Saturday, May 14
(4:15 - 7:00 p.m. EDT) DISNEY - PIXAR'S RATATOUILLE
Despite his family's wishes and the obvious fact that he is a rat, Remy (Patton Oswalt) dreams of becoming a great French chef in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath the same restaurant named famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau (Brad Garrett). Regardless of the apparent dangers of being an unlikely, and certainly unwanted, visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant, Remy's passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race turning the culinary world of Paris upside down. Remy is torn between his calling in life and returning forever to his previous existence as a rat. Along his soul-searching journey, he learns the truth about friendship, family and having no choice but to be what he really is - a rat who wants to be a chef.
(7:00 - 9:15 p.m. EDT) DISNEY'S WRECK-IT RALPH
For decades, Ralph (John C. Reilly) has played the bad guy in his popular video game. In a bold move, he embarks on an action-packed adventure and sets out to prove to everyone that he is a true hero with a big heart. As he explores exciting new worlds, he teams up with some unlikely new friends including feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman). Then, when an evil enemy threatens their world, Ralph realizes he holds the fate of the entire arcade in his massive hands. Disney's "Wreck-It Ralph" repeats on Sunday, May 15 at 5:00 p.m. EDT.
(9:15 p.m. - 11:45 p.m. EDT) DISNEY - PIXAR'S MONSTERS UNIVERSITY
Ever since he was a kid monster, Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) has dreamed of becoming a Scarer. To make his dream a reality, he enrolls at Monsters University. During his first semester, he meets Sulley (John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. Sulley and Mike engage in a fierce rivalry that ultimately gets them both kicked out of MU's elite Scare Program. To make things right, Mike and Sulley -- along with a bunch of misfit monsters -- will have to learn to work together. Disney-Pixar's "Monsters University" repeats on Sunday, May 15 at 7:15 p.m. EDT.
(11:45- 2:00 a.m. EDT) DISNEY'S ALADDIN
When street rat Aladdin (Scott Weinger) frees a genie (Robin Williams) from a lamp, he finds his wishes granted. However, he soon finds that the evil Jafar (Jonathan Freeman) has other plans for the lamp -- and for Princess Jasmine (Linda Larkin). But can Aladdin save Princess Jasmine and his love for her after she sees that he isn't quite what he appears to be? Disney's "Aladdin" repeats on Sunday, May 15 at 9:45 p.m. EDT.
