First Cartoon Network show (minus Hanna-Barbara, Warner Bros. Animation and MGM) to air on CBBC.


Wasn't The Cramp Twins Cartoon Network?

Yes, it was. But none of the other recent shows have aired on the channel. Adventure Time, Craig of the Creek, Teen Titans Go!, DC Super Hero Girls, The Tom & Jerry Show and the two recent Scooby-Doo series have aired on CITV.

Also very interesting scheduling for it:

Episodes 1-5 will air in a row after Blue Peter next Thursday from 5.30-6.30.

Episodes 6-7 will air on Xmas Eve 5.00-5.30.

Episode 8-10 will air on 29th, 30th and 31st December at 4.10.

Then back to the 5.00-5.30 on New Years Eve for episodes 11 and 12. (The same day episode 10 airs at 4.10)

Overall, the show looks like one of those cringey, cheesy animations with jabby voices and preachy plots, but I’m willing to have my mind changed.

I've actually heard it's quite good.

No, to be honest, it is quite good,

You need more Sky/Virgin in your life.

It's a Cartoon Network show that I'm a fan of. Panda's my favourite.
Also the show is getting a spin-off next year, with the 3 bears as cubs.

They have a big sculpture of them in the lobby of CNN Centre in Atlanta, or at least they did last time I was there.

Not that anything can beat that late 90s era of Cartoon Network. Cow & Chicken, Dexter's Lab, Powerfuff Girls (original, not the reboot) etc.

CBBC are going to be launching a entirely new schedule in January. Here's a full view:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/schedules/p00fzl9r/2021/w01

Some of the notable changes include:

1. The Faves at 5 strand looks to have been ditched or re-invented. Operation Ouch and Blue Peter will now air at 5pm and they're not dramas, which is what the strand was meant for.
2. Another Cartoon Network show, Summer Camp Island, will launch in the same week.
3. Tracy Beaker will be re-run for the first time in 5 years, with the 15 minute versions making their first appearance in around 6 years.
4. A new show will be aired in the 7pm-9pm, with the next series of Heirs of the Night airing on Mondays at 7.25pm. The first series has been airing on Wednesdays at 5pm over the past few weeks.
5. Blue Peter moves back to 5pm, after being moved from there in April 2017.

To be honest and with all due respect I'm half-inclined to say who cares. Most of us here are well over the target audience for the channel so far as the programmes go - and unless CBBC is getting a shiny new look (or has had a major breakdown on air) or some other notable presentation related event has happened, then we're probably not too bothered about the rest of the channel on here.

Thanks a lot, Debbie Downer.

How rude. There's plenty of discussion about channel scheduling on this forum, and the poster wrote about this in a specific thread about the channel in question.

Sometimes it's perhaps better not to comment on topics you're not interested in.

I would respond to this, Neil, similarly respectfully, and with deference to the fact that you're a much more long-term member of this site than I am, by saying that I think it's really poor form to post that kind of comment.
People like different things. I have no interest in a wide array of the threads on this site but I don't try to shut down the discussion, I just skip over what doesn't concern me.
If you have no interest in CBBC, then you can probably safely assume that the CBBC thread is not going to be your cup of tea, however, the people who are interested should be freely allowed to have their discussion.

Yes, you may not be the target demographic and I presume most of the people that actively contribute in this thread are too. But that doesn't mean that we're not allowed to discuss it. Nobody is forcing you to be in this thread and I don't see why we should have to stop speaking about it because you don't want to. For example: I don't watch Coronation Street, I have no intention to start watching it and unless something interesting happens presentation-wise (e.g. the new Argos sponsorships), I don't intend to contribute.

Moving back on topic now and I think it's quite an interesting change. The "Faves at 5" slot has been quite messy since it was launched. Originally it was for any type of show, then for dramas (yet non-dramas made it on) then it's back to variety now. I wish they'd pick something and stick to it. None of this musical chairs rubbish.
As for the reintroduction of TSoTB episodes, I'm not surprised. They've been talking about old shows quite frequently on their social media outlets and advertising them on iPlayer + reintroducing other old shows such as Trapped! and The Slammer.
