That’s why we can’t wait for Saturday night! I’ve already bought the popcorn and set the DVR. We’ll snuggle up on the couch, and we’ll enjoy Handy Manny’s Big Race on Disney. Family nights are my favorite nights, so I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’m looking forward to this. (Almost as much as the kids are looking forward to seeing a new Handy Manny episode!)
Here’s some information about Handy Manny and the Big Race:
Launched in 2006, Disney’s Emmy-nominated animated series “Handy Manny” shares the adventures of Manny, a bilingual handyman, and his talking tools. Geared toward preschoolers, the show helps kids learn important lessons like problem solving and working together while introducing them to Latin culture and common Spanish words and phrases.
Saturday, March 20th a brand new primetime special, “Handy Manny Big Race” will air on the Disney Channel. Guest stars Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Lance Bass join Wilmer Valderrama (the voice of Manny) and the rest of the “Handy Manny” gang as they prepare for the famed Wood Valley 500 race. Manny and the tools team up with Eliot to revamp his used race car, as race time approaches, Elliot’s nerves get the best of him. Famous racecar driver, Chase Davis (Earnhardt, Jr.) and Manny both jump in to help. What happens next? Tune in on March 20th to find out!
