One of the most popular LEGO themes, LEGO City, gets its own television series today. LEGO City Adventures premieres on Cartoon Network in the USA at 11.30am (ET/PT). Ten episodes will make up this first season of animated adventure and comedy.
LEGO City Adventures will see the lives of minifigure residents intertwine as they seek to stop a criminal mastermind. The opening episode, “Cubs and Robbers”, will see a film promotional stunt go wrong – leading to a giant Cubby the Cop balloon cause chaos. “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.
