Animation comes to life in DisneyXD ’s newest series Kirby Buckets. The laugh-out-loud comedy, starring Jacob Bertrand (Marvin Marvin, Bubble Guppies) as the title character, takes viewers into the vivid imagination of a charismatic 13-year-old boy who dreams of becoming a famous animator. Set to premiere Sunday, October 26 at 7 p.m. ET, the exciting series headlines an action-packed Super Charged Sunday featuring brand new episodes of Mighty Med, Lab Rats and Star Wars Rebels starting at 6:30 p.m. ET.
Mixing live-action and animation, Kirby Buckets follows the outrageous adventures of Kirby and his two best friends, Fish and Eli. The troublesome trio often find themselves navigating their way out of hilarious predicaments before Kirby’s sister, Dawn, and her best friend Belinda catch them. Along the way, Kirby is joined by his animated characters, each with their own vibrant personality that only he and viewers can see.
In the premiere episode, “Cars, Buses and Lawnmowers,” Kirby learns about a character design contest featuring the ultimate prize – a chance to meet his animation icon Mac McCallister and have his character featured
on TV. He, along with Fish and Eli, plan to attend a character design contest, but when they unexpectedly get stuck at school, they devise a scheme that accidentally places them in the middle of “Clown Town,” an abandoned area of the city where creepy clowns reign. Meanwhile, Dawn realizes Kirby plans to use an embarrassing drawing of her titled “Dawnzilla” as his submission for the contest, so she and Belinda do everything in their power to stop him.
In addition to Bertrand the series stars Mekai Curtis (Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day) as confident and smooth Fish; Cade Sutton (The Neighbors) as naïve nice guy Eli; Olivia Stuck (Good Luck Charlie) as Kirby’s crafty older sister Dawn; and Tiffany Espensen (Bucket and Skinner’s Epic Adventures) as Dawn’s best friend Belinda.
Part of Disney XD’s Super Charged Sunday the evening officially kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET with a Halloween-themed Mighty Med titled “Lair, Lair,” where Oliver and Kaz get trapped in space, and Alan attends his first “Normo” Halloween party. Immediately following the Kirby Buckets premiere at 7 p.m. ET, viewers won’t want to miss a brand new Lab Rats leading into an adrenaline-pumping Star Wars Rebels at 8 p.m. ET.
