    I have to disagree with that. "Trying to become like Disney Channel"? The Disney Channel has been around since 1983, although it's been 21 years since it's relaunched in its current form, so that statement is subjective either way. No offense, but one channel picking up a show that aired on a previous channel doesn't suddenly mean they're becoming like that channel.

    Well I was looking at my guide the other day and I saw two shows that are coming to the Sprout block, previously aired on Playhouse Disney and Nick Jr. respectively. Charlie & Lola and Olivia are supposed to air next week. Olivia's case is interesting enough considering that the character and show are owned outright by DreamWorks Classics, which is part of the NBCU family.

    Not anymore, buddy. Universal Kids' schedule shows Dot. and Nina's World instead of Olivia and Charlie and Lola. Either two things happened:
    1. They've been rescheduled for a later date, or,
    2. Disney and Nickelodeon may or may not still have the rights to Charlie and Lola and Olivia respectively.
    I think it's mostly option one.

    Well, Olivia is coming next week. On the UK side, it looks like Inspector Gadget is coming next week as well.

    I'm pretty sure they airing Season 1, as here in Canada they STILL airing the first season on the English Teletoon, while French Teletoon does get Season 2. Hopefully they will air Season 2 on the English Teletoon next year.

    Starting Monday, at 6PM there's going to be 15 minute specials circulated around DWA, listed as "DWA Special". The week after that focuses on the Book of Dragons short.

    Also, not only are newer Land Before Time movies airing next Friday, but so are the first three An American Tail movies, which I don't believe ever aired on the channel before. In addition, several DWA specials ranging from Dragons to Kung Fu Panda are going to air on the 25th.

    Lastly, Charlie and Lola looks to be premiering on the 27th. Talk about changes in the lineup.
