As Playhouse Disney Canada gets ready to beam into approximately 5.5 million households on November 30, 2007, the new net operated by Astra Media’s Family Channel, has announced its programming lineup for fall/winter 2007 and 2008.

Disney Channel US is supplying 60% of the content and the schedule is chock full of new US series, including Bunnytown, Imagination Movers and Special Agent Oso. Returning shows such as Handy Mandy, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Johnny and the Sprites and Little Einsteins are also on the bill.

The upstart is turning to the likes of Franny’s Feet from Decode Entertainment, Henry’s World and the new season of The Secret World of Benjamin Bear for its Canadian-content portion of the sked.
