There will be a second season of Cartoonito’s original preschool series “Batwheels” for Cartoon Network and HBO Max.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, season one launched this fall and became Cartoon Network’s No. 1 original preschool series with boys ages 2-5 this year and the No. 1 original preschool show on HBO Max, according to Warner. “Batwheels” marks DC’s first-ever Batman preschool show featuring a CGI-animated iteration of the Caped Crusader.
“Batwheels” follows a group of young, sentient super vehicles — Bam (the Batmobile), Bibi (the Batgirl Cycle), Redbird (Robin’s racecar), Buff (the Bat-Truck) and Batwing (the Batplane)— as they help Batman, Batgirl, and Robin keep the streets of Gotham City safe.
The series features the voices of Ethan Hawke as Batman, Gina Rodriguez as Catwoman, Jacob Bertrand as Bam the Batmobile, Xolo Maridueña as Snowy the Snowcrawler, Crew Kingston Miskel as Redbird, Madigan Kacmar as Bibi, Noah Bentley as Buff, Lilimar as Batwing, Kimberly D. Brooks as The Batcomputer, Mick Wingert as Moe, AJ Hudson as Duke Thomas/Robin, and Leah Lewis as Cassandra Cain/Batgirl, among others.
Based on characters from DC, “Batwheels” is produced by Warner Bros. Animation.

“It’s been a joyride seeing how ‘Batwheels’ resonated with audiences, and in such a short amount of time. It delivered everything we hoped it would in introducing Batman to the youngest viewers while allowing parents to enjoy their favorite DC Super Hero with their kids,” Michael Ouweleen, president of Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Discovery Family and Boomerang, said in a statement. “Reimagining Batman’s iconic mythos for preschoolers using beloved and original characters has been a creative feat that we will definitely lean into as we expand into a second season.”
“‘Batwheels’ gave preschoolers an animated Batman story to call their own,” Sam Register, president of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, said in a statement. “We’re excited to continue to build on this cool and fun world alongside our partners at Cartoon Network and HBO Max.”
