Teletoon Announces Easter Programming Plans
Canadian Network Teletoon has announced their Easter programming plans. Highlights appear below (All times ET/PT):
Bugs Bunny’s Easter Funnies – Friday, March 25 – 7:00am
Encores – Sunday, March 29 – 7:00am, 1:00pm, 8:00pm
Granny needs a replacement to deliver Easter eggs after the Easter Bunny comes down with a cold. Since Bugs Bunny is unavailable, the rest of the Looney Tunes gang takes turns auditioning for the coveted job.
This holiday special features animated footage directed by Friz Freleng along with clips of classic shorts.
Daffy’s Easter Special – Sunday, March 27 – 8:00am, 2:00pm
Daffy Duck and his friends star in three Looney Easter stories.
In “The Yolk’s On You,” Daffy and Sylvester find a Golden Egg, which they paint white and store in Foghorn Leghorn’s hen house. When Daffy, working at a chocolate factory, keeps the money that’s been raised to buy chocolate Easter bunnies for the children of a Mexican town, Speedy Gonzales must right the wrong in “The Chocolate Chase.” And when Daffy’s determination to be different leads him to drop out of the annual flight north – opting for ground transportation instead – all he finds is trouble in “Daffy Flies North.”
