Friday, 2 April, to Monday, 5 April, will be fun for the whole family as DStv’s School of Laughter packs the schedule with special episodes and movies.

Your basket of Easter treats on DStv’s School of Laughter

For many families across South Africa Friday, 2 April, to Monday, 5 April, will be our second Easter weekend of social distancing. This means none of those big holiday gatherings with the people we love. So DStv is going all out to make this the best Easter weekend and Family Day celebration ever!

The DStv School of Laughter apprentice Easter Bunnies have put together special baskets of episodes of your favourite funny shows that centre around Easter, family time, eggs, treasure hunts, baby animals and everything to get you in the mood for your own little hunts, feasts and snuggles on the sofa. There are movies for everyone to enjoy too, and a little foretaste of what’s happening throughout April.

Spoiler Alert? Teen Titans fans, it’s going to be awesome!

Here’s what’s coming up this Easter weekend:

Nick Easter

Paw Patrol (1)

Teen Titans Go (1)

Teen Titans Easter

Quippy, weird and imaginative animated series Teen Titans Go! combines a sly comic look at superhero action and bizarrely imaginative scenarios to make for a show that older and younger kids can enjoy together – and the parents won’t mind either. From Friday, 2 April, to Monday, 5 April, it’s Teen Titans action all the way from 11am daily. It’s a combination of brand-new episodes, classics and Easter-themed storylines. And check out the movies section for more Teen Titans action.

Friday, 2 April: S6 (Brand-new! episodes 35-38). In this four-episode storyline, the Teen Titans intend to fly to LA, but wind up in San Pedro, where they hear of the villainous Carl SanPedro. Determined to stop this villain, they wind up tracking his crimes across the globe to Jamaica, India and Croatia, learning about local customs and legends along the way.

Saturday, 3 April: S4 (episodes 37-38). The Justice League holds a talent search hoping to uncover a new superhero worthy of joining their team, which Robin is determined to win. But with Starfire and her cats showing off their act, Raven dancing, Cyborg singing and Beast Boy transforming into a cow with a shocking trick, does Robin stand a chance?

Sunday, 4 April: S3 (episode 27 and 41-45), and S4 (episodes 18). In two special, Easter-themed episodes, the Titans must find the missing Easter Bunny and have to step in again when the Tooth Fairy tries to stage a coup on the Easter action. Then, in a five-episode story arc, the Teen Titans’ survival skills and knowledge are put to the test when they’re stranded on a desert island.

Monday, 5 April: S4 (episode 30). The Titans, who’re now old-age pensioners, take their first last trip to the world of Night Begins To Shine where they challenge a new villain, Ultralak.
