Dolly Parton is spreading her wings as a cartoon chicken named Nolene. She’ll make a special appearance on the children’s animated series, “Lily’s Driftwood Bay”.  Parton’s character Nolene appears on an upcoming episode of the children’s animated series, Lily’s Driftwood Bay. With her trademark sense of humor, she bragged about Nolene’s celebrity status in the animal kingdom. “Nolene is a very famous chicken, maybe one of the most famous chickens there ever was,” she told Billboard.com.
She added, “I think it’s important to develop the imagination of children. They need to learn to dream because if they can dream, they can make things happen.” Parton has long taken an interest in fostering creativity and imagination in children. Her non-profit Imagination Library helps children develop a love of reading by providing them with books.

The show airs on the pre-school network Sprout.
