Nickelodeon today announced superstar Gwen Stefaniâ€™s animated series Kuu Kuu Harajuku will premiere exclusively on the network in the U.S. this October!
The 26-episode series, co-created and executive produced by Stefani, follows the kuu kuu adventures of the band HJ5 — Love, Angel, Music, Baby and G — through their super cute world of music, fashion and style.Â Thanks to their manager Rudie, angry aliens, NoFun politicians, hungry monster pets, and other obstacles, every gig is interrupted and the girls never get to complete a concert — but G and her friends never give up.
“Partnering with Nickelodeon on Kuu Kuu Harajuku is a dream come true!” saysÂ Stefani.Â “Itâ€™s been incredible to see the Harajuku Girls and the world they live in come to life. The artwork is so beautiful and the whole series turned out better than I could have ever imagined. I love that this is an animated series for young girls that celebrates creativity, imagination and individuality. I canâ€™t wait for everyone to see it!”
In the series premiere, â€œTotally Teen Genie,â€ Angel releases a Teen Genie with attitude and tries to use her three wishes to help HJ5 win a Totally Teen Awards Golden Hoodie trophy. Then in â€œAngel’s Flight,â€ Angelâ€™s determined to restore her reputation after an unflattering picture appears online.
Kuu Kuu HarajukuÂ premieresÂ Monday, October 3rd @ 4PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon.Â at 4 p.m. The showÂ will air new episodes at 4 p.m. through Friday, October 7, and continue with premieres in its regular timeslot of Saturdays @ 8:30AM ET/PT.
