Lovers of legendary superhero cartoons are in for a swell time as Superhero HQ, a new action packed DStv pop-up channel is set to take over the holidays.
A statement from Multichoice said: “An exciting new channel premiering on DStv, Superhero HQ, powered by Cartoon Network is where universally appealing superheroes will share their best stories about saving the world and their most action-packed adventures, offering viewers the best of animated adventures for the whole family to enjoy.
“From March 15 to 31, 2019, these much-loved superheroes will set up home on DStv Channel 300. During the day, the kids will get to enjoy eight of their favourite animated, caped-hero series like Batman, Superman, Justice League, Green Lantern and Teen Titans. Then, in the evenings, the whole family can settle down to watch some superhero sagas such as the four Superman films, and all three Spy Kids movies.”
The statement added: “Cartoons like The LEGO Batman, Gotham Knight, and Justice League: Throne of Atlantis will also be available to viewers.”
However, acclaimed South African comedian, Comic’s Choice Award and Emmy Award nominee, Mojak Lehoko, will bring some African flavour and lots of laughter to the channel, on and off air. In-between the anticipated superhero programming, Lehoko will present super-comedic stand-up videos where he identifies with the humour found in the superheroes of the channel.
“I like being creative, always trying to do new things and being part of Cartoon Network’s pop-up channel makes me feel like a superhero! This channel is a special treat for the legions of superhero fans, young and old, delivering thrilling action as well as moments to laugh out loud,” Lehoko said.
