Emmet this, Wyldstyle that, Benny ‘SPACESHIP!’ whatever… we all know that the real star of The LEGO Movie was Unikitty. So do Cartoon Network, apparently, as they’ve given her a show of her very own to play with.
Simply entitled Unikitty!, it’s an outbreak of serious cool, even featuring a theme by super hot (so that would mean super cool) Japanese metal idol band Babymetal (or ‘BABYMETAL’ if you prefer).
With Tara Strong (The Powerpuff Girls, Teen Titans Go!, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, pretty much every cartoon series ever) voicing the star of the show, the story goes something like this: As ruler of the kingdom, Unikitty – whose efforts to stay positive and avoid negativity no matter what sometimes makes her prone to the “occasional rage-out” – keeps busy with royal responsibilities. Unikitty is most interested in making sure everyone is happy and ridding the kingdom of negativity, but she is a force to be reckoned with if anyone gets in the way of spreading her positive vibes, especially if anyone makes her little brother and best friend, Puppycorn, sad. Also living in the castle are Dr. Fox, the resident scientist, Unikitty’s trusty bodyguard, Hawkodile, and a firey bird, Flain. Through it all, Unikitty and her friends make sure that every day is the happiest and most creative ever.
If all of that isn’t enough to convince you of awesomeness, here’s a sneak preview of the debut Unikitty! episode, Spoooooky Game. Dig that headbanging intro…
