Nick Jr. will be kicking off 2017 with a pre-school animated franchise that’s already a MONSTER in the UK in terms of success…or should I say dragon?

On Monday, January 23rd @ 7 pm ET/PT only on Nick Jr, the first season of Digby Dragon will commence. The series is distributed by Aardman Animations Ltd. and produced by Fizzy Productions Ltd. The series centers on a young dragon named Digby who is learning to fly. Along with his best friends Chips, Fizzy Izzy and Grumpy Goblin, Digby sets off on magical adventures in the colorful and enchanted Applecross Wood. In the series premiere, “Runaway Scottie/Dragon Rock,” Digby gets the chance to be a courageous hero when he rescues Archie from a runaway train. Then, Digby and his friends journey to Peek Rock for a special event. In Digby Dragon, preschoolers will learn about friendship, respect for others and teamwork.
