Have you heard the good news? Cartoons are coming back to weekend AND weekday mornings on US network television! KidsClick is a brand new block of programming that you’ll be able to watch on TV and online. We here at Toonbarn are pretty excited for its launch and managed to grab a list of shows you can expect to see:
- Max Steel
- Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir
- Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures
- Pink Panther and Pals
- RoboCop: The Animated Series
- Rocket Monkeys
- Sonic X
- Super 4
- Zak Storm: Super Pirate
Remember, this is a preliminary lineup of shows. Some might air on day-1, some might air a little later. There might even be more series! The original press release stated KidsClick would include both long and short-form content. So far, we’ve only caught wind of the longer ones.
Looking at the lineup, there’s admittedly not a lot of new stuff. The Fox Box/4Kids TV/The CW4Kids/Toonzai/Vortexx staple Sonic X returns to US television. Cable shows, like Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir, Super 4 and Rocket Monkeys get another lease on life. They’ve even managed to dig up RoboCop: The Animated Series, which is probably related to the fact the franchise is owned by MGM, one of KidsClick’s partners.
The real standout is Zak Storm: Super Pirate. It’s the next series from Zagtoon, the creators of the aforementioned Miraculous, and Man of Action, the team behind Ben 10, Big Hero 6: The Series, Ultimate Spiderman and so many more! The first thirteen episodes debuted internationally earlier in the year, but this marks its US debut.
KidsClick will premiere on ThisTV and select Sinclair-owned broadcast channels Saturday, July 1st. The block runs weekdays from 6:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. and on weekends weekends 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. ET/PT.
