When an action-filled superhero show is combined with comedy, there’s no way it could go wrong. Right? OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes premiered as a TV series on August 1, 2017 on Cartoon Network, but the overall series has had quite a past on the network. It all started when creator Ian Jones-Quartey, who has also worked on other Cartoon Network series such as Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Secret Mountain Fort Awesome & more, created a pilot for a series called Lakewood Plaza Turbo that aired on May 21, 2013. That later evolved to OK K.O., which started out as a short series three years later in 2016. There was also a mobile game that was even developed for the series called OK K.O.! Lakewood Plaza Turbo. Confused? Well all you need to know is that the series is officially called OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes, and the show seems to have a bright future ahead when it comes to ratings and building a franchise. In fact, it already has a growing fanbase to back it up. As for the actual content of the series, I find that it pays homage to a lot of other action-filled series in the past. It reminds me of a show that I would’ve seen on Kids WB when it was still around. What I can definitely say is that this show will not leave you un-amused or uninterested. The show has some interesting story lines and some hilarious gags. What I also want to note is that the animation also stands out. It has a sort of mixture between classic and contemporary look to it. This colorful show stands out nonetheless, and you should definitely give it a watch.
