Earlier this week, Disney released a brand new animated series, “SuperKitties” on Disney Junior and Disney+ in the United States. The new series is an adorable and action-packed series about four fierce and furry superhero kittens — Ginny, Sparks, Buddy and Bitsy — who are on a mission to make their town of Kittydale a more caring and “pawesome” place.
Geared to kids ages 2-7 and their families, each episode features two 11-minute stories that highlight the SuperKitties as they receive a “SuperKitty Call” from one of their animal friends with a problem that only the SuperKitties can help with (usually caused by one of the comedic villains in the series ― Cat Burglar, Mr. Puppypaws, Lab Rat or Zsa-Zsa). With plenty of super skills and gadgets at their disposal, the SuperKitties set off to thwart the villains’ plans and impart important messages of kindness, empathy, friendship, resilience and problem-solving along the way.
Today, during the Winter Television Critics Association, which has been taking place at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, California, Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television, announced that the show will be returning with a second season.
White “SuperKitties,” only debuted this week, but it is off to an impressive start, with the series’ theme song racking up over 500,000 views on Disney Junior YouTube since it was released just three weeks ago.
The “SuperKitties” voice cast includes Emma Berman (Disney-Pixar’s “Luca”) as Ginny, Cruz Flateau (“CoComelon”) as Sparks, JeCobi Swain (ABC’s “Home Economics”) as Buddy, and Pyper Braun (“Country Comfort”) as Bitsy.
Voicing the recurring comedic villains in the series are Justin Guarini (“American Idol”) as Cat Burglar, James Monroe Iglehart (Broadway’s “Aladdin”) as Mr. Puppypaws, Ruth Pferdehirt (“Finding Nemo: The Musical”) as Lab Rat, and Isabella Crovetti (“Vampirina”) as Zsa-Zsa the cockatoo.
The series is created and executive produced by Emmy Award winner Paula Rosenthal (“Peter Rabbit”). Emmy Award-winning producer, director and storyboard artist Kirk Van Wormer (“Transformers: Prime) is co-executive producer. Keith Harrison Dworkin (“UglyDolls”) is a songwriter, and Vidjay Beerepoot (“Minnie’s Bow-Toons”) is composer. Carmen Carter (“Dancing with the Stars”) performs the series’ theme song. The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television – Kids (formerly known as Silvergate Media) in association with Disney Junior.
