Fourth of July Programming on Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Disney and The Hub
Happy Independence Day to all our American visitors! While the Fourth is typically a time of vacationing, cooking out and fireworks, people also enjoy saying in and watch some good TV marathons and movies. This year, however, there’s not quite as much variety with the kids networks, but we’ll give you the run down anyway.
As with many of the networks this year, Nick is sticking mainly with their regular schedule, with a few movies during the morning. First off at 7am is two Dora the Explorer hour-long specials. At 9am is three episodes of SpongeBob. Then at 10:30am is The Fairly OddParents TV movie “Abra-Catastrophe!”. After that is the regularly scheduled Figure It Out episode at noon, followed by the latest two new episodes of Big Time Rush until 1:30pm. The iCarly/VICTORiOUS crossover movie “iParty With VICTORiOUS” follows at 1:30pm and then the hour-long VICTORiOUS special “Tori Goes Platinum”. Everything after that is the same as normal.
Nothing special here. The normal schedule takes place all day. They do have a Nicktoons premiere episode of Dragon Ball GT at 8pm followed by a new episode of Iron Man: Armored Adventures at 8:30pm, but those are regularly scheduled premieres.
Like Nicktoons, nothing to see here. Normal schedule all day. Those itching for a throwback to The N can watch South of Nowhere from 10pm-midnight, as it’s airing all this week.
May the fourth be with you! Cartoon Network schedules another year of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on the 4th with a marathon from 9am-1pm. Also note that Thursday (July 5th) is a revenge of the fifth block of episodes from 9-10:30am.
Boomerang has a day of Scooby from 9am to 6pm, with classic movies “The Ghoul School,” “The Boo Brothers” and “The Reluctant Werewolf” airing around episodes of The New Scooby-Doo Movies.
Disney has a mesh of their most popular series and movies this year starting at 9am with their “Fourth-tacular” event. Shows include Phineas and Ferb, Gravity Falls, Austin & Ally, A.N.T. Farm, Jessie, Shake It Up, Good Luck Charlie and My Babysitter’s a Vampire: The Series. Their latest DCOM, Let It Shine is also on at 10am.
DXD has a marathon of Ultimate Spider-Man from 8am-noon.
The Hub has a special “Huboom-a-thon!” today from 8am-7pm, with marathons of Transformers Rescue Bots from 8am-noon, The Super Hero Squad Show from noon-4pm and Transformers Prime until 7.
Whether you choose to watch anything listed above or not, do have a great Fourth of July and God Bless the U.S.A.!
