Cartoon Network UK New Show OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes Premieres Monday 9th October
On Monday 9th October at 6.30pm after a new episode of Teen Titans Go!, Cartoon Network UK and Ireland will premiere a brand new show from Cartoon Network Studios – OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes. The show is created by the former supervising director of Steven Universe – Ian Jones-Quartey. OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes is an action-comedy cartoon and follows the titular character – a young boy named K.O. who has the aspiration to become the world’s greatest hero. He has a very long journey to “level-up” to greatness, but his optimism gives him the drive and energy he needs. K.O. meets his new friends – Rad and Enid at Gar’s Bodega and Hero Supply and he even gets employed there. Gar’s Bodega is located Lakewood Plaza, a shopping centre that is under constant attack by robots coming from the Boxmore factory from over the street, which is and owned and ran by the show’s main antagonist – Lord Boxman.
K.O. is a very helpful and cheerful kid and would do anything to protect his friends and the plaza, although he hasn’t got the strength to do so yet, he certainly has the determination, courage (and wackiness) to do so. The show is inspired by video games especially beat-em’-ups and RPG’s, also a brand new OK K.O. video game called OK K.O.! Let’s Play Heroes will be released later this year for PlayStation 4, XBOX One and PC.
