    Vortexx to Air YouTube Sensation Gummibär’s First Television Feature &
               Premiere of Spike Holiday Specials This December

Vortexx on The CW, an affiliate of Saban Brands, today announced special
holiday programming for its five-hour kids television block, airing throughout
December. Viewers can kick-off this year’s festivities with the television
debut of Internet smash hit Gummibär in “The Yummy Gummy Search for Santa,” in
addition to the U.S. premiere of Christmas specials “Spike Saves Christmas”
and “Spike’s Reindeer Rescue.”

Just in time for the season of joy, YouTube sensation Gummibär stars in his
first singing and dancing-filled Christmas special,  “The Yummy Gummy Search
for Santa.” With more than two billion views on YouTube to date, “The Gummy
Bear Song,” is the No. 1 most viewed “Animation” video on YouTube of all time.
In this fun-filled movie, Gummibär and his band of wacky, misfit friends shake
their booties from the North Pole to the tropics on a madcap search for Santa
when he goes missing onChristmas Eve. But when they discover Santa was
abducted by a dance-crazed alien, the fate of Christmas morning rests in the
hands—and feet—of our lovable green gummy bear! Join the gummy craze on
Saturday, December 1 ^ at 8 a.m.

In “Spike Saves Christmas,” an elf and young recruit at Santa Claus’ workshop
named Spike volunteers for a very important mission: to fetch the sack
containing all the letters that the children have addressed to Santa.
Unfortunately, Spike loses the precious mail, and it gets locked in the bank
containing the fish reserve of Ping Ville, the city of penguins. With the help
of Raymond, an older and experienced elf, he decides to break into the
building in order to recover the sack and save Christmas. However, Tony and
Vito, two polar bear burglars, plan to rob the bank on the same night. Viewers
can find out if Spike can save Christmas on December 15 at 8 a.m.

On December 22 at 8 a.m., the Christmas adventure continues with “Spike’s
Reindeer Rescue.” Christmas is approaching and Santa’s workshop is buzzing
with activity as Spike, Raymond and the other elves are working around the
clock in preparation when they get the news that Santa’s reindeer have been
kidnapped. Viewers will watch in suspense as Spike attempts to save Christmas
once again.
