The ‘Pawesome’ New ‘SuperKitties’ Animated Series Coming to Disney Channel

Disney Branded Television’s show about adorable superhero kittens who impart lessons of kindness, empathy, and friendship premieres Jan 11 on Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and Disney+.

Disney Branded Television’s SuperKitties, an adorable, action-packed animated series about Ginny, Sparks, Buddy and Bitsy ― four cute and cuddly kittens who are brave, smart, strong, and kind who with their talents combined, turn into SUPERKITTIES when trouble arises ― premieres January 11th, 2023, with a simulcast on Disney Channel and Disney Junior (10:30 a.m. EST). An initial batch of episodes will premiere the same day on on-demand platforms and Disney+. Defeating villains and imparting important messages of kindness, empathy, friendship, resilience and problem-solving, the fluffy felines are on a mission to make the world a more caring and "pawesome" place.

Set in the city of Kittydale, each SuperKitties episode features two 11-minute stories as the four kittens, cuddled up at the Purr 'N' Play playspace or out playing around town, receive a "SuperKitty Call" from one of their animal friends with a problem that only the SuperKitties can help with, usually caused by one of the comedic villains in the series: Cat Burglar, Mr. Puppypaws, Lab Rat, or Zsa-Zsa. With plenty of super skills and gadgets at their disposal, the SuperKitties set off to thwart the villains’ plans and impart important messages along the way.

The voice cast includes Emma Berman (Disney-Pixar's Luca) as Ginny; Cruz Flateau (CoComelon) as Sparks; JeCobi Swain (ABC's Home Economics) as Buddy; and Pyper Braun (Country Comfort) as Bitsy. Voicing the recurring comedic villains in the series are Justin Guarini (American Idol) as Cat Burglar; James Monroe Iglehart (Broadway's Aladdin) as Mr. Puppypaws; Ruth Pferdehirt (Finding Nemo: The Musical) as Lab Rat; and Isabella Crovetti (Vampirina) as Zsa-Zsa the cockatoo.

Walt Disney Records will release the digital soundtrack, "Disney Junior Music: SuperKitties," featuring the theme song plus additional songs from the series on January 11th.

Emmy Award winner Paula Rosenthal (Peter Rabbit) created and executive produced the series. Emmy Award-winning producer, director, and storyboard artist Kirk Van Wormer (Transformers: Prime) is co-executive producer. Keith Harrison Dworkin (UglyDolls) is the songwriter, and Vidjay Beerepoot (Minnie's Bow-Toons) is the composer. Carmen Carter (Dancing with the Stars) performs the series’ theme song. The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television – Kids (formerly known as Silvergate Media) in association with Disney Junior.
