Disney XD Announces New Animated Series, ‘Pickle & Peanut’
The series is a buddy comedy about two friends – an emotional pickle and a freewheeling peanut. Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) and Johnny Pemberton (21 Jump Street) are providing the voices.
Pickle & Peanut is scheduled for a fall 2015 premiere on Disney XD. The series will feature a mix of 2-D animation and live-action clips to tell the story of the two friends with big plans. The show was created by Noah Z. Jones (Fish Hooks) and developed by Joel Trussell (Yo Gabba Gabba!).
“We see very few pitches that are as funny and original as Pickle & Peanut,” said Eric Coleman, Senior Vice President, Original Series at Disney Television Animation. “We instantly fell in love with these characters, and Noah and Joel have built a world with a visual style and sensibility unlike anything on TV.”
The animation studio is also working on a third season of the Emmy and Annie Award-winning Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts and a second season of Wander Over Yonder.
