Warner Bros. Animation is set to bring a brand new animated Batman holiday special to Cartoon Network, with Merry Little Batman.

The special will be part of Sunday nights’ ACME Night, which kicks off this month and is aimed at getting families to enjoy the night together.

When a six-year-old Damian Wayne finds himself alone in Wayne Manor, he must transform into “Little Batman” in order to defend his home and Gotham City from the crooks and super-villains intent on destroying Christmas.

The adventure will be directed by Mike Roth.

The programming block is also set to include the animated specials Did I Do That to the Holidays? A Steve Urkel Story and as-yet-untitled Looney Tunes cartoon, along with the previously announced Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai animated series. Also featured are a number of Warner Bros. feature films, including Shazam!, Man of Steel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Sherlock Gnomes, Pokemon: Detective Pikachu and Scoob!.

The ACME Night programming block is set to launch on September 19th on Cartoon Network.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
