We knew we wanted to get involved with LEGO in a comedy. We had been in business with LEGO on their minifig shows, and exhibiting those on Cartoon Network, and we wanted to create something that would be more of a new world, with new characters, something comedic.

Mixels Cartoon Network

Mixels is centered around a world of colorful creatures who can mix and combine with each other leading to hilarious and surprising results. They are comical, mischievous creatures that live in tribes. Each tribe is based around something unique. The Nixels are annoying and destructive little creatures that wreak havoc over the Mixel Land, trying to tear down and break apart the tribes. They are led by King Nixel.

Aspects

There are a few major aspects that appear in nearly every, if not all, episodes of the show. They are listed below.

Title Card

Main article: Mixels (TV series)/Title Card

A title card appears at the beginning of every episode of Mixels to date. There are both minor and major differences between all of them, but they always include some variant of the Mixels logo, and often combine that with the main scene of the episode.

Action

Each episode always includes at least one Mix or Murp of two different characters. Also included in a select few episodes are Maxes of three of a tribe. There is usually a situation that is fixed using these powers.

Trivia

  • Either the first episode or a promotional advertisement (depending on the theater) appeared before or after trailers, before The LEGO Movie in cinemas on February 7, 2014.
    • There was also a sneak peek on Yahoo.[2]

  • This is the first LEGO TV series without the use of CGI animation (Ninjago and Legends of Chima). Instead, this show used ToonBoom Harmony software with animation by Atomic Cartoons. Then, it was animated traditionally at Digital eMation, Inc and later at Saerom Animation, and also in Flash animation at Big Star Entertainment.
  • In some countries, the shorts end with the Cartoon Network Studios logo, and Vulk inside of it, shouting "Remix!"
    • The Arabic and Italian dubs are the only ones that we know of that dubs this logo, though the dubbed logo seems to only show up on some occasions.
  • The first episode of Mixels to take up a full half-hour is Mixed Up Special. Mixel Moon Madness is the first half-hour episode to follow a single plotline, and A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig is the first half-hour episode to be originally produced as a single episode.
  • Credits are available in Japanese versions of clips.
  • Kraw, Scorpi, and the majority of Background Mixels that appear in the shows' voice actors are currently unknown.
    • However, unlike Kraw and Scorpi, the Background Mixels' voices are known and credited. It is just unsure which voices apply to which Mixels, as the characters are credited under generic names.
  • The Korean version of the show is the only one to have an alternate title card in its respective language.
    • Other languages of the show that translate the title do have a translated logo, but don't use it in episodes, only the apps.
  • In the United States, in addition to airing on Cartoon Network, the shorts have aired on sister network Boomerang - first during March and June 2014.
    • Currently, since the network's January 2015 relaunch, they are still airing.
  • The first few shorts, when uploaded to Cartoon Network's YouTube, included a different version of the Mixels logo which had a yellow-to-orange gradient rather than a solid yellow and took up most of the screen. This version of the logo also appeared on the Series 1-2 prototype bags, meaning it was likely the original logo for the franchise. Despite this, the various Mix splashes use the old gradient text, regardless of the logo.
  • The first season was produced in 2013, including the standalone minisodes from Mixed Up Special.
  • The only countries to air Mixels on a different channel than Cartoon Network are France, which airs it on the kids' channel Gulli, and Spain, which airs it on the affiliated channel Boing, due to there not being a Cartoon Network in that country.
