New Dora the Explorer and Team Umizoomi Primetime Specials Premiere Aug. 13


New Dora the Explorer and Team Umizoomi Primetime Specials Premiere Aug. 13

Nickelodeon will be celebrating the Olympics and the sports-friendly summer season with a couple of new primetime specials from their hit shows Dora the Explorer and Team Umizoomi on August 13 starting at 7:00PM. There will also be a new spot featuring Team Umizoomi and supermodel Heidi Klum on Sunday, Aug. 19 on Nick Jr.

The Dora the Explorer special is titled Dora’s Fantastic Gymnastics Adventure (7:00 p.m. ET/PT), and follows Dora and Boots as they practice for the Fantastic Gymnastics Show. While practicing, Dora receives a special delivery – a beautiful rainbow ribbon. The ribbon allows Dora to start the show with her ribbon dance, but Swiper comes in and swipes the ribbon, so Dora and Boots set out on an adventure to find the ribbon in order to save their special routine.

Team Umizoomi’s special, on the other hand, is entitled Team Umizoomi: The Umi Games (7:30 p.m. ET/PT). The special has the entire team preparing to participate in the biggest sports event around – the Umi Games! However, competition is strong as they have to face the fast, strong, and very agile Sports Robots in four different sports – soccer, basketball, swimming, and biking. Will Milli, Geo and Bot’s Mighty Math Powers be enough to outsmart the robot athletes and win the trophy?

The new Team Umizoomi spot on Sunday, Aug. 19, will have guest Heidi Klum encountering problems because her shoe is not even with the other. True to the show’s message that Math can be used to solve everyday problems, Umi Team member Milli uses her measuring tape ponytails to add inches to the shoe.
