The new animated series Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty, created and produced by Funrise, will premiere Sunday, Jan. 27, at 11:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. The 26-episode series follows the comedic adventures of a spirited kitty named Felicity who possesses special transformative powers. Those powers spawn from her combined lineage, with the ability to lasso items in the form of a full-fledged rainbow, produce thunderous claps from her butterfly wings, fire lasers from her unicorn horn, and shoot glow sticks from her kitten paws. Together with her best friend Miguel, an energetic dog, she’s ready to take on every challenge that comes with living in the world of Mythlandia, which is inhabited by fairy tale creatures, wizards, giants, dragons, and more.
Ahead of the linear premiere, an all-new full-length episode will be available on the Nick app and Nick On Demand beginning Friday, Jan. 18. Additional episodes will air on Nicktoons beginning Monday, Jan. 28, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).
Following its U.S. launch, the series will roll out on Nickelodeon’s international channels and branded blocks across more than 170 countries and territories later this year. Expect to see a preview of new toys from Funrise at New York Toy Fair next month.
Last month, Funrise appointed Rich Magallanes as senior vice president of development and production for the company’s new IP and entertainment division, with Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty as the first launch.
