Mike the Knight - Nick Jr
Mike the Knight - A New TV Show for Little Kids on Nick Jr
Mike the Knight is very popular in our house. The animated show can be seen on Nick Jr from Feb 2012. The hero of the show is Mike, a young medieval knight-in-training.
Mike's motto is "Be a knight, do it right." In each episode Mike has some kind of quest or challenge that requires him to use his knightly skills.
Mike the Knight is a firm favorite in our house. My boys already loved knights and renaissance fairs before Mike the Knight came along. Now knightly is a commonly used adjective in our house!

About Mike the Knight
Mike the Knight is a brave young hero
The Mike the Knight TV show comes from the same company that made Bob the Builder. It has already been airing in the UK for a while. We're in the UK so we've already seen lots of episodes of Mike the Knight.
Mike the Knight is a 52 part CG-animated series for preschoolers and young children. My boys are 3.5 and 5 and it's just the right age group for them.
As parents we enjoy the show because it's a mix of educational and fun. Watch out for the Viking call - that gets a laugh every time in our house. And it's full of castles and dragons which the boys love.
Mike the Knight Characters
Other than Mike the Knight, the main characters include:
Evie: Evie is Mike's little sister and she's a Wizard-in-Training. Her spells often lead to challenges for Mike when they don't quite go to plan.
Galahad: Galahad is Mike's faithful horse.
Sparkie: Sparkie is a friendly fire-breathing dragon.
Squirt: Squirt is a little dragon, who breathes water instead of fire.
Jane and the Dragon
You might also enjoy ...
Before Mike the Knight came along, there's was Jane and the Dragon. We're also big fans of the Jane and the Dragon animated series. It's perfect for slightly older kids than Mike the Knight and has a wonderful sense of humor. Like Mike, Jane is training to be a knight. Unusually she's a girl, but she's not going to let that detail stop her!
