Bunsen is a Beast, Nickelodeon’s new 20-episode series from animation vet Butch Hartman (Fairly Odd Parents), will premiere on February 21 at 5:30 p.m.
First announced in late 2015, the show follows Bunsen, the first beast to go a human school, and his best friend Mikey as they go on adventures in their town. The show will air daily until February 24, before settling into a regular time slot on Saturday mornings at 10:30 a.m.
The cast from Bunsen is a Beast includes Jeremy Rowley (iCarly ) as Bunsen, Ben Giroux (Henry Danger) as Mikey and Kari Wahlgren (Fairly Odd Parents) as Amanda, a beast hater. The series was produced at Nick’s Burbank, California studio, which just recently opened a larger 20,000-square-foot facility.
Hartman’s Emmy Award-winning series Fairly Odd Parents is Nickelodeon’s third longest-running animated series to date. He’s also the creative force behind Danny Phantom and T.U.F.F. Puppy.
