Mixels is a 2014 American short form comedy animated television series currently airing on Cartoon Network. The series first aired on February 11, 2014 with Teen Titans Go!. The Lego Group and Cartoon Network Studios produced the series together with the help of world class animators, voice actors, and toy designers.[2] The series revolves around the Mixels, small creatures that can mix and combine with one another in creative and unpredictable storylines. Although previous Lego series, such as Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu and Legends of Chima, use CGI animation, Mixels makes use of Toon Boom Harmony software.

A mobile app was released for the series on March 4, 2014, named Calling All Mixels, and even earlier a website was launched where everyone can learn about the Mixels. Three series of collectible Lego building toys will release, based on the characters.

Overview[edit]

Mixels involves many different, fun-loving tribes - each tribe having a different color scheme - who inhabit a fantasy land of adventure and wonder. They can mix (combining two Mixels), max (combining all three Mixels of the same tribe), and murp (when a mix goes horribly wrong) in all kinds of situations, using the mysterious cubits. All that stands in their way are the small, evil Nixels. In the Mixel world, a lot of things are a combination of two other things, including coconapples (which are a combination of coconuts and apples), cookironis (which are a combination of cookies and macaroni), and balóñatas (which are a combination of balloons and piñatas).

Characters[edit]

Mixels[edit]

Characters that are leaders are highlighted italic, and the non-leaders stay normal.

Infernites[edit]

A tribe based on fire. When all 3 combine, they become a bipedal dragon-like creature with fire breath. Their cubits are red.

  • Flain − (Voiced by Tom Kenny) Flain is the adventurous leader and known as “the smart one” of the group. But beware, if Flain thinks too hard that massive brain of his will soon catch fire!
  • Vulk − (Voiced by J.G. Quintel) One-Eyed Vulk is the strong but dim-witted member of the Infernite tribe. The scorching-hot hands of Vulk can melt escape routes through solid rock and fend off Nixels.
  • Zorch − (Voiced by Josh Keaton) The fiery jets from this cheeky Mixel’s backside leave Nixels standing in a cloud of smoke! He is also a skilled prankster.

Cragsters[edit]

A tribe based on rock. When all 3 combine, they become a giant humanoid rock golem that can turn into a boulder that can roll at enemies. Their cubits are grey.

  • Krader − Super-Strong Krader is the tough, short-fused, no-nonsense leader of the Cragsters. With his attitude, he makes sure no one dares mess with him. Krader is also one tough Mixel who can bulldoze through rock and dig deep pits to trap Nixels.
  • Seismo − (Voiced by Tom Kenny) Seismo is a quiet and shy Cragster with huge feet that can cause an earthquake or an avalanche to bury Nixels in them.
  • Shuff − Shuff is super helpful, super friendly, and super super clumsy. This Mixel likes to help but usually ends up accidentally smashing everything.

Electroids[edit]

A tribe based on electricity. When all 3 combine, they become a bipedal lion-like creature who can shoot electricity from his tail. Their cubits are yellow.

  • Teslo − (Voiced by Tom Kenny) Teslo is the lookout for the yellow tribe of Electroids. He has an electrically charged tail but is afraid of heights!
  • Zaptor − (Voiced by Doug Erholtz) Zaptor is the super-charged adrenaline junkie of the Electroids. He is capable of releasing massive blasts of energy and blinding light. He is best friends with Vulk. He loves Hamlogna sandwiches.
  • Volectro − Volectro is a scatter-brained Electroid who has constantly been made to emit loads of static energy by one too many electric shocks, which draws all kinds of weird things into that mega hairdo of his!

Frosticons[edit]

A tribe based on ice. They live in the icy popsicle lands in frozen volcanoes. Their cubits are dark blue. When all three combine, they become a blue dinosaur-like creature with claws of ice.

  • Flurr − Flurr is the leader and only tribe member who never seems sleepy and this curious creature likes to fly around and explore the Frosticons lands. Flurr is great at spotting invading Nixels far away but sometimes misses the most obvious things!
  • Slumbo − It takes an earthquake to wake this guy up, believe it or not. But when Slumbo is awake, this lazy Frosticon has the muscle to move giant objects and make obstacles for Nixels. But beware, Slumbo can get a brain freeze from making ice tunnels. He falls asleep at the most inopportune times, like mid-way through lunch or while falling off the side of a cliff.
  • Lunk − Lunk may not be the brainiest, or most graceful when waddling across ice balancing on his stubby hands, but that thick ice exoskeleton makes this Mixel incredibly durable. And one sneeze from Lunk can instantly freeze a Nixel in an ice cube! Lunk likes playing slingshot with Balk and somehow seems to be best friends with him. He is also best friends with Tentro.

Fang Gang[edit]

A tribe based on teeth, who live on farms with totems and make food for their appetites. When they all combine together, they form a brown bear-like creature. Their cubits are brown.

  • Jawg − Fiercely loyal, Jawg will use his indestructible teeth to protect and lead his tribe members to victory.
  • Gobba − Gobba's whip-like tongue has a super sense of taste that is amazingly accurate.
  • Chomly − A lethargic trash compactor, Chomly will eat just about anything that's not nailed down.

Flexers[edit]

A tribe based on flexibility. They live in the Sproingylands, using their stretchtastic talents to fight Nixels. When all three combine, they become a hermit crab-like creature. Their cubits are orange.

  • Kraw − Kraw loves to stretch his intellect in a battle of wits, but he also just loves to stretch and bounce.
  • Tentro − Although Tentro suffers from a lack of confidence, his tentacles make him powerful and versatile.
  • Balk − Balk uses his head as a rubber mallet, but he may have knocked a few screws loose.

Glorp Corp[edit]

A tribe based on goo or snot. They all live in a castle in the deepest part of a deep swamp. Their cubits are green.

  • Glomp - Glomp is the leader of a green, gooey tribe of thrill-seekers known as the Glorp Corp. The crazier the better for one-eyed Glomp who is always hatching hair-brained schemes and playing goofy games. And don’t get too close – He always has slimy hands and a runny nose!
  • Glurt - This slimy hound-like creature is the most excitable member of the swamp-dwelling Glorp Corp tribe. Glurt has a pointy tail, yapping mouth, and slobbers with delight when he sees anyone. An avid garbage collector, he gobbles up all the trash and cleans up after the rest of the Glorp Corp.
  • Torts - Torts has bulky feet and is the slowest moving of the Glorp Corp tribe from the swamps. A slob who enjoys playing for thrills, Torts shoots gloopy, green slime from his hands. Everything sticks to this turtle-like creature-which is great fun when goofing around and perfect for catching a Nixel or two!

Spikels[edit]

A tribe based on spikes. The three are defensive and spin rapidly. Their cubits are light tan. When all three join forces,they form into a dinosaur-like creature.

  • Footi - The one with spiny legs and gargantuan feet. He's pretty much not the brightest, but he's super powerful.
  • Hoogi - Has huge hands for crashing and smashing stuff. He may be clumsy and slow, but he's witty and curious.
  • Scorpi - (Voiced by Tara Strong) The leader of the playful Spikels tribe, Scorpi loves pillow fights, sleepovers and chatting all night. Always viewing life with a sense of wonder, this bug-eyed creature scuttles around on his centipede-like legs seeking fun. The cutest-looking of the Spikels loves to hug and snuggle, but beware of that dangerous pointy tail!

Wiztastics[edit]

A tribe based on magic. All three can turn invisible and have different patterns on their bodies. Their cubits are purple.

  • Mesmo - Mesmo has a moon pattern and shoots lightning bolts from his eyes. He's always ready to steal the show.
  • Magnifo - As the leader, Magnifo has a star pattern and shoots star boomerangs from his hands.
  • Wizwuz - Wizwuz has a star and moon pattern and shoots grenades by spinning his tail. The faithful magician's assistant to Magnifo.

Nixels[edit]

Nixels are creatures who are enemies of the Mixels, and like to destroy any combinations that the Mixels create. This is because they consider themselves far superior to the Mixels, but are only able to say, Nixels, Nix, Mixels, blow raspberries, whistle, laugh, sputter, yell, inhale, exhale, and scream. Their white faces can pop out of their bodies and walk around (with no arms).

  • Major Nixel − Major Nixel is the leader of the Nixels. Unlike the other Nixels, he is capable of speech. He treats the other Nixels like a tornado treats cars, throwing and kicking them to steal cubits.
