Yes, you read that right – From the Official Nintendo Magazine UK website, the lovable pink ball is getting his own TV channel, filled with brand new episodes of Kirby’s cartoon, consisting of fifty episodes.
While this is from the UK website, this means there is no indication whether the Americans are getting the same deal as those in the UK, but the free channel – yes, free, zip to pay – will be updated twice a week, with a new episode on a Monday, then a Thursday. While the first episode will always be there, as episodes become older, they will be taken down to make way for the newer ones.
I don’t know about you, but I’m totally watching these – Kirby Right Back At Ya was shown around in 2003 on a children’s channel in the UK, and distributed by 4Kids! in America.
EDIT: Turns out the episodes are Kirby: Right Back At Ya – still free, but sadly not the new episodes – thanks for rctgamer3 for giving us more info.
I love me some attention. When Britt appeared to me during one of my many vision quests and said “hey, you’ll get to make your own blog posts on the site!”, the first thing I told him was “well steel yourself, because I’m turning your little dog & pony & charity & basic human decency show into the ME ME ME ANATOTITAN POWER HOUR.” He laughed, I asked him what was so funny, he told me it was none of my business, I broke a chair over his head, yadda yadda yadda. Long story short, my stitches are healing nicely and I get to show you VG Flash, my cartoon series! VG Flash details the epic journey of Wilhlem, a knife-wielding tempura shrimp, and Zee, a flying blueberry, using video game music as a backdrop. This may seem odd, since everyone knows tempura shrimp and blueberries are natural enemies in the wild.
You fans of counting out there might notice that I’m starting with cartoon #24, which is rarely if ever the first number in the alphabet. I’m showing this one first since (A) it promotes the Resident Evil marathon and (B) as always I’m hoping to ride Jack Bauer’s coattails to glory.
