Nick Stays Friends with Sunny Patch

Nickelodeon said Monday that it has ordered 20 new episodes of 3-D animated series Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends.

The show -- based on the book series by David Kirk -- airs weekdays on Nick Jr. at 10 a.m. (EST/PST).

Miss Spider's message of friendship and kindness to fellow bugs is an important one for all of us -- bug or human," Nickelodeon Preschool Television executive creative director Brown Johnson said in a prepared statement. “It's great to be working with [Nelvana/Absolute Pictures] and David Kirk on another season of this beautiful series.”
