Five shows to get you ready for school holidays

Everyone is waiting for the holidays to begin. Start that summer feeling early with these awesome School of Laughter shows

School is almost out – and we have everything you need to keep the kiddies entertained this week.

Saturday afternoons get a little comedy lift with Pets United. We meet some spoiled pets who find themselves stranded at a luxury pet day care. With no sign of their human owners, the group must band together and find a way out.

There’s a fresh new season of Bunk’d to enjoy. There’s trouble arising when the previously burnt down cabins of camp Kikiwaka have not been rebuilt and the Ross kids need to make a plan before the new campers arrive.

Ever wonder if someone loves your favourite NickTOONS shows like Double Dare and Spongebob Squarepants as much as you? This weekend we see the countdown of the NickTOONS Top 10 shows – and see who gets the title of ‘most watched’ for 2020.

Da Vinci brings a range of edu-tainment with two shows that will teach you interesthing things and make life better. Catch the newest season of Did I Mention Invention? And How To Do Stuff Good for tips and tricks.

Pets United

A motley crew of pampered pets all spend their days at a luxury day care. When a robot invasion scares away all the humans, the spoilt pets must band together and save the day. The high-stakes, action-packed adventure is even funnier as they struggle to overcome their indulgent ways. Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones) lends her voice to this family-friendly film.
