Kids, redraw your summer with Cartoon Network at Ayala Malls

Cartoon Network and Ayala Malls bring kids a fun summer full of adventure with the launch of the Redraw Your Summer program. Built on four pillars – “Craft Your World”, “Move Your World”, “Create Your World”, and “Imagine Your World” – malls become “worlds” where kids can explore creativity through arts, theater, and dance.

From May 1 to June 30, the program starts with a meet and greet with iconic Cartoon Network characters. Kids can also participate in designing community art murals featuring specially made Tweety 80th anniversary artwork at select Ayala Malls.

“Kids are going to love all the activities we have planned for them. Together with Cartoon Network, we’ve designed a full program that entertains through artistic expression – it promises to be plenty of fun,” shared Tintin Enriquez-Yabao, Ayala Malls Consumer Marketing Head.

With Crayola as the official creativity partner, the program comes to life through partnerships with Steps Dance Project, SOFA Design Institute, The Mind Museum, Global Art Philippines, and Make Believe Productions.

Craft Your World
SoFA Design Institute is the Philippines’ leading educational institution committed to the art and business of design. Program workshops to be offered in Glorietta, Alabang Town Center, TriNoma, Greenbelt, and Market!

The studio will hold workshops for kids to groove to their favorite Cartoon Network tunes! Workshops will be held at Glorietta, Alabang Town Center, TriNoma, Greenbelt, Market! Market!, U.P. Town Center, and Ayala Malls Cloverleaf. Marquee, Abreeza, and Solenad will also work with community partners for dance and martial arts workshops.

To be held at Alabang Town Center, Glorietta, Ayala Malls Manila Bay, Abreeza, and Greenbelt, Global art will lead workshops for kids to discover their inner artist by coloring their favorite Cartoon Network stars. U.P. Town Center, Solenad, Ayala Malls Serin, Centrio Mall, and The District Imus will also work with various artists and organizations.

New TV brand CARTOONITO encourages young ones to laugh, play and learn

Cartoonito has arrived! It’s time for youngsters to laugh, play and learn with a brand-new selection of shows every morning on Cartoon Network.

Now available, Cartoonito offers a modern approach to programming for youngsters aged 2-5. It’s a space for them to experience belly laughs and draw outside the lines, and where every show is designed to support each child’s unique potential.

This is achieved with an educational framework called “Humancentric Learning”. Designed by early childhood education expert, Dr Laura Brown, the curriculum features four pillars: Creativity, Caring, Curiosity and Courage. The brand aims to inspire kids to use their imagination, to learn from their mistakes, and to treat others with empathy and respect.

For example, in CGI-animated Lucas the Spider – based on the viral YouTube hit – curious jumping spider Lucas always demonstrates kindness and perseverance in his many adventures.

Other shows include Baby Looney Tunes, Dino Ranch, Monchhichi, Alice & Lewis, Ranger Rob, Mush Mush & The Mushables and Sesame Street-inspired Esme & Roy. They form a line-up that celebrates individuality and originality, while championing creativity, compassion and inclusion. Many of these shows – in addition to Sesame Street – are also available on the streaming service HBO GO.

Also new to audiences are Cartoonito’s very own stars. Meet Nito, Glob, Itty and Wedge. They love exploring the world and learning new things, and they’ll always be hand to guide viewers through in between shows.

In the recent weeks leading up to the launch, families in Asia were tasked to play hide and seek with the cute TV mascots, who popped up in well-known locations around the Philippines. Cartoonito has downloadable activity sheets and games available on its website, as well as an awesome Augmented Reality filter (launching mid-April) that encourages kids to dance along with Itty and be courageous and creative.

Tune into Cartoonito on Cartoon Network every morning on SKYcable Ch. 43 (SD) and Ch. 178 (HD). Find out more using #CartoonitoAsia, and at CartoonNetworkAsia.com/Cartoonito and on Facebook and Instagram.

Finn and Jake return to the Land of Ooo in Adventure Time special

The Emmy and Peabody Award-Winning series Adventure Time returns to Asia with Adventure Time: Distant Lands – four new one-hour original specials. The first, entitled BMO, is now available to stream on HBO GO.

These long-awaited new specials will continue Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time stories that captured imaginations and introduced unlikely heroes and best-buds – Finn the dog and Jake the human – who traversed the mystical Land of Ooo and encountered its colourful inhabitants.

BMO follows the lovable little robot from Adventure Time. When there’s a deadly space emergency in the farthest reaches of the galaxy, there’s only one hero to call, and it’s probably not BMO. Except that this time it is!

En route to Mars, BMO gets sucked into a wormhole and crash lands on an unknown alien world. On this decaying distant land, BMO finds competing alien races mired in a conflict over dwindling resources and appoints himself sheriff of this seemingly lawless outpost.

He deputises a reluctant new friend, Y5, but Y5’s family has other plans for BMO: complete dismantling! Realising BMO’s importance, Y5 joins forces with our robot hero to save this alien world and uncover the real reason her people are on the brink of extinction.

In Southeast Asia, the remaining three episodes will be available on Cartoon Network and HBO GO in 2021.

Obsidian features Marceline and Princess Bubblegum as they journey to the imposing, beautiful Glass Kingdom—and deep into their tumultuous past—to prevent an earth-shaking catastrophe.

Wizard City follows Peppermint Butler, starting over at the beginning, as just another inexperienced Wizard School student. When mysterious events at the campus cast suspicion on Pep, and his checkered past, can he master the mystic arts in time to prove his innocence?

Together Again brings Finn and Jake together again, to rediscover their brotherly bond and embark on the most important adventure of their lives.

Created by Pendleton Ward and executive produced by Adam Muto, Adventure Time is a critically decorated show that garnered numerous entertainment awards and cultivated a generation of talent who have helmed such hits as Steven Universe, Over the Garden Wall, and Clarence. Adventure Time: Distant Lands is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and is an HBO Max Original series.

HBO Original Series as well as live channels are also available for streaming to SKYcable subscribers on HBO GO for as low as Php99/month. To subscribe, call your local SKY office or fill up this form.
