Hero:108 follows the outrageous adventures of a group of brave young defenders determined to end a conflict between animals and humans in The Hidden Kingdom. Check out Kidzworld's first review of this cool new cartoon on Teletoon!


The Story

Long ago in The Hidden Kingdom, animals and humans lived together in peace … until the evil HighRoller convinced the animals that humans were their enemies. HighRoller and his animal troops have driven the humans from their homes and it is now up to Big Green and their elite force - a band of young heroes known as First Squadron - to bring peace back to The Hidden Kingdom.



First Squadron, consisting of Lin Chung (a.k.a. Panther Eye), Mighty Ray, Mystic Sonia and Jumpy Ghostface will have to face off against a variety of fierce creatures, such as fire breathing Ligers and magic lantern wielding Zebras, if they are going to win back the kingdom.


Series Premiere: Rabbit Castle

You could say Hero:108 starts off with a “hop, skip and a jump” in its series premiere: Rabbit Castle! Without giving away too much of the story (you’ll have to watch it yourself!), a battle is being waged deep in the Hidden Kingdom, and rabbits who jump rope (that’s right, they skip rope!) and are armed with Carrot Grenades battle against the First Squad. Basically, the show managed to blend the perfect mix of comedy and action – cartoon-style.

    I like The Legend Of Korra slightly better because that show took risks that were hardly taken in a show of its kind. It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth.
