A week of sensational singing, pranks and laughter for kids on DStv
It’s the week of April Fool’s Day, and kids’ viewing is loaded with top-tier tricks, sneaky shenanigans and a magical fairy-tale singing competition!
Saturday afternoon and it’s back to the kingdom of the Swan Princess, the magical series of animated films that charmed the little ones in 1994. In Swan Princess: Kingdom of Music, brand-new to M-Net (Channel 101), Princess Odette and Derek are hosting an international singing contest in honour of their daughter Alise’s birthday. And this time, it's Alise’s turn to find her true love and help break an evil sorcerer’s spell.
On Monday, kids can catch the Spyder siblings as they return to Nickelodeon (DStv channel 305) for the second season of secret agent shenanigans in the name of Mother Nature. Produced in Israel, this non-violent yet action-packed series is filled with fun and entertainment for the whole family as Tommy, Nikki and Daniel once again go undercover in the name of the Environmental Counter Crime Organization (ECCO).
No one will be pulling a fast one on Nicktoons (DStv channel 308) kids as the channel celebrates a week of pranks and tricks leading up to April Fool’s Day on Thursday!

The Swan Princess: Kingdom Of Music
Get ready for an afternoon of singing, laughter and love. Talented singers from all over the world gather in Princess Odette’s kingdom to compete for the honour of performing at her daughter Princess Alise’s grand birthday ball. When Alise meets the enigmatic Prince Li of Cathay, she is instantly drawn to him, and has to face her feelings for her childhood friend, Lucas. Everyone is surprised when Li’s sister, Princess Mei Li, secrets herself onto her brother’s ship to ask Odette and Derek’s help in defeating a curse that has been cast on her beloved Chen.
