Mixels was a theme introduced in March 2014. A TV series aired from February 2014 to October 2016 on Cartoon Network to coincide with this theme.

Mixels had television shorts and specials that aired on Cartoon Network and on Cartoon Network's website, games, nine waves of collectible buildable figures and more.[1] There are two apps available on mobile platforms, called Calling All Mixels,[2] and Mixels Rush.

Details

Mixels are small creatures that can mix and combine with one another in creative and unpredictable story lines. Their opponents are called Nixels and they come in certain sets, having some designs. Each Mixel set features one buildable figure, while some of them come with Nixels in packaging.

Mixels packaging have a small transparent window to let the buyer take a sneak peek at the pieces included in the set.

Mixels are able to combine in one of two ways; one being combining with a random mixel from the series (such as 41502 Zorch with 41508 Volectro), or with all three from their respective tribe (such as Zorch with Flain and Vulk). They can mix, max, and murp. A mix is when two Mixels mix in a useful way. A max is when all three from a tribe from certain year (In this case Infernites 2014, or 2015) mix together. A murp is when two, three, four, or even more Mixels mix in a way that is not useful. The mixes are more common between two of a different tribe than two of a same Tribe

Mixels appear to live in Tribes. The first series includes three tribes: Infernites (Fire-based), Cragsters (stone and underground), and Electroids (electricity). The Second series also includes three tribes: the Frosticons (ice), Fang Gang (Wood and carving), and Flexers (Rubber). Series 3 has three more tribes: the Glorp Corp (slime), Spikels (spikes), and Wiztastics (magic) tribes. A fourth wave released in February 2015, with three more tribes: The Orbitons (space-themed), Glowkies (cave and night-themed) and another Infernites wave. A fifth wave was released in June 2015, with three more tribes: The Klinkers (steampunk-themed), Lixers (tongue-themed) and another Frosticons wave. A sixth wave was released in October 2015, with three more tribes: The Weldos (contruction-themed), Munchos (food-themed) and another Glorp Corp wave. The seventh wave introduced the city of Mixopolis as it's new location, along with the Mixies (music-themed), the MCPD (police-themed), and the Medivals (medieval-themed). The eighth wave added the MCFD (firefighter-themed), Pyrratz (pirate-themed), and Medix (medical-themed) tribes. The ninth wave introduced the Newzers (TV news-themed), the Trashoz (city sanitation-themed), and the Nindjas (ninja-themed), concluding the theme.

TV Shorts

Mixels had television programming that aired on Cartoon Network. Each episode lasts 30 seconds to six minutes. There are two seasons, with 25 aired episodes. [1]

The game named Calling All Mixels has been available on mobile platforms since March 1, 2014.[2]

Cartoon Network and The LEGO Group Reveal Groundbreaking IP Development with New Mixels Franchise

Multiple Mixels Elements Set to Launch in 2014

Cartoon Network and The LEGO Group announced today that they will jointly produce an unprecedented new global entertainment franchise. Launching in 2014, Mixels is the next franchise in integrated family entertainment from two of the world’s leading experts in youth engagement. The new venture will feature animated content (primarily shorts), a rich digital gaming experience, a collectible building toy concept and more.

Animated content will air on Cartoon Network and on www.cartoonnetwork.com, featuring the colorful Mixels creatures that can mix and combine with one another in creative and unpredictable storylines. A collectible portfolio of low-priced mini building sets will launch in three waves in 2014 and an app-powered gaming experience will engage fans in a deep mobile game that will cover the sprawling world of Mixels.

Mixels was developed through a true collaboration between Cartoon Network, a leading global kids entertainment company, and The LEGO Group, globally renowned for its heritage of quality, creative play experiences. The two companies joined forces when Cartoon Network Studios had an interest in creating original content based on the inherent open-ended values of LEGO® play, at the same time that The LEGO Group was exploring a new concept involving small creatures – and Mixels was born. The property was developed by a multinational team of content innovators, designers and animators – from Los Angeles to Atlanta to San Diego to Connecticut to Denmark.

“This is the next step in the evolution of Cartoon Network Studios and the way we develop original IP,” said Rob Sorcher, chief content officer, Cartoon Network. “Bringing together world-class animators and game developers with LEGO content and product design teams at the earliest stages of creation proved to be an energizing collaboration, showcasing the creative strengths of both brands.”

“Our relationship with Cartoon Network has really evolved and they have been really great, supportive partners who share our passion for children,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president licensing and entertainment for The LEGO Group. “After working closely with them for the last few years, it is obvious that they truly understand and fully embrace our brand and our core values, so we are thrilled to embark on this new journey to develop and deliver a highly creative and fully integrated new experience with them.”

“Families today are engaged in many ways and want a seamless entertainment experience,” said Stuart Snyder, president and chief operating officer for Turner’s Animation, Young Adults & Kids Media Division. “The reach of all the Cartoon Network platforms combined with the different touch points of the beloved LEGO brand will enable us to create a fully integrated and rich experience from the very beginning.”

Mixels will inspire new ways for young people to engage in immersive entertainment content that fuels sustainable, creative physical and virtual play. Fans and the audience will become creators and active participants in the process, creating new characters and content. This is a multi-format, multi-platform experience where a kid can join in anytime, anywhere.

With this exciting new franchise, Cartoon Network Studios will drive all narrative, animation and digital content and Cartoon Network Enterprises will handle Mixels non-toy licensed merchandise. The LEGO Group will focus on Mixels toy design, manufacture and distribution as well as licensed LEGO Mixels publishing to support the property.
