Animated skeins “Liberty’s Kids” and “Ace Lightning” are among the titles kiddie syndicator DIC Entertainment has unveiled for its 2004 lineup.
Launched in September, DIC Kids’ Network is now available on 450 stations across 100% of the country. Three-hour blocks are offered via three separate feeds so that programmers can decide how they wish to parcel out the shows and meet FCC educational requirements.
Forty half-hours of “Liberty Kids” will be available this fall. Series, an animated look at the American Revolution debuted on PBS. Participating celebrity voices include Walter Cronkite, Michael Douglas and Warren Buffett.
CGI-animated/live-action adventure series “Ace Lightning” will make its U.S. debut as part of DIC Kids’ Network. In the U.K., where it originated, series averages 1.2 million viewers.
Also on the slate: “Sabrina, the Animated Series,” and a holiday specials package including “A Christmas Carol,” and “Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas.”
DIC roster is culled from its library of more than 3,000 half-hours of animated programming.
