2009 Comic-Con: Sunday Schedule

comic-con

On Friday, San Diego Comic Con International announced updated Wednesday, Thursday and Friday line-ups for the 2009 convention. On Saturday they unveiled the Saturday schedule. And if you thought the Saturday schedule was television heavy, wait until you see the Sunday line-up.

Sunday is the last day of the convention, and is usually at a time when things begin to get depressing, but the line-up for the day is extremely lackluster. It’s mostly kids television programs like Phineas & Ferb, Ni Hao, Kai-Lan and Wonder Pets!, SpongeBob, Fairly OddParents, The Penguins of Madagascar, and Kamen Rider Dragon Knight. There are some programs for the teens/adults:  Dr. Who, Smallville, American Dad, Supernatural, Ghost Whisperer, Being Human/Torchwood, and Buffy the Musical. Mystery Team and Paper Heart are the only movie panels the entire day.

Head on over to comic-con.org to see everything, or check out our selected television/movie schedule after the jump.
