Nicktoons Announces March 11 Premiere of Classic Yu-Gi-Oh! AnimeMarch 4, 2013 at 9:15 pm | Posted in Duel Monsters, English dubbed, Yu-Gi-Oh! | 8 Comments
After a false start in mid-January that left fans disappointed and scratching their heads, Nicktoons announced earlier this evening on Facebook that the Classic Yu-Gi-Oh! anime will indeed be coming to the popular cable network, with the premiere set for next Monday, March 11 at 8:00 pm EDT! The show will air each weeknight, Monday through Friday, at 8:00 and 8:30 EDT.
Yu-Gi-Oh! was originally slated to premiere on Nicktoons on January 14 earlier this year, but was abruptly pulled from the schedule at the last minute. The network did not release a statement explaining the change. Even after Yu-Gi-Oh! was removed from its line-up, Nicktoons left a link to the show’s dedicated page on its homepage and continued to update it with new content, adding additional character descriptions, details about the show, and improved graphics. (I, for one, am grief-stricken over the removal of the image of Yami’s giant hand!)
Here’s hoping Nicktoons follows through with its scheduling this time. Don’t let us down!
