Excerpted from the Press Release:
4Kids Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: KDE) today announced "THE FIGHT FOR THE FOX BOX” primetime special will air Sunday, August 31, at 7:00 p.m. (ET) on the FOX Network. The special episode will provide kids and their parents an exclusive look at the exciting lineup of weekly animated fun on 4Kids Entertainment's FOX BOX, which will launch its second season on Saturday, September 6 (8:00 AM-12 NOON ET/7:00-11:00 AM CT/PT).
“THE FIGHT FOR THE FOX BOX” features a mysterious evil mastermind that has stolen the FOX BOX broadcast codes — knocking the network off the air. His plan is to turn control over to the most diabolical group ever … mad geniuses like Dr. K, King Dedede, Dr. Eggman, the dMp and the Shredder. We can only imagine the type of insidious programming these villains will show on our beloved FOX BOX. They could destroy Saturday mornings … forever! It's up to an unprecedented teaming of our heroes — the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Kirby, Sonic, Cubix, the Funky Cops and Kid Muscle — to recover the stolen codes, restore the FOX BOX and save Saturday mornings! The new fall lineup on FOX BOX welcomes a star right from the video game world - Sonic the Hedgehog, debuting in the all-new series SONIC X … SHAMAN KING, a spirited adventure that takes place in a world where anything is possible … And FUNKY COPS, an outrageous new comedy following two detectives who are saving San Francisco – with disco!
September 6 also marks the FOX BOX premiere of CUBIX after two strong seasons on Kids' WB!, as well as the return of TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, KIRBY: RIGHT BACK AT YA! and ULTIMATE MUSCLE: THE KINNIKUMAN LEGACY.
