The two diginets have licensed a package of animated Christmas shows from Broadcast Partners that includes The Fat Albert Christmas Special, Cricket on the Hearth, Second Star to the Left, The Legend of Frosty the Snowman and He-Man and She-Ra — A Christmas Special.
Broadcast Partners today announced it had entered into a license deal with both Me-TV and ThisTV to carry its 2011 holiday package of classic animated fare that includes The Fat Albert Christmas Special (starring Bill Cosby), Cricket on the Hearth (Danny Thomas, Marlo Thomas and Ed Ames), Second Star to the Left (Hugh Laurie), The Legend of Frosty the Snowman (narrated by Burt Reynolds) and He-Man and She-Ra — A Christmas Special.
Broadcast’s Partner’s President Neal Ardman said: “Doing a deal with Me TV and ThisTV was the obvious choice for this amazing content.”
Neal Sabin , president of Me-TV and ThisTV, said: “Adding seasonal content for families and boomers to both ThisTV and Me-TV makes sense for our viewers, affiliates and advertisers. Having classic characters from Santa to She-Ra to Fat Albert insures these programs will reflect the spirit and programming of both our classic TV and movie-based networks.”
According to Ardman, “Me-TV and ThisTV bring a huge national audience to some amazing titles that, frankly, have been unseen in years. How wonderful for parents to now be able to share some of these holiday memories with their own children.”
