All the must-see kids shows on DStv this week

It’s time for the Trolls World Tour on M-Net and Jim Jam is giving you edutainment at its best. This and more in DStv’s School of Laughter picks of the week.

There’s never a dull moment with DStv’s School of Laughter – and this week’s line-up has all the ingredients for a grand old time!

Queen Poppy and Branch are back in another great musical adventure. In Trolls World Tour on M-Net (DStv channel 101), they must stop the evil Queen Barb of the rock tribe as she seeks to destroy all musical genres.

Never afraid to help, Thomas and his friends must come to the rescue of Sir Robert Narramby who needs to rebuild his castle in Thomas and Friends: King of The Railway on Jim Jam (DStv channel 310).

There are three little guys who do help a lot but, more often than not, get into lots of trouble. We’re speaking about Alvin, Simon and Theodore who are back for more wild adventures in Alvinnn!!!! And the Chipmunks on Nickelodeon (DStv channel 305). Over on Nick Jr (DStv channel 307), there are more animal antics with back-to-back episodes of Paw Patrol in the ultimate weekend marathon.

And for the tiny tots, Jim Jam’s (DStv channel 310) Educational Block features episodes of Fireman SamGuess with Jess and Berry and Dolly.

Trolls World Tour (Family Musical)

Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect) and Justin Timberlake (In Time) are back to reprise their roles as Poppy and Branch. In this new adventure, they discover there are six different troll tribes across the land and each one specialises in a specific kind of music – funk, country, techno, classical, pop and rock. When rockers Queen Barb played by Rachel Bloom (The Angry Birds Movie 2) and King Thrash (Ozzy Osbourne) set out to destroy the other music, Poppy and Branch embark on a dangerous mission to unite the trolls and save their music before they become extinct. The film also features a voice cast of spectacular talent, including James Corden (The Prom), Ron Funches (Trolls Holiday), Kelly Clarkson, Anderson. Paak, Sam Rockwell (Charlie’s Angels), George Clinton (Kuso) and Mary J. Blige.

Then join Jess the Cat in Guess with Jess, an interactive show that teaches kids to solve problems by “asking, testing and finding a way”.
