New Action Block Coming to Cartoon Net

Cartoon Network plans to launch Miguzi, a new weekday afternoon block of action/adventure programming. Aimed at the six-11 crowd, Miguzi will air weekdays from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. (ET, PT), beginning Monday, April 19.

The new block will be built around an undersea environment. Each day, a CG host named Erin will be transported by a giant sea monster to a submerged ship where he and his sea creature pals watch the animated shows. Miguzi will also feature live-action segments profiling entertainers, athletes and everyday heroes ranging from comic book artists to the country’s top street basketball players. These lifestyle pieces are intended to bridge the gap between real life action/adventure and animation.

Totally Spies will kick off the lineup at 5 p.m., followed by Code LYOKO, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Teen Titans.
