Nickelodeon takes adventure to new heights in the brand-new CG-animated preschool series Top Wing (26 episodes), premiering Monday 7th May 2018 on Nick Jr. UK & Ireland! The action-packed series follows a team of eager young birds as they work together to help their island community, go on amazing adventures and earn their wings as full-feathered rescue birds. Produced by 9 Story Media Group, the show features storylines that help preschoolers build self-confidence, and includes lessons about perseverance and hard work.
Top Wing follows four best friend rescue birds–Swift, Penny, Rod and Brody–who are training to earn their wings at the Top Wing Academy on Big Swirl Island. With the help of their mentor Speedy, and unique turbo-charged vehicles and high-tech gadgets, the cadets are assigned different missions to sharpen their rescue skills and help those in need while learning valuable lessons along the way.
In Top Wing’s series premiere, “Time to Earn Our Wings,” cadets-in-training Swift, Penny, Rod and Brody gather at Top Wing Academy where they learn to pilot their new vehicles and become the best rescue team Big Swirl Island has ever seen.
Meet the Top Wing cadets:
- Swift – A daring and playful blue jay who is the fastest turbo-charged pilot in the sky.
- Penny – A curious penguin and undersea expert who is always up for a challenge in her super submarine.
- Rod – An energetic and funny rooster who is ready to fly across the island on his all-terrain vehicle.
- Brody – A laid-back puffin who loves to fly across, over and on the waves in turbo-charged vehicle.
