Spring is a new beginning with flowers sprouts and trees getting leaves, and it’s also a time for new television programming at Disney Junior! This month, a brand new commercial free program is premiering and I want to tell you all about it!
Disney Junior gets roar-some this month with the debut of the new animated series Henry Hugglemonster. Premiering Sunday, April 21 at 12:30 p.m. ET, Henry Hugglemonster follows the everyday adventures of fun loving Henry, the five-year-old middle child in a happy and chaotic, close-knit monster family.
Based on the book series I’m a Happy Hugglewug by award-winning children’s book author/illustrator and Ireland’s Children’s Laureate Niamh Sharkey, the series explores positive life lessons about family and community relationships. Set in the cheerful town of Roarsville, Henry Hugglemonster showcases many of the emotions that young children feel as they learn to navigate their own lives including learning to work as a team, helping others and understanding what it means to be part of a family.
Produced by Oscar®-nominated animation studio Brown Bag Films, who also created Doc McStuffins, this adorable new series is sure to please your little one. Each episode features two 11 minutes stories that are filled with life lessons around friendship and cooperating with siblings.
The series premieres Sunday April 21st, at 12:30pm ET, with new episodes Sundays at 12:30pm ET only on the Disney Junior Channel. You can tune into Disney Junior at noon on April 21st though, because there will be a special thirty minute episode of Quest for the Crystal Mickey.
Plunderin’ Pete has snatched the legendary Crystal Mickey statue from the Clubhouse! Worse yet, without the magic of the Crystal Mickey, the Clubhouse starts to sink into the ground, never to be seen again! We have to get that statue back! A nail-biting, high-stakes adventure like this requires an extraordinary hero to lead the way, namely, Kansas City Mickey! With K.C. Mickey in charge, and the help of us at home, not even Plunderin’ Pete’s trickiest traps can keep us from recovering the Crystal Mickey and getting it back just in time to save our beloved Clubhouse.
It’s going to be a great day of Disney Junior programming, so set your PVR for Sunday, April 21st and enjoy the shows!
