Disney Channel Wants Manny To Get Handy In Helping Preschoolers Battle The Flu

Disney Channel is asking Handy Manny to lend preschoolers a hand in the battle against the flu.
The preschool character, the star of the network's show bearing his name, will stress the importance of washing hands and provide other tips on how to prevent the spread of germs, especially during flu season, through a new interstitial segment, premiering Dec. 11 at 9:25 a.m. (ET/PT) during the "Playhouse Disney" block.

The interstitial will recur multiple times daily and will be available at PlayhouseDisney.com, with a link to the Center for Disease Control's flu prevention micro-site and printable tips for parents on how to prevent and treat the flu.
Handy Manny airs weekdays at 9 a.m. and weekends at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. during the Playhouse Disney programming block for preschoolers.
