Growing Up Creepie

Nickelodeon – Fridays from 27 June, 5.00pm

A fairy tale without the fairy. A family that seems a little scary… Growing Up Creepie is back with brand new episodes! In this new series Creepie Creecher is still trying to balance her home life with bugs and school life with those strange human creatures. Her secret home life is almost discovered in this series when Creepie, Chris-Alice and Bunny Hollyruller are held captive in a roach trap motel until Creepie negotiates with the motel’s owner, a roach-circus impresario. And a wax beetle in the wax museum, with a long-held grudge, seeks revenge on the town’s bug-haters. Tune in to this new series every Friday at 5pm from 27th June

If you’re going trick or treating this Halloween, make sure you get home in time to witness the exclusive premiere of Growing Up Creepie and a sneak preview of 2008 show Edgar & Ellen on Nickelodeon.

A fairy tale without the fairy, Growing Up Creepie is a brand new show about Creepie, a young girl raised by a family of bugs. Growing up, Creepie came to realise that she’d never fly, spew venom or live for a week without her head. Her parents realised it too, and decided to send her to school with humans. But Creepie must keep her home life a secret, if anyone found out the truth the family home would be fumigated! Premiering exclusively on Nick’s WICKED WEDNESDAY, 3.30pm, Wednesday 31st October. Following with a regular slot on Saturdays @ 1.30pm repeated Sundays @ 8am.

Edgar & Ellen are not-so-ordinary mischievous twins who live in a 13-story mansion on the edge of their sickly sweet town called “Nods Limbs”. Edgar and Ellen love booby traps and pranks and they prank each other and the townspeople all day long. Watch the twins concoct a cacophony of chaos during Nick’s WICKED WEDNESDAY Halloween special @ 4pm & 8.30pm, Wednesday 31st October. The series follows in 2008, but we’ll have mischievous shorts playing on Nick until then.

The new shows are screening alongside a host of other spooky Halloween themed collections of your favourite programmes on what Nickelodeon likes to call WICKED WEDNESDAY. So settle in and prepare to be terrified by Halloween specials of Unfabulous, Mr Meaty, Spongebob Squarepants and Zoey 101.

Growing Up Creepie – Exclusive Premiere 3.30pm – Then Saturdays at 1.30pm

A fairy tale without the fairy. A family that seems a little scary… Growing Up Creepie is a great and gross brand new show! Creepie Creecher is a young girl who was abandoned as a baby and raised by a family of bugs who brought her up as one of them. Creepie learned to scale walls, spin webs dental floss and developed a special sensitivity to all things buggy. Growing up, Creepie came to realize that she’d never fly, spew venom, or live for a week without her head. Her parents realised it too, and decided to send her to school with others of her kind, human teenagers. Creepie finds humans just as strange as they find her. Determined not to change because others find her strange, she’s discovered it’s hard to keep the outside world away and keep her home life a secret. If anyone found out the truth, she’d be zapped from her family and the family home fumigated!
