Despite the sanctions, it seems that Disney Channel in Russia (Kanal Disney) is still getting new shows and dubs. I know that Disney can't close the channel in Russia as they only own 20% of it and its all tied up in contracts etc., but I'm surprised they haven't at least cut their supply of new episodes and new shows.

Yes, that IS true, however The Ghost and Molly McGee (in which you used as reference) premiered in Russia on February 7th 2022, 17 days before the Ukraine war started.

They did premiere Alice's Wonderland Bakery on Kanal Disney in Russia with Russian dubbing during the infamous happenings in Ukraine, which seems like solid enough evidence to me.

Also, Disney Channel Scandinavia and Disney Junior Scandinavia still have Russian audio tracks featuring the exact same Russian dubbings as Kanal Disney, correct?

Remember that the Russian influence doesn't disappear overnight, and Russia doesn't equal Russian language.

Russian is still spoken by a considerable — although decreasing — amount of Sovietized and Eastern Slavic people in the Baltic area, where DC Scandi is available , so it makes sense

1 million Russians in the Baltic states (2017) is not that much... But Russian is also widely understood in Central Asia, Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova.

It's like how American cartoons get dubbed into Mandarin even if they never air in Mainland China. There are a lot of Mandarin speakers in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore and Malaysia.

Yeah, Russian though acts like a Lingua franca, that's why I've mentioned "Sovietized" people (mostly bilingual).

Although English is replacing it: as for Taiwan, that's Mandarin speaking , while for HK quite often AFAIK dubs are in Cantonese .

But still, Mandarin is quite known, kind of like Swiss Germans know standard German too

Are Disney Channel, Nickelodeon and CN dubbed into Cantonese? Wikipedia claims those channels are only in Mandarin. AFAIK, Hongkongers are expected to be bilingual.

I have always found it odd when Hong Kong and Taiwan get separate Mandarin dubs... then just dub it into Cantonese, no??

In the Baltic states yes, in the other countries no.

Disney Channel was actually dubbed into Cantonese back when it used to be available in Hong Kong, but I'm not exactly sure about the other two channels.

You're right!
HBO Go Asia has some Cantonese dubs of CN cartoons, so it is possible that Cartoon Network SEA has Cantonese audio.

Yeah, I thought that; the presentation of the kids channels is all in Cantonese, after all.

@Red Arrow yeah i'm indeed conscious of the fact that English is only replacing Russian in Baltic countries, it's still a power language elsewhere

I've finally done it, after many months, over 100+ sources (which doesn't include the sources on the supplement articles), I've finally completed my article/wiki page about The History of Disney Channel UK 1995-2020.

Posting less going well. No warnings for anything so I think the board agrees. Still present for everything and DO read what you guys say. But if I see something I don't like I keep my damn mouth shut. It's for the best.
20 Years ago today, Discovery Kids on NBC launched , it was my first introduction to Discovery Kids. I didn't have digital cable so I didn't have the channel. I liked Trading Spaces: Boys vs Girls. Tutenstien, Kenny the Shark, Time Warp Trio, Darcy's Wild Life.
Reading about Shea Fontana and watching this video with Ann Austen makes me want to see them collaborate on a project someday.
