This coming Thursday, December 5, at 7 to 8 PM, Nickelodeon will be debuting an epic new Bubble Guppies primetime special titled “The Puppy and the Ring,” which is inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s iconic literary masterpiece The Lord of the Rings, and will feature Arrested Development’s Jeffrey Tambor as the voice of an evil Night Wizard.
“I am going to be a hero in my own household,” says Tambor. “My twin boys will go ballistic when they hear Daddy. Ah to be ‘cool’ in one’s own living room.”
In The Puppy and the Ring, preschoolers are welcomed into Bubbledom, where secrets and sorcery are the order of the day and the Magical Ring of the Sun keeps everything in perfect balance by being in control of night and day. Things start to take a turn for the worse when the evil Night Wizard steals the Ring from the benevolent Sun King, all in a plan to plunge Bubbledom into eternal darkness. Join Molly and Gil as they accompany their puppy on a quest through three magical realms so they can return the Ring of the Sun to its rightful owner by sundown.
