Disney will launch its new action/comedy series Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero this Friday with a Christmas special on Disney XD. Some viewers report that the holiday episode is already available on the DisneyXD app. The series will begin airing regularly in early-2015.

Created by Jared Bush and Sam Levine, the show follows a kid Penn Zero who is tasked with saving the world since his parents are superheroes stuck in another dimension called the “Most Dangerous World Imaginable.” In the holiday special “Northpole Down,” Penn feels sad about spending his first holiday without his parents so he travels to the North Pole to help Santa. Henry “The Fonz” Winkler guest-stars as a snowman.
