Astral’s Disney Junior embarks on a colossal adventure with the premiere of the Canadian original series Justin Time on Sunday, September 16 at 8:30 a.m. ET. Showcasing friendship, teamwork and imaginative storytelling, Justin and his pals, Olive and Squidgy, star in the biggest adventures of all time told from every corner of the world. Viewers can catch a sneak peek on Saturday, September 8 at 9:50 a.m. ET, following the 45-minute Handy Manny special “Firefighter Manny.”
Justin Time follows Justin and his make-believe friend, Squidgy, as their imagination takes them on bite-size adventures to historical places. From riding rockets into space to building a giant stone monolith, these pals stumble upon exciting challenges and put their problem solving skills to the test with every opportunity. Each episode features two 11-minute stories where Justin and Squidgy are joined by their friend Olive who acts as their congenial tour guide offering a wealth of knowledge to help them reach their goal.
In the premiere episode, “You Forgot to Say Arrgh!,” Justin, Squidgy and Olive are on the lookout for buried treasure but are being followed by the meanest looking pirate on the high seas. Justin quickly realizes that he had the wrong impression of Captain Redbeard when they discover that he’s actually a friendly singing pirate. Following the premiere, Justin Time will air in its regular timeslot weekend mornings at 8:30 a.m. ET.
Commissioned by Family Channel, Justin Time is produced by Guru Studio (The Backyardigans, Guess with Jess, Mudpit). The series is created and developed by Brandon James Scott, Frank Falcone and Mary Bredin. The Justin Time voice cast features Gage Munroe (Immortals, Murdoch Mysteries) as Justin, Jenna Warren (The Doodlebops) as Olive and Scott McCord (Yin! Yang! Yo!, Babar and the Adventures of Badou) as Squidgy.
For more exciting escapades, viewers can journey over to the Justin Time supersite, now live on DisneyJunior, where they can learn how to make their own Squidgy-like friend or try their hand at a number of games, including the interactive “Wave-Along Adventures” game.
The sneak peek of Justin Time will also be available on DisneyJunior and Disney Junior OnDemand beginning September 8, with a new episode available weekly on Disney Junior OnDemand beginning September 16.
