Baby Shark Preschool Series for Nickelodeon


Nickelodeon has greenlit a brand-new animated preschool series, Baby Shark’s Big Show! (working title), based on the eponymous pop-culture phenomenon.

Co-produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio and SmartStudy, the 2D-animated series will follow Baby Shark and his best friend William as they journey on fun-filled comedic adventures in their community of Carnivore Cove, meet new friends and sing original catchy tunes along the way. Nickelodeon will debut Baby Shark’s Big Show! with an all-new original holiday special this December, with premieres rolling out across its preschool platforms in spring 2021.

Following the U.S. launch, the series will roll out on Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. channels internationally. In addition to Nickelodeon and SmartStudy’s partnership to produce Baby Shark’s Big Show!, ViacomCBS Consumer Products (VCP) is managing consumer-products licensing worldwide, excluding China, Korea and Southeast Asia, for the Baby Shark property.

“Having the opportunity to dive deeper into this incredible world and create all-new storylines has been extremely exciting, and our head of preschool Eryk Casemiro and his team can’t wait to help grow the Baby Shark universe and fanbase with an amazing new series that captures the heart and spirit of this beloved property,” said Ramsey Naito, executive VP of Nickelodeon Animation Production and Development.
