Cartoon Network to launch ‘Lego Mixels’ and ‘Steven Universe’ in the morning band
MUMBAI: Cartoon Network is launching two new shows to make weekends special for its little viewers this February. The channel will launch the popular American series ‘Steven Universe’ and the animated shorts ‘Lego Mixels’.
Premiering on 15 February at 8 am, kids can enjoy the mischievous shorts Mixels every Saturday, while they will be treated to the magical adventures of Steven Universe at 10:30 am on Sunday from 16 February.
Mixels is a global franchise created through a partnership of Cartoon Network and the Lego Group. The series has been created by John Fang of Ben 10 fame along with Dave Smith of the Powerpuff Girls.
Featuring two minute capsules titled as shorts, Mixels centres around a world of colorful creatures that can mix and combine with each other leading to hilarious and surprising results.
The comical, mischievous creatures live in tribes of three and each tribe is based around a unique natural element. The Infernites are fiery and short tempered, but handy for a barbeque. The Cragsters are the industrious mining tribe and the Electroids are a quirky bunch with enough nervous energy to light up the whole world. Nixels, annoying and destructive little creatures, wreak havoc over the Mixel land trying to tear down and break apart the tribes.
Turner International India Pvt Ltd senior director and network head kids South Asia Krishna Desai said, “We are thrilled to launch Lego Mixels and Steven Universe in India that represent Cartoon Network’s illustrious and trans-global portfolio. The partnership with Lego is the next step in the evolution of Cartoon Network Studios and the way we co-develop original IPs. Steven Universe is our latest and biggest original series, that has been creating waves across the world.”
On the other hand, Steven Universe is the latest original animated comedy series from Cartoon Network Studios. The show revolves around the misadventures of a boy named Steven, the ultimate ‘little brother’ to a team of magical guardians of humanity, the Crystal Gems.
Steven may not be as powerful as the Crystal Gems, but that doesn’t stop him from joining his sisters Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl on their magical adventures and somehow finding a way to save the day. The series has been created by Emmy and Annie Award-nominated writer and storyboard artist Rebecca Sugar.
