8:00am – Monday, February 20 on ABC2
Mike the Knight is a new 52-part CG-animated action-packed series following young Mike, an energetic, cheeky yet bountiful knight-intraining who is driven by his passion to help others, and along the way, be the best knight he can be. Through comedy and adventure, and with his rallying cry ‘be a knight, do it right’, Mike learns the power of responsibility and how to do things the right way.
With a little help from his Big Book for little Knights in training, the would-be-hero rises to each episode’s mission with the help of his closest friends Sparkie and Squirt, a pair of friendly, quirky dragons, and his trusty steed Galahad. Never far from the action and always willing to help out is Mike’s fun and free-spirited sister Evie, a wizard in training.
Topping and tailing each episode is Fernando, the resident bard, who acts as the storyteller. Incredibly funny, his witty stories begin and end each episode on a humorous note.
