Nick Jr. UK To Premiere Brand-New "Peppa Pig" Halloween Special "Pumpkin Party" On Monday 26th October 2015

Entertainment One has announced the oink-tastic news that Nick Jr. UK and Ireland, Nickelodeon UK's top-performing preschool channel, will premiere the brand-new Peppa Pig Halloween special, titled "Pumpkin Party", on Monday 26th October 2015!

Produced by Astley Baker Davies, the all-new episode will be Peppa Pig's first Halloween special!

To coincide with the broadcast debut of the "Pumpkin Party" episode, eOne has collaborated with selected partners to develop a brand-new Halloween themed collection of Peppa Pig apparel, publishing and home entertainment products poised to launch at retail this October.

In the apparel category, Blues Clothing has developed an extensive line of Halloween themed daywear for Tesco, Sainsburys and Morrisons and Misirli will launch a pyjama set exclusively at Tesco. Cooneen will debut a line of kids' pyjamas at Sainsburys, and Roy Lowe is on board for a range of Halloween themed socks.

In the publishing category, Penguin will launch a story book "Peppa's Pumpkin Party" and a Peppa Halloween sticker activity book while the brand's magazine partner, Redan will produce a special Halloween themed issue of "Fun to Learn Peppa Pig" magazine on Thursday 15th October 2015.

Entertainment One will also release a "Peppa Pig Pumpkin Party" DVD on Tuesday 6th October 2015 which will include the brand new Halloween episode.

Hannah Mungo, head of UK licensing at Entertainment One, said: “Our seasonal Peppa Pig ranges perform consistently well at retail and the launch of the new Halloween episode makes this the perfect time to introduce Peppa merchandise to the Halloween season.

"We have secured a strong line-up of retail partners for these new products and we look forward to seeing them at retail this Autumn."

Additionally, eOne Licensing will be hosting Peppa Pig storytelling sessions at the Children's Bath Literary Festival in the UK on Saturday 3rd October 2015, in partnership with master publishing partner Ladybird Books.

Activities will include costume character meet and greets and narration of the Ladybird book The Big Tale of Little Peppa to coincide with the digital marketing activity for the brand's Imagine with Peppa theme.

The Bath Festival of Children's Literature is the largest dedicated children’s book festival in the UK and is staged in association with headline media partner, The Telegraph, and retail partner Waterstone's.

The event was created to enthuse children with a passion for reading and ties in with eOne's Imagine with Peppa marketing campaign which aims to highlight the importance of fun and imaginative play in a child's early years development.

eOne has developed Peppa Pig branded resources which will be available to download from to give parents inspiration for creative storytelling and role play.

In addition to digital marketing activity, eOne will also be partnering with Tumble Tots for a Peppa Once Upon a Time themed campaign throughout its physical play centres nationwide during The National Children's Activity Week. Broadcasters Nick Jr. UK and Ireland and Channel Five will also support with on-air activity.

"What better way to kick start our Imagine with Peppa marketing initiative than at the UK's biggest children’s book festival," said Rebecca Harvey, head of marketing at eOne Licensing.

"We're committed to harnessing the popularity of Peppa Pig to highlight important issues, and the festival is a great opportunity for us to connect with families and demonstrate the benefits of imaginative play on the development of young children."

The Bullard High School Key Club in Texas will partner with Key Club International and Nickelodeon to host a Nickelodeon Worldwide Day of Play event on Saturday 19th September 2015 at O.L. Ferrell Park, located in downtown Bullard!

"We had a great turnout for the Day of Play last year," said Jennifer Dorsey, sponsor of the BHS Key Club. "It was a good feeling to see many families attend the event, play the various games, and have fun as a family. We had gorgeous weather, a lot of fun, and hope for the same this year."

Approximately 50 children from Bullard and their families attended the fun-filled event last year. The BHS Key Club and Builder's Club facilitated the day's activities, which included activities such as baseball, sack races, kickball, hippity-hop races, limbo, a giant parachute, Frisbee, Red-Rover, and face painting.

This summer, Nickelodeon celebrated kids' love of play by holding "Road to Worldwide Day of Play" events in cities across the USA. The initiative will culminate with Nickelodeon's annual "Worldwide Day of Play" event on Saturday 26th September 2015, when the network will suspend programming from 10:30am - 2:00pm CDT in order to encourage kids to get up, get out and get active.

Whilst off-air, Nickelodeon will showcase the organizations holding Days of Play, and their locations, encouraging parents and children to play outside.

"So many people," said Dorsey, "including adults, have couch potato lifestyles. No one wants their child to become unhealthy. The Worldwide Day of Play is a great opportunity to get kids away from the television and video games, and to just go outside and play like a kid."

Attendees are asked to provide a picnic lunch for their respective families, as well as bring water and sunscreen for throughout the day.

For more information about Nickelodeon Worldwide Day of Play, contact Dorsey at (903) 894-3272 or visit!
