Are you a fan of Lucas the Spider? We've watched his mini videos and LOVE him. When I learned that our favorite baby spider will have his own Cartoonito show launching on Cartoon Network, I had to share!

Lucas the Spider
Saturday/Sunday (6:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. ET/PT)

Lucas the Spider is a new CGI-animated show premiering Sept. 18 and is based on viral YouTube videos following the adventures of an endearing young spider, as he and his friends try to navigate the big world around them.

Along with Lucas the Spider, WarnerMedia Kids & Family will launch other Cartoonito preschool shows on Monday, Sept. 13 on HBO Max and Cartoon Network.

Cartoonito on Cartoon Network will be available Monday-Friday (6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET/PT) and will include new series Bing, Mush-Mush & The Mushables and Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go™. Preschoolers.


Produced by Acamar Films, in association with Brown Bag Films, Bing is a new show celebrating the joyful, messy reality of preschool life and finds the big stories in the little moments. Bing is a lovable, authentic preschooler, who lives very much in the present moment. Each moment brings new experiences for Bing, which often lead to a bump, spillage or temporary disappointment. By Bing’s side, through it all, is Flop, whose patience and encouragement help Bing, along with his audience, to experience and learn from life’s unpredictable moments.

Mush-Mush & The Mushables

Produced by France’s La Cabane and Belgium’s Thuristar in coproduction with CAKE, Mush-Mush & The Mushables is a new show that follows the endearing Mushable community as they embark on a journey to put the fun back into fun-gi! As pocket-size guardians of the forest, growing up isn't always easy, but together each day shines just as bright as the one before. The show is created by Elfriede de Rooster and directed by Joeri Christiaen.

Thomas & Friends All Engines Go

From Mattel Television, Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go invites preschoolers all aboard and follows the world’s Number One Tank Engine and his friends on their silliest and most musical adventures yet. Produced in vibrant, 2D-animation in partnership with Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana Studio, the new show features a core cast of five young engines – Thomas, his best friend Percy, rival Diesel, the adventurous world traveler Nia and an all-new electric high-speed rail train, Kana.

The weekday Cartoonito lineup on Cartoon Network will also include Baby Looney Tunes, Caillou and Pocoyo, with Care Bears: Unlock the Magic and Love Monster joining the weekend line-up.

All Cartoonito shows will have a curriculum designed by an early childhood education expert crafted to underscore one of four pillars of Humancentric Learning: Creativity, Caring, Curiosity and Courage.

Lucas the Spider explores his world to encourage curiosity, and other shows will help preschoolers model strengths to become the best version of themselves and interact well with others.

On HBO Max, Cartoonito programming will be presented as a dedicated page featuring a collection of new preschool shows including Little Ellen and the second season of the The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo, along with other staples, Esme & Roy, Sesame Street and more.

Cartoonito strives to be a space where little ones are free to be themselves, let their creativity flourish and become caring community members. This fresh take on preschool programming is guided by Cartoonito’s proprietary Humancentric Learning framework developed in partnership with Educational Psychologist Dr. Laura Brown which aims to help children develop their unique potential and encourage them to treat others with compassion, respect, and fairness.

Cartoonito also offers various resources to help parents and caregivers understand each show’s curriculum and extend the learning off screen. All shows will feature a visible learning badge­—a short phrase and an icon that describes what Humancentric Learning goals the show teaches.

The Cartoonito parent website will include additional information about the curriculum and supplemental learning activities children and adults can play together to reinforce the learning.
