Twelve Forever is an American animated web series created by Julia Vickerman, a former writer and storyboard artist known for her work on Clarence and The Powerpuff Girls. Twelve Forever premiered in the United States on Netflix on July 29, 2019.

The original pilot was produced for Cartoon Network, by Cartoon Network Studios, and was originally released on their website on May 18, 2015. In December 2017, it was announced that Netflix had acquired the rights to Twelve Forever for a full series, with production duties being handled by The Cartel and Puny Entertainment.[2][3] Twelve Forever was canceled after one season.[4]

Plot[edit]

The series centers on Reggie Abbott (Kelsy Abbott), an imaginative girl whose desire to remain forever young is so powerful she can enter another world in which she never has to grow up: an island called Endless where her toys are real. She is joined by her friends Todd (Antony Del Rio) and Esther Hopkins (Jaylen Barron), who visit this amazing world to live out their superhero fantasies and escape the responsibilities. Life and reality often catch up with them in Endless as the people start dealing with growing pains and conflicts develop between them. The negativity the friends experience while dealing with their new complicated problems feed their enemy, the nefarious Butt Witch (Matt Berry), who seeks to destroy Endless.
