Warner Media is adding a new programming block to Sundays on Cartoon Network titled “Acme Nights,” one that is geared towards children and families.
The block promises to have original shows to feature fan-favorite characters like Batman, the Looney Tunes, Gremlins, as well as airing movies and films that parents can watch with their kids.
Warner Media said in a press release, “WarnerMedia Kids & Family announced today the launch of ACME Night, an ultimate entertainment destination for families every Sunday starting Sept. 19 at 6:00 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network. The newest programming block, named after the fictional corporation made famous by the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote cartoons, kicks off with the premiere of the Warner Bros. hit DC superhero feature film, Shazam.”
They explain, “ACME Night will start off every week with family-friendly blockbusters that include Man of Steel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Sherlock Gnomes, Detective Pikachu, Scoob! and more. As part of the WarnerMedia Kids & Family content commitment to appeal to everyone in the household, ACME Night will be reserved for families to sit down together every Sunday beginning at 6:00 p.m. ET/PT for a lineup of library favorites and upcoming new originals. ACME Night programming will also be available on HBO Max starting next year.”
Warner Exec. Tom Ascheim said, “In the world of ACME anything, and I do mean anything, is possible.” He added, “We know families want to spend time together, so we’ve created a destination for multigenerational stories that pull families together through the power of imagination.”
Announced shows include ‘Merry Little Batman,’ ‘Did I Do That to the Holidays? A Steve Urkel Story,’ and an untitled project featuring the lovable characters from Looney Tunes and the Merrie Melodies.
Previously announced projects ‘Aquaman: King of Atlantis,’ ‘Batman: Caped Crusader,’ ‘Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai,’ and ‘Unicorn: Warriors Eternal’ will be added to the slate of shows.
