One of the nice things about the holiday season is that cartoon networks all celebrate the occasion by airing holiday specials or holiday-themed episodes of their hit series. The Hub has recently laid their cards down on the table by revealing their exciting holiday programming plans.
Biggest news is the return of the popular Spielberg animated series Animaniacs, which went off the air last 1999. The Hub will be bringing back the Amblin/Warner Bros. show via a four-hour marathon on Christmas Eve, Monday, December 24, 4-8p ET. This will be followed by a holiday-themed musical feature called Animaniacs: Wakko’s Wish at 8 to 10 PM. Afterwards, the show will continue on the network’s regular schedule in 2013 via the Monday, 3p timeslot.
The rest of the Hub’s holiday programming slate consist of a special 8-hour lineup of holiday-themed programming on Monday, December 24 and Tuesday, December 25 highlighted by movies, specials, and series in the spirit of the season featuring a special six-episode, Christmas-themed marathon of the popular live-action series Sabrina, The Teenage Witch (7-10 a.m. ET) on Christmas morning followed by two holiday-themed television specials Atomic Betty: The No-L 9 (10-11 a.m. ET) and The Christmas Toy (11 a.m.-noon ET).
