Club Penguin: The TV Series is a reality comedy TV series based off of life on Club Penguin Island. It first aired on the Penguin Network in the USA on October 24, 2012. It involves Peng Guin, a fun-loving aqua penguin, his girlfriend, Gloria Walker, and Fluffy the Puffle, as they go on adventures around the island. 26 episodes are ordered for the first season.
It is by the same penguins who created Willy and Kody, and received so many positive reviews that its slogan became PENGUIN NETWORK'S BEST SHOW. In April 2013, it also started airing on Penguin TV as repeats.
Club Penguin Island is the life of a party for Peng, his girlfriend Gloria, and his puffle Fluffy! Everyday, the group does something totally strange, ridiculous, and hilarious, but they always have fun in the end! Whether they are exploring or fighting bat penguins, life is never boring for this threesome.
The concept for a reality series based on life on Club Penguin Island was pitched in late 2011 by David Tennyson, after his success on Willy and Kody. Penguin Network enjoyed this fresh new concept, and the search began for the penguins whom the show would focused on. An area was put up on Penguin Network's website, where penguins could put audition videos up of them doing fun stuff on the island. Eventually, Peng Guin, Gloria Walker, and Fluffy the Puffle were picked for the lead roles. In a press release issued on July 31, 2012, Penguin Network president Flip Per commented with this.
"We are extremely excited to welcome Club Penguin: The TV Series to our wide range of programming. We are sure that everyone will appreciate the humor and morals presented in this show. I think it seriously is one of the best shows we have ever produced!"
In a Club Penguin Times interview in August 2012, it was revealed that the reason the show was made was to attract more tourists to the island. Attendees of the Penguin Network panel at Penguin Con 2012 in South Pole City got a first glimpse at the pilot episode of the series, Puffle Park, and a Q&A sessions with the creator and cast was also held. Winners of an exclusive raffle could also win a code to upload the first two episodes on IceTunes, and plushes of Peng, Gloria and Fluffy were handed out. With the new show being heavily promoted across the USA, including a bus tour, it might turn out to be very good.
On October 24, 2012, Club Penguin: The TV Series was aired for the first time at 8:30 PM, on Penguin Network, and was broadcasted to all areas of the USA. New episodes have continued to air on Fridays. On November 15, 2012, while Herbert P. Bear ruled the entire Club Penguin Island, as part of Operation: Blackout, he renamed the show Club Herbert: The TV Series. All episodes had the new logo in the theme song, and the lines in the show that said "Club Penguin" were changed to "Club Herbert". This kept going until Herbert was defeated and control of Club Penguin was regained, therefore the show was returned to normal.
On April 20, 2013, repeats of the show started airing on Penguin TV. In November 2013, the final episode of season one was aired, and it received the most views in the history of any Penguin Network programming. The show will resume with season two in December 2013 with a special 45 minute Christmas episode.
On December 20, 2013, Penguin Network announced that a third season is in the works. David Tennyson also said that the first season three episode will be a one-hour special.
