Braving The Coronavirus Pandemic — “We’re All In This In This Together”

According to Bell, thriving during social isolation and a global pandemic is a matter of unity.

“It’s so important to remember that we are all in this together,” she said, in a Nikolodean press release. “Our kids and loved ones need outlets to help them process and understand what’s going on and, most importantly, to still feel connected.” 

“I hope kids and families come away from this special feeling a little more comfortable and that they enjoy some much-needed moments of humor during this difficult time.”
