Set a reminder for these family-friendly shows

Mystery, mischief and loads of fun await the kids - and the rest of the family, too - on DStv’s School of Laughter.

Whether it’s fighting the bad guys or catching monsters, this week’s selection of the best School of Laughter programming will keep the kids (and you!) entertained.

Get those recordings ready, here are our top picks:

Siblings Jan and Dean are stoked to stay with their uncle Woody for the summer holidays, but instead of an endless summer of surfing, they’re in for a “monstrous” surprise in Monster Beach on Cartoon Network (DStv channel 301).

Over on Nickelodeon (DStv channel 305), Captain Man and Schwoz decide it’s time for a new league of superheroes in Danger Force. They recruit four gifted kids to help fight crime – with hilarious results.

The entire family can tune in on M-Net (DStv channel 101) for Patrick the Pug, a pug-tastically adorable film! When a teacher inherits her grandmother’s beloved pug, she gets a lot more than she bargained for.

NickJr (DStv channel 307) is ready to keep the little ones entertained while teaching them valuable life lessons in Barbapapa, while Steve and Blue hunt down clues in Blue’s Clues on NickToons (DStv channel 308).
