Kids WB! Fall Lineup Set
The Saturday morning Kids WB! block on the CW will premiere four new animated series when it kicks off its fall season on Sept. 22. Making their American network debuts, Eon Kid, Magi-Nation, Will & Dewitt and Skunk Fu! will be joined by new episodes of returning favorites The Batman, Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get A Clue!, Legion of Super Heroes, Tom and Jerry Tales and Johnny Test.

“From action and adventure to comedy and self-discovery, and animation styles running the gamut from traditional 2D to computer-generated and Flash-anime, the new Kids WB! lineup truly offers entertainment for everyone,” says Kids WB! senior VP and general manager Betsy McGowen.

The new lineup will kick off on Saturday mornings at 7 a.m. with rookie Will & Dewitt. Produced by Cookie Jar Ent., the show centers on an average kid with an endless thirst for adventure who finds a personal “life coach” in Dewitt, his shape-shifting, talking frog pal.

Magi-Nation will follow at 7:30 a.m. with the adventures of teenager Tony Jones, whose world is forever changed when he is mystically transported into a beautiful world far beyond imagination that was created millennia ago by a powerful race known as the Magi. Here Tony meets Edyn and Strag, two young Magi heroes in training, who help him battle the evil Shadow Magi with their vast collection of Dream Creatures. Produced by Cookie Jar Ent. and Korea’s Daewon Media, the 2D-aniamated series is part of a multi-platform entertainment brand that allows kids to interact with the characters and storylines online.

After an hour of Tom & Jerry Tales, viewers will get their first whiff of Skunk Fu! at 9 a.m. The series revolves around a skunk who is accidentally dropped into China by a wayward stork as a child and has to learn the ways of Kung Fu in order to defend the animals of the valley from an evil mountain dragon and his hench-monkeys. Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get A Clue! will follow at 9:30 a.m.

The 10 a.m. hour will get rolling with Eon Kid, in which an enterprising 11-year-old named Marty unexpectedly becomes the human extension of the Fist of Eon. Seemingly lost for all time, the Fist endows Marty with amazing fighting powers, but puts him at the heart of a centuries-old struggle between good and evil. Pursued by the dark armies of The General, Marty must undertakes a hero's journey into a world of battle-bots, bounty hunters, legendary warriors and humanoid bandits. The CG series is produced by Daiwon C&A Holdings Co., Design Storm Co., BRB Int’l and Manga Ent., and distributed by Starz Media.

Johnny Test will be back with new adventures at 10:30 a.m., followed by the heroic return of Legion of Super Heroes at 11:00 a.m. and The Batman at 11:30 a.m. Two more new series set to premiere in early 2008 are the eagerly awaited The Spectacular Spider-Man from Culver Ent. and World of Quest, an action-comedy based on the Komikwerks graphic novel series by Jason Kruse, and produced by Cookie Jar Ent.

SCOOBY SNACK ATTACK
KID'S cartoon heroes such as Scooby-Doo were today branded villains for promoting unhealthy snacks.

Consumer watchdog Which? claim 10 top characters are being cynically used on the packaging of products high in salt, sugar and fat.

Their report reveals three-quarters of parents feel using cartoons like Spider-Man to promote sugary or salty snacks is "irresponsible".

Nine out of 10 parents also believe characters on packaging encourages children to demand that item.

Which? say: "Take two food items. One has plain packaging, the other is bursting with pictures of a well known character. Which will a child choose? It doesn't take a genius to know most will opt for the cartoon-festooned product."

Spidey was blasted for backing sugary Nesquik Chocolate Flavour Cereal, while Scooby-Doo Mini Pizza Breadsticks were found to be high in salt.

A Which? spokesman said: "The companies which own and use these characters need to review their policies."

Marvel, who own Spider- Man, said they did not have "a specific policy" on using their characters in food marketing.

Scooby-Doo owners Warner Bros said their characters were used "in a responsible manner".
