Last month, we introduced you to Sheriff Callie’s Wild West, a new CG cartoon featuring the friendly voice of Mandy Moore. The show is already available on Disney Junior’s app and website – and today, the network announced that it will premiere on real, live television in early 2014. January 20, specifically.
This country-western-music-filled series “utilizes folklore of the Old West to impart social skills and lessons for young kids age 2-7 about being a good friend and neighbor,” according to Disney’s release. The story follows Callie (Moore), an adorable lawcat “who keeps the peace in her frontier town of Nice and Friendly Corners using her magic lasso and cowgirl know-how.” Moore’s costars include High School Musical’s Lucas Grabeel as Callie’s deputy and Gravity Falls’s Jessica DiCicco as… a sentient cactus. The cast also features “an adorable trio of singing prairie dogs pops up to perform little ditties throughout each episode, emphasizing the lessons that are being introduced and providing a comedic transition between scenes.”
Tune in to Disney Channel on Friday, Dec. 143at 8:45 a.m., 2 p.m., and 7:20 p.m. to catch a special preview episode of Sheriff Callie – and find EW’s exclusive peek at the show below.
