PR: Camp TELETOON Returns with Brand New Episodes of Atomic Betty
Eagerly anticipated, the programming block for the summer, Camp TELETOON, returns to television screens throughout July and August, airing four hours of top TELETOON shows every weekday from 8 am until noon ET/PT. In 2007 Camp TELETOON saw audiences aged six to eleven more than triple when compared to the same time slot in other months with this year’s edition set to do the same with shows including the nature-loving comedy Iggy Arbuckle, the Kung-Fu filled Chop Socky Chooks and the award-winning Camp Lazlo. The fifth edition of Camp TELETOON kicks-off June 30.
Along with re-visiting classic episodes of some of their favourite and top-rated TELETOON shows, kids tuning into Camp TELETOON will also be the first to see the brand new adventures of Betty, Sparky and X-5 as the third season of Atomic Betty premieres on Camp TELETOON with never-before-seen episodes of the home-grown spacey, super-powered comedy each weekday morning at 11:30 am ET/PT. Viewers will also be the first to get a glimpse of brand-new series premiering on TELETOON this fall with exclusive trailers for upcoming programmes scattered between Camp TELETOON shows.
