You’d be hard-pressed to find a more iconic comic character than Batman. Whether in the pages of a graphic novel, animated series or live-action film, he’s a singular force. This fall, a new animated preschool series based in his world will make its debut. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Batwheels is actually the second project in the DC Universe to target preschoolers. (The first one was the 2005 show Krypto the Superdog!).

This very young take on everything Batman focuses on several young, powered up vehicles who work along with Batman, Robin and Batgirl to defend the one and only Gotham City. They’re fighting evil and also working out their conflicts and challenges as they go.
