New Animated Series ‘Pickle and Peanut’ to Premiere on Disney XD on September 7
The series stars Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) and Johnny Pemberton (22 Jump Street), and it follows the adventures of best friend Pickle and Peanut.
Pickle and Peanut was created by Noah Z. Jones (Fish Hooks) and the series follows small town friends Pickle and Peanut as they start their last year of high school in a fictional suburb of Reno, Nevada. The show mixes 2D animation and live-action clips giving the series a “quirky nature.”
In the premiere episode, ‘Greg/Gramma Jail,’ Pickle lends his new friend Greg to frenemy Lazer in an attempt to land an invitation to a party, and Pickle and Peanut accidentally get elderly Mam Mams arrests and have to break her out of ‘gramma jail.’
To celebrate the new series, a new game launches August 3 from DisneyXD.com called “Pickle and Peanut: Mjart Mart Madness.”
The series premieres September 7 at 9 p.m. on Disney XD.
