‘Spectacular Spider-Man’ Swings from KidsWB to Disney XD in March
The Spectacular Spider-Man will be spinning webs at Disney XD in March 2009. Toon Disney is being rebranded Disney XD in February in an effort to appeal to boys as well as girls and having Spidey on hand won’t hurt. The webslinger’s current animated adventures are running on KidsWB but will make the move in a few months, according to Toon Zone.
The latest animated incarnation premiered this past March and needed to vacate his slot as 4Kids Entertainment completed a deal to program the Saturday morning hours for the CW network. With 4Kids and Fox going separate ways, the Fox series were also moving to CW, which squeezed available slots.
The Spectacular Spider-Man’s second season will premiere on Disney XD with repeats from the first season are also expected.
