Ending A 16 Year Run On YTV, Pokémon Heads To Teletoon

It looks like Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal‘s Teletoon premiere was foreshadowing something yet to come. Ending a run that started in 1998, YTV has pulled Pokémon and the rest of its anime programming from its lineup. This includes shows like Beyraiderz, Digimon Fusion, B-Daman Crossfire and the aforementioned Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal. That would usually be bad news but along with Power Rangers: Super Megaforce, most of those shows are moving to Teletoon. Continue reading

Teletoon’s Fall 2013 highlights features super heroes and annoying oranges

Annoying-Orange-Million-ClonesThis could be the final time I write up a preview of Teletoon’s Fall highlights separately. Surprisingly that may not have anything to do with my general indifference towards the Canadian children’s networks. Some of you may be aware that Astral Media, 50% co-owner of the Teletoon related networks (Teletoon, Teletoon Retro, Cartoon Network Canada and their French feeds) is in the midst of being purchased by Bell Media. As a result of this sale Astral will be selling their 50% share in the Teletoon related businessess to Corus Entertainment, the company that owns the other 50% of the networks. Corus also owns YTV, Treehouse, and Nickelodeon Canada with their press releases typically handled all under a “Corus Kids” umbrella rather than channel specific programming highlights. Assuming Corus integrates the Teletoon networks under that brand they might just be included with the others in the future. Then again Teletoon at Night, and Adult Swim feature some very non-child friendly programming …

Teletoon greenlights new Inspector Gadget series

cgy500108241_high21

DHX Media and Teletoon have announced that a new Inspector Gadget animated series will be airing on the Canadian animation station as early as late 2014. Little has been revealed about the show other than the fact that it’ll be animated with CG visuals. While it appears Gadget’s nemesis Dr. Claw will be tossed aside for his nephew, and Gadget’s niece Penny will be aged up a few years the show aims to stay true to its roots according to Alan Gregg, Teletoon’s director of original content. Here’s the full plot synopsis from the press release:

MAD Agents, look out! Criminals, beware! Bystanders … take cover! Inspector Gadget is back to battle Dr. Claw with all-new gadgets – and all-new gadget-related chaos. But the loveable, bumbling, accidentally-destructive Inspector is not alone in the fight to take down MAD. His ever trusty police-dog, Brain, is still by his side and he’s getting extra crime-fighting help from his new partner, Inspector-in-training Penny. With MAD more powerful than ever and with the arrival of Dr. Claw’s evil-genius (and totally crush-worthy) nephew, Penny and Brain will need to use every ounce of their training to keep the world safe from Dr. Claw … and Gadget.

Thundercats 2011 picked up by Teletoon, sneak peek this Friday

Despite the fact that by this point, Studio 4C and Warner Brothers Animation’s Thundercats reboot has already been canceled Teletoon have announced that they’ve picked up the 26 episode series. A special sneak peek this Friday, November 16 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT. The show isn’t scheduled for a broadcast within the rest of November, so expect a December start date at the earliest. This acquisition isn’t exactly shocking news given Teletoon airs pretty much everything WBA produces, and Teletoon Retro has already aired the original series. Teletoon’s just a little late to the party is all. Continue reading

The Teletoon family of networks announce their Fall 2012 highlights

It’s that time of year again where I make a big fuss about little things! Teletoon and its related sister channels announced their Fall 2012 lineup yesterday. As per the norm I’ll go through some highlights for each network/major block and then offer my opinion on the situation as a whole. We’ll start off with the network that started it all, Teletoon: Continue reading

Toonami’s back, but what does that mean for us?

As American anime fans have probably heard by now, [adult swim] is bringing back Toonami as a rebrand for their Saturday night 12AM-6AM action block after a successful April’s Fools prank. The new Toonami will begin May 26, with a slightly disappointing lineup (which is certainly subject to change) consisting of older [adult swim] programming repackaged with a new brand. But that may just be for the interim as their press release reads this: Continue reading

Teletoon and Turner partner up to bring Cartoon Network to Canada

First it was Nickelodeon Canada, then it was Disney XD Canada, and now it’s the long awaited – Cartoon Network Canada. Teletoon and Turner Broadcasting have announced a brand new partnership that will see Teletoon and its sister channels become the exclusive home to Cartoon Network, and [adult swim] programming, alongside 2000 half hours of classic Cartoon Network, and [adult swim] content.
