Disney Junior and Disneynature present the short-form series “It’s UnBungalievable,” an extension of “The Lion Guard,” premiering SATURDAY, JANUARY 9 (9:52 a.m. EST). Hosted by “The Lion Guard’s” animated characters Bunga the honey badger and Ono the egret, “It’s UnBungalievable” is a nature show offering fun facts about animals and their habitats. Each episode features live-action wildlife footage from Disneynature and highlights two animals, chosen by Bunga and Ono, to compete in various categories such as “Who’s Quicker?,” “Who Has Better Hair?” and “Who’s Hungrier?”
Continuing the storytelling of “The Lion King” epic, the animated series “The Lion Guard” follows the adventures of Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, and his diverse group of friends as they unite to protect the Pride Lands. Kion and his friends were introduced this past November in Disney Channel’s animated television movie “The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar,” the #1 primetime cable TV telecast of 2015 among Kids 2-5 and the #1 animated telecast across kid cable-TV networks among Total Viewers and Adults 18-49. “The Lion Guard” will premiere FRIDAY, JANUARY 15 (9:30 a.m. EST) on Disney Channel.
Executive-produced by Ford Riley (“Special Agent Oso”) and starring Joshua Rush (“The Adventures of Puss in Boots”) as Bunga and Atticus Shaffer (ABC’s “The Middle”) as Ono, “It’s UnBungalievable” is a production of Disney Television Animation and 7ate9 Entertainment in association with Disneynature. Launched in 2008, Disneynature brings the world’s top nature filmmakers together to share a wide variety of wildlife stories with audiences everywhere.
