MTV Airing Sitcoms in Mornings like George Lopez, Fresh Prince; Disney Channel Gets Dick Van Dyke for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

MTV

Effective immediately MTV is airing sitcoms in the mornings. As of yesterday, MTV is airing a block of My Wife & Kids from 9-11am, followed by George Lopez from 11am-12pm and a block of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air from 12pm-2pm. All three comedies are being borrowed from other Viacom networks, with My Wife & Kids currently on Centric, George Lopez on Nick at Nite and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on Nick at Nite/BET. MTV2 is already airing sitcoms, but now it looks like MTV will get in on the action in the mornings, while MTV2 stops the sitcoms in the mornings. MTV2 will continue to air sitcoms in afternoons (Boy Meets World) and late nights (i.e. Wayans Bros, Martin, Jamie Foxx). In addition, MTV will air a The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Columbus Day marathon on Monday, Oct. 13 from 9am-4pm. MTV has aired sitcoms in the past, like That '70s Show. Stay with us for continued updates as we get them.


Mickey Mouse Clubhouse - Mickey's Pirate Adventure

Disney Legend Dick Van Dyke guest stars as Goofy's pirate grandpappy, Captain Goof-Beard, in a special music-filled episode of Disney Junior's Emmy Award-nominated animated series Mickey Mouse Clubhouse premiering this Friday (Oct. 10) at 9:00am ET/PT on Disney Channel. The episode, titled Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: "Mickey's Pirate Adventure," features six new original songs performed by Van Dyke's character alongside Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy and Pluto. In the special, Mickey and pals are enjoying a day at the beach when Peg Leg Pete delivers a note from Goofy's long-lost Grandpappy, Captain Goof-Beard, asking for the gang's help in ensuring that Harmony-Chord Island, the musical isle where Goof-Beard lives, doesn't go completely out of tune and sink.
