“This is our first series to come out of our animated shorts program and we are very proud and excited to bring it to our audience. Steve and Gary have created a fresh, fun cartoon with great characters and an infectious music backdrop that we think will have kids laughing and bouncing with each episode.” - Russell Hicks, President, Content Development and Production, Nickelodeon


Breadwinners is created by Steve Borst (Teen Titans Go!, MAD) and Gary “Doodles” DiRaffaele (MAD, Metalocalypse), who was discovered from Nickelodeon’s 2012 Animated Shorts Program - designed to identify and develop new animation talent and provide a platform for new content for kids. This team of emerging and innovative artists delivers a funny and original series for this new generation of kids. With vast inspirations from classic buddy-comedy animation, and various current gaming, internet and music cultures, this innovative new show introduces the next duck duo who always keep their beaks up and their heads boppin’.




Throughout the series, SwaySway, the upbeat leader of the flock, and Buhdeuce, the loyal booty-shakin’ co-pilot, go on crazy adventures together. From eating a loaf of Stank Bread and getting lost in the bread mines, to record-breaking attempts for mostbread deliveries in one day, nothing will stop this duo from making the delivery while shaking their tail feathers.




During the series premiere, “Thug Loaf,” when SwaySway and Buhdeuce have to deliver bread to the bad part of Duck Town, they accidentally lock their keys in the Rocket Van and have to befriend a gang of Biker Ducks for help. Next in “Mine All Mine,” SwaySway and Buhdeuce meet the most righteous dude in the planet, the Bread Maker.
