NEW YORK, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Nickelodeon says "Peter Rabbit," its animated pre-school series based on Beatrix Potter's classic books, will debut on U.S. television Feb. 19.

"This beloved bunny has touched families for many generations and Nickelodeon continues his legacy with brand-new Peter Rabbit stories for them to enjoy," Teri Weiss, executive vice president of production and development for Nickelodeon Preschool, said in a statement Thursday.

"This series captures the spirit of Potter's timeless books, while adding high stakes adventures to illustrate that with determination and friendship, you can overcome even the toughest of obstacles."

The network said the show will encourage pre-schoolers to learn problem-solving, interpersonal skills, self-efficacy and resilience, while also fostering an interest in and respect for nature.
