An awesome August is on its way to Nickelodeon! Tune in for all-new series Gasp and Charlie & Lola, as well as brand spanking new episodes of The Mighty B!, Fanboy & Chum Chum and The Penguins of Madagascar! All new this month, only on Nick!




Gasp – New show – Weekends starting Saturday 7th August @ 7:45am

Gasp is a great new show about a little fish with a big heart and even bigger emotions. He sees the world from a kid’s point of view and thinks like a kid because, let’s face it, when you’re little you shouldn’t take yourself or life too seriously! This is a world where nothing is normal or straight up… animals walk, talk, and watch TV, guppies ride motor-bikes, and gold fish surf the internet (when the humans aren’t looking that is!) With the power of imagination at the end of Gasp’s fins, the world is packed with unlimited potential and adventures just waiting to be discovered around every corner, under every pillow and even beneath the hallway runner. Yet no matter how much trouble and disaster Gasp creates, our plucky hero never loses his optimism and belief in himself. Join in on all new fishy tales of Gasp, right here on Nick!

It’s a premiere week of all new episodes of everyone’s favourite zoo animals! That’s right, a week of BRAND NEW episodes starring Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private - elite strike force commando Penguins with a world-class clandestine headquarters.

The Mighty B! – All new all week – Monday 30th August to 3rd September @ 4:30pm

It’s a premiere week of all new episodes from the world’s best Honeybee! That’s right, another exciting instalment of brand new episodes of The Mighty B!, featuring Bessie Higgenbottom as the world's most ambitious and lovable unhinged 9 and 3/4-year-old ‘Honeybee’ scout.  As a member of the Honeybees, Bessie wears her uniform every single day, and has earned more Bee badges than any Honeybee in history. But a bunch of badges still elude her, and Bessie's not stopping until she has every last one!




Charlie & Lola – New show – Weekdays starting Monday 23rd August @ 11:30am

Based on the award-winning books by Lauren Child, Charlie and Lola is a charming and imaginative animation series. Charlie is seven - he likes rockets, making racing cars and playing football with his friend Marv, who lives downstairs. Lola is four, but very nearly five. She likes pink milk, chimpanzees and her best friend Lotta. She is fascinated by everything and is very independent. As they come up against life's daily problems (be it a spider or learning how to share), they use their own method of problem solving: imagination and fantasy. And when Lola is unsure or worried, Charlie is there to support her with humour and logic. Aimed at three to seven-year-olds with delightful animation, the characters are voiced by children using their language. But the key to the series lies in the special relationship shared between the two siblings.


The Backyardigans – New episodes – Weekdays starting Monday 9th August @ 9:55am

The Backyardigans are back!  This award winning 3-D CGI animated show is about five preschool friends who use their vivid imaginations to embark on amazing epic adventures together. Each show starts close to home, develops into a fully realised fantasy and then returns home - just in time for a snack. Featuring four new songs in each half hour episode, The Backyardigans’ musical adventures help kids develop their imaginations and express themselves creatively – all while they bounce around their own living room singing, and dancing along! All new episodes are only on Nick Jr.


Dora’s Birthday Adventure – Premiere episode – Premieres Friday 20th August @ 9:30am with an encore @ 1:30pm

Happy Birthday, Dora! In the final episode of the Magic Storybook Trilogy and a nod to The Wizard of Oz, Dora and Boots need to get home for Dora’s birthday party with all her family and friends. Dora sings ‘I’m Remembering My Home’ as she remembers everyone she loves back in the rainforest. They can’t wait to get home, but before Dora and Boots can jump out of the Magic Storybook, a twisty wind picks them up and blows them into Wizzle World! Will they make it back in time for Dora’s birthday party?
