    "Winx Club", huh? Now the question is, what does "Winx Club" mean? Is it the original English version, or is that "other" version (i.e., the one that was shown on U.S. TV)?

    If you're referring to the 4Kids version, there's no guarantee they'll even start airing the show from any episode they dubbed. Any of the Nick-produced stuff is probably off limits. For the most recent seasons, RAI stopped producing the original English dub in Montreal and moved it to New York.

    KidsClick to me seems like a lot of crap that was rejected from the major 3 cartoon channels, a lot of 4Kids and a lot of Teletoon so not necessarily surprised. You know its bad when the best show they got is one that only got popular because it was popular with shippers

    Perhaps the "official" one with Canadian actors? I don't know.

    Looking it up, the Montreal dub was used in recent Winx Club DVDs in North America. It seems like the 4Kids version has been pulled from circulation.

    I suspect KidsClick will last longer than 13 weeks. Sinclair is still putting out job postings to hire potential employees. Seems kind of silly to do that if you expect the block to shutdown next month.

    I believe I have to state the obvious. You think KidsClick would actively advertise "Winx Club" if they were about to abort the block? It sounds like the programmers (if there are any) are in a bit of a rut right now, and are more concerned about producing assets for use during breaks (notice the programmes being the same, aside from some new bumpers & promos being used) than getting the lineup right.

    You'll never guess what exciting change that's happening to the block starting September 11!

    Great. We don't get a Robocop AC repeat for 20 years, then suddenly, it gets pulled. I'm guessing MGM didn't provide them with enough episodes? The only thing I can think of is that they don't know how/want to work with content in 4:3. Remember all the episodes that were aired were stretched.

    Oh, I see. They can't make a 26-episode show run on a daily basis. Wonder what'll happen with Miraculous, though, seeing how it has the same episode count.

    I didn't address this in my last post, but where does this info come from?

    So KidsClick will just air it after all since they have Miraculous (The same studio as Zak Storm).

    KidsClick’s fall lineup includes Hot Wheels, Winx Club, Zak Storm
    What is going on? Bizarre thing to walk back two weeks before they were set to air it.

    And they still list Blazing Team episode 42 as the season finale. There should be ten more episodes left in season 2 ...

    They previously said their online streaming would launch "this summer". Sorry, KidsClick, but "actions speak louder than words" as they say...

    If it launches before September 21st, it's technically still summer. ;p

    Well, the way I see it it's two possibilities. They either:
    1. Delayed it to a later month, or
    2. They were lying to us the whole time.

    Are they airing the 4Kids version of Winx Club or are they airing the Nickelodeon version of it?

    Most likely the Nickelodeon version, as the 4Kids prints are long gone by now.
