DHX will also be distributing new seasons of Bob the Builder, Messy Goes to Okido and Fireman Sam.

The catalogue highlights two all-new shows set to drop this year: Mega Man and Polly Pocket. We’ve already covered both shows, but here’s a refresher:

The new Mega Man animated series will feature exciting new technologies and robots, as well as the introduction of Mega Man’s alter-ego, Aki Light. Aki is a normal, upbeat, schoolboy robot who has nano-core technology that allows him to transform into the mega powered super hero Mega Man! With his Mega Buster arm cannon and iconic helmet, Mega Man defends Silicon City from all threats. Beloved characters, such as Mega Man’s robotic dog, Rush, will return – while new characters, like Mega Mini and Suna Light, will make their debut!

The new spin on Capcom’s classic platforming franchise will air on Cartoon Network in the United States and Family CHRGD in Canada. Jakks Pacific has signed on to produce toys based on the show. The first season will consist of 26 twenty-two minutes or 52 eleven-minutes. The CG-animated show is a joint production between DHX Studios Vancouver, Dentsu Entertainment and Man of Action.

When 11 year-old Polly Pocket shrinks to four inches tall, she discovers a world of unlimited adventures where the smallest person can make the biggest difference! Tiny is mighty! There’s no dream too big, no adventure too small for Polly Pocket!

The relaunch of the beloved girl’s minaturized toyline is a joint production between DHX Studios Vancouver and Mattel Creations. While a distribution platform has yet to be announced, the 2D-animated show’s first season will encompass 26 twenty-two minute episodes, plus a 44-minute TV special called “Polly Pocket: Tiny Power.”

DHX has alot in store for audiences this year. What are you looking forward to? Leave a comment down below!
