Julius Jr. is an American animated preschool television series based on the characters of the Paul Frank brand.[citation needed] Produced by Saban Brands and animated by BrainPower Studio, Julius Jr. airs on Nick Jr. in the United States and currently[when?] premieres new episodes every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. ET/PT. The series airs already in the United States and will premiere in international markets starting in Fall 2014. Following Julius Jr. and his playful friends, the series uses equal doses of imagination and inventive spirit to help each other overcome challenges big and small – teaching kids that the best inventions are the ones that help your friends!

Premise[edit]

The series is built around Julius Jr., a monkey with a penchant for invention.[citation needed] Together with his best pals, Worry Bear, Sheree, Clancy and Ping, they build a playhouse out of a simple cardboard box. But when they walk inside, to their surprise and delight, they discover that ordinary objects magically come to life and amazing adventures are just a door away.

Characters[edit]

Main[edit]

Julius Jr, a young monkey and an aspiring inventor who loves to create gadgets to help his friends.[citation needed] He lives in "the box," where he has his own workshop. His catchphrase is "The best inventions are the ones that help your friends!" He is inspired by Paul Frank's iconic Julius monkey. Played by E.G. Daily.

Clancy, the shortest giraffe ever who lives in "the box" with Julius and the others. Clancy is daring and always ready for anything, but can be a bit impatient at I times. Played by Julie Lemieux.

Sheree, a blue raccoon who lives in "the box" with Julius and the others. Sheree is girly, and loves to bake cupcakes and other sweet treats. She also loves anything sparkly, and has a great sense of fashion. Played by Athena Karkanis.

Worry Bear, a bear who lives in "the box" with Julius and the others. He surely lives up to his name; he worries a lot. Whenever Clancy says "What could go wrong?" Worry Bear always lists all the things that could go wrong. But, his heart is in the right place. Played by Benjamin Israel.

Ping, the youngest member of "the box" who is a panda. Ping's favorite color is pink, and she is outgoing and loves to have fun. She is curious, like any young child. Unfortunately due to her age she isn't the most independent. Played by Stephanie Lynn Robinson.
