Finally, after all the waiting, Nickelodeon will premiere the brand new Kung Fu Panda series on Monday November 7th at 5:30pm. The CG DreamWorks Animation toon, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, follows Po, Viper, Mr. Ping and others from the Kung Fu Panda franchise in regular series-based adventures, where the Dragon Warrior teams with the Furious Five to defend the Valley of Peace from various threats. t’s like having a Po all of your own!! In the episode, Sticky Situation, Po accidentally destroys the training hall. Yeah, sounds about right! To make up for his mistake, he looks for the hall’s original builder, entirely unaware that the inventor is an old enemy of Shifu’s. It’s like we’ve never left you!!
The toon will kick off tonight on Nick, following a new episode of SpongeBob SquarePants at 5pm. However, keep in mind that this is JUST a preview, so don’t get too used to seeing Legends of Awesomeness on Monday nights. Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness will move to its regular time slot beginning Friday, December 2nd, at 8pm.
