London, 10th January 2014 – The crazy and mischievous Rabbids® will make their UK television debut in Nickelodeon’s CG-animated series Rabbids Invasion premiering Monday 3rd February at 4:30pm on Nicktoons.
26 half-hour episodes will follow the uncontrollable Rabbids as they invade and wreak havoc on the human world. Communicating only by a crazy-sounding “Bwaaaaaah!” the Rabbids have no understanding of human conventions and are only interested in having fun.
During the premiere, ‘Omelet Party,’ the Rabbids stumble across a farm and become fascinated with the chickens’ ability to lay eggs. Next in ‘Rabbid Mollusk,’ the Rabbids find questionable uses for a starfish and an octopus while disrupting an old man’s attempt to clean windows. The series will air regularly weekdays at 4:30pm only on Nicktoons.
Fans can visit Nicktoons.co.uk/rabbids from the 20th January to access animated gifs, a quiz and play games such as Rabbids Raid, where players must attempt to catch the Rabbids armed only with plungers. The Nick App joins in on the mischievous fun featuring Rabbids-themed surprises in the addictive ‘Do Not Touch’ button, an exclusive game Rabbids Rhythm and access to a seven minute sneak-peak from the 27th January. The Nick App is available free from the App Store on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch or here.
