The Lego Movie franchise continues to be fertile ground for spinoffs and licensing, and now Unikitty is getting her own WB Animation produced series for Cartoon Network that promises sunshine and dance parties. No word on when it will debut.
Confession: I have never seen the Lego Movie (don’t judge!) but I’m guessing this will be my little kitty meets bravest Puppycorn.
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.
Voicetalent indlues: 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).
This press release came with
a cute animated gif but it was too large to upload to WordPress. The nice people at Cartoon Network sent me the web ready version of the gif and here it is! It’s cute!
