Saban’s Kid Block Reaches 13

Saban Entertainment will introduce four series and bring back two more as part of the weekly syndicated programming block known as “The Saban Network for Kids.”

The syndicator will provide stations with two strips – the new “Samurai Pizza Cats” and the third-season entry “Saban’s VR Troopers” – and four weekly kids series for two years beginning in fall 1996.

The weeklies include two new titles: an “FCC friendly” program called “The Whywhy Family” and “Saban’s Adventures of Oliver Twist,” as well as the returning sophomore entrant “Tenko and the Guardians of the Magic.”

In addition, “Francine Pascal’s Sweet Valley High” will be back for a third season.

Overall, the 15-year-old company announced it will increase its kidvid lineup from nine shows this season to a record 13 series for the 1996-97 season.
