Kids’ channel Nickelodeon is expanding its preschool programming slate with the addition of two animated series: Digby Dragon on the Nick Jr channel, and Trucktown.

digby dragonRunning exclusively in the US on NOGGIN, Nickelodeon's video subscription service for preschoolers, the network will air second seasons of three series —Teletubbies, Miffy's Adventures Big and Small and Hey Duggee — on the Nick Jr channel.

The CG-animated series Digby Dragon centres on a young dragon who is learning to fly. Along with his best friends Chips, Fizzy Izzy and Grumpy Goblin, Digby sets off on adventures in the colourful 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.

Trucktown features a world populated by young trucks, and centres on Flat Bed Jack and his friends Dump Truck Dan, Monster Truck Max and others as they roar, romp and rock their way through town. The show, based on a book series by children's author Jon Scieszka (The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales), illustrates that preschoolers can find solutions to any problem through game play and fun.
