U.S. Hispanic network HITN-TV, based in Brooklyn, will debut a new children’s programming block on Saturday, Aug. 6 at 10 a.m. ET. The offerings will include new series as well as second seasons of familiar titles, according to director of programming Florentina Almonte.
The initial series lineup includes:
Horacio and the Plasticines, a puppetry show from Zumbastico Studios that centers on a boy named Horacio who each day races home to see his unusual friends, “Los Plasticines” — four colorful lumps of clay who live on his desk and come to life (in stop-motion segments) to offer Horacio and his friend Flo advice and tips for dealing with childhood concerns.
Joe & Jack, a whimsical 2D series from Ireland’s Dancing Girl Prod., follows four-year-old Joe and his best friend, a witty cat named Jack, as they use their imaginations to go on incredible adventures.
Also on offer is kids’ favorite Fifi and the Flowertots, hybrid kids’ yoga show Omm Moo, Telmo & Tula Arts & Crafts and interactive game show Quiz Time.
