Kids of all ages – this is what you’ll want to watch this week

There’s a world of adventure waiting this week on DStv. From trips to outer space to learning how toothpaste gets its stripes… you never know what will happen.

Saturday afternoon movies are always a blast with M-Net (DStv 101) and this week is no exception. The Midnight Gang has a Roald Dahl-esque quality that makes it perfect for kids of all ages. After a cricket accident, Tom finds himself in a children’s ward full of quirky characters like a matron who hates children, a shopkeeper with a secret and a porter who gets lost all the time.

A story that celebrates the many ways to make a family, Boy Girl Dog Cat Mouse Cheese is the story of two unique households coming together on Cartoon Network (DStv 301). There’s sibling rivalry, identity crises, and lessons in bravery, compassion and friendship. You can also anticipate loads of laughs. It's a comic adventure for kids of all ages!

There’s adventure aplenty in Leo the Wildlife Ranger on ZooMoo (DStv 314). Representing a new generation of wildlife rangers, Leo is 13 and lives on the south coast of Australia. He is smart, funny and passionate about nature – and he can be a real show-off! Along with Katie (12), who loves catching snakes and frogs, and Hero (14), a strong and stubborn mountain leopard cub, Leo teams up with a host of other animals to make sure their ecosystems stay safe.

DStv is making sure Valentine’s Day is special for little ones with love-themed marathons from all the best shows. Nickelodeon (DStv 305), Cartoon Network (DStv 301) and Boomerang (DStv 302) will bring love to the whole household with episodes by I, Elvis Riboldi; DC Super Hero Girls; Mr Bean; Grizzy and the Lemmings and Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn; and The Thundermans
