Nickelodeon Renames 'Hamsterdale' As 'Hamsters of Hamsterdale'

The upcoming animated series Hamsterdale has been given a new name: Hamsters of Hamsterdale! Corus Entertainment Inc., whose Nelvana production company is co-producing the new preschool series with Nickelodeon, revealed the news during their Q3 2022 earnings call with investors.

Originally announced during Nickelodeon Upfront 2021 under the working title The Hamster ShowHamsters of Hamsterdale is a new creator-driven 2D-animated series that will help fuel Nickelodeon's ever-expanding content slate.

In Hamsters of Hamsterdale, "8-year-old Harry is the proud owner of a crew of hamsters and the builder of their detailed and expansive tubed home. Little does Harry know that his furry friends are constantly watching him, believing that Harry is their King and they are his heroic protectors. Together, the hamsters explore their kingdom, comedically misunderstanding the human world and braving 'royal missions,' such as saving King Harry from daily doom, granting his wishes and keeping his life running smoothly." The series is being made for a preschool audience.

“[Zokie of Planet Ruby and Hamsters of Hamsterdale] are great additions to Nickelodeon’s growing slate of new content because friendship, humor and relatable characters are at the core,” said Ramsey Naito, President, Nickelodeon Animation. “The series creators, Brian Morante and Zach Smith, have a history of bringing unique stories to life at Nickelodeon and we can’t wait to dive in with our production partners at Nelvana on these originals.”

“Nelvana is excited to build upon our partnership with Nickelodeon and contribute to their massive animation pipeline with new IP for a global audience,” Pam Westman, President, Nelvana. “With lovable characters and hilarious storylines, [Zokie of Planet Ruby and Hamsterdale] are two titles that we look forward to adding to our production slate.”

Zokie of Planet Ruby and Hamsters of Hamsterdale are taking their place alongside other series from Nickelodeon’s animated content pipeline--the largest in its history to ever be produced.
