Get a glimpse at new Nickelodeon show 'Wallykazam!'

Posted on

Nickelodeon

The future of edutainment is now: On Feb. 3, Nickelodeon debuts a new preschool literacy series called Wallykazam! The show, created by Emmy-winning writer Adam Petlzman (Blue’s Clues, The Backyardigans) follows a troll named Wally and his pet dragon, Norville, as they make words come to life onscreen — teaching little ones skills like letter and sound identification, rhyming, vocabulary development and comprehension strategies. It’s also pretty darn cute — and as a bonus for parents, the series’ first season will also include guest turns by stars like “Weird Al” Yankovic, Seinfeld‘s John O’Hurley, and SNL‘s Vanessa Bayer.

Catch a glimpse of the show — and one very Minion-like hamster — in the exclusive clip below.

Wallykazam! debuts Feb. 3 at 1 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon.
