There’s some familiar voices riding into Nice and Friendly Corners this Fall as the first Western for preschoolers, SHERIFF CALLIE’S WILD WEST, welcomes some truly rockin’ guest stars. Season two finds comedian KEEGAN-MICHAEL KEY saddling-up as a card shark rooster named Phineas Foolery; Rock and roll legends IGGY POP and HENRY ROLLINS as the Silverado Brothers, a pair of skating ermine silver thieves; and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter CHRIS ISAAK as singing horse bandit Johnny Strum. RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS bassist FLEA is back, reprising his role as the Milk Bandit, a thieving wildcat set on stealing all of the milk in Nice and Friendly Corners. The season two premiere takes place SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1 (8:00 a.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel
“In the season two premiere episode titled ‘The Good, The Bad & the Yo-Yo / Boots or Consequences,’ a yo-yo twirling bandit arrives in Nice and Friendly Corners and learns an important lesson about forgiveness, and Callie imparts some words of wisdom to Toby about returning things to their rightful owners.”
