A new animated series, called Sheriff Callie’s Wild West, stars Mandy Moore (Disney’s Tangled) as the voice of Callie, a lovable Calico cat sheriff who keeps the peace in her frontier town of Nice and Friendly Corners using her noodle lasso and cowgirl know-how.
Whether teaching her trusty deputy Peck (a woodpecker voiced by High School Musical‘s Lucas Grabeel) a lesson about good sportsmanship through a game of horseshoes, or helping her horse Sparky regain his confidence after he slips and falls during a barrel race, Callie always comes to the aid of her townsfolk, and in the process, imparts lessons about good morals, manners and social ethics for kids aged 2-7.
Disney Parks Blog caught up with Moore when she visited Disneyland park last week, hanging out in Frontierland (of course), and I’m pretty sure we can all agree that things are about to get real adorable ’round these parts.
The series is available for verified viewers on WATCHDisneyJunior.com and the WATCH Disney Junior app for smartphones and tablets NOW, and will premiere on Disney Junior channels and programming blocks around the world in 2014.
