Playhouse Disney U.K. Celebrates Manny March
March 09, 2009
AWN Headline NewsPlayhouse Disney in the U.K. will celebrate Manny March, a month of programming dedicated to the hit animated series, HANDY MANNY. Playhouse Disney is currently the U.K.'s fastest growing kid's TV channel and HANDY MANNY is following suit having increased its reach amongst kids by a huge 223% since the show launched in October 2006.
During Manny March, viewers will be treated to a raft of new episodes and a brand new character is joining Handy's toolbox -- a curious flashlight named Flicker who is learning to speak English. Singer, songwriter, actress and voiceover artist Grey DeLisle is the voice of Flicker. New episodes of HANDY MANNY will premiere on Saturday March 7 and Sunday March 8 at 9:50 a.m. and then at the same time on Playhouse Disney (and on Playhouse Disney +1 at 10:15 a.m.) every Saturday until March 21.
Wilmer Valderrama stars as the voice of handyman Manny Garcia, a helpful, determined young man who, with the assistance of his eclectic set of talking tools, is Sheet Rock Hills' expert when it comes to repairing all that's not working -- even friendships among neighbors.
