Kids’ WB! Heats Up Its Spring Schedule With Two-Part Pokémon Episodes And Original Programming

(March 28, 2000 – Burbank, CA) – Kids’ WB!’s Spring lineup showers viewers with a rainbow array of adventure and excitement, including original episodes, two-part “POKÉMON” episodes and themed weekday programming.

The excitement begins to blossom this week with “POKÉMON” “Badges Week” (7:00a.m./ET), featuring Ash earning a different badge each day. The adventure continues at 3:30 p.m. ET/PT with “THE NEW BATMAN/SUPERMAN ADVENTURES” “It Takes Two” themed week, as Batman and Superman working together with their pals, the Grey Ghost, Flash and Steel, to out-flank the sneaky villians. The weekday lineup also includes an original episode of “WARNER BROS. HISTERIA!,” “Big Fat Baby Theatre,” Friday, March 31 (7:30 a.m.) in which a cast of Big Fat Babies takes the stage.

On Saturday, April 1, the two-part “POKÉMON” episode begins with “Pokéball Peril” (8:30 a.m./ET), featuring Ash and the gang making a crash landing on Valencia Island. One of the trainers begins to feel at home on the island…will they stay or will they go? In the second half of this two-part episode, “The Lost Lapras” (9:00 a.m./ET), the trainers head home in a hot air balloon and discover that they have been double-crossed by Team Rocket — once again. After another crash landing, they meet another trainer who becomes the newest member of the “gang.”
