Unikitty! (stylized as UniKitty!) is a Danish-American animated, comedy-based television series on Cartoon Network. It is a spinoff on the 2014 film The Lego Movie.

Plot

Unikitty is the ruler of the kingdom, and her days are busy with royal responsibilities. While she is very interested in making sure her people are happy, Unikitty is not one to be crossed. She has made it her life's mission to rid the kingdom of negativity. Unikitty is a kitty and unicorn hybrid who is full of endless enthusiasm and full of creativity. She is known to get angry whenever someone makes her little brother and best friend, Puppycorn, upset. Also living in the castle with Unikitty is Dr. Fox, who is a scientist, Hawkodile, who is a trustworthy bodyguard, and a 1x3 grey Lego brick named Richard. Unikitty and her friends must prevent Master Frown from taking over the castle and spreading sadness and negativity.

Why It's Positive

  1. The characters, especially for Unikitty, are very cute and likable, such as the title character, Puppycorn, Dr. Fox, Hawkodile and Richard.
  2. The voice acting, especially for Grey Griffin (Daphne Blake (Scooby Doo), Lola, Lana and Lily (The Loud House), Vicky the Babysitter and Tootie (The Fairly Oddparents), Sam Manson (Danny Phantom), Mandy (Billy and Mandy), Emily Elizabeth ( Clifford The Big Red Dog and Diana/Wonder Woman from DC Super Hero Girls)) Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates, Velma Dinkley, Sadie Miller from Steven Universe, and Webby Vanderquack from the 2017 Ducktales reboot), Roger Craig Smith (Sonic The Hedgehog and Thomas from Regular Show), etc. is actually good.
  3. Catchy, bubbly and energetically hardcore theme song by Babymetal (a Japanese band that fuses heavy metal and J-pop to make a new genre, called "kawaii metal").
    • The musical numbers in the show are also nice to listen to, mostly in most songs have a fusion of Rock, Techno and J-Pop.
  4. It's very adventurous in terms of storylines.
  5. Very cute, creative, gorgeous and fluid animation that was well made in 2017 standards.
  6. The character designs are really cute, imaginative, cool and creative to look at.
  7. The visuals and background art are really well done.
  8. Cute and vibrant color scheme that it makes it a combination between the pastel and neon colors.
  9. Lots of funny moments and good jokes with better humor and better comedy.
  10. Very well-done story episode plots.
    • Speaking of episodes, they have tons of good episodes like:
      • "Spoooky Game" (which started the series on a good note)
      • "Sparkle Matter Matters"
      • "Time Capsule"
      • "Hide N'Seek"
      • "Music Videos"
      • "Rag Tag"
      • "Fire and Nice"
      • "Pet Pet"
      • "Beach Daze" (excluding the somewhat bad ending)
      • "Kaiju Kitty"
      • "Dunklecorn"
      • "Too Many Unikitties"
      • "Hawkodile Sensei"
      • "Perfect Moment"
      • "No Day Like Snow Day"
      • "Action Forest"
      • "Landlord Lord"
      • "Lab Cat"
      • "No Sleep Sleepover"
      • "Wishing Well"
      • "Cheerleading" (excluding the twerking scene)
      • "BatKitty"
      • "Kitty and Hawk"
      • "Dance Danger"
      • "Rainbow Race"
      • "Baby Caterpillar"
      • "Top of The Naughty List" (Christmas episode)
      • "Big Pup, Little Problem"
      • "Pool Duel"
      • "Safety First"
      • "Late Night Talky Time"
      • "Little Prince Puppycorn"
      • "Birthday Blowout"
      • "Welcome To The Unikingdom"
      • "Castles & Kitties"
      • "Film Fest" (depending on your view)
      • "The Very Best Candy"
      • "Tragic Magic"
      • "Unikitty and the Ice Pop Factory"
      • "Kickflip McPuppycorn"
      • "Scary Tales" (and its sequel, Scary Tales 2; (Halloween special))
      • "The Birthdays To End All Birthdays" (an awesome way to end the series)
  11. Besides the show itself, the toy-line the LEGO group made is pretty unique as we get a new mold for the Unikitty toy which is more playable than the original Unikitty toy from the 2014 LEGO movie.
  12. Batman, one of the characters from The Lego Movie made a guest appearance in "BatKitty" (as mentioned above).
  13. It teaches good morals in various episodes.
    • One example is "Too Many Unikitties", where it teaches people to "be yourself".
  14. As stated above, the series finale, "The Birthday To End All Birthdays", was an awesome way to end both the show and Warner Bros. run of The Lego Movie franchise on a high note, since Warner Bros. ended off their movie deal with Lego, with Universal Pictures being the current distributor of the franchise, following the box office disappointments of both The Lego Ninjago Movie and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, which resulted in UniKitty! to end after its third season.
  15. Veridis Quo.
  16. The show has a lot of cute and heartwarming moments in most of its episodes.
  17. Unikitty's emotions are still cute and cool like her Anger (despite that being loudly annoying or too extreme sometimes), and Queasiness as well as her new emotions like Sadness and even her Rainbow form!
  18. The relationship between Hawkodile and Dr. Fox is somewhat adorable.

Bad Qualities

  1. The characters can get a bit annoying at times in each episode.
  2. It had some bad episodes like "License To Punch", "Trapped in Paradise", "Old Lady Bodyguard", "Election Day", and "R and Arr", but not enough to be the SpongeBob SquarePants of Cartoon Network.
  3. While the voice acting is good, Tara Strong is kinda miscast as UniKitty, due to sounding nothing like the character.
  4. Hawkodile, while he’s still likable, looks like a rejected Transformers character.
  5. There are some unlikable characters like Master Frown, FeeBee and Eagleator.
    • Master Frown, despite being a main villain who had his decent introduction in "No Day Like Snow Day", can act cruel and mean-spirited at all times, which can intentionally anger the viewers for his actions. Thankfully, karma has returned to him as when his plans fail everytime at the near end of some episodes, and even his redemption in "The Birthday To End All Birthdays" 2-part finale.
    • Eagleator was somewhat an unnecessary addition in "Action Forest", despite his cruel actions like taking Hawkodile's shades for his betrayal in the flashback. Thankfully, he was removed in some episodes and taken a few appearances like in "The New Nemesis", which his behavior would slightly improve when he begins to fight Flamurtle together with his former friend.
    • FeeBee is incredibly selfish and refuses to sell her flowers to people, which is hypocritical and greedy.
  6. Despite what WIP#13 says, the episode "Super Amazing Raft Adventure" has a terrible moral called "play before you work".
  7. Very bad continuity.
  8. The ending of "Grown Up Stuff" has one scene where Hawkodile was twerking. And that highly inappropriate scene ended up having the episode get banned.
  9. The dreadfully-hated Teen Titans Go! appears in the show as a cameo in "Best Best Friends".
  10. In the final 8 or 9 episodes, Cartoon Network easily stopped caring about the series and they started to burn off new episodes at 5:00 AM in the morning in the east coast (where kids would wake up at 4:30 AM while their parents are still asleep wasting their own time for the countdown to watch the final episodes of this show hours before school starts) and at 8:00 AM in the west, which is the time where there were kids in the USA waking up early to get ready for the first day of school, and then parents were forcing their children to miss the last 9 episodes of the show airing that morning, so that their kids don't want to be late for school. Luckily, they all can be watched on Hulu as of May 2021 since the last episodes aired only one time on TV.
  11. Some gross-out humor was noticeable, such as the vomiting parts in a picnic scene of "The Big Trip" and the disgusting, gross-out ending in "Camp Unikitty".
  12. Unikitty's rage mode can get annoying, loud, or too intense for younger viewers sometimes.

Trivia

  • Before this series was made, Alison Brie stated that she won't be voicing Unikitty in this series because she only voices her in The Lego Movie and its sequel, so Tara Strong had to be Unikitty's new voice actress for the show.
  • The show is censored in the United Kingdom because of UniKitty's rage mode.
  • Grey DeLisle Griffin, the actress who played Puppycorn, spoke up with 20th Century Fox, stating that she is going to replace Russi Taylor with her to voice Martin, Sherri, and Terri on The Simpsons starting with Season 31 due to Russi Taylor's death back in July 2019.
  • Puppycorn makes a cameo appearance in one scene of The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.
  • While another episode was in development, Tara Strong broke her foot back in May 2018.
  • Kate Micucci and Grey Griffin, two of the voice actors from the show as well do voice work on modern Scooby-Doo projects respectively as Kate's role includes Velma Dinkley since 2015 after Mindy Cohn stopped voicing the character and retired from the role and Grey's role includes Daphne Blake since the 2000s and beyond to this day on.
  • The episode "Sick Day" was banned worldwide (except for Canada) due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The Japanese Dub of the show itself even had a voice actor of Terunosuke Miyamoto (the minor villain from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable) portraying Master Frown.
  • Tara Strong and Grey DeLisle Griffin (The voices of Unikitty and Puppycorn) are friends in real life when voicing characters in other cartoons.
  • This show was originally going to be rated TV-PG just like The Lego Movie was, but instead the show was actually rated TV-Y7-FV.
