Beverly Hills, CA; April 19, 2021: Genius Brands International, Inc.
(“Genius Brands”) (NASDAQ:GNUS) announces the official launch of Stan
Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten, which premieres on April 23rd and
streams exclusively on Kartoon Channel!
Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten is one of the last creations from the
genius mind of the late Stan Lee and stars the voice of none other than
real-life action hero star Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is also an executive
producer on the series. This exciting, new action-adventure comedy series
for kids and families focuses on the adventures of six unique kids who are
learning to master their super skills, along with their ABCs. With the help of
their teacher Arnold Armstrong (AKA Captain Fantastic, the greatest
superhero to ever live!), they will learn the values of teamwork and health
while also protecting their town from rivals. Premiering April 23
, the series
includes 26 half-hour episodes with a brand-new episode dropping each
week on Kartoon Channel!.
Schwarzenegger stated: “This is a deeply personal project for me and I
am so pumped to introduce it to the world. Not only has it allowed me to
bring to life the work of the fantastic Stan Lee, but the series also touches
on subjects I’ve spent my life working on, from health and fitness tips and
anti-bullying messages to inclusivity and diversity. It brings me great joy to
share that messaging with kids in a way that is vibrant, dynamic and most
important – fun! It’s an honor to have worked with Stan Lee and I know he
would be proud of the message we’re delivering.”
With great power, comes great MESS! The school day at Superhero
Kindergarten is a lot like that at any other kindergarten…except these six
extraordinary students have a secret… They are superheroes!
It all began five years ago when Arnold Armstrong faced off in a final fight
against his nemesis, the evil Dr. Superior, that left him powerless. Little did
anyone know that during the fight, super-energy particles rained down on a
group of unsuspecting toddlers. Now, those toddlers are kindergarten
students at Greenville Elementary School who, with the help of Arnold
Armstrong, must learn to control their powers as they go on super
adventures! Arnold Armstrong’s mission: to train these kids to use their
super-powers safely and without wrecking the school or revealing their
Fun for the whole family, Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten brings the
very best superhero storytelling to a new generation of kids and fans, full of
action, comedy, heart and the quality of content synonymous with Stan Lee.
The series includes 26 half-hour episodes that will be rolled out weekly.
