Disney Sets Premiere For Stanley
The Disney Channel will premiere its new animated series, STANLEY, in September 2001 as part of a Playhouse Disney block. In addition to airing mornings on the Disney Channel, the series will air in primetime on the recently announced Playhouse Disney network scheduled to launch in early 2002. The interactive, learning-based series was created and executive produced by Jim Jinkins (DOUG) and David Campbell's (PB&J OTTER) Cartoon Pizza Productions, in association with the Disney Channel. The show is based on characters from the popular STANLEY children's book series by Griff and follows the adventures of six-year-old Stanley Griff, an imaginative and creative little boy who is wild about animals.
