“Batwheels,” DC’s first “Batman” preschool show, will debut a half-hour prequel special, “Secret Origin of the Batwheels,” on Cartoonito UK on March 18. The episode will tell the backstory of how the Batwheels came to be. The show features a high-speed, CGI-animated iteration of the Caped Crusader. The action-adventure show features the Batwheels, a group of sentient, super-powered crime-fighting vehicles defending Gotham City alongside a host of DC Superheroes. Brought to life by the Batcomputer to help defend Gotham City, the Batwheels are thrust into hijinks and action while learning important life lessons. Led by Bam, The Batmobile, the Batwheels must navigate the challenges of being a newly formed super team as well as the growing pains that come with just being a kid. 

 Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products is working with licensees and partners around the world for a merchandise program coming soon.

 The “Batwheels” cast includes Ethan Hawke (Batman), Jacob Bertand (Bam the Batmobile), Gina Rodriguez (Catwoman) and Xolo Maridueña (Snowy the Snowcrawler), among others. Sam Register (Looney Tunes Cartoons) serves as executive producer, Michael G. Stern (Doc McStuffins) as co-executive producer, Simon J. Smith (Penguins of Madagascar) as supervising producer and Steven Fink of Bang Zoom Ltd. as producer. Based on characters from DC, Batwheels is produced by Warner Bros. Animation with animation services provided by Superprod Studio.
