Since our little ones are very impressionable at a young age, we always appreciate there being programming that helps kids expand their vocabulary and sometimes in two languages. This is the case for the upcoming new Nickelodeon animated series, Santiago of the Seas, premiering October 9th, at 12:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nick Jr.
In Santiago of the Seas, we will follow young Santiago Montes, a brave kind-hearted pirate. Kids will enjoy watching him embark on daring rescues, treasure hunts in a fantastical Caribbean world. He will be joined by his loyal crew members Tomas and Lorelai. This twenty-episode series will feature an infused Spanish-language and Latino-Caribbean culture curriculum.
It was created by Niki Lopez, Leslie Valdez, and Valerie Walsh Valdes. Valdes and Walsh serve as executive producers with Lopez co-executive producing. Santiago by the Seas is produced by Nickelodeon Animation. Production is overseen by Eryk Casemiro, Senior Vice President, Nickelodeon Preschool.
It’s a very bright fast-paced series that will keep kids on the edge of their seats as Santi and his crew take on many challenges on the sea. LRMOnline had the opportunity to speak with Niki Lopez ahead of its release. As well as the voice of the lead Santiago, Kevin Chacon. In the interview, we talk about Lopez’s feelings on going from intern to creator at Nickelodeon. What kids are going to love about Santiago, and the importance of kids learning dual languages. You can check out the interview below!
