TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2015 /CNW/ - Corus Entertainment's preschool channel Treehouse is thrilled to announce that Splash'N Boots is returning with new interstitials, a new album and more fun surprises for little ones. Building off the incredible success of the first season of shorts, the beloved children's entertainers will be back in the Big Yellow Boot this year with even more dancing, music and fun as well as a new lovable puppy named Charlie. The interstitial episodes will air on a regular schedule four times a day at 6:55 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 6:25 p.m. and 9:25 p.m. and will be available on mobile devices on the TreehouseGO app.
The first new episode will premiere after the special broadcast of Treehouse Big Day Out 2, a special hour-long broadcast of the live singing and dancing stage show featuring Splash'N Boots and The Wiggles, which airs on Saturday, October 10 at 5:10 p.m.
"We are thrilled to be bringing Splash'N Boots back to the Big Yellow Boot with more characters, songs and dancing for kids to enjoy," said Jamie Piekarz, Director of Content, Corus Kids. "Since joining the Treehouse family, their music and playful activities have touched the hearts and funny bones of kids and parents alike."
Treehouse is also ramping up more excitement on the interstitial series this year by introducing the Boot Jam Band, a three-piece band that accompanies Splash'N Boots during their Boot Jams. And Splash'N Boots will leave the Boot for the very first time this season by way of their giant bundle of balloons to play hide and seek and play music in the park.
Additionally, Splash'N Boots have a recorded a brand new full length album, Songs from the Boot, to coincide with the new season. All twelve songs from the album are featured during the episodes. "Songs from the Boot" can be found here and will be available on iTunes on October 10.
The episodes will continue to feature the Bootle, a periscope tablet with which Splash and Boots talk to kids at home, as well as the regular cast of characters, including the lovable talking, fuzzy piano, Keys, Chef Brock Lee and Jumping Jack Granny, who learns some new dance moves and never forgets to "Shake your bum." Together they create a world where laughter prevails, joy is found in the strangest places and each child feels safe, loved, and important.
