Batwheels, DC's first-ever Batman preschool series, will premiere on Cartoon Network and HBO GO from 16 Oct 2022!
Focusing on the team of super-vehicles, Batwheels offers young viewers a high-speed, vibrant CGI-animated iteration of the Caped Crusader. Follow 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.
Interactive Batwheels Experience
In addition, children can enjoy an interactive Batwheels experience with the ‘Batwheels By You’ online game on the Cartoon Network Asia website. Engaging and encouraging creativity, ‘Batwheels By You’ gets the little ones busy colouring and creating their very own Batwheels team. The game is free to play.
What It Means To Be A Hero
Batwheels will teach 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 will demonstrate 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.
Batwheels will also showcase the value of friendship and teamwork and illuminate the rewards of these skillsets. Moreover, the series will teach children that while each vehicle has super abilities, the more important capacities that fuel their heroism are rooted in their intrinsic character strengths, knowing how to be a good friend and ability to work as a team.
Available From 16 Oct 2022
The series will premiere on Cartoon Network’s (StarHub: 316, Singtel: 226) Cartoonito preschool block on weekends at 9.00am (SGT), and stream on the same day on the Cartoonito hub on HBO GO.
