Fans can look forward to a lot of merriment in the premiere episode titled, “Baby Tooth / Slobber Slug.” In the episode, “Baby Shark gets his first loose tooth and enlists William’s help to lose it so he can trade it in for a sand dollar. When their antics get the tooth lost for real, they must team up with the Toothfish Fairy to track it down. Then, while Baby Shark and his friends are playing Barnacle Ball, Hank’s pet rock, Rocky, is accidentally sent soaring into the lair of the vicious Slobber Slug and they must stage an elaborate rescue mission” (source: press release).
“Following the premiere, the episode will be available on Nick Jr. On Demand and Download-To-Own services, as well as Noggin, Nickelodeon’s interactive learning service for preschoolers, NickJr.com and the Nick Jr. App, which will also feature short-form content. New episodes will continue to rollout on Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. channels internationally beginning in May” (source: press release).
Pinkfong’s Baby Shark first swam onto the scene in November 2015 on YouTube and has put the biggest smiles on kids’ faces ever since. It wasn’t long until Baby Shark garnered a whopping 8 billion views (and counting!) – making it the most-watched video in YouTube history. Since then, the Baby Shark song became an 11x platinum single for selling over 11 million units in the U.S., brought several, live experiences to fans while on tour, and even generated a worldwide, viral trend, the #BabySharkChallenge.
From the oh, so adorable animation to the melodious songs and the phenomenal storylines in every episode, we’re so thrilled to see Baby Shark’s world continue to grow and we can’t wait to join Baby Shark and William on all of their subaqueous ventures!
