Malls, fists, and super powers — what more could you want?

The world of Lakewood Plaza Turbo isn't exactly a new one. In 2013, Cartoon Network released a pilot for this potential animated series, but we haven't seen anything regarding the show since then.

The eight-minute pilot is also jam-packed with references to anime shows like Dragon Ball Z and popular fighting games, which isn't a bad combination.

Oh, and it's set in a mall for superheroes. Also K.O. gets to learn new fighting techniques from his mom to unlock some nifty special attacks.

Think of the huge fanbases for shows like Steven Universe and Adventure Time, whose popularity on TV inspired their franchises to expand outside of the small screen to mobile.
