A new show is pulling into Playhouse Disney! Chuggington is a feature-quality CGI-animated preschool series that follows the humorous and educational adventures of three young “trainees” as they learn to explore, work, and play in a safe and exciting world. Boys and girls worldwide have loved riding the rails while learning simple, yet important, social and emotional values from the Chuggington trainees – Koko, Brewster, and Wilson – and their railway friends.
Already a ratings success in the U.K., France, Australia, Germany, Japan, and Canada, Chuggington is arriving in the United States next week for their premiere on Playhouse Disney Monday, January 18th! Chuggington is scheduled to air Tuesdays through Fridays at 10:30 a.m. ET/PT and weekends at 7:30 a.m. ET/PT.
Chuggington also has a rich and engaging website – http://www.chuggington.com/ – featuring games, interactive adventures, stories and original content designed specifically for preschoolers to learn and play. You can also check out Chuggington on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
