Cartoon Network to launch three new franchises

Cartoon Network will launch three new franchises—Power Zone, Cartoon Cartoon Fridays and Acme Hour—on April 23, May 4 and June 1, respectively. All the new franchises would be available in both Hindi and English. The network plans to re-launch its Toon Tamasha block as a weekend franchise.
