Batwheels Scores Second Season


The Cartoonito original preschool hit Batwheels has been ordered for a second season for Cartoon Network and HBO Max.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, season one launched this fall. Following its premiere, the series became Cartoon Network’s number one original preschool series with boys ages 2 to 5 this year and is the number one original preschool show on HBO Max.

A half-hour holiday special, Holidays on Ice, is now available to watch on Cartoonito on Cartoon Network and HBO Max. New episodes from the first season will continue to air next year.

“It’s been a joyride seeing how Batwheels resonated with audiences, and in such a short amount of time,” said Michael Ouweleen, president of Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Discovery Family and Boomerang. “It delivered everything we hoped it would in introducing Batman to the youngest viewers while allowing parents to enjoy their favorite DC Super Hero with their kids. Reimagining Batman’s iconic mythos for preschoolers using beloved and original characters has been a creative feat that we will definitely lean into as we expand into a second season.”

Batwheels gave preschoolers an animated Batman story to call their own,” said Sam Register, president of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios. “We’re excited to continue to build on this cool and fun world alongside our partners at Cartoon Network and HBO Max.”
