In addition, Disney XD will celebrate this year's spookiest holiday by unveiling a ghoulish slate of Halloween-themed episodes, during its "Monster-Sized Monday Mayhem" programming event Monday, October 15, beginning at 7:00 p.m., ET/PT.

Filled with grand battles, cool creatures, and themes of friendship, courage and honor, "Slugterra" follows the heroic journey of teen Eli Shane and his best friends, the Shane Gang, as they fight for justice in the mysterious, high-tech underground world of Slugterra. Eli is determined to follow in his father Will Shane's footsteps, and become Slugterra's greatest slugslinger. In order to master the art of slugslinging, Eli must collect, train and learn the art of dueling with magically powered critters called slugs, who transform into battling creatures. Eli and his team "slug it out" to try and protect the citizens of Slugterra from the evil Dr. Blakk, before he takes over this mystical underground world.

"Slugterra" was created and is executive produced by Asaph Fipke and features the voice talent of Sam Vincent ("Voltron Force") as Eli; Lee Tockar ("George of the Jungle") as Pronto; Shannon Chan-Kent ("My Little Pony") as Trixie; Andrew Francis ("Voltron Force") as Kord; and Mark Oliver ("Shadow Raiders") as Dr. Blakk.
