A new animated series on Nickelodeon, “Wonder Pets” sends Tuck Turtle,  Ming-Ming Duckling and Linny the Guinea Pig on adventures throughout the world to save animals in trouble.  And they rescue the animals in song!  Every episode is a twelve-minute operetta written by some of musical theater’s finest.  The first episodes air on Friday 3/3, and JRB’s episode (written with Larry Hochman), “Save the Unicorn!” premieres at 12 noon that day.  The whole show is unspeakably adorable.  Want more info?  Here’s the Daily News article about the show’s launch.
