A new animated series is taking to the streets of Gotham City, but not quite in the way you might expect. Say hello to Batwheels.
Warner Bros. has announced a new animated series that will be shown both on Cartoon Network and on HBO Max. It’s aimed at the preschool crowd and will follow the adventures of a team of Batfamily vehicles.
The new team of crimefighters will be led by Bam (The Batmobile) and he will be joined by the Batwheels consisting of Bibi (The Batgirl Cycle), Red (The Redbird), Jett (The Batwing), and Buff (The Bat Truck).
“Batwheels is the perfect show to headline our new foray into preschool,” said Tom Ascheim, President, Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics (GKYAC). “I can’t wait for all the aspiring super heroes out there to meet this whole new batch of crime-fighters.”
“From Batman: The Animated Series to Teen Titans Go!, superhero storytelling has definitely been one of our superpowers here at Warner Bros. Animation. We are so excited to bring that expertise over to the preschool space and take something that all kids love, cool vehicles, and give it a turbo boost with Batman,” said Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios.
No premiere date for Batwheels has been announced as of yet.
