Kids' WB! on an adventure


Kids' WB! — the CW's Saturday morning kids block — is adding five new animated series to its 2007-08 lineup.

In addition to the previously announced brand-new "Spider-Man" series, Kids' WB! is adding three adventure shows — the CG-animated "Eon Kid," the multiplatform-enhanced "Magi-Nation" and the action-comedy "World of Quest" — and "a series of self-discovery" for younger kids titled "Will & Dewitt."

"Spider-Man" is set to premiere in early 2008, while the other four are debuting in the fall.

"The Kids' WB! core audience thrives on heightened levels of action and adventure, and these new series promise to take our fans into realms they couldn't have imagined," Kids' WB! senior vp and GM Betsy McGowen said.

The five shows join four previously announced returning series from Warner Bros. Animation: "Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!" "Tom and Jerry Tales," "Legion of Super Heroes" and "The Batman." All four series begin new seasons in the fall.

In addition, Cookie Jar Entertainment's "Johnny Test" will return to Kids' WB! in the fall.

"Eon Kid" is produced by Daiwon C&A Holdings Co., Design Storm Co., BRB International and Manga Entertainment and distributed by Starz Media. "World of Quest," based on the Komikwerks graphic novel series by Jason Kruse, is produced by Cookie Jar. "Magi-Nation" is produced by Cookie Jar and Daewon Media (Korea), while "Will & Dewitt" is from Cookie Jar. "Spider-Man" is from Culver Entertainment.
