Disney goes to ‘Jungle Junction’

'Clubhouse', 'Tigger & Pooh' get third seasons

Disney Channel’s preschool “Playhouse Disney” block has put the animated skein “Jungle Junction” in production.

Cabler has also given third-season greenlights to Playhouse Disney staples “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” and “My Friends Tigger & Pooh.”

“Jungle Junction,” which will be produced in the U.K., revolves around animals who explore a road-filled jungle — on wheels. According to the channel, the show teaches individuality and care for the environment. Skein will bow on Disney Channel and Playhouse Disney outlets across the world in 2009.

“The humorous character-based stories are structured around an innovative curriculum that highlights the juxtaposition we all recognize between natural and urban habitats,” said Nancy Kanter, senior VP of Playhouse Disney Worldwide. “We are hopeful that ‘Jungle Junction’ will introduce preschoolers early on to the importance of fostering an appreciation of a responsibility for the environment.”

Spider Eye will produce the CG-animated “Jungle Junction,” which is exec produced by Erica Darby. Trevor Ricketts created the show.

“Jungle Junction” reps the second international production for Playhouse Disney; “Bunnytown” is also produced in the U.K.

As for “Mickey Mouse” and “Tigger & Pooh,” both CG shows come from Walt Disney TV Animation. Disney Channel has ordered an addition 35 episodes of both.

“Mickey Mouse,” which bowed in May 2006, is exec produced by Rob LaDuca. “Tigger & Pooh,” which launched in May, is exec produced by Brian Hohlfeld. Both shows are tops in their time periods among kids 2-5 against all broadcast and cable competish.
