Get Ready for an Endless Explosion of Creativity and Positivity
CARTOON NETWORK GREENLIGHTS UNIKITTY! SERIES
FROM WARNER BROS. ANIMATION
Series Stars Fan-Favorite Character From Global Blockbuster The LEGO® Movie
Burbank, Calif. – Cartoon Network is transporting viewers to a joyous kingdom full of sparkle matter, happy thoughts and the occasional rage-out in Unikitty!, an all-new animated series produced by Warner Bros. Animation. The series follows Unikitty, the beloved character from The LEGO® Movie, and a whole cast of friends into a world full of adventure, excitement and dance parties.
As ruler of the kingdom, Unikitty has busy days full of royal responsibilities. Unikitty is most interested in making sure everyone is happy and ridding the kingdom of negativity, but don’t misunderstand her optimism – she is one kitty not to be crossed. While she may be full of boundless energy and creativity, Unikitty is a force to be reckoned with if anyone gets in the way of spreading her positive vibes, especially if anyone makes her little brother and best friend, Puppycorn, sad. Also living in the castle are Dr. Fox, the resident scientist, and Unikitty’s trusty bodyguard, Hawkodile. Through it all, Unikitty and her friends make sure that every day is the happiest and most creative ever.
Cartoon Network has long partnered with The LEGO Group to bring compelling entertainment to kids with series and specials like LEGO DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered, LEGO Star Wars™: The Empire Strikes Out, LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles, Legends of Chima, NINJAGO: Masters of Spinjitzu and Mixels. Unikitty! is also the latest series from Warner Bros. Animation produced for Cartoon Network, joining Teen Titans Go! and Justice League Action.
Unikitty! features veteran voice actors Tara Strong (Teen Titans Go!) and Grey Griffin (Be Cool Scooby-Doo!) along with Kate Micucci (Be Cool Scooby-Doo!), Roger Craig Smith (Regular Show), Eric Bauza (The Adventures of Puss in Boots) and H. Michael Croner (Review).
