Nick Airs Avatar Mini-Marathon

If you’re not all caught up on Nickelodeon’s anime-inspired action/fantasy cartoon series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, you can catch four back-to-back episodes tonight, April 22, beginning at 7 p.m.

Avatar: The Last Airbender centers on Aang, a fun-loving 12-year-old who must forego a normal life in order to master his latent powers over the four elements. In the debut episode, Aang the Avatar is discovered in a cavernous iceberg, where he had been trapped for 100 years. Once freed, he befriends his emancipators, Katara and Sokka, and struggles to evade the capture of Prince Zuko, a teenage Firebender who has attacked the Water Tribe in search of him.

Tonight’s episode lineup features the installments "The King of Omashu," "Imprisoned," "Winter Solstice Part 1: The Spirit World" and "Winter Solstice Part 2: Avatar Roku."

The series is created and exec. produced by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, who previously worked together on the Fox primetime animated series Mission Hill and King of the Hill.
