus features all the new short films, including a big green monster, grumpy magicians, an Irish dance troupe, seagulls and even an alien. In their world populated by other equally weird and wonderful plasticine characters, Purple and Brown's innocent curiosity always leads to one or both of them sustaining a considerable degree of injury! Yet nothing seems to wipe the grins of this loveable pair.
Themes from this series of new films feature Purple and Brown joining in with an "Irish jig". "Beardie" in which Purple and Brown have fun with facial hair. "Alien" where the plasticine friends get zapped and the "Face Thief" where the duo are visited by a small blue creature who steals Purple's face!

Brand new Viva Pinata is inspired by the award-winning and critically acclaimed XBox 360 game and is exclusive to Nicktoons, the UK's number-one cartoon channel.
In a garden on Pinata Island, live a dancing, frolicking group of happy pinatas - the traditional colourful sweet-filled containers that are hit with a stick at parties by blindfolded players until the treats fall out.
The inhabitants of Pinata island fill themselves with the most delicious sweets they can find and wait with glee for the day when they reach maximum candy-osity. Only then will they be called to Pinata Central and dispatched to delight fun-lovers at a magical celebration.
Pinatas Fergy Fudgehog, Paulie Pretztail, Franklin Fizzlybear, Tina and Teddington Twingersnap, Les Galagoogoo and Hudson the Horstacio have been friends since childhood. Some of the group are excitedly training for the day when they will be picked, while others are unimpressed by the prospect of being hit with a stick!
All the time, strange new Pinatas arrive in the garden and violent pests (known as Sours) must be confronted. Who can solve the mysteries of the black-market Pinata poachers? And with so much time taken up by dancing and fun, will any of the Pinatas even have time? This is a place where anything can happen.
Viva Pinata is exclusive to NickToons, the official home of the world's favourite animated series, SpongeBob SquarePants.

Highlights on Nick Jr.

The adorable Wonder Pets! are back for a brand new series on Nick Jr. Following last year's launch of the hugely popular preschool show, the singing superheroes return for more outlandish operatic antics and daring baby animal rescues.
By day, Linny the Guinea Pig, Ming-Ming Duckling and Turtle Tuck are unassuming classroom pets. But after home-time bell, the talented trio become a globetrotting force of animal welfare - The Wonder Pets!
When group leader Linny takes a call on the classroom's tin-can phone, it means there's a baby animal in trouble somewhere in the world - it could be a panda stuck up a bamboo tree or a kangaroo lost in the outback. The caped Wonder Pets! then whirl into action, using classroom toys to construct the flying boat that will whisk them off to their next adventure, singing: Linny, Tuck and Ming-Ming - too, we're Wonder Pets and we'll help you!"
No real superhero powers? That's no problem for The Wonder Pets! When faced with a challenge, the cuddly caped creatures club together and sing their mantra: "What's going to work? Teamwork!" The Wonder Pets! show that by working together anybody can overcome a challenge. The adventures encourage problem-solving skills and teamwork as well as appreciation of music and humour.
Each episode of the show is like a mini-operetta, with sung-through dialogue and an original score by some of Broadway's top composers. Wonder Pets! is created using groundbreaking photo-puppetry animation, which brings photographs of real animals to life and gives the series its unique look and appeal.
Join in the singing adventures with The Wonder Pets! every day from Monday 5 March & 6.30pm on Nick Jr.
You can catch more adventures over on Nick Jr 2 every day @ 9am and 1pm

Starting with the very first episode of the Trumptonshire trilogy, Camberwick Green introduces Nick Jr viewers to the classic children's characters Windy Miller. PC McGarry and Mrs Honeyman.
Beginning with the line "Here is a box, a musical box, wound up and ready to play. But this box can hide a secret inside. Can you guess what is in it today? Each episode's star character appears from the box and the story begins.
Every visit to Trumpton begins with a view of a clock face and the words "Here is the clock, the Trumpton clock. Telling the time steadily, sensibly, never too quickly, never too slowly. Telling the time for Trumpton."
The colourful characters who live in Trumpton include Mrs Clamp the flower seller, Mr Clamp the greengrocer, the carpenter Chippy Minton and of course fire chief Captain Flack and his ever-ready Trumpton Fire Brigade: Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grubb!
