Mixels is a groundbreaking global franchise created by the powerhouse partnership of two of the biggest forces in kids’ entertainment - Cartoon Network and the LEGO Group. Mixels is centred around a world of colourful creatures who can mix and combine with each other leading to hilarious and surprising results. They are comical, mischievous creatures that live in tribes of three. Each tribe is based around a unique natural element. The Infernites are fiery and short tempered, but handy for a barbeque. The Cragsters are the industrious mining tribe and the Electroids are a quirky bunch with enough nervous energy to light up the whole world. Nixels, annoying and destructive little creatures, wreak havoc over the Mixel land trying to tear down and break apart the tribes. Mixels will air as two minute shorts every Saturday at 8:00 am starting 15 February 2014.

Steven Universe is the latest original animated comedy series from Cartoon Network Studios. Steven Universe is about the misadventures of a boy named Steven, the ultimate “little brother” to a team of magical guardians of humanity - the Crystal Gems. Steven may not be as powerful as the Crystal Gems or as savvy.  But that doesn’t stop him from joining his sisters - Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl on their magical adventures and somehow finding a way to save the day! It is created by Emmy and Annie Award-nominated writer and storyboard artist Rebecca Sugar. Steven Universe premieres on 16 February 2014 and will air every Sunday at 10:30 am on Cartoon Network.
