Toronto (August 29, 2007) - "Magi-Nation" and "Will & Dewitt" make their US debut this fall on Kids' WB! on The CW on Saturday, September 22.

Will & Dewitt
The trouble with being a kid is that there seems to be a lot more things you can't do than things you can do! Sometimes you just need that extra boost of confidence and a little humor to push you along. Will, an everyday kid who wants to do it all is able to jump into any new situation with a little help from his best friend, cheerleader and morphing pal, Dewitt (who just happens to be a frog!). Together Will & Dewitt are ready to make a big splash in the world. Where there's a Will, Dewitt's the way!
Based on the popular trading card game, "Magi-Nation" follows the adventures of Tony Jones, an average teen who finds himself mysteriously transported to the magical world of Magi-Nation. Tony and his friends who happen to be two magi in training, and a collection of dream creatures team up to save the nation by solving riddles, battling evil and discovering the secrets hidden in the Moonlands. During their adventures, they just might discover some secrets about themselves! Kids can experience the continuing action of Tony Jones, Edyn and Strag via the Internet this fall at www.magi-nation.com and www.kidswb.com as they navigate their way through environmental obstacles and confront the constant challenges.
Returning for a third season, "Johnny Test", his genetically-engineered dog, Dukey, and his brainiac twin sisters are up for all-new outrageous adventures. This season Johhny transforms into a dog with the help of the twins' HumAnimal Converter, takes on a powerful wrestler, The Cave Man, and laces up his Ugly Sonic-Rocket Sneakers to transport himself to the Arizona desert to search for the missing ingredient for the twins' love potion.
World of Quest
"World of Quest" is a comedic action series following young Prince Nestor on a mission to save his parents, with his amazing muscled protector Quest by his side. Although Quest has little interest in adventuring with the young prince, he is under the power of a magic spell which forces him to come to Nestor's aide when he is in trouble. Together this odd couple, and their rag-tag team of cohorts, set off on a rollicking rollercoaster ride of an adventure to save Nestor's parents. The show is based on the Komikwerks graphic novel series by Jason Kruse.
In addition to Cookie Jar's slate of shows on Kids' WB! on the CW, "Hurray For Huckle!", inspired by the works of best-selling children's author Richard Scarry, will debut on CBC in Canada this fall.
