Mixels is an American-Danish animated comedy television series that aired on Cartoon Network, co-produced by The Lego Group and Cartoon Network Studios. The series first aired on February 12, 2014, with a new episode of Teen Titans Go!. The series revolves around the Mixels, small creatures that can mix and combine with one another in creative and unpredictable storylines. Although previous Lego series, such as Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu and Legends of Chima use CGI animation, Mixels made use of Toon Boom Harmony software, which is animated at Atomic Cartoons, Inc., before later being animated traditionally at Digital eMation, Inc., Big Star Entertainment, Inc., and Saerom Animation, Inc..
A mobile app was released for the series on March 4, 2014, named Calling All Mixels, and even earlier two websites, one on the LEGO website and another owned by Cartoon Network, were launched where fans can learn about the Mixels. Nine series of collectible Lego building toys were released, based on the characters. On February 19, 2014, the series began airing as an interstitial program on Boomerang, and still currently airs as such.
The TV series wrapped up production in July 2016, and the series finale aired on October 1, 2016, marking the end of the franchise, bar references in Uncle Grandpa and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.
Mixels involves many different, fun-loving tribes—each tribe having a different color scheme—who inhabit a fantasy land of adventure and wonder. They can Mix (combining two Mixels), Max (combining all three Mixels of the same tribe), and Murp (when Mixels think of a mix that ends up going horribly wrong) in all kinds of situations, using the mysterious Cubits. All that stands in their way are the small, evil, discolored Nixels led by the tall King Nixel.

Lego Mixels is a Lego theme based on a variety of tribes living in a fantastical diverse world and are small creatures that can mix and combine with one another to create new characters. The theme was first introduced in 2014. It was eventually discontinued by the end of 2016.
The Lego Group handles all toy merchandise for the Mixels franchise, and Cartoon Network handles all non-toy merchandising. The Lego Mixels buildable collectible figurines went on sale on March 1, 2014, for a retail price of $5 each. Each character has their own set, and nine were released as part of series one. For each tribe, one of the three sets will contain a Nixel. Series 2 was released at the end of May, and Series 3 was released at the end of August. Series 4 was released on February 1, 2015.
Lego designer Gemma Anderson explained the importance of the Max figure in designing each tribe’s individual figures and stating, "During the sketching phase, I would consider what the tribe theme is and then work out what the max could be, at the same time wondering how I can use certain parts from the Max in the 3 small Mixels. It’s often a case of going back and forth between the 3 models and the Max." Anderson also highlighted the importance in the characters’ faces in capturing a unique personality and explained, "The eyes and mouths are a huge part of the personality of the Mixel, changing the eyebrows for example can drastically change the expressions from sad to happy, or even angry! We would often brainstorm on the names of the character; some of them might be inside jokes with the team. One example is ‘Tuth’ in Series 8, it was a joke in the team that me being from Wales, I pronounce some words a little differently, such as ‘tooth’ sounding more like ‘tuth’. We decided during the naming process we would try to name that one Mixel how I pronounce it (And we succeeded!)."
According to Bricklink, The Lego Group released 90 playsets as part of the Lego Mixels theme. The product line was eventually discontinued by the end of 2016.
