Cartoon Network is about to take viewers back to the Dark Ages.

Produced by France’s TeamTO and Belgium’s Thuristar, My Knight and Me revolves around loyal, street-smart Jimmy the Squire (Jules de Jongh); his best friend, the fun and daring Cat the Princess (Kaycie Chase); and his father Henri of Orange (David Gasman), a charmingly inept but passionately chivalrous knight who might not be the most efficient protector of the realm, but he sure is the funniest. Together, they set out to make the Dark Ages a little brighter and a whole lot more fun. Check out a sneak peek of the episode titled “The Cat and the Swan” above.

The series debuted in the UK this year on Turner’s Boomerang and will continue to premiere on Turner channels in additional EMEA, Latin America and Asia-Pacific. It was created and directed by Joeri Christiaen and co-produced with Canal+ Family and TéléToon+ (France), SuperRTL (Germany) and VRT-Ketnet and RTBF-Ouftivi (Belgium).
