Come Run the Ben 10Athon This Weekend on Cartoon Network
All weekend long on Cartoon Network, we're celebrating our favorite teenage superhero with an extra-special Ben 10Athon! The fun begins on Saturday, April 5 at 9 a.m. (ET/PT) with "The Vampire Strikes Back," the final installment in the Ben 10 Omniverse three-part Monster Planet arc. In this episode, Ben, Rook and Rad Dudesman come face to face with the evil Lord Transyl, a vampire-like alien who can make anyone his loyal slave. But this bad guy's got another thing coming when Ben breaks out an all-new alien from his Omnitrix arsenal - WHAMPIRE!
The action continues throughout the day until 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) and all day Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. (ET/PT) with special two-part episodes from each of the Ben 10 series: Ben 10, Ben 10: Alien Force, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Ben 10 Omniverse. We'll also showcase feature-length animated and live-action Ben 10 movies during Ben 10Athon, including Ben 10: Alien Swarm and Ben 10: Race Against Time.
To help celebrate the special on-air event, Cartoon Network Enterprises is launching an all-new DVD, Ben 10 Omniverse: Duel of the Duplicates. Available April 8, 2014, the latest home entertainment adventure includes the three-part story arc from the series' first season - "The Ultimate Heist," "A Fistful of Brains" and "For a Few Brains More"- wherein the trio works together to stop Albedo from absorbing Azmuth's intelligence. Two action-packed bonus episodes - "Evil's Encore" and "Return to Forever" are also included on the Ben 10 Omniverse: Duel of the Duplicates DVD, which will be available for a suggested retail price of $14.97. Additionally, we are offering a free sneak-peek of an upcoming episode on iTunes, and past seasons from all Ben 10 series are on sale through April 8.
