Disney Junior Lines Up Guru’s Pikwik

Disney Junior in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Korea and India has slated the new animated preschool comedy Pikwik from Guru Studio.

In the show, Suki the hedgehog leads her team, consisting of Trevor the raccoon, Hazel the cat and Tibor the hippo, as they deliver surprise-filled parcels to the residents of Pikwik. The 11-minute stories are intended for preschoolers and aim to teach them the value of teamwork, responsibility and critical thinking.

Pikwik was created by Guru Studio’s executive creative director, Frank Falcone; development executive Rachel Reade Marcus; and former executive VP Mary Bredin.

Falcone said, “We love the world of Pikwik. This adorable cast of characters has already inspired our team of artists to tap that innocent joy that we love to bring to our animated stories. We’re thrilled to be working with the amazing team at Disney Junior, who share our passion and enthusiasm for these characters and their stories.”

Reade Marcus added, “We can’t wait to introduce preschoolers and their families to the quirky and bustling world of Pikwik where fun and duty go hand in hand!”
