What's hot on Showtime this Ramadan.

Ramadan is a time for families to get together and enjoy each other's company and Showtime aims to have entertainment covered for this special time.

The channel has crime fighting turtles, streetwise rats, talking monkeys, a green ogre, sky bound pirates and arachnid action at it's finest with Spider-Man.

The first CGI-animated instalment of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, kicks off with some high-kicking antics of the mutant amphibians. A wandering ancient conqueror, his stone soldiers, 13 monsters and a star alignment that occurs every 3,000 years combine to bring the Turtles out of their slumber and return to their crime-fighting roots.

It's all cisterns go in Flushed Away when Roddy the mouse finds himself in the drainage system beneath London after streetwise rat Sid flushes him down the loo. Discovering a vast metropolis murkily mirroring the city above, Roddy hooks up with sewer scavenger Rita to do battle with the villainous Toad.

The storybook adventures of cheeky monkey Curious George have been entertaining the world's under-eights since 1941. His first swing at the movies is a splashy cartoon caper which features The Man with the Yellow Hat, a trip to the jungle, a jaunt round New York and lots of paint.

Everyone's favourite ogre returns for a third outing in Shrek The Third which sees our jolly green giant struggling to contemplate the idea of running a kingdom and his impending fatherhood in this third adventure of the world's favourite ogre.
