Replacing SOAPnet on most television content providers, Disney Channel today announced that its 24 hour channel, Disney Junior, aimed at the ‘preschool-plus’ market, will begin broadcasting on March 23.
At launch will be the new show, ‘Doc McStuffins,’ which heralds the tales of a six year old girl with a talent to be able to communicate with her stuffed animals and plays veterinarian to them. Future programs will include ‘Gaspard and Lisa,’ ‘Guess How Much I Love You,’ ‘Sofia the First’ and ‘Oki’s Oasis.’
‘Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,’ ‘Little Einsteins,’ ‘Handy Manny,’ ‘Rolie Polie Olie’ and ‘Jake and the Never Land Pirates,’ which have already found a niche on the existing Disney Junior programming block on Disney Channel will also air on the new 24-hour channel. The Disney Junior programming block is also expected to remain on Disney Channel.
