TORONTO, Feb. 11, 2015 /CNW/ - Corus Entertainment's preschool channel Treehouse is welcoming 2015 JUNO Award-nominated kids singing duo, Splash'N Boots to its programming schedule with a series centered around the joy of music and dance. Splash'N Boots will premiere on Treehouse on Monday, February 16 and continue to delight viewers with interstitials peppered throughout each day.

Splash'N Boots welcome preschoolers into the Big Yellow Boot, a giant, cozy, house-sized boot in the middle of the Treehouse world. Packed with songs, dancing, and amazing adventures, the short episodes star Splash, who loves to make people laugh, Boots who is always wearing her signature yellow boots, and their friend Keys, a big, fuzzy, wide-eyed piano. The episodes feature the Bootle, a periscope tablet with which Splash'N Boots talk to kids at home, the Wishing Puddle that delivers wishes through a puddle on the wall, and the Costume Closet that magically transforms Splash and Boots into new characters. Together they create a world where laughter prevails, joy is found in the strangest places and each child feels safe, loved, and important.
"What better occasion than Family Day to introduce Splash'N Boots to our Treehouse family," said Jamie Piekarz, Director of Content, Corus Kids. "Besides being one of the top children's acts in Canada, the pair have entertained and inspired kids all over the world and now our viewers will have the opportunity to enjoy their humour and music on a daily basis."
Splash'N Boots have performed more than 1,200 shows in the last six years across Canada and the U.S. and are internationally recognized with sold out performances around the world including Dubai, Italy, Bermuda and Australia. Besides touring extensively, Splash'N Boots have also released seven award-winning CDs, 18 music videos and two full-length DVDs. The pair has two JUNO Award nominations for Children's Album of the Year, in 2015 and 2014, and they have been crowned Canadian Children's Music Group of the Year three times at the Siruis XM Independent Music Awards.
