Nickelodeon readies Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty for global launch


Nickelodeon has picked up the global rights to Funrise’s brand new animated series Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty. The comedy will debut on Nickelodeon in the United States on Sunday, Jan. 27, at 11:30 AM (ET/PT) before moving the next day to Nicktoons for new episodes every Monday at 9PM. Following its U.S. launch, the series will roll out on Nickelodeon’s international channels and branded blocks across 170+ countries and territories later this year.

Created and produced by Funrise, Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty (26 x 22-minute episodes) follows the comedic adventures of a spirited kitty named Felicity who possesses special transformative powers. 

Felicity, voiced by Allegra Clark, is a fearless feline who’s also part rainbow, part butterfly and part unicorn. This unique quality gives her the ability to lasso items in the form of a full-fledged rainbow, produce thunderous claps from her butterfly wings, fire lasers from her unicorn horn and shoot glow sticks from her kitten paws. Together with her best friend Miguel, an energetic dog, she’s ready to take on every challenge that comes with living in the world of Mythlandia which is inhabited by fairy tale creatures, wizards, giants, dragons and more.

In the series premiere of Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty, “Purrfect Party/Anubis Newbie,” Felicity worries that her powers won’t measure up at a party for the most powerful and popular citizens in Mythlandia. Also in the episode, an ancient Anubis king tests Miguel to see if he’s ready to leave Mythlandia and become the next ruler of the underworld.

Leading up to the linear series premiere of Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty, an all-new full-length episode is available now on the Nick App and Nick On Demand in the US.

Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty was originally developed by Rich Magallanes for Saban Brands. When the company sold its entertainment properties to Hasbro last year, Saban retained the rights to this specific animated series. It was then sold to Funrise Entertainment, a newly created media branch of the toy company headed up by Magallanes.
