It's hard not to fall in love with Paul Frank's iconic Julius. The precocious monkey looks adorable on hip tots' clothes, notebooks, and accessories. But starting this weekend, kids can step even further into his world with the launch of Julius Jr. on Nick Jr. The animated preschool series is just as whimsical as you'd expect. Starring junior versions of Julius Julius the Monkey and the entire collection of Paul Frank characters (Worry Bear, Sheree, Clancy, and Ping), the preschool-oriented show teaches kids the importance of friendship and the joy of turning everyday items into afternoons of fun. Each episode encourages kids to think outside the box and be accepting of other people's ideas.
We got an exclusive first look at the show's opening sequence in advance of Julius Jr.'s launch on Sept. 29. Take a look, and be sure to tune in to what is sure to be one of this season's hottest new kid shows.
