Yesterday, the very first episode of an ongoing television series based on LEGO City aired on Cartoon Network. Fans who missed the episode when it aired can watch LEGO City Adventures “Cubs and Robbers” on YouTube, where it has been shared for everyone to see.
In this first episode, Lieutenant Duke Detain comes face to face with a symbol of his childhood – a giant teddy bear balloon.
Nine more episodes are due in this first season of the new show, that airs on Cartoon Network in the USA at 11.30am (ET/PT) on Saturdays. “Billy the Bug”, which will air next week, will see Fire Chief McLoud buy a Twirly Hat for a nephew that goes completely wrong.
“LEGO City is our strongest evergreen property globally, and for the first time we are leveraging episodic content to establish characters and personalities that bring the city to life,” said Jill Wilfert, Vice President, Licensing and Entertainment for LEGO Group, when the series was announced.
Air dates for the rest of the world have not yet been announced.
