Australia will finally get a chance to watch Po and his ragtag group of kung-fu animals during their original broadcast dates as Nickelodeon Australia opens its Kick Butt Week with the premiere of the Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness CG animated series. Co-produced by Dreamworks Animation SKG and Nickelodeon, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness is based on the Kung Fu Panda Movie and features all the memorable characters (albeit only Viper and Mr. Ping will have their original voice actors, namely Lucy Liu and James Hong). The new episodes will start airing on Monday, February 20 at 4:30PM onwards.
Nickelodeon Australia’s Kick Butt Week programming event will run from December 5 to 12, 4:30PM to 7PM. And will also feature brand-spanking new (at least, new to Australian channels) episodes of The Penguins of Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, and The Troop. Supah Ninjas and T.U.F.F. Puppy episodes are also included in the event.
