Players compete as popular XD personas Perry ("Phineas and Ferb"), Kick ("Kick Buttowski - Suburban Daredevil,"), Jack ("Kickin' It"), Brady ("Pair of Kings") or Zeke ("Zeke and Luther") to try and pop all the opponents' balloons and remain the last one standing. Players must pass all five different levels relating to the hit series -- Agent P's Lair, Mellowbrook Park, Bobbi Wasabi Dojo, Island Paradise and Riot Skate Park.

The schedule is as follows:

Sunday, July 24 (All times ET/PT)


7:30 p.m. -- "Wizards of Waverly Place"

8:00 p.m. - "Shake It Up"

"Break It Up" - CeCe, Rocky, Flynn, Deuce and Ty head to Lake Whitehead for a week-long summer vacation.

Meanwhile, Gunther and Tinka's family coincidentally rent a house next door and try to help Flynn overcome his fear of the Lake Monster.

8:30 p.m. - "Good Luck Charlie"

"Sun Show, Part 1" - In the first installment of a two-part new episode, it's Bob and Amy's 20th wedding anniversary, and to everyone's surprise, the usually stingy Bob surprises the entire family with a trip to Hawaii. Unbeknownst to them, the trip is complimentary if Bob attends a day-long seminar as part of a time share presentation. Upon arrival, Teddy wants to get surfing lessons from the cute instructor Kai (Boo Boo Stewart), and PJ and Gabe go on a helicopter ride with a scarily unpredictable pilot. Meanwhile, Amy ignores the advice of a local and is cursed when she steps on forbidden sacred ground, as Bob keeps trying to dodge the seminar.
