Zap2it is the only listing site that lists Pucca as airing this Friday on Disney XD.

Last I checked, Disney owns Hulu so if they're getting their own schedules wrong then I don't know how they list the show airing if there seemingly is no acknowledgement from the promos or commercials. We'll have to wait and see if this listing is definite.

Hulu pulls their schedules from Zap2it. Disney doesn’t send there schedules directly to it.

Honestly, that's disappointing. Disney XD doesn't even have anything special on that day and the only special thing they have on this weekend is a Big City Greens marathon. It's like anything relating to Disney XD is a complete tease.

also that's a bit contradicting, you said to never trust TV listings and yet you post a TV listings page. Granted, this is the same schedule on other main schedule sites, but still.

Either way, I'm gonna record from 12-3pm on Hulu to make sure that this isn't real or not. Again, everything else in the CORRECT schedule is right except for that strange 12-3pm block. The reason is that I'll be away at that time to see a film so I won't be able to confirm anything yet, but I'm sure people will be here to confirm.

It sort of baffles me how this was swept under the rug as if nothing happened. Every other listing page had it correct, so does that basically mean Zap2It is basically unreliable?

It looks like Pucca did end up marathoning on Disney XD Asia at noon on Valentine's Day, which might just explain where the mix-up could have come from.

Still a bit disappointing it didn't happen here, but at least now we at least partially know why Gracenote was listing it.

Kind of find it hard to believe that Disney XD Asia still airs old Jetix content, especially in such HD quality and in wide-screen. I would say that putting those on a late night block in the US would work but advertisers and companies aren't going to try and take a leap when they could alienate the current audience of the channel.

Disney XD isn't that type of network where they'd try that strategy, even though we know that the other channels have done this by putting the shows on a block or streaming service. (i.e: NickRewind, Boomerang).

I'm not saying they can't, they just don't want to have to go through the hassle of buying back the rights to those shows on a late timeslot which would've made Jetix a household cable network. Jetix was essentially Disney's testbed to acquiring shows that weren't necessarily Disney but still created it's own original content and experimented with the idea of an action focused network.

Again, sorry for that little tangent but it's great to know that Disney still cares about the content they've created in international markets, even if it's not the US. I do hope Disney+ ends up getting these shows but I can understand the struggles they may have to trying to reacquire rights in the US.

Happy Birthday to the great Akira Toriyama!
Today, variety in my country's Cartoon Network's schedule has died.
I'm Planning to make a New Qubo schedule With Several New and Returning Shows (With one of them being Jacob Two-Two), No Paid Programming and the Return of the 4 hour Marathons.
Today marks the 10th Year Anniversary of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and the 7th Year Anniversary of its series finale. It ended up becoming my favorite adaptation of the Scooby-Doo Franchise and found out about Lewis Black by name (I had heard his voice in some earlier shows).
Happy birthday to Akira Toriyama. My moniker here should make it clear that I am a fan of the DB Franchise.
