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 (coconuts and apples), cookironis (cookies and macaroni), and ballooñatas (balloons and piñatas).

Characters[edit]

Mixels[edit]

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 − As the smart one of the bunch, he always tries to keep a level head, even if it is on fire.
  • Vulk − Dimwitted but lovable, he has superheated hands, so watch out for high fives!
  • Zorch − Fiery jets let this crazy prankster run around with surprising speed.

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 − He's a tough, no-nonsense guy with a giant hand that can dig through anything.
  • Seismo − Shy and nervous, he has huge feet that can cause earthquakes and break through rocks.
  • Shuff − Clumsy, timid and overly nice, he has a body like a living wrecking ball.

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 − Daring and ingenious, he can use his electrically charged tail to scale any surface.
  • Zaptor − A highly charged adrenaline junkie, his body is like a lightning rod, storing up blasts of energy.
  • Volectro − He's a scatter-brained jokester whose body constantly emits static energy.

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 − Naturally curious, he can take to the air to explore the Frosticon lands.
  • Slumbo − His strength is incredible, if you can keep him awake long enough to use it.
  • Lunk − Lunk does everything in slow motion, but despite this he is very friendly and has a tough ice exoskeleton.

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, he'll use his indestructible teeth to protect his friends.
  • Gobba − His whip-like tongue has a super sense of taste that is amazingly accurate.
  • Chomly − A lethargic trash compactor, he'll eat just about anything that's not nailed down.

Flexers[edit]

A tribe based on extra limbs. 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 − He loves to stretch his intellect in a battle of wits, but he also just loves to stretch and bounce.
  • Tentro − Although he suffers from a lack of confidence, his tentacles make him powerful and versatile.
  • Balk − He 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's got gooey hands, so avoid handshakes!
  • Glurt - Super speedy, Glurt is always ready for action.
  • Torts - The incredibly super strong member.

Spikels[edit]

A tribe based on spikes. The three are defensive and spin rapidly. Their cubits are light tan.

  • Footi - The one with spiny legs and gargantuan feet.
  • Hoogi - Has huge hands for crashing and smashing.
  • Scorpi - Has a spike-ended tail for defense.

Wiztastics[edit]

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

  • Mesmo - Has a star pattern and shoots lightning bolts from his eyes.
  • Magnifo - Has a moon pattern and shoots moon boomerangs from his hands.
  • Wizwuz - Has a star and moon pattern and shoots grenades by spinning his tail.

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.
