An all-new, hour-long animated special inspired by the go-get-’em gals of DC Comics is heading to Boomerang on Saturday, March 19 at 10 a.m. with Super Hero High. The special is the latest star of the DC Super Hero Girls entertainment universe, created by Warner Bros. Consumer Products, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Mattel. Additionally, exclusive DC Super Hero Girls shorts are now available on the Cartoon Network video app.
In the new special, Super Hero High is buzzing with excitement over a new student, Supergirl. But when Supergirl crash lands into the cafeteria, it’s clear that although she has incredible power, she has a long way to go before becoming a Super Hero. Too intimidated by the other supers to ask them assistance, Supergirl turns to helpful I.T. girl, Barbara Gordon, who introduces her to the sweet, old librarian, Granny Goodness. As Barbara helps Supergirl learn to harness her powers, Wonder Woman joins them as a mentor and friend. Meanwhile, the Junior Detective Club (The Flash, Bumblebee and Hawkgirl) investigates a mysterious rash of security breaches centered around the teleportation “Boom Tubes.” Could it all be because of reformed Super-Villain and Super Hero High Vice-Principal Gorilla Grodd – or something far worse?
Super Hero High stars Anais Fairweather as the voice of Supergirl, Mae Margaret Whitman as Barbara Gordon, and features the voices of Greg Cipes, Tara Strong, Ashley Eckstein, John DiMaggio, Tom Kenny, Helen Slater and Dean Cain. Jennifer Coyle (Bob’s Burgers) is the producer and director, with Sam Register as executive producer. The special is written by Shea Fontana, who also writes the Super Hero Girls animated shorts and graphic novel.
