OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes is a superhero comedy animated series created by Ian Jones-Quartey for Cartoon Network. It is based off the original pilot "Lakewood Plaza Turbo", originally released May 21, 2013 for Cartoon Network's 2013 Summer Shorts project.

Production

The series was originally believed to be a failed pilot due to its lack of information over the past three years since the pilot's debut, aside from some slight hints and sketches of the cartoon. However, recently, the voice actress of KO, Stephanie Nadolny, confirmed that the series is in production; with her having already recorded his voice for five episodes thus far.

On February 4, 2016, a mobile game for Android and iOS was created and the web series had premiered on Cartoon Network's YouTube channel[1] and the CN App.[2]

In 2017, nearly 4 years after the original pilot was released, the show was greenlit[3] and first aired on August 1, 2017.[4]
