New to the box
Launching in August and September respectively, Boomerang and Dreamworks are now available on HyppTV to the delight of Malaysian kids (and parents, fess up). Here are our favourite new cartoons on the box
The Adventures of Puss in Boots
Dreamworks (HyppTV Ch 550) The suave and courageous Puss in Boots charmed in ‘Shrek’ and now he’s off experiencing his own adventures. Committed to protecting the town of San Lorenzo, Puss in Boots has acquired a cast of new friends: the sweet and wise Dulcinea, the nutty alchemist/ macramé owl shop owner Artephius and the jaded Sphinx. With heartwarming storylines, this is a great show for younger kids and diehard fans of Puss.
Scooby-Do! Mystery Incorporated
Every day, 5.30pm Boomerang (HyppTV Ch 555) This update of a classic that parents will well remember has Scooby, Shaggy, Velma, Fred and Daphne looking quite different, but underneath the makeover they’re still the same ‘meddling kids’ of old. The gang unravels a mystery in each episode, but each story is part of a larger conundrum facing their hometown, Crystal Cove.
Weekdays, 6pm Boomerang (HyppTV Ch 555) That loveable weirdo is back in all new episodes. Join him as he becomes a DIY Super Spy, an opera star, a taxi driver and even a star on the internet! With quirky animation and an even quirkier main character, the ‘Mr Bean’ animated series appeals to all ages, and the humour seems to cut effortlessly across cultures.
