2:50pm – Tuesday, October 16 on ABC2
Mike the Knight, the hit 52-part CG-animated series, now delights preschoolers in the afternoons with the series being repeated daily at 2.50pm.
The action-packed series follows young Mike, an energetic, cheeky yet bountiful knight-in-training 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 responsibility of power 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.
Episode one: Mike the Knight and the Smiley Treasure Mike the Knight is teaching Squirt and Sparky how to be good guards when Mike’s sister Evie shows them a present their father, the King, has sent them. They’re not really sure what the present is but decide that since it is yellow and in a smiley shape, it must be yellow smiley treasures! And there are six of them – three for Mike and three for Evie.
As they are treasures, Mike the Knight decides that he must guard them all by himself and sets off to find the best hiding spot. This doesn’t go down well with Evie who wants her share of the treasure.
