Disney has announced that four new episodes of the animated series, “Hamster & Gretel” are going to be released on Disney+ in the United States on Wednesday, 15th November 2023.
The music-filled “Hamster & Gretel” introduces Kevin and younger sister Gretel, who are about to be bestowed superpowers by space aliens. But something goes awry, and it’s Gretel and her pet hamster (named Hamster) who suddenly have new abilities. Now, protective older brother Kevin must figure out how to work with both Gretel and her pet Hamster to protect their city from mysterious dangers.
The four episodes being added to Disney+ include:
Nano A Nano/The Unnatural History of Dr. Medusasaurus PH.D. – On a school trip to a robot factory, Gretel encounters a nanobot; Gretel and Bailey meet a strange paleontologist at a museum.
No Sprain, No Gain/Finding Professor EX – Kevin is stuck at home with a sprained ankle as the rest of the gang tries to stop a strange jewel thief; when Professor Exclamation goes missing, Gretel and Nordle try to find him.
Bayou Barb/The Great Pillow War (2023)
Bayou Barb/The Great Pillow War – The Grant Gomez family goes on a bayou vacation where they encounter a local legend; Gretel and Kevin battle it out in a huge pillow fight.
Shush Hour/I Was a Teenage Mad Scientist – Gretel does a school project on herself while Kevin and Hamster stop a librarian villain; Professor Exclamation attends his high school reunion.
Starring in the series is newcomer Meli Povenmire as Gretel; Michael Cimino (“Love, Victor”) as Gretel’s older brother, Kevin; Beck Bennett (“SNL”) as Gretel’s pet hamster, Hamster; Joey King (“Kissing Booth”) as her tech-savvy cousin, Fred; Matt Jones (“Bob Hearts Abishola”) as the siblings’ easygoing father, Dave; and Carolina Ravassa (“Maya and the Three”) as their charismatic mother, Carolina.
Created by Dan Povenmire (of the Emmy(R) Award-winning global hit series “Phineas and Ferb”), “Hamster and Gretel” is produced by Disney Television Animation and is inspired by Povenmire’s relationship with his significantly younger sister. Brandi Young (“Milo Murphy’s Law”) serves as producer; Joanna Hausmann (“Bill Nye Saves the World”) will serve as co-producer/story editor, and Dorothea Gerassimova (“Mira, Royal Detective”) is the art director.
The previous 23 episodes of the first season of “Hamster & Gretel” are available to stream now on Disney+, and we should expect the final batch of new episodes of the first season to arrive on Disney+ within the next few months, once they’ve debuted on the Disney Channel.
