Disney XD shifts into high gear this month with the premiere of two sizzling specials from Team Hot Wheels. New to the network from Mattel, the action-packed adventures follow a crew of skilled racers who work together to protect their quiet town from evil villains who roll in unexpectedly. Not your average CARtoon, Team Hot Wheels, brings Hot Wheels™ “Go For It” attitude to life through a cast of fun-loving daredevil kids who are always up for racing adventures.
Leading the double bill of specials on Saturday, May 16 at 6:30 p.m. ET is Team Hot Wheels: Origin of Awesome. When a mysterious black car begins transforming the sleepy town of Hilly Woodlands into a wild mess of orange track and outrageous obstacles, four kids are tasked to stop it before the whole world is overrun with chaos. With the help of an eccentric gearhead scientist named Larry, these lifelong racing fanatics get the keys to the fastest, coolest cars of all time. Now Gage, Rhett, Wyatt and Brandon must learn to work together in order to out-race
the mystery car and ultimately become Team Hot Wheels.
Then, on Saturday, May 30 at 6:30 p.m. ET in Team Hot Wheels: Skills to Thrill, when a suspicious character comes to town selling new driverless cars, the citizens of Hilly Woodlands are thrilled. A car that takes you to work and makes you waffles – what could be better? But the town soon learns that giving up the wheel means giving up your freedom, and it’s up to Team Hot Wheels to come to the rescue.
