Beyblade Burst Evolution on Teletoon this weekend [Updated 11/4/2017]

By “next month,” it seems Sunrights really meant the next weekend. Multiple on-air Teletoon promos have surfaced claiming the channel will premiere Beyblade Burst Evolution on Saturday, November 4th at 2:30PM EST. The channel’s online schedule is currently listing a rerun of the tenth episode from the first season in that slot, so we’ll have to see how that shakes out. Continue reading

Odds & Ends: Turning Mecard + Black Jack 2004 dubs, Beyblade Burst Evolution this fall [Updated 6/4/2017]

Even Black Jack wouldn’t be able to save Mecard’s English dub.

Turning Mecard premiered on Teletoon this afternoon … and I’m astonished at what I’ve seen. Given the show’s international roll out appears to begin with Canada, I had assumed this was going to be a Canadian production. Maybe I’m vastly overestimating my countrymen, but I refuse to believe this was created here. I can’t believe this was produced anywhere in North America. That is not hyperbole. This is Turning Mecard’s English dub:

Odds & Ends: Beyblade Burst in Quebec, Transformers: Combiner Force on Teletoon

Following in the footsteps of the two prior generations of the franchise, Beyblade Burst is heading to Quebec thanks to Télétoon. The series is scheduled to debut this Saturday, May 6th at 12:30PM. The dub, which is based on the English version produced by Vancouver’s Ocean Media, was recorded at SDI Media’s Belgium studio. It premiered in France on Canal J on March 11th. Beyblade Burst replaces Yo-Kai Watch on Télétoon’s unofficial Saturday afternoon action block, which also includes Power Rangers: Dino Super Charge and Pokémon The Series: XYZ. Continue reading

MIPTV, the four-day Cannes television trade show is just weeks away and as companies prepare to hawk their latest productions to merchandisers and broadcasters the world over, news of what will be available is slowly starting to trickle out. Continue reading

Beyblade Burst premieres return on Teletoon, Amazon Prime eyes Canadian launch + Major Theatrical Update


So far, Beyblade Burst has had a bumpy ride in Canada. It premiered to little pre-release promotion on September 10th and then immediate confusion as the second episode premiered the next day (even the official social media handler thought it would be a re-run). Then, after four weekends and eight episodes, debuts abruptly ended on October 2nd as the show began a repeat run on both Teletoon and Disney XD Canada. We’ll never know what happened, but some solid guesses would be that airing two episodes a week of a show that (as of October 2nd) had only run twenty-six episodes in Japan probably makes things difficult for the English production team. Or, maybe Sunrights and Hasbro wanted to make sure we didn’t get too far ahead of their pending US run.

Either way, that all looks to be in the past as Teletoon’s schedule is listing a return to premieres with episode nine, “Wyvron in the Way,” set for November 26th at 3PM. Neither TV Passport nor Teletoon’s schedule list a premiere for Sunday; with a repeat of episode seven expected to run. I guess that’s the end of double premieres. Unless Teletoon pulls some holiday pre-emptions, Canada should still be ahead of the US by three episodes after Disney XD’s premiere event.

Canadian Animation News: Rainmaker no more and the “new” Nelvana


2016 has been a big year for Rainmaker. The Vancouver-based animation studio launched the direct-to-video revival Open Season: Scared Silly and the theatrical adaptation of Ratchet & Clank this spring, continued work on the Bob The Builder and Barbie franchises, and continues prep for the upcoming ReBoot: The Guardian Code TV series. 2017 is set up to be a landmark year; not only as more of those projects come to fruition, but because Rainmaker itself will undergo a transformation. That transformation sees the addition of two new partners, an executive reshuffling and a new name: WOW! Unlimited Media. Continue reading
