Australia's Secret Heroes - OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes - Netflix

OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes (also known simply as OK K.O.!) is an American action comedy animated series created by Ian Jones-Quartey (known for his work on Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, and Nockforce) for Cartoon Network. The show is based on his pilot short Lakewood Plaza Turbo, which was released as part of Cartoon Network's 2013 Summer Shorts project. It is produced by Cartoon Network Studios. The web series premiered on Cartoon Network's YouTube channel and on Cartoon Network Video on February 4, 2016. On March 9, 2017, nearly four years after the original short's premiere, Cartoon Network announced that the television series had been greenlit. The opening sequence was storyboarded by Japanese artist Hiroyuki Imaishi, co-founder of Studio Trigger. On December 4, 2017, the series was confirmed to be renewed for a second season, which premiered on May 5, 2018.

To promote OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, Cartoon Network's Chief Content Officer Rob Sorcher hinted many times in an interview that it would become a full series. Its multiple storyboard artists have also been seen on Twitter. On March 9, on PlayStation's Blog, Chris Waldron VP of Games & Digital Products for Cartoon Network announced a series in the works, along with a video game. The series was premiered by Cartoon Network on August 1, 2017. The first 6 episodes were released online on June 13, 2017. The show is animated traditionally in South Korea by Digital eMation and SMIP Co., LTD. Unlike many animated programs, which are inked on paper and then scanned for coloring, OK K.O.! is drawn in pencil. The animators pencil each frame on paper using a light table, and then color them digitally on a layer beneath the transparent line work, to retain a hand-drawn quality. For Quartey, it was important for the audience to “never forget that these are drawings.” This was partially inspired by the first season of The Simpsons, which had a loose, rough quality to its animation. In addition, the show's design sense is inspired by Yoshi's Island.
