BURBANK, CA (December 10, 2004) — Kids WB is celebrating the month of December by getting into the holiday spirit and decking the halls with the distinguished Holiday Sock “on-hand” to wish everyone a happy holiday season! On Saturday, December 11 (8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. ET), the network invites viewers to the fourth annual “Holiday Sock Party” from the North Pole and hosted by everyone's favorite tube sock! Viewers won't want to miss the exciting party this year as the Holiday Sock grants kids their unique wishes from all around the country. From more than 10,000 entries received, eight lucky kids will have their wishes granted – Kids WB style!

Kids WB's Saturday morning schedule also will be highlighted by all-new episodes of Teen Titans, Xiaolin Showdown, twice the treat of Pokémon - Advanced Challenge and a very Merry Christmas episode of ¡Mucha Lucha! Gigante, entitled “The Match Before Christmas” when Rikochet, Flea and Buena Girl must put the smackdown on an evil Santa in order to save Christmas! This really, really gigante series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation, also will wrestle its way back onto the weekday lineup, beginning Monday, December 13, at 3:30 p.m. ET, along with animé-hit Pokémon in the 3:00 p.m. ET time period.

During the morning of Saturday, December 18, kids also will be invited to participate in the “Guess Who's In The Sock Sweepstakes.” Four-hundred lucky viewers will have the opportunity to win one of 200 Gi Joe Valor Vs. Venom™ Thunderwing Jet With Slipstream Action Figure or one of 200 Furreal Friends™ Luv Cubs™ from Hasbro, Inc. To be eligible to win, kids will need to identify “characters that pop out of the sock” during Kids WB's Saturday morning lineup (8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. ET/7:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. PT) and enter the sweepstakes by logging onto www.Kids WB.com. Kids WB will be teaming up with Hasbro, Inc. for this sock-popping promotion.

On Saturday, December 25, Kids WB will celebrate Christmas morning with a festive lineup of holiday favorites, including The WB's primetime classic special Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer (9:00 – 10:00 a.m. ET / 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. PT) and an encore presentation of the ¡Mucha Lucha! Gigante Christmas themed episode will air at 8:30 a.m. ET / 7:30 a.m. PT.

Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer, loosely based on the 1979 song with music and lyrics by Randy Brooks, is a goofy and heartwarming holiday escapade. Young Jake Spankenheimer's beloved Grandma goes missing on Christmas Eve. To the disbelief of his doting parents, rebellious sister and fun-loving Grandpa, Jake sets out on the quest of a lifetime — to save the family store from his conniving, greedy cousin Mel, track down Grandma…and prove that Santa Claus is indeed real.
