Nicktoons Announces March 11 Premiere of Classic Yu-Gi-Oh! Anime

Yu-Gi-Oh! premieres next Monday, March 11, on Nicktoons

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.

Check out the promo video and Nicktoon’s Yu-Gi-Oh! page for more details and goodies!

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!

And for those of you who need your daily Yu-Gi-Oh! fix but don’t subscribe to cable, head over to Hulu, where you can watch Classic Yu-Gi-Oh!, GX, 5D’s, and Zexal all for free!

  1. THAT’S what I tried to tell you!

  2. Except for the promo video and updates part.

  3. And have you noticed that in some of the episodes Nicktoons shows, whenever they return from commercial, the audio and the video don’t sync well, and after the end credits in all of the episodes, the Nickelodeon logo shows up; the only closing logo on there?

  4. I don’t normally watch Yu-Gi-Oh! on TV, but I will check it out. The audio-video sync issue you described certainly isn’t created intentionally. Let Nicktoons know where you saw it and I’m sure someone will take a look at it.

  5. And when the show airs on late nights, the dub closing credits are intact, without the Nickelodeon logo. AND Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL will make its Nicktoons debut on April 12 at 9p, as they announced just now.

  6. And since now, the 4K Media logo appears at the end of each dubbed episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL.

  7. What’s Yami giant hand?

  8. There’s a picture of it in my original January 14 Nicktoons post.
    But today’s your lucky day. I’ve found a better, un-resized image saved on my hard drive. I present to you: Yami’s giant hand.
