Gumball VIP is a special programming event specially created for fans of The Amazing World of Gumball. Also during half-term, Cartoon Network UK will be airing new episodes of The Amazing World of Gumball and Teen Titans Go! in a half-term takeover!.

The unique experiment will involve using the “Gumball VIP” mobile app, the app uses audio recognition technology, by using audio recognition, the app detects the episode of The Amazing World of Gumball the viewer is currently watching. The app will work with episodes marked with the “VIP” logo and “VIP” episodes will air everyday at 5pm. After the app has successfully detected the episode, the app will then fetch questions relating to the episode to test the viewer’s knowledge. The mobile app is free to download for Android and iOS devices.

By answering questions correctly you’ll be awarded stars and trophies can be unlocked by collecting a certain amount of stars. With each new trophy, you’ll also receive a special code to access digital prizes on the website and you’ll be able to enter the special Gumball VIP prize draw competition.

From The Turner UK Press Release: It’s Hero Time! Gear Up For Ten Out Of Ten Action With Ben 10 Challenge

It’s officially “Hero Time” as Cartoon Network brings to you Ben 10 Challenge – a brand-new and exhilarating live-action gameshow giving British kids a once-in-a-lifetime chance to become their favourite boy hero, Ben 10! Ben 10 Challenge launches on Friday 13th October at 4pm on Cartoon Network and rolls out every Friday onwards.

Hosted by Nigel Clarke, the live-action gameshow features a range of physical and mental challenges – testing your speed, strength and other Ben 10 villain-conquering skills. From collecting aliens and testing your knowledge of the series, to transforming into XLR8 and racing across hot lava, this show is filled with fast-paced action and excitement from start to finish.

Commenting on his role as the host of the show, Nigel Clarke said:

“I was so excited when Cartoon Network asked me to be the host of the Ben 10 Challenge. The set for this game show is absolutely incredible and we’ve got loads of fun interactive games that will test both the contestants’ physical strengths and knowledge of Ben 10. My ultimate favourite game is when a member from each team gets transformed into the Ben 10 alien Stink Fly and they must fly through the air to collect points for their team – it’s so much fun to watch! I think that both new and existing fans of the Ben 10 animation are going to love Ben 10 Challenge and will get behind the teams and want them to succeed.”

In Ben 10 Challenge watch teams of two kid fans together with an adult complete three action-packed contests, before the team with the highest score goes into a final high-octane challenge against the clock.
