An Island of Adventures for kids this May on DStv
Lucas The Spider Season 1
This series brings animator Joshua Slice’s adorable YouTube character Lucas the jumping spider into his own series, with some new friends. While the series is about learning those all-important social lessons – with a particular stress on compassion and empathy – it also helps kids to feel less frightened of spiders and other creepy crawlies. And since it takes place in a regular human-sized house, there’s all the fascination of seeing normal everyday places and objects from the point of view of a tiny spider who can jump around from floor to table, to wall and ceiling. For kids aged 3 and up.
Watch Lucas The Spider Season 1 from Monday, 2 May at 07:15 on Boomerang (DStv Channel 302).
The Unstoppable Yellow Yeti Season 1
This animated series from director Joonas Utti is based on his experiences growing up as a child in rural Finland, when his family played host to a Costa Rican exchange student who opened Joonas’s eyes to what was special about his life. In the story, 12-year-old Osma moves from his beach home to live with his cousin Rita in snowy Winterston, where they befriend a huge yellow yeti named Gustav – despite Rita’s father’s strict No Monsters policy. For children aged 6-10.
Watch The Unstoppable Yellow Yeti Season 1, Mondays-Fridays from Monday, 16 May at 17:15 on Disney Channel (DStv Channel 303).
The Patrick Star Show Season 1
Patrick is coming to us live from his family home Bikini Bottom, where he’s now hosting his own variety talk show with special guests, including his adopted sister Squidina Star and their pets, Ouchie the sea urchin and Tinkle the toilet. This is great fun for older kids as everything from breakfast TV to ghost hunting shows gets tumbled around through Patrick’s very special brain (hint to your kids to keep an eye on the end credits). PS: Nickelodeon will be dedicating 2-and-a-half hours each day to Patrick Star/Spongebob SquarePants episodes in the run up to the launch of the season.
