SINGAPORE, 15 JULY 2016 – Get ready to cheer on your favourite Nickelodeon stars as the 2016 Nickelodeon Slime Cup kicks off with “The Slime Cup Totally Awesome Team Choosing Challenge” premiering on 18th July at 4.30pm (TH/WIB) and 5.30pm (HK/MY/PH/SG) on Nickelodeon. This four-day on-air event features hour-long specials with host Kel Mitchell (Game Shakers) and sixteen of Nickelodeon’s live-action stars who, one by one, will be sorted into Teams Blue, Purple, Red or Yellow to compete for the Slime Cup trophy. Each day, the special will be accompanied by two Bella and The Bulldogs episodes, one of which will be an episode premiere. The episode premieres will air as follows:

 

  • Monday, 18th July: Bad Grandma

Bella meets her hero when volunteering at a retirement home, but worries that the woman is not who she thought she was. Pepper and Newt face off about decorating a nursery.

 

  • Tuesday, 19th July: Accept No Substitutes

When Coach gets sick, the Bulldogs take advantage of the substitute by not working hard. Suddenly they find themselves underprepared for their upcoming game against a much improved opponent.

  • Wednesday, 20th July: The Outlaw Bella Dawson

Bella gets a long-awaited message from Charlie that would take their relationship to the next level, but before she can answer she is forced to spend the day with Zach Barnes, confusing her feelings even further.

 

  • Thursday, 21st July: Party of Three

Bella musters up the courage to ask Zach on a date, only to have him bring a surprise along with him. Troy and Sawyer introduce their favorite movie series to Newt, who does not see it the way they do.

 

Kids can register via www.slimecup.com to be a part of the action with the all-new interactive “Slime Cup Games” digital game, a collection of sports-themed, mini games featuring Nickelodeon’s popular animated characters. Gameplay via the “Slime Cup Games” interactive game earns kids Slime points, which automatically go towards their team’s tally as well as their individual standing within their local leaderboard for the chance at winning their very own Slime Cup trophy and medal. Slime points are also redeemable for digital in-game rewards at the Nickelodeon SlimeStand marketplace.
