Nickelodeon India's Sonic Starts to Premiere New Episodes Of 'Ninja Hattori'

Nickelodeon India's Sonic today, Monday 29th June 2020, started to premiere brand new episodes of Ninja Hattori, to make the monsoon exciting for kids!

As the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and lockdown continues, and with Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray announcing that lockdown in red and containment zones may continue after 30 June, schools and educational institutes will remain closed.

Thus, kids will have to be homebound for some more time now. Hence, kids' broadcasters have focused on bringing fresh content for fan-favourite shows to keep them occupied and entertained during these tough times.

Ninja Hattori, based on Ninja Hattori-kun "gag manga" comics by cartoonist Fujiko Fujio, revolves around 11-year-old Kenichi Mitsuba, a stubborn, lazy, average secondary school student who struggles with his studies, and always ends up frustrating his parents and teacher.

A little ninja named Hattori Kanzo befriends Kenichi and helps him out with his problems, and constantly keeps an eye on him, as a good friend. To his annoyance though, he finds Kenichi is always looking for the easy ways of doing things.

Earlier in December 2018, Japan’s private broadcaster TV Asahi and its animation production arm Shin-ei animation, teamed up with Green Gold Animation to create all-new episodes of Ninja Hattori.

This action comedy animation franchise is presently running over three decades with a large number of followers in Japan, India and countries worldwide.

New episodes of Ninja Hattori will air from Monday to Friday at 12:30 pm and 5:30 pm on Sonic. The series also streams on Viacom18 owned VOOT Kids.

ViacomCBS Strikes Sky TVOD Deal for Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV Titles

ViacomCBS has agreed a distribution deal with Sky in the UK to place its pay-TV brands on the Sky Store, marking its debut on the transactional platform.

The deal, which includes programming across Nickelodeon, MTV and Comedy Central will enable viewers to purchase the content on Sky Store via the app, online or on NOW TV boxes, without the need for a Sky subscription.

In particular, ViacomCBS said that some of its “most popular titles” will be available.

These include Nickelodeon favourites PAW Patrol, SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and The Adventures of Paddington, along with all 23 seasons of Comedy Central’s South Park and the latest seasons of MTV’s flagship titles Ex On The Beach, Celebrity Ex on the Beach, Geordie Shore and The Hills: New Beginnings.

Dan Fahy, Vice President (VP), Commercial and Content Distribution at ViacomCBS Networks UK said: “UK households continue to show a very healthy appetite to own digital content and ViacomCBS’s franchises are consistently top-sellers. We’re constantly expanding consumer access points to our brands and content, and the launch of our Nickelodeon, MTV and Comedy Central franchises on Sky Store is an important new path for consumers.”

This announcement serves as a precursor to the launch of the as-yet unnamed ViacomCBS ‘super service’ streamer that is set to launch in 2021. Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Bob Bakish has said that it will be a relaunch of CBS All Access, with the existing streamer’s 15,000 hours of content to be complemented by 15,000 hours of new Viacom and CBS programming.

Sky Store, which also sells HBO and BBC episodes, includes a DVD in the mail for all movie purchases.

Center for Cyber Safety and Education Launches 'Garfield at Home' Online Safety Program for Kids

Official Center for Cyber Safety and Education press release:

Children are safer online with new Garfield program

Children ages 6-11 learn how to be safe and secure online from the comfort of their homes.

June 29, 2020, 10:00 GMT

UNITED STATES, June 29, 2020 -- The nonprofit Center for Cyber Safety and Education launches new “Garfield at Home” program to teach children ages 6-11 how to be safe and secure online from the comfort of their homes.

“COVID-19 has shown us that internet safety education needs to be a priority, especially when it comes to younger kids. The Center is here to help parents eliminate the guessing game of how to teach their children cyber safety and what resources to use,” says Patrick Craven, director of the Center.

The new “Garfield at Home” program will feature award-winning Garfield’s Cyber Safety Adventures in a new digital platform where children will be able to learn internet safety lessons on privacy, gaming, cyberbullying, and illegal downloading through animated cartoons, game-based learning, and find and click storybooks. Children will earn badges as they test their knowledge through the different levels. Children will also have access to physical internet safety materials such as Garfield’s Cyber Safety Adventures Coloring Book and the just released Movie Adventure Comic Book.

“This is a comprehensive program that all children, no matter their preferred learning method, can enjoy. We are excited to bring parents peace of mind, knowing their kids are safer online thanks to Garfield and friends,” says Craven.

In addition, “Garfield at Home” will feature a new Parent’s Internet Safety Guide to help families continue the conversation of internet safety beyond “Garfield at Home” activities.

“At the Center we believe that internet safety is not a one-time conversation, rather a series of conversations to keep reminding children best cyber safety practices. We want to equip parents with the knowledge to teach their loved ones how to be safe online.”

With the uncertainty of how schools will operate in the fall of 2020, “Garfield at Home” is the perfect summer tool to educate children of the dangers online with fun and relatable content as a preventive measure. The new program is available for purchase here.

About Garfield’s Cyber Safety Adventures
Garfield’s Cyber Safety Adventures was originally introduced in the fall of 2016 by the Center and legendary cartoonist Jim Davis in the form of an Educator Kit to help teachers worldwide teach internet safety. The Kit includes cartoons, comic books, posters, trading cards, and stickers that show Garfield and friends tackling cyber safety issues such as privacy, the dangers of posting online, online etiquette, cyberbullying, and more.

Garfield’s Cyber Safety Adventures has already delivered over 170,000 safety lessons worldwide and the series received the national Learning® Magazine 2019 Teachers’ Choice Award, 2019 Academics’ Choice Smart Media Award and the 2020 Modern Library Award.

The Center for Cyber Safety and Education (Center), is a non-profit charitable trust committed to making the cyber world a safer place for everyone.
