After a short run of Season Two episodes this past summer, THE AQUABATS! SUPER SHOW! will return to The Hub for the Holiday Season, with the first of three specials, CHRISTMAS WITH THE AQUABATS, set to debut on December 21. News just hit Rock Father HQ this afternoon, and I've got details on all three new Aquabats specials below. Fingers crossed that they bust out their awesome cover of Lindsey Buckingham's "Holiday Road" that I like so much.

"Christmas with The Aquabats!" - Saturday, December 21 at 1 p.m. ET/ 10 a.m. PT

Ricky's perfect Christmas is threatened when the Aquabats arrive in a strange village and are convicted of breaking a law that forbids any Yuletide celebration. Their only chance at saving themselves and Christmas is for the big man himself, Santa, to lend a mitten! The special includes guest stars Matt Walsh ("Veep") as Santa and Robert Smigel ("TV Funhouse," "Triumph the Insult Comic Dog") as the voice of The Krampus.

Christmas with The Aquabats

"Shark Fighter!" - Saturday, December 28 at 1 p.m. ET/ 10 a.m. PT

The Aquabats come face-to-face with mutant land sharks and when the legendary Shark Fighter (Rhys Darby, "Flight of the Concords") arises to take on the Bats, he ends up being the big brother Crash has always wanted.

"Kitty Litter!" - January 19 (2014) at 2 p.m. ET/ 11 a.m. PT

The Aquabats encounter a new villain who blames them for his villainous condition and devises a plot for revenge that uses the cuteness of kittens to battle his enemies.
