Disney XD to Launch a PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures Marathon
According to a recent announcement from 41Entertainment, Disney XD will be airing a Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures Marathon this coming Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1st. Dubbed the “Back-to-Back Pac Attack,” the marathon will run from 8:30 AM all the way to 4:30 PM on Saturday, and from 12:00PM to 8:00 PM on Sunday.
Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures is a CG-animated TV series based on Namco Bandai Games’ Pac-Man video game franchise. It follows the titular round-shaped mascot and his friends Cylindria and Spiral, as they help protect the Pac-World from the threat of Ghosts.
Allen Bohbot, CEO of 41e, states, “It is terrific to run a weekend marathon for this most prized character at such an early stage of our process. We have watched PAC-MAN become more and more familiar to children across the country and the world, and that feeling is indescribable. I know it will be recorded on my TV!”
Avi Arad, Executive Producer adds, “This is a wonderful opportunity to fully display many of the episodes and to give kids of all ages a chance to watch them all together. I love this idea.”
Shin Unozawa, Chief Operating Officer of NBGI said, “We are very happy about this programming strategy.”
