This weekend, Never Wrong Toys’ Laser Pegs will sponsor a special sneak peek event for the long-awaited debut of Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten, the new animated series from Genius Brands International. The series, voice-directed by John Landis and co-executive produced by and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger will officially debut on Genius Brands’ Kartoon Channel! app this spring.

Beginning Friday, Jan. 29 at 12 p.m. ET, Schwarzenegger himself will introduce the sneak peek on the Kartoon Channel! app as Laser Pegs will offer viewers a chance to win prize packs filled with their popular STEM building sets.

“I am excited to work with Genius Brands to share a first look at Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten, my first ever animated children’s series coming this spring to the Kartoon Channel!,” says Arnold Schwarzenegger. “I am especially proud and honored to bring Stan Lee’s vision and one of his last creations to life in this masterful production, sharing positive nuggets of value such as health and fitness tips, inclusivity, diversity, anti-bullying and more.”

Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten follows six extraordinary students whose superpowers come from common kindergarten items like white glue, putty, building blocks, and farts. Schwarzenegger voices their teacher, Arnold Armstrong aka Captain Fantastic.
