It’s a kid-tacular Christmas!

The kids may be indoors this festive season but you can bring them all the merriment of the season, only with DStv

As we head into a different kind of festive season this year, let’s not leave the joy of Christmas behind. Instead, gather the family around for fun-filled days of the best kids’ entertainment. Henchmen adds excitement to the year-end by showing the villain’s side of the story while Urmel will delight the little ones with its quirky main character. Lovers of Paw Patrol will be happy with the Paw Patrol Ultimate Rescue Marathon airing on NickJr (DStv Channel 307) on Saturday, 19 December and many kids’ channels will be airing holiday episodes from your favourite shows.

What to watch this week

Henchmen (Brand new, Animation, Comedy)

Having dreamt of being a villain his entire life, a wide-eyed comic-book fanboy joins the Union of Evil to become a hardened villain’s apprentice. But when a supervillain threatens the world, it’s up to this henchman and his friends to stop him. This comedic animated film features the voices of James Marsden, Rosario Dawson and Nathan Fillion.

Urmel (Brand new)

Based on the books by Max Kruse, this reimagining of the one-of-a-kind creature is an inspiring and playful tale. As neither a dragon, dinosaur or mammal, Urmel finds himself on the Island of Happening where he encounters a colourful group of talking animals and the brilliant but scatterbrained scientist, Professor Tiddlypom.
