  • Double Decker: Special Teachers from 3 - 25 September
  • My Dad The Rock Star ? 3 September. When Principal Malfactor shuts down the Music Program in Willy's school, Rock offers to fund the Music Program himself, on one condition... that he teaches the music class!

  • The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron ? 11 September. During Botany class, Miss Fowl accidentally swallows a seed from Jimmy's DNA-accelerated spinach plant. This turns her into a 50-foot plant creature!
  • The Wild Thornberrys ? 17 September. Eliza will stop at nothing to get a look at the gigantic, fierce Komodo Dragon that lives on the Southeast Asian Islands. Her plans are halted when the unexpected arrival of her home-schooling teacher arrives.
