The Kids' WB, the top-rated over-the-air animation venue, has released some preliminary information about its 2005-2006 season.  Yu-Gi-Oh! will be back for its fifth season and the venerable Pokemon series returns for season eight.  The Batman returns for a second season and it appears that Batgirl will be along for the ride.  The Batman will also get the final (and coveted) 4:30 pm (ET, PT) spot on the daily Kids' WB block, which will also include Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh! and Xiaolin Showdown.


The stylish new The Batman series will also get a spot on the Cartoon Network (the cable-based sister of the Kids' WB) Toonami Block starting on Saturday, April 2nd when it will join two other DC Comics-based series, Teen Titans and Justice League Unlimited.  In April the Cartoon Network will also begin showing the DC-based Krypto the Superdog series on a daily basis (Monday through Friday) at 9am (ET, PT).
