"THE RUGRATS" AND "CHALKZONE" JOIN THE "NICK ON CBS"
SATURDAY MORNING CHILDREN’S SCHEDULE
"THE WILD THORNBERRYS," "DORA THE EXPLORER," "BLUES CLUES"
AND "HEY ARNOLD!" MOVE TIME PERIODS
THE RUGRATS and CHALKZONE, two of Nickelodeon’s most successful cartoons,
will be added to CBS's popular NICK ON CBS Saturday morning children's schedule, starting
Saturday, Feb. 1.
NICK ON CBS regulars THE WILD THORNBERRYS, DORA THE EXPLORER, HEY
ARNOLD! and BLUES CLUES will also change time periods starting on Saturday, Feb. 1.
THE RUGRATS, E/I, TV-Y, discover magic, danger and great comedy in what others
would consider ordinary. For everyone's favorite babies, every day is an adventure. Tommy
Pickles is joined by his baby brother, Dil, his friends, Chuckie and Kimi Finster, the twins, Phil
and Lil Deville and his three year-old cousin, Angelica, the bully in the family. The Rugrats
venture into the unknown led by their boundless curiosity and innocent love of messy mischief.
The animation emphasizes perspective and often exaggerates sizes and shapes to reflect a child's
point of view. THE RUGRATS is a Klasky Csupo production.
CHALKZONE, E/I, TV-Y, chronicles the adventures of Rudy Tabootie, a 10-year old
boy who discovers a world beyond the chalk board where all erased chalk drawings come to life.
Luckily, with the help of his sidekick Snap and his best friend, Penny, Rudy’s a pro at drawing
himself out of trouble when they’re on an adventure. Each half-hour episode of ChalkZone
features three cartoon shorts which vary in length. CHALKZONE is the first series to spin off
from Nickelodeon's cartoon laboratory, Oh Yeah! Cartoons!, and is a Nicktoons production.
