Dinosaur King joins KidsClick
Sinclair Broadcast Group’s KidsClick is adding a new title to the lineup. Sega and Sunrise’s Dinosaur King anime series will join the block, while Super 4 is set to leave.
From Monday, February 5, 2018, the weekday schedule will look like this:
6:00 AM – Rocket Monkeys
6:30 AM – Dinosaur King
7:00 AM – Angry Birds
7:30 AM – Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir
8:00 AM – Winx Club
8:30 AM – Max Steel
Dinosaur King takes over the spot currently occupied by Max Steel, which has now been pushed back to remove Super 4 from the lineup.
The weekend lineup will remain looking like this:
7:00 AM – Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures
7:30 AM – Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures
8:00 AM – Angry Birds
8:30 AM – Pink Panther and Pals
9:00 AM – Pink Panther and Pals
9:30 AM – Team Hot Wheels
KidsClick fans have probably noticed that Zak Storm was dropped from the lineup on January 7th. Not to worry, the show, alongside other former titles like Scary Larry, Super 4 and RoboCop: Alpha Commando are still available to stream on the website/app with every currently airing show.
Set in the present time, Dinosaur King follows a group of twelve-year olds, who proudly call themselves the “D-Team,” as they dash around the world in an unforgettable global race against the nefarious Alpha Gang to discover the secrets that will bring dinosaurs back to life. The dinosaurs are brought to the present in incredible, exciting battles that colorfully come to life with CGI animation. This unique animation style of Dinosaur King — CGI animation combined with traditional cel animation — creates a rich and textured perspective, especially during exciting dinosaur battle scenes.
The Alpha Gang desperately tries to keep the D-Team from discovering dinosaur secrets that are scattered in any number of global locations that kid viewers worldwide are easily able to identify with. The stories move into another dimension, but only if the D-Team is able to find the time machine the Alpha Gang hid years ago.
Fast paced story telling punctuated with clever comedy combined with non-stop fantasy adventure ensures a fun and wonderful kids viewing experience.
Inspired by Sega’s arcade game of the same name, Dinosaur King originally debuted in Japan on TV Asahi in February 2007. The first 49 episode season was then followed up with a 30 episode sequel the year later. 4Kids Entertainment dubbed the show into English and ran it on their various Saturday morning children’s blocks between 2007 and 2010. The series has since spawned countless pieces of merchandise and has launched in over 100 countries. Dinosaur King is currently represented by Lacey Entertainment.
KidsClick airs nationally in the United States on This TV and select Sinclair-owned local stations. It runs seven days a week. On weekdays, you can catch it between 6:00 to 9:00 AM and on weekends 7:00 to 10:00 AM eastern/pacific. Do note, however, that the local stations are free to air KidsClick on their own schedule, so it’s best to consult a TV guide! The block can also be streamed live through its website and mobile app, with all shows additionally available free through video-on-demand.
