Saturday, August 16th

(6:00-8:00 PM ET/PT) MULAN

Mulan (Ming-Na Wen) is a brave young woman faced with the terrible reality that her ailing father - too old to be a soldier but too honorable not to be one -- will be killed in battle. Driven by her love and devotion for her family, Mulan makes a decision that will change their lives forever. Disguising herself as a man, she secretly takes her father's place in the Imperial army that is being gathered to meet the threat of invasion by the villainous Hun leader, Shan-Yu (Miguel Ferrer). Accompanied by her feisty, fire-breathing "wanna-be" guardian dragon, Mushu (Eddie Murphy), Mulan trains to be a brave and disciplined warrior and ultimately learns some profound lessons about courage, honor and love. "Mulan" repeats on Sunday, August 17th at 4:30pm ET/PT.

(8:00 -10:00 PM ET/PT) TANGLED

When the kingdom's most wanted and most charming bandit, Flynn Rider (Zachary Levi), hides out in a mysterious tower, he's taken hostage by Rapunzel (Mandy Moore), a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Flynn's curious captor, who's looking for her ticket out of the tower where she's been locked away for years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief, and the unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse (Maximus), an over-protective chameleon (Pascal), and a gruff gang of pub thugs. "Tangled" repeats on Sunday, August 17th at 6:30pm ET/PT.

(10:00 PM- 11:45PM ET/PT) THE LITTLE MERMAID

Ariel (Jodi Benson) is a fun-loving and mischievous mermaid enchanted with all things human. Disregarding her father's order to stay away from the world above the sea, she swims to the surface and, in a raging storm, rescues the prince of her dreams. Determined to be human, she strikes a bargain with the devious sea witch, Ursula (Pat Carroll), and trades her fins and beautiful voice for legs. With her best friend, the adorable and chatty Flounder (Jason Marin), and reluctant chaperone Sebastian (Samuel E. Wright), the hilarious, reggae-singing Caribbean crab, at her side, Ariel must win Prince Eric's love (Christopher Daniel Barnes) and save her father's kingdom, all in a heart-pounding race against time! "The Little Mermaid" repeats on Sunday, August 17th at 8:30pm ET/PT.

(11:45 PM - 2:00 AM ET/PT) POCOHANTAS

Free-spirited Pocahontas (Irene Bedard) and her woodland pals, Meeko (John Kassir) and Flit (Frank Welker), are surprised when they discover the first English settlers on the shores of their village. With the guidance and wisdom of her beloved Grandmother Willow (Linda Hunt) and the friendship of the courageous Captain John Smith (Mel Gibson), Pocahontas must find a way to bridge the divide between the two vastly different cultures. "Pocahantas" repeats on Sunday, August 17th at 10:15pm
