CARTOON NETWORK SPLASHES INTO DETROIT WITH SECOND ANNUAL DIVE-IN THEATER TOUR; CARTOON NETWORK TO PREMIER NEW CARTOONS TO A SWIMMING POOL OF KIDS.
Cartoon Network will host a DIVE-IN THEATER at Four Bears Water Park in Utica, Mich., on Monday, August 5, from 7:30-9:30 p.m. DIVE-IN THEATER features hundreds of families watching brand new cartoons on a giant 9 x 12 foot screen while relaxing in floating inner tubes and poolside lounge chairs. DIVE-IN THEATER is sponsored by Booth Communications, Comcast Cablevision, Continental Cablevision, Harron Communications, TCI Cablevision, Time Warner Cable and WKQI/Q95-5.
Guests will be treated to five never-before-seen cartoons from Cartoon Network Studio's World Premiere Toons series, an initiative that is turning out the cartoon superstars of tomorrow as witnessed by its numerous honors and awards, such as two recently announced 1996 Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Animated Program. In addition, DIVE-IN THEATER will feature a sneak preview trailer of The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest, the all-new animated series from Hanna- Barbera Cartoons, Inc. that will debut August 26 on Cartoon Network, TBS and TNT.
Cartoon Network's DIVE-IN THEATER transforms Four Bears Water Park into a kaleidoscope of color for one night. Visitors may either take their places in lounges and chairs that line the pool's deck or take advantage of the best seats in the house -- Cartoon Network inner tubes floating freely in the pool. Poolside festivities will include roaming costumed cartoon characters posing for pictures and a "Cartoon Network Wacky Wheel" that rewards winners with Cartoon Network merchandise and other prizes.
