The upcoming episode, “Rev and Let Rev,” will premiere Monday, Nov. 21 at 10:00 a.m. on Cartoon Network’s Cartoonito block and stream next day on the Cartoonito hub on HBO Max.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, “Batwheels” marks DC’s first-ever Batman preschool series, offering young viewers a high-speed, vibrant CGI-animated iteration of the Caped Crusader. Little ones and their families will ride along with an amazing team of super-vehicles—Bam (the Batmobile), Bibi (the Batgirl Cycle), Redbird (Robin’s racecar), Buff (the Bat-Truck), and Batwing (the Bat-plane)—as they help Batman, Batgirl, and Robin keep the streets of Gotham City safe. Whether it’s facing down the Legion of Zoom or one of Gotham City’s notorious Super-Villains, the Batwheels will use their incredible gadgets and creative teamwork to save the day.
Underneath the superhero adventures, “Batwheels” teaches children about what it means to be a hero through its unique “Hero” curriculum. The curriculum aligns with Cartoonito’s Humancentric Learning framework that encourages kids to become the best version of themselves. Every “Batwheels” episode demonstrates a different character strength—self-awareness, concern for others, perseverance, and courage, among others—in overcoming personal and interpersonal challenges and will model how heroes contribute to the greater good.
