Nickelodeon has introduced a new show about a bunch of young birds trying to earn their wings as rescue birds for the preschooler audience called “Top Wing” and from what we have seen it looks to be a hit. The colors and animation are crisp and clean, the characters are fun and we thought the arc of these young birds studying to be full-feathered rescue birds enjoyable. We have watched the first episode and it looks to be another hit show for the preschool category for Nickelodeon.
The other nice thing about this show is that it is perfectly setup for the toy industry and we should expect to see a gambit of toys based on Nickelodeon’s “Top Wing” flying to the shelves quickly. For us, a Brody figure would be great, because who doesn’t love the puffin bird, especially when they can talk.
Nickelodeon takes adventure to new heights in the brand-new CG-animated preschool series Top Wing (26 episodes), premiering Monday, Nov. 6, at 12:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The action-packed series follows a team of eager young birds as they work together to help their island community, go on amazing adventures and earn their wings as full-feathered rescue birds. Produced by 9 Story Media Group, Top Wing features storylines that help preschoolers build self-confidence, and includes lessons about perseverance and hard work. Following its U.S. launch, Top Wing will roll out internationally in 2018.
Top Wing follows four best friend rescue birds–Swift, Penny, Rod and Brody–who are training to earn their wings at the Top Wing Academy on Big Swirl Island. With the help of their mentor Speedy, and unique turbo-charged vehicles and high-tech gadgets, the cadets are assigned different missions to sharpen their rescue skills and help those in need while learning valuable lessons along the way.
In Top Wing’s series premiere, “Time to Earn Our Wings,” cadets-in-training Swift, Penny, Rod and Brody gather at Top Wing Academy where they learn to pilot their new vehicles and become the best rescue team Big Swirl Island has ever seen.
Meet the Top Wing cadets:
- Swift – A daring and playful blue jay who is the fastest turbo-charged pilot in the sky.
- Penny – A curious penguin and undersea expert who is always up for a challenge in her super submarine.
- Rod – An energetic and funny rooster who is ready to fly across the island on his all-terrain vehicle.
- Brody – A laid-back puffin who loves to fly across, over and on the waves in turbo-charged vehicle.
Leading up to the linear series premiere of Top Wing, an all-new full-length episode and short-form content are available now on NickJr.com and the Nick Jr. App.
