Ken Jeong Makes His Debut on ‘The Casagrandes’ in Halloween Episode Sneak Peek | Nickelodeon

Nickelodeon is getting into the Halloween spirit with an all-new episode of the network's brand-new animated series, The Casagrandes! Titled “New Haunts,” the spooky story will be airing on Saturday, October 19th at 11:30 AM (ET/PT). In this adventure, Ronnie Anne (Izabella Alvarez) forgoes a family Halloween tradition for a “cool” party but learns “cool” doesn’t always mean “fun.” Helping her in that realization is best friend Sid (Leah Mei Gold) and a surprising new addition to the cast of characters: Ken Jeong's debut as Sid’s dad, Stanley.

To celebrate Jeong’s arrival on the show, Collider has unveiled an awesome clip from “New Haunts” to share with us today ahead of Saturday’s episode. Jeong was most recently heard in the blockbuster Nickelodeon Movie Wonder Park, and seen his Netflix comedy standup special Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho, the hit film Crazy Rich Asians, and the hit Fox celebrity singing competition The Masked Singer. He is currently working on the CBS pilot, The Emperor of Malibu, and is also set to begin production on the Warner Bros. animated Scooby-Doo film, Scoob.

As for Jeong’s Casagrandes character, Stanley is Sid’s dad and is a conductor on the Great Lakes Area Rapid Transit (GLART) train, which passes by the Casagrandes’ building. He is friendly and patient, likes to cheer up train commuters with fun facts over the intercom, and does Tai Chi when he gets stressed out. Emotionally, he breaks down more than the train does, but he keeps it together long enough to get into the Halloween spirit.

Check out the fang-tastic clip from the Halloween episode below, featuring Jeong’s character debut:
