In the United States of America, Pig Goat Banana Cricket premiered new episodes on this channel from its debut on July 16, 2015 up until February 20, 2016, the premiere date of "It's Time to Slumber Party". Following this, there was a 7-month hiatus. Likely due to low ratings and negative reception from critics and viewers, new episodes of Pig Goat Banana Cricket were shown on Nicktoons from September 26, 2016 onward.
