The Webs: ABC to revamp kids block

Alphabet to have four half-hour toons

HOLLYWOOD — ABC will revamp its “Disney’s One Saturday Morning” kids block on Dec. 9, scrapping the lineup’s interstitial elements in favor of four, rather than three, half-hour cartoons.

The network has also put on hold plans to add a live broadcast during the block that would have emphasized interactive elements, guest celebrities and musical performances. Up until now, “One Saturday Morning’s” three series — “Disney’s Recess,” “Disney’s Teacher’s Pet” and “Disney’s the Weekenders” — floated around the two-hour block depending on the length of the interstitial elements (usually animated or live-action shorts). Newcomer “Disney’s Lloyd in Space” joins the lineup early in 2001. Until then, ABC will double-run “Recess.”
