Kids’ WB! leaps to renew 5

Weblet books popular ani series

NEW YORK — Kids’ WB! has booked five of its most successful shows for another season.

The WB weblet has given early season pickups to “Pokemon: Master Quest,” “Jackie Chan Adventures,” “X-Men: Evolution,” “The Mummy: Secrets of the Medjai” and “Rescue Heroes: Global Response Team” for the 2002-2003 season.

The five animated series consistently outperform the broadcast competish among kids 2-11, kids 6-11 and boys 2-11. For fourth quarter 2001, Kids’ WB! led the Saturday morning broadcast competition with seven of the top 10 programs among kids 6-11, boys 2-11 and boys 6-11 and took six of the top 10 broadcast program spots among kids 2-11.

Going into its fifth season, “Pokemon” comes to Kids’ WB! from 4Kids Prods., which recently arranged to lease Fox’s Saturday morning timeslot beginning next fall. But 4Kids didn’t have the option to move the hit show to Fox since Kids’ WB! has the rights to the series for as long as it wants.

With 52 new episodes, “Pokemon” will air six days a week on Kids’ WB!. The WB has ordered 13 episodes of “Jackie Chan,” “X-Men,” “The Mummy” and “Rescue Heroes.”
