    The show hasn't aired since the rebrand, but yeah, my DVR finally got the memo (though searching it still had the old name, but when I clicked it it had the new name).

    Anyway, I saw the first half of yesterday's episode.

    "Close, but you're way off."

    Simpsons did it! Simpsons did it!

    I was also going to say "Monty Python and the Holy Grail did it!" when Pipsqueak banged the nuts together to make it sound like a horse, especially when she said the coconuts were too heavy, but when they got to Chunk as the troll guarding the bridge who wanted Frankie to "Answer these three riddles" and he tried to get it to rhyme, it was obvious they were trying to reference Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    And they still call Stanley "Dad" in the Closed Captions. They were only going to use his name that one time?

    And it looks like The ZhuZhus doesn't get its own bumper. I haven't seen Pat the Dog yet, so I wonder if it or Hotel Transylvania will get one (I know Friends of Heartlake City didn't get one either). They may just be for original shows (even The Suite Life of Zack and Cody got one when they were airing repeats of it a few months ago).

    That promo feels weird. As I've said countless times, the ZhuZhus always felt more normal than Frankie.

    No new episodes this weekend, but the next two Saturdays will have them. But please note the time change - 11:30am EST

    Also of note: Due to an encore of Descendants 2 on July 22, The ZhuZhus will not air, but a new episode will air that Sunday at 11:30am.

    BAD NEWS:

    This weekend, the Get Animated block will be cut down to an hour, with only Puppy Dog Pals and Elena of Avalor in it. Repeats of KC Undercover and Bizaardvark will be replacing it. Therefore, Pat the Dog and The ZhuZhus are no longer on the schedule. Things aren't looking good.

    They are replacing one hour with that Zendaya show and Bizaardvark? Dang it.

    Technically two hours. The 10am hour is gone too, but since Tangled and Hotel Transylvania are already airing in so many other timeslots, especially with such low episode counts, it's not really a great loss.

    It's really sad, when Hotel Transylvania is co-produced by the same production company as ZhuZhus and yet it gets more air time. Maybe it could be that HT is based on a popular movie franchise and that ZhuZhu Pets have been silent for the past few years, but really, I just don't know anymore. I'm giving Disney Channel more hope that maybe something occurred that urged them to seize broadcasting, for now.

    Honestly, I kinda felt that way too. As much as I love The ZhuZhus, I did kinda think it was a bit late to make a cartoon about them. I mean, it's not as a ridiculously big gap as, say, Magi-Nation (came out six years after the Game Boy Color game came out, well past the point where GBC was out of print), but it does feel a bit late.

    Anyway, I would give them the benefit of the doubt here, but I'm not sure, especially with Pat the Dog off for now as well. Puppy Dog Pals is still airing new episodes and new Elena starts soon, but not even in those slots. I half-expected them to take off The ZhuZhus when the Star vs. Battle for Mewni movie aired on Disney XD, thinking they'd cut it into four episodes to air it on the block (like the Tangled movie), but I guess not. I really don't know why they cut both Pat the Dog AND The ZhuZhus.

    Hopefully Pat the Dog and The ZhuZhus aren't gone for good.

    This show was meant to relaunch The ZhuZhus brand.

    I'm surprised Disney is binning it so soon. Ratings seemed to improve dramatically once the retool was done.

    Once again, dunno if they're gonna air it as they've stopped after 17 in the US, but here's the rest of the titles.
    For some reason 2 of the episodes don't have two titles, but I doubt they're 22-minute "TV specials".

    And would you look at that, "Pollylocks." I assume the new title is Frankielocks.

    I think those July dates are what was originally going to air (remember that I mentioned before that there already wasn't going to be a new episode on the 22nd due to the Descendants 2 encore, with the episode being moved to the 23rd). But those August dates are intriguing. I wonder if they're going to burn it off on weekdays?

    ... Well, it looks like Pat the Dog is back on the schedule but The ZhuZhus is still gone. Here's the Get Animated schedule for the next few weeks:

    7/22:
    9am - Puppy Dog Pals
    9:30am - Elena of Avalor

    7/23:
    9am - Puppy Dog Pals
    9:30am - Elena of Avalor
    10:00am - Pat the Dog
    10:30am - Hotel Transylvania
    11:00am - Tangled

    7/29:
    9am - The Lion Guard (one hour special)
    10am - Tangled
    10:30am - Hotel Transylvania
    11:00am - Pat the Dog

    7/30:
    9am - Puppy Dog Pals
    9:30am - Elena of Avalor

    It's starting to look like they're just playing around with the schedule and seeing what works.
