Batwheels Premieres September 17 on HBO Max and Cartoonito


Growing up, Batman, Robin, Batgirl we’re my absolute favorite super heroes.  I never missed an episode.  I’m so excited about this preschool series made especially for kids, starring the bat vehicles. I was given the opportunity to screen the premiere and I have to say that this is a show that older kids and adults are going to want to watch as well.  

The Batwheels and Legion of Zoom have awesome personalities that collide so perfectly.  Gotham City is gonna be a lot more active!  You do not want to miss Batwheels!

Batwheels, DC’s first-ever Batman preschool series, half-hour special “Secret Origin of the Batwheels,”premiering on Batman Day, Sept. 17 on Cartoonito on HBO Max. 

The special will introduce viewers to Bam (the Batmobile), Bibi (the Batgirl Cycle), Redbird (Robin’s Sports Car), Batwing (the Batwing Jet Plane), and Buff (the Bat Truck), and tell the backstory of how this team of young sentient super-powered vehicles came to be.
Following the special, the series will officially launch later this fall on Cartoonito on Cartoon Network and Cartoonito on HBO Max.

When Batman, Robin, and Batgirl are captured, the Batcomputer brings the Bat-Vehicles to life. The newly-minted Batwheels must defend the Batcave and face off with the Legion of Zoom – all without Batman’s help!

They are a team of incredible crimefighters who have banded together to oppose evil, combat crime and clean up the streets of Gotham City.  They are…okay, they’re NOT Batman and Robin.  They’re the Batwheels - an awesome group of sentient super-powered crime-fighting vehicles defending Gotham City alongside Batman, Robin and Batgirl.
Having just been created by the Batcomputer, our heroes are essentially kids with little to no life experience.  Led by Bam (The Batmobile), the Batwheels - Bibi (The Batgirl Cycle), Redbird (Robin’s Sports Car), (Batwing the Batwing Jet Plane), and Buff (The Bat Truck) – must navigate the growing pains of being a newly formed super team as well as the growing pains that come with just being a kid.  This relatable and aspirational series will follow the journey of this dynamic team as they thrill and entertain with their heroic adventures as well as demonstrate to kids the value of self-confidence, friendship and teamwork.
