Boxed Warriors

Boxed Warriors, a new animated series based on the collectible toy line from Headstart International Pty Ltd., is quickly gaining ground in Australia.

Following its debut on Cartoon Network Australia last month, the series quickly scored the top spot in the categories of kids ages 5 to 12 and boys ages 5 to 12. New episodes are airing on Saturdays at 11 a.m., with two oncores on Sundays at 1 p.m and 6:55 p.m. on Mondays.

The series and companion YouTube channel support the toy brand, which is currently available at retail in Australia and will launch globally in the months ahead.

Boxed Warriors features a collection of 13 warriors to collect and unbox, each with a unique set of strengths and weaknesses. They’re said to be the greatest warriors throughout space and time — plucked from their battlefields, miniaturized, and boxed! Now on Earth, they’re grumpy, they’re dysfunctional, and they’re ready to fight after they’ve been unboxed.
