The series was originally set to air on Nickelodeon in 2010, but was pushed back to 2011. A total of 52 episodes have been produced or ordered. Two special previews were aired on September 19 and October 21. It later premiered on November 7, 2011 during a SpongeBob Runaway Roadtrip week.

Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness tells the continuing adventures of Po as he trains, protects, fights, teaches, learns, stumbles, talks too much, and geeks out as the newest hero in the Valley of Peace. Now living in the barracks with the Furious Five, Po will have to take on his many new responsibilities, his many new adversaries, and his many old pounds in the continuing adventures of the Dragon Warrior.

Cast and characters

The only actors to reprise their roles from the first two Kung Fu Panda movies are James Hong, who voices Mr. Ping and Lucy Liu who voices Master Viper. However, 5 of the voice actors from the video games will reprise their roles: Mick Wingert, who voiced Master Po, James Sie, who voiced Monkey, Max Koch, who voiced Mantis, Fred Tatasciore, who voiced Master Shifu.


Nickelodeon has stated that they had "big plans for the [show]", giving the series an additional 26 episodes, bringing the total to 52.[2]

There's also a soundtrack in development for the series. The score is done by the Track Team,[3] who are known for composing the score for Avatar: The Last Airbender. In addition, Sifu Kisu is the martial arts consultant for the show, as he was on the Avatar: The Last Airbender series.[4]


The show will also be taking part in Nickelodeon's revamp to their cartoon season on television. As an early promotion, Master Po was featured in a Nickelodeon bumper with all the characters of the shows set to premiere or were renewed in 2011.[5] On July 23, an exclusive sneak peek of the show was shown at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con International, with producers and members of the voice cast present at the panel.[6] A sneak peek episode was also included on the DVD / Blu-ray disc release for Kung Fu Panda 2.[7]
