Cartoon’s kid-stuff Fridays

NEW ORLEANS – On the programming front, a two-hour block of WB’s children’s programming will be carried for three straight Fridays on sister company Turner Broadcasting’s cable web Cartoon Network beginning Jan. 31.

“This is the beginning of an amazing opportunity,” Jean MacCurdy, president of Warner Bros. Television Animation, said Wednesday at NATPE. “Cartoon Network is a terrific forum to promote our kids’ WB programming to a primetime audience where we don’t compete for kid viewers.”

WB also said the animated version of “Batman” will launch on the netlet this fall. For the previous five years, “Batman” has been airing on the Fox Children’s Network.
