Angry Birds Holiday Short Film to Air on Nickelodeon

Angry Birds finally fling there way on to TV with a new holiday short-film that will air on Nickelodeon this weekend.  About a week ago, Rovio released a short animated teaser clip about the newest episode of Angry Birds Seasons: Wreck the Halls.  We didn’t say too much about that original release because, well, there wasn’t a whole lot to say. But we did suspect a lot more to come of this clip, and now we have our answer.

Tomorrow, Saturday, December 17th, Rovio will be showing the entire episode on Nickelodeon! This information has popped up in a few different places, but we might as well cite Rovio’s blog as the true source. According to Rovio,

Viewers in the US should tune in at 11 AM EST on Saturday. In the UK, the animation will be airing at 5:55 PM GMT. Our fans in Mexico should turn on their TVs at noon CMT, while those of you in Argentina will be watching at 5 PM ART. For Brazil, it airs at 2 PM BRT, and in Colombia it will be on at 12:30 PM EST.

If you are not in one of these countries, or you simply don’t have Nickelodeon, you will be able to find it on nick.com/watch later in the day. Looking at the airing schedule for tomorrow, it seems this video will run during the “Kung Fu Panda” timeslot.

Special thanks to everyone who tipped us off about it, especially KoSmOs and STBPD.

There’s nothing here that says that it won’t. Figure out what time Kung Fu Panda will air in the Philippines. Or ask Rovio yourself.

Maybe because its a kid friendly channel, so they show it on there.

Type that exactly, verbatim, only changing the website and text to display.

will appear as Greatest site in the world

Perhaps I should answer your question as well. <a…> is an anchor, href is a hyper-reference, and then the anchor is closed by </a>. The information between the anchor and its close is what is hyperlinked.

It wasn’t an episode. It was a 4-minute short film. This does not indicate a full-fledged cartoon series.

Will it be in South Africa?

By Chris

On the pause screen of Angry Birds it sais:
“Watch the amazing new animation today at 11am on nickelodeon”

1. Angry Birds is a worldwide game. So why does it not say in what country it will be at 11am? In my country e.g. it is NOT at 11am.

2. Your article above sais that it will be 11am EST in the US. Now I am wondering why Rovio is using EST for their information on the pause screen. What has Rovio to do with EST? As far as I know they are not based in the EST time zone.

I don’t know Chris, ask Rovio, or just watch it online.

sorry if its off topic but i would have a question to the daily comic strip from rovio:
what form is it when the pig leader (part17) says “i wants to go faster”
shouldnt it mean “i want to go faster” or is it kind of a pluralis majestatis where the plural ‘we’ is replaced with a singular ‘I’?
this form appeared already sometimes in rovios strips and always i wonder if it is correct?
i couldn’d judge cause english is not my mother-language!
pls answer! thx

In all of te comics, it adds random S’es to the end of words. I’m guessing the artist’s first language is finnish, and doesnt know english grammar well.

There is no specified date, but they have openly said soon on their Twitter.

By Breindel Montealto

Jake, the 12th chapter will be on December 28, 2011. Right, Slim? I have any evidence of this. My name is Breindel. But, you can call me Breine. Go to Angry Birds Wiki and edit Smugglers’ Plane page. Don’t let someone delete evidences.

Rank: Sling God with 28500 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

AB Wiki is a bunch of nonsense. It doesn’t count as evidence. It also claims that the next Seasons episode will be Valentines Day and that the next bird will be Purple, but Rovio has not made any comment about either of these.

By Breindel Montealto

why someone deleted evidences. and about the purple bird, it has a real plust which looks like a red bird.

Here are the removed evidences

Smugglers’ Plane:

No evidence that the orange bird will appear, the pigs will be crashed by the plane (It was supposed to be “In the cutscene, the angry birds saved blu and jewel. and then they say goodbye to rio. then they got back to their home. and then marcel’s plane crashes. and the pigs will appear), angry birds world traveler is a fan-made idea in abn.

Wreck the Halls:

the next episode is sweetey disaster.

Mighty Eale:

An unlimited time. (limited time means, its for a short time. the app store said “Top in-app purchases: Unlimited use of the Mighty Eagle for $o.99)

why would someone delete evidences?

Rank: Sling God with 28500 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

The purple bird is 100% false.

We know the final cutscene of Rio, and yes the pigs are lurking in the background. The pigs don’t crash the plane, nor are they “crashed by the plane” whatever that means. And yes, Angry Birds World Traveler is a concept created by AngeyBirdsNest…. I wrote it.

There is absolutely no evidence that the next Season is Valentine’s Day, let alone some ridiculous title like “Sweetey Disaster”.

The Mighty Eagle is a 1-time in-app purchase that can be used
– once per hour on levels not yet passed
– unlimited on levels passed

Please do not post information from AB Wiki on this site. We post legitimate material, not fan-created hokum.

I think they should add a new year version of angry birds and a fireworks bird that explodes and releases fires on the ground cause I think hey haven’t made a angry birds version for new year… Just SUGGESTING!… But I think Rovio should continue the great work they have started on angry birds… I hope there’s more seasons to come… anyways MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR to all.
