Mixels is a 2014 comedy animated television series that aired on Cartoon Network, co-produced by The Lego Group and Cartoon Network Studios. The series first aired on February 12, 2014 with a new episode of Teen Titans Go!. The series revolves around the Mixels, small creatures that can mix and combine with one another in creative and unpredictable storylines. Although previous Lego series, such as Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu and Legends of Chima use CGI animation, Mixels made use of Toon Boom Harmony software, which is animated at Atomic Cartoons, Inc., before later being animated traditionally at Digital eMation, Inc., Big Star Entertainment, Inc., and Saerom Animation, Inc.
Why It Rocks
Good and Energetic animation.
Awesome character designs that greatly represent which Tribe they are in.
Funny and Likeable characters like Flain, Seismo, Gobba, Kraw, Footi, Magnifo, Nurp-Naut, Globert, Krog and Vaka-Waka.
Great and unique art style complete with highlights and shading on the character designs.
The mixes and maxes are really cool and creative.
The Murps were hilarious.
It had good specials, such as Epic Comedy Adventure, Murp Romp, Mixel Moon Madness and The Quest For The Lost Mixamajig.
LEGO supplied great toys for the series where you can Combine your LEGO sets and post them on the now closed Mixels Gallery.
The hand drawn animation in 2015 and 2016 was terrible with a lot of errors.
The show went downhill in 2016, resulting in its cancellation due to its lack of popularity.
It's difficult to tell how likable the characters are, because various episodes keep switching the main protagonist. Even then, many of the episodes lack ways of continuity, resulting in a lack of character development and some characters having no personality at all.
