OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes follows K.O., a cheerfully eager young boy who wants nothing more than to become the world’s greatest hero while following in his mother’s footsteps. Set in a futuristic world full of robots and aliens, K.O. works at Gar’s Bodega, a hero supply store located in Lakewood Plaza, alongside his friends Radicles and Enid. Whether he’s mopping the floor with evil robots or literally mopping the floor, K.O. is set to take on the world while proving every success or failure to be just another stepping stone to becoming the ultimate hero.
What We Thought:
I had never heard of OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes: T.K.O. and after watching it, I definitely think it’s geared towards kids, but you just know it has a huge adult following for some reason (and probably shouldn’t). It reminded me of Steven Universe a lot which I know has an adult following (and probably shouldn’t).
The show follows K.O. a young boy who wants nothing more than to be a hero. He gets a job working with two smaller heroes who he befriends. It has elements of Pokemon, Steven Universe and other similar shows. It’s an easy watch especially for kids, I just don’t see myself going out of my way to watch it again. But I’m a grown man so I shouldn’t be watching it in the first place.
OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes’ series premiere was Cartoon Network’s highest-rated 2017 telecast for a Cartoon Network original series among kids 6-11 and I understand why. It’s colorful, fun, fast paced and has all kinds of adventures. Episodes are short to fit the small attention spans of today’s world.
OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes: T.K.O. is the new generation of cartoons that takes what’s trendy, makes it fast and colorful with ridiculous storylines that kids (and adults) seem to eat up. Cartoon Network is the master of these shows and I totally understand why the show works and is a hit. Even though it’s not for me, I can see today’s kids watching it over and over again and I’m cool with that.
