Corus Entertainment is pleased to announce that its popular Kids Can Press title book character Scaredy Squirrel is starring in his very own animated series. A Canadian original production produced by Nelvana Studio, Scaredy Squirrel will premiere on Sunday, April 3 at 9:30 a.m. ET/PT on YTV.
“Corus is delighted to take our successful Kids Can Press literary character Scaredy Squirrel and bring him to life on screen,” said Ted Ellis, VP, Kids/Family Programming, Corus Entertainment. “With new comedic storylines and a fresh look for an older television audience, this Nelvana series epitomizes the quality entertainment our YTV viewers have come to expect from us.”
All 26 30-minute episodes of the series are inspired by the popular little worry wart, Scaredy Squirrel, created by author Mélanie Watt. The series follows Scaredy as he tackles life’s daily challenges and explores the world outside of his treehouse. However, Scaredy always manages to balance his job at the Stash n’ Hoard grocery store with his nervous attempts to always stay safe. While geeky at first, Scaredy is one confident squirrel, never apologizing for his idiosyncrasies.
