KIDS' WB!'S TOP-RATED SCHEDULE INTRODUCES TWO NEW SERIES AND HIGHLIGHTS RETURNING FAVORITES WITH ALL-NEW ADVENTURES: Beginning Saturday, September 11, the new Saturday morning slate launches at 8:00 a.m. ET with the fifth season of Jackie Chan Adventures packed with action-comedy-adventure and finding Jackie and the J-Team's hold on the dark forces starting to unravel when Shendu's teenaged son, Drago, escapes from the Section 13 slammer. The irreverent comedy �Mucha Lucha! Gigante (8:30 a.m. ET) is back with a new title and for its third season - bigger and better - as the three Mascaritas - Rikochet, Buena Girl and The Flea - remain focused on learning the fundamentals of Lucha Libre...Honor, Family, Tradition...and, of course, Donuts!

Teen Titans (9:00 a.m. ET) returns with the hip, young breed of superheroes for its second season of video game playing and high-flying adventures. Last season's other breakout hit Xiaolin Showdown (9:30 a.m. ET) also returns for its second season as the four young monks continue to protect themselves, the powerful Shen Gong Wu and the world from evil...and challenge any and all - including a brand new supervillain - to more Xiaolin Showdowns!

This Fall the saga continues with the next evolution of the popular anim�-adventure Pok�mon: Advanced Challenge (10:00 a.m. ET), following Ash and Pikachu as they continue their journey through the Hoenn Region as Ash strives to become the ultimate Pok�mon trainer. The highly anticipated new animated series The Batman (10:30 a.m. ET) picks up Batman's story in year three: in his mid-twenties, just finding his way as protector, defender and Caped Crusader, while balancing his public persona as billionaire bachelor Bruce Wayne and meeting the classic Rogue's Gallery villains for the first time.

Anim�-hit series Yu-Gi-Oh! returns with its latest installment and fourth season all-new adventure. Da Boom Crew (11:30 a.m. ET), a new hip-hop sci-fi animated series, follows the intergalactic adventures of four orphans who are transported into a parallel universe that strangely resembles the video game world they've created.
