Here are descriptions of the new series:
BOLTS & BLIP
BFFs Bolts & Blip are just your average everyday robots who desperately want to become cool battle-bots and play in the coveted Lunar League of Robotic Sports. When the pair finally get their wish, they realize they are in over their heads, and soon discover what they are really made of as they battle against formidable foes such as the Tread Heads, Blood-Bots, Galaxy All-Stars, and the eccentrically evil Dr. Blood. The 26 episode, half-hour series is produced by ToonBox Entertainment in partnership with South Korea’s Red Rover Co. Ltd.
DREAM DEFENDERS features Zane and Zoey, twins and rivals who serve as the last line of defense between the Real World and the nightmare creatures of the Dreamworld. Controlled by the evil Icela, ruler of Dreamworld, the nightmares have come to life and are threatening to break through and take control. Only Zane and Zoey, and their supercomputer Zeus, stand in Icela’s way. The 26 episode, half-hour series is produced by Tiny Island Productions.
