Here’s a closer look at what’s coming up in March

TURBO DOGS – This hilarious 3-D CGI animated series features a comical cast of canine friends who are wild about race car driving! Set in Racerville, a world filled with dogs of all different shapes, sizes, temperaments and pedigrees, the Turbo Dogs include Dash, the selfless, enthusiastic competitor; GT, the natural-born mechanic who can build an engine from a leash, a collar and empty dog food cans; Mags, the only female Turbo Dog who is anything but girlie; Strut, the dashound who always tries taking shortcuts that backfire; Stinkbert, the dog who spends as much time rolling around at the garbage dump as he does with friends; and Clutch, the good guy with a penchant for klutziness. Accelerated adventures filled with comedic high jinks emphasize friendship, fair play, and teamwork. Among the antics debuting in March:

* Dash is overwhelmed by the responsibility of caring for Mag’s pet Hamster while she’s away on a TV shoot.

* Strut overreacts when he jumps to a conclusion that he wasn’t invited to a piñata party.

* Stinkbert learns the value of friendship after he realizes that he may be related to canine royalty!

TURBO DOGS airs Fridays at 3:30 PM (ET) on ION TV, Noon (ET) Saturdays on NBC and 8:00 AM (ET) Saturdays in Spanish on Telemundo. TURBO DOGS also airs on qubo Channel Sundays at 6 PM and 11 PM (all times ET).

MY FRIEND RABBIT – This charming and whimsical award-winning animated series is based on the Caldecott Gold Medal winning book of the same name by Eric Rohmann.
