Disney Junior ordered a second season of the animated series “T.O.T.S.”—ahead of the series debut, which was Friday, June 14—on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW.

The comedy follows the adventures of best friends Pip and Freddy, a tenacious penguin and a kind-hearted flamingo, who are the only non-stork delivery birds in-training at Tiny Ones Transport Service (T.O.T.S.). Designed for kids age 2-7, “T.O.T.S.” stories suggest themes of positively interacting with and nurturing others while celebrating each other’s differences. Every episode has an original song and the recurring delivery anthem “Bringing This Baby Home.”

The series voice cast includes Vanessa Williams (ABC’s “Ugly Betty”) as Captain Beakman, Megan Hilty (Broadway’s “Noises Off” and “Wicked”) as K.C. the Koala, Jet Jurgensmeyer (“Last Man Standing”) as Pip the Penguin and Christian J. Simon (Disney Channel’s “Sydney to the Max”) as Freddy the Flamingo.

Each episode features two 11-minute stories that highlight the use of creative thinking, teamwork and problem solving to model for young viewers that there is more than one way to achieve a goal.
