CARTOON NETWORK’S ‘WE BARE BEARS’ AND ‘THE POWERPUFF GIRLS’ TO AIR ON TV5 IN THE PHILIPPINES

MANILA, PHILIPPINES (September 22, 2016) – Localized versions of two of Cartoon Network’s most popular and highest-rating shows – We Bare Bears and The Powerpuff Girls – will air on the Philippines’ free-to-air TV channel TV5.

Filipino kids and families nationwide will be treated to a lineup of new series featuring recent animations from the country’s number one kids’ channel.

From October 15, every Saturday at 8am on TV5, catch the hilarious Grizzly, Panda and Ice Bear in We Bare Bears. They do everything they can to adapt to the modern-day normal life; these tech-savvy and internet-obsessed bears try their best to find their way in the world, but it’s never easy.

Immediately following the stackable bear-trio, from 8:30-9am, TV5 viewers can then follow the superhero-sisters Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup as they protect Townsville from different evil dastardly villains. The all-new and reimagined The Powerpuff Girls are everybody’s favorite super-cute, super-fierce troupe armed with super-cool powers to save the world before bedtime.

TV5 already hosts a daily branded block for Boomerang, Turner’s sister kids’ brand in the Philippines. It features iconic titles including Scooby-Doo, Looney Tunes, Mr Bean and Tom and Jerry.
