NEW SEASONS

Total Drama All-Stars
TELETOON Original Series; Canadian Premiere; Season 5
Premieres Thursday, January 9 at 7 p.m. ET/PT (two back-to-back episodes)
(New episodes air Thursdays at 7 p.m. ET/PT)
Chris McLean and Chef are back at Camp Wawanakwa in the latest installment of Total Drama: Total Drama All-Stars! Fourteen characters return, each hoping to be the one to take home the million dollar prize. In an epic battle of good vs. evil, the Heroic Hamsters and the Villainous Vultures compete in some of the most daunting (and dangerous) challenges from seasons past. As always, each episode ends with one team member being eliminated by their peers, but this year being sent home early is more humiliating than ever with travel being provided by The Flush Of Shame.

Rocket Monkeys
TELETOON Original Series; Season 2
Premieres Wednesday, January 8 at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT
(New episodes air Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT)
When battling rogue black holes, vengeful aliens, criminal masterminds, and rifts in the evil dimension, the universe turns to its bravest and brightest to save the day. When those guys are busy, the universe is stuck with the Rocket Monkeys. Inexplicably charged with carrying out all kinds of important missions, brothers Gus and Wally cause more intergalactic calamity than they could ever prevent. Luckily, they have plenty of help from YAY-OK, their dashing and devoted (if slightly outdated) robot. These monkeys may not have the brainpower of the Rocket Chickens or the guts of the Cosmosloths, but they do have a hunger for adventure. And by “adventure” we mostly mean “bananas.”
