Beyblade Burst weekend premieres; Yo-Kai Watch confusion

Poster Image 2-1For the most part, what was expected to happen on Teletoon on Saturday happened: the third season of Transformers: Robots in Disguise began its global debut and Beyblade Burst had its English language premiere. However, there was an unexpected twist on Friday that caught us off guard: the mystery episode Yo-Kai Watch had been replaced with an episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and that is what aired. It seems that was just a special welcoming for the series on Teletoon, as their schedule has Yo-Kai Watch slotted in for Saturday at 2PM. Still no idea on which episode will air, though!

On Saturday, Teletoon’s web schedule updated to finally provide episode titles for Beyblade Burst. Yesterday’s episode was called “Let’s Go! Valtryek!” but there was a surprise. What I had initially assumed would be a Sunday encore turned out to be listed as episode 2, “Kerbeus: Guard Dog of the Underworld!”. Yeah, so tune in to Teletoon at 3PM to catch it. Episode 3, “Blast Off! Rush Launch!” is set for next Saturday, so no repeats. Continue reading

Beyblade Burst listed for September 10th debut on Teletoon [Updated 9/4/2016]


A number of TV listings services are indicating that Teletoon will premiere the latest generation of Beyblade, Beyblade Burst, on September 10th at 3PM. Will it actually premiere on the date, or will it pull a Yo-Kai Watch? Only time will tell. (See below)

Beyblade Burst is the first entry in the franchise to not be licensed by Toronto’s Nelvana, and is subsequently the first entry to not have its English voice work recorded in the city. Instead, distributor Sunrights has chosen Vancouver’s Ocean Media to handle the production. It’s also the first Beyblade to not air on YTV in Canada, but that’s not exactly a surprise.

Family Gets CHRGD Up, While Yo-Kai Watch’s Canadian Debut Is Pushed Back A Week [Updated 10/4/2015]

Original title: “Sonic Boom gets CHRGD with Yo-Kai Watch’s delay.” I dropped it because I wanted people to understand what I was talking about.

Despite Zap2it and pretty much every other listings site saying so, Yo-Kai Watch won’t be premiering on Teletoon this weekend. The channel’s official schedule lists the 32nd episode of Hot Wheels: Battle Force 5 in the 2PM Saturday slot. A press release from franchise creator Level-5 confirms the Canadian premiere for October 10th in the same time slot. Continue reading

Yo-Kai Watch listed for October 3rd premiere on Teletoon


Zap2it and other on-screen TV guides have listed a new addition to Teletoon’s Saturday afternoon lineup, and it’s the Japanese sensation Yo-Kai Watch! Finding itself on the back third of an unbranded Saturday action block, Level-5’s story about a world of mischievous monsters is set for an October 3rd premiere at 2PM EDT.

So, what is Yo-Kai Watch? Dentsu Entertainment, the show’s western handler, describes it as the following:

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


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.
