NOGGIN, NICKELODEON'S INTERACTIVE LEARNING SERVICE FOR PRESCHOOLERS, DEBUTS NEW ANIMATED MUSICAL SERIES "RHYMES THROUGH TIMES"

HISTORICAL SHORT-FORM SERIES FEATURES ORIGINAL MUSIC WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY AWARD-WINNING ACTOR AND SINGER CHRISTOPHER JACKSON

Noggin, Nickelodeon's interactive learning service for preschoolers, has launched a new historical animated musical series, Rhymes Through Times, featuring original music and lyrics written and performed by award-winning actor/singer/songwriter/composer Christopher Jackson (Hamilton, Moana), and Nick's fan-favorite preschool characters. Available now on Noggin and the Nick Jr. YouTube channel, the three-episode short-form series celebrates the Black experience and showcases the contributions of Black people to American culture, focusing on civil rights and leadership, performing arts, and science.

The first episode of Rhymes Through Times, "Hero," follows Ruby Bridges and Thurgood Marshall, portrayed by the Bubble Guppies' Zooli and Goby, as they take a stand against segregation. Subsequent episodes - "My Best," which celebrates Katherine Johnson (portrayed by Nella) and Guion Stewart Bluford Jr.'s (portrayed by Goby) contributions to space exploration; and "Why We Dance," which sees Nella from Nella the Princess Knight as Katherine Dunham, and AJ from Blaze and the Monster Machines as Alvin Ailey, express themselves through dance - will roll out every week on Noggin and the Nick Jr. YouTube channel. The episodes will also air on the Nick Jr. channel.

Concurrent with the launch of their respective episodes, each of the songs from Rhymes Through Times will be available on over 200+ digital streaming platforms, including Apple Music, Spotify, iTunes, Tidal, Amazon Music, Pandora and more.

Character development, animation and design for Rhymes Through Times are by Lion Forge Animation, LLC (Oscar(R)-winning Hair Love), and Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum served as educational consultant.

Rhymes Through Times incorporates a social and emotional curriculum, highlighting the value of kindness, perseverance and fairness. Aligning with Noggin's learning approach that aims to help preschoolers build big hearts, strong minds and healthy bodies, the series is the latest addition to Noggin's content slate which includes the recently launched series Noggin Knows, Kinderwood, School of Yum, Word Play and Imagination Trips, among others.

In Noggin, learning is led by the Nickelodeon preschool characters kids know and love, and developed by education and child development experts. The interactive service offers an ever-expanding library of books, learning games, activities, exclusive shorts and 1,000+ ad-free episodes of preschool favorites like PAW Patrol, Peppa Pig and Blue's Clues & You!
