by on February 6, 2008

Toronto – TELETOON is no slouch this month as March Break marks the Canadian premiere of the new season
of Ben 10, shown in a marathon eight-hour broadcast. In addition TELETOON has the Canadian premiere of the
feature-length, Ben 10: Secret of the Omnitrix and Re-Animated in which cartoons cause chaos in the real world.
March Break also means movies with three family films airing every day including Scooby-Doo and Batman favourites
and the first season of Total Drama Island is welcomed back to TELETOON with a weekend marathon
broadcast of all 26 episodes.

Ben 10 (Season Three and Movie Premiere)
On Saturday, March 15, it’s Ben 10 for over eight hours beginning at 10 am ET/PT as the final, exciting episode of
season two is followed by all 13 episodes of the brand-new season three. Fans of the hit show will be the first to see
Ben’s adventures in the new season, including Ben traveling through time, being controlled by evil hypnosis and even
turning into an alien werewolf. Immediately following the third season premiere and marathon, TELETOON
Presents airs Ben 10: Secret of the Omnitrix, the Ben 10 animated movie that sees Ben searching for Omnitrix’s
creator in order to stop the powerful alien watch from catastrophic destruction (at 5 pm ET/PT).

During March Break, weekday afternoons mean action with even more Ben 10, Monday to Friday at 3:30 pm ET/PT.
Fans of the transforming ten-year-old can catch classic episodes from season one and two of the hit show in which
Ben finds the alien Omnitrix, discovers his new powers and battles against the evil Vilgax and Kevin.

Re-Animated (Canadian Premiere)
The start of March Break is the time to catch the Canadian premiere of Re-Animated. Combining live-action and
cartoons, Re-Animated stars Dominic Janes (ER) as Jimmy Roberts, a twelve-year-old boy, who undergoes a brain
transplant after an accident at a amusement park. Waking from surgery, Jimmy learns that his brain has been
replaced with that of legendary cartoonist Milt Appleday (Fred Willard) and that he can now see Appleday’s cartoon
creations in the real-world, a development which turns his life upside down. Re-Animated is created and written
by Adam Pava and Tim McKeon, (Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends and The Life & Times of Juniper Lee). The special
is produced by Cartoon Network and is the TELETOON Presents movie on Saturday, March 8 at 5 pm ET/PT
with an encore presentation on March 13 at 4 pm and on March 14 at 9 am ET/PT. From Re-Animated, the live-
