Big Changes to Blog Template & More Upcoming Updates

As you've probably noticed, I've made a few changes to the blog's template tonight. The main change is that everything's a bit bigger and wider. Hopefully the changes will make the blog easier to read, whilst also allowing me to embed bigger video players and images in posts. This blog has also had the same template for at least six years, so I thought it would be nice to make some big changes.


Over the coming days, I hope to make some changes to streamline the labels system. Two prime examples will be merging the 'Nickelodeon UK News' tag into the catch-all 'Nickelodeon News' tag, and the 'Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' tag into the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' tag. The only reason I'm doing this is that Blogger limits the amount of characters used for Labels in each post. I'll also be changing the 'Nick JR Channel UK' label into the correct 'Nick Jr. UK & Ireland' tag. I'll post updates about the changes following their completion.

The main reason why I'm about about the changes is to give everybody the chance to leave feedback about the updates. If you have any comments of suggestions about the changes, please don't hesitate to let me know, either in the comments, or on social media (links in the sidebar). I'm also open to any ideas you may have to improve the blog!

Nickelodeon Greenlights 'Abby Hatcher' Season 2

ACTRA Toronto, the ACTRA (the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists) union that represents performers in the film, radio, television and new media industries in Toronto, Canada has revealed the exciting news that Nickelodeon has renewed the network's new CG-animated preschool series Abby Hatcher for a second season!


Dialogue for Abby Hatcher season two commenced on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, and is expected to continue until Thursday, April 30, 2020.

Created and produced by Spin Master Entertainment (PAW Patrol, Rusty Rivets), Abby Hatcher tells the story of a little girl with a big heart who helps her friends, the amazing and quirky Fuzzly creatures, fix their mishaps, learn from their mistakes and negotiate their emotions. Abby Hatcher (26 episodes) features a social-emotional curriculum highlighting empathy, compassion and problem-solving skills.

In Abby Hatcher, Abby is an eternally optimistic, kind-hearted seven-year-old girl who loves to lend a helping hand to others and accepts everyone--no matter how different they are. In Abby’s world, humans coexist with Fuzzlies, incredible creatures that each have their own unique abilities that make them special, and Abby’s parents’ hotel is home to many. Together with her best Fuzzly friend Bozzly, Abby goes on wild adventures to fix Fuzzly mishaps and help them in any way she can. Whenever a problem arises Abby and Bozzly always say, “Fuzzly trouble can’t delay, to the rescue, save the day!”

Abby Hatcher made its world debut on Nickelodeon in the U.S. on Tuesday, January 1, 2019, and will be rolling out on Nickelodeon’s international channels and branded blocks throughout 2019. The series also airs on TVO and Knowledge in Canada.

Abby Hatcher is the ninth series from Spin Master Entertainment and follows on the success of PAW Patrol. The new series is overseen by executive producers Ronnen Harary and Laura Clunie.

Nickelodeon is currently in the middle of renewing its slate of preschool series. The season two greenlight for Abby Hatcher follows the renewal of PAW Patrol (season seven), Butterbean’s CafĆ© (season two), Bubble Guppies (season five), Corn & Peg (season two), and Rainbow Rangers (season two).
