OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes Premieres Tonight On Cartoon Network USA

Tonight (01/08/2017) at 6.15pm ET/PT and immediately after the first episode of the Teen Titans Go!: The Night Begins To Shine miniseries, Cartoon Network USA (and also Cartoon Network Canada at 7.30pm ET/PT) will premiere their latest original animated show – OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes and a whole one hour block of new episodes will air tonight. The latest action-comedy cartoon from Cartoon Network Studios is about an optimistic kid named K.O. who dreams of becoming the world’s greatest hero in a video-game like world full of good guys and villains. The show is set in a retail park called Lakewood Plaza Turbo, where K.O. works at Gar’s Bodega, a store that specialises in hero supplies with his two friends Rad and Enid, all three work together to protect the plaza from robots and their most feared competitor – Lord Boxman and his Boxmore factory. K.O.’s mom – Carol is a martial arts expert and runs a dojo fitness centre at the plaza.

The show’s setting was inspired by Ian Jones-Quartey’s childhood home of Oakland Mills, Maryland, USA. As a kid, Ian used to practice drawing by pausing Looney Tunes videos and drawing each character, from a young age he shown an interested in animation. After graduating from High School, Ian studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York, where he met future Steven Universe show creator – Rebecca Sugar. Ian went on to work on Adult Swim’s The Venture Bros, Secret Mountain Fort Awesome at Cartoon Network Studios, Bravest Warriors at Frederator, Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time and his most senior role before working on OK K.O.! – supervising director and co-developer of Steven Universe. Cartoon Network’s chief creative officer – Rob Sorcher was impressed by Ian’s work and he was given a chance to create his animated pilot – Lakewood Plaza Turbo (released in 2013) which became the basis of what we now know as OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes today. Ian also voices Radicles (better known as his nickname – Rad) in the show.

Ian Jones-Quartey, the show’s creator summed up the show in his own words:

“I would describe it as, it’s about three best friends who work together, and they’re superheroes, and everybody on Earth is a superhero, and they fight robots, and they punch robots, and the robots explode. If any of that sounds good to you, then I think you’ll be down for the show.”
