[via press release from Nickelodeon]



NEW YORK, Sept. 5, 2012 - Nickelodeon presents Tickety Toc, a brand-new CG-animated preschool series (26 episodes) that follows the comedic adventures of twins, Tommy and Tallulah. The half-hour series premiering Monday, Sept. 10, teaches kids about friendship, problem-solving and teamwork. New episodes will roll out Monday, Sept. 10 - Thursday, Sept. 13, at 9 a.m. (ET/PT). Tickety Toc is created and directed by FunnyFlux Entertainment founder and president, Gil Hoon Jung and executive-produced by Nigel Pickard and Vanessa Hill for The Foundation. The series is produced by the Zodiak Kids production company, The Foundation, and FunnyFlux Entertainment. Tickety Toc will regularly air weekdays at 9 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

"Tickety Toc allows viewers to enter an imaginative world of eccentric characters and slapstick surprises while being introduced to the concept of time in a fun and engaging way," said Teri Weiss, EVP of Production and Development, Nickelodeon Preschool. "The series allows preschoolers to join in the action-packed adventures, laughing and learning along the way."

"We are delighted Tickety Toc will be joining the brilliant line-up on Nickelodeon," said Nigel Pickard, CEO Zodiak MEAA/UK Family and Kids. "It is is a new and unique series for preschoolers who will enjoy following Tommy & Tallulah as they set off on their latest adventure."

On the wall of an old clock shop hangs a very special clock -- Tickety Toc clock. Every hour, on the hour, it chimes and out pop twins Tommy and Tallulah. Inside the clock is a fantastical and funny place inhabited by puppy-dog trains, hare-brained rabbits, cooking cows and weather-obsessed chickens. Each action-packed adventure centers on inseparable heroes, Tommy and Tallulah, as they race against time to save the day, return life to normal, and keep the clock ticking.

The schedule for the Sept. 10 premiere week for Tickety Toc is as follows (all times are 9 a.m. ET/PT):

· Monday, Sept. 10 - Race Time/Bouncy Time

It's Race Time and Hopparoo has beaten everyone in town except for Tallulah. Tommy tries to train his sister in a variety of silly ways. Tallulah races her own way and pulls off an amazing victory. / It's Bouncy Time and Tommy and Tallulah compete to see who can bounce the highest.

· Tuesday, Sept. 11 - Watermelon Time/Mystery Time

The twins set out to find a watermelon, but instead find a giant pumpkin that's too big to control! / Food is going missing all over Tickety Town and Tommy and Tallulah must solve the mystery.

· Wednesday, Sept. 12 - Jelly Sandwich Time/Bell Time

When Tommy and Tallulah spill jelly on a blanket, they must race to get it cleaned before Chime Time! / The twins try to fix McCoggins' bell in some very unusual ways before Chime Time.

· Thursday, Sept. 13 - Bubble Time/Fruity Pudding Time

The twins blow an unpoppable bubble that traps everyone - except Hopparoo! Can he get them free before Chime Time? / Madame Au Lait is busy making her pudding, so the twins polish the Clock House for her - with slippery results!

At www.nickjr.com, Nickelodeon's award-winning website for parents and preschoolers, kids can make Tickety Toc puppets, print Tommy and Tallulah coloring pages, and play a Tickety Toc Toe game. Plus, parents can watch Tickety Toc videos with their kids and find out more about the show, the characters, and the curriculum.
