PAW Patrol is a Canadian/American animated television preschool series that was created by Keith Chapman. The series first aired on August 12, 2013, on Nickelodeon in the United States and in Canada on TVOKids on September 2, 2013. Although it is considered a Nick Jr. show, the show is broadcast on Nickelodeon and TVOKids. The show is produced by Spin Master Entertainment in association with TVOKids and Nickelodeon, with the show's animation being produced by Guru Studio. On November 14, 2013, Nickelodeon announced that PAW Patrol had been renewed for a second season, which began airing on August 13, 2014.
PAW Patrol is a CGI, action-adventure preschool series starring a pack of seven pups: Marshall, Chase, Rocky, Zuma, Rubble, Skye, and Everest (the last of which was added to the series in Season 2) who are led by a tech-savvy boy named Ryder. With a unique blend of stunts, pop culture references and lots of child-friendly humor, the PAW Patrol works together on high-stakes rescue missions to protect the city of Adventure Bay.
From Marshall the firedog to Chase the police pup to Skye the pilot, each pup brings unique personality and skill to the team, modeling the importance of teamwork and good citizenship. They all have special Pup Packs on their backs to help them handle anything – from rescuing kittens to saving a train from a rock slide. And no matter how big the adventure, the PAW Patrol always has time for a game, a laugh, and an ear scratch from Ryder.
