Produced and distributed globally by Herschend Entertainment Studios, Chuggington is an animated series set in the “traintastic” world of modern and colorful train engines. The series follows the humorous, educational, and contemporary adventures of three young trainee engines: eager Wilson, daring Koko, and loyal Brewster, all of whom learn to ride the rails of life. The young trio of locomotives engage with a diverse cast of characters to learn important lessons, like teamwork, listening, perseverance, patience, self-confidence, and building friendships.
Chuggington, enjoyed by adventure loving preschoolers, is currently airing on A-list broadcast networks and key streaming platforms in over 178 countries.
