Adventure Time
GO, 6.30pm, weekdays
IF you think you’re too old for this TV animation, think again.
A series following the adventures of a boy named Finn and his best friend, Jake – a dog with the magical power to change shape and size at will – Adventure Time has developed a strong adult fan base.
Whether it’s because of these fans’ nostalgia for bright-eyed, colourful children’s series, or the show’s latent adult themes and humour, Adventure Time would make a great program to sit down and watch with your child.

While all the Whos in Whoville are enjoying their Christmas celebrations, the Grinch (Jim Carrey) resents all the Christmas
fun they’re having (and even wants to spoil it). Will he be filled with the Christmas spirit?

With the help of soloists, and his Johann Strauss orchestra, Rieu provides a wonderful evening of moving Christmas carols
and emotional songs, such as Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, ‘The Holy City’ and the classic ‘Concierto de Aranjuez’.
