Premiere Series: Johnny And The Sprites

Disney Playhouse – Saturdays from 8 December, 12.00pm

Your playful friends, Johnny and The Sprites, bring all new episodes to Saturdays this December on Playhouse Disney. Starting on 8 December is “Ginger and the Shell” – When Ginger finds Lily’s lost shell, she really, really wants to keep it for herself. It takes a song to teach her an important lesson: you don’t always get to “keep what you find” if it belongs to someone else. In “Fuzzie’s Day Off” – The Fuzzies take a song-filled day off, leaving the Sprites to take care of the Grove on their own. The Sprites soon realize exactly how much the Fuzzies do to help them—and realize that a large thank-you is definitely in order.
