A new animated series premiering on Kids' WB! (via The WB Television Network) Saturday, November 1 at 9:30 a.m. ET / 8:30 a.m. PT.
Xiaolin Showdown is based on the ancient mythical Xiaolin martial arts inspired by Chinese monks thousands of years ago. The keys to controlling the powers of good and evil are held within an assortment of sacred objects, called the Shen Gong Wu. These objects, each with unique supernatural powers, can only be captured after an extreme martial art-inspired "Double Dare" showdown occurs. From San Francisco to Paris, from Japan to Rio, from Monte Carlo to New York, there's a Xiaolin Showdown going down.
Omi, a naive young monk, gifted in the ancient discipline of Xiaolin martial arts, leads a team of warriors-in-training for the powers of good - J-pop hipster girl Kimiko; flashy street smart Brazilian Raimundo; and Texas Kung Fu cowboy Clay. With their cantankerous dragon guide, this fearless foursome traverses the globe in search of the mysterious Shen Gung Wu.
On the other side of the ying/yang wheel, evil has a junior champion of its own - evil boy genius Jack Spicer. Mentored by the ancient witch Wuya and accompanied by his custom-built robot army, Jack teams up with outlandish supervillains to possess the powerful Shen Gong Wu for his own wicked plans.
It is a tight race as both sides know that the one who gathers all of the Shen Gong Wu will become an unstoppable force for good or evil! Aided by the mystical powers of the Shen Gong Wu, each showdown culminates in a fantasy universe showcasing gravity-defying, extreme martial arts skills. Calling all crouching tigers and hidden dragons...let's go Xiaolin Showdown!
