Marvel Entertainment will be releasing a new multi-media project aimed at pre-schoolers.
That was the same title used for Frost Fight, which felt a little like a lost Super Hero Squad story; and these designs definitely feel like Super Hero Squad. The set-up seems more like Marvel Team Up than Ultimate Spider-Man ended up being.

Kind of satisfying to see Miles and Gwen there even though I'm not the target demographic.
Very happy to see Ms. Marvel getting more airplay.
It obviously looks very movie/cartoon-focused in terms of the heroes they're using, so I wouldn't expect any X-Men or Fantastic Four to appear. I wonder if any kids actually know about the X-Men or FF anymore ?
I do wonder if we're going to see any non-movie heroes, or heroes who aren't currently in the cartoons, show up here. I also think it's interesting that we don't see any Guardians in the promo art or description .
I wonder if all of the current cartoon VA's will reprise their roles in this ?
I love the art style. It will certainly be the most appealing Marvel show to look at.
I always thought Super Hero Squad was super fun, so hopefully this can be a good successor to it
So this is one of those projects like TransformersRescueBots and MickeyAndTheRoadsterRacers, where the primary audience is much younger children, but there's an intent to please the older audience. Well, I like the two aforementioned shows, so this should be fun.
I doubt an older audience factors much into it at all but I do hope they put together something entertaining for the tiny Marvel fans. I wonder where they will air or stream. Disney XD doesn't do preschool while Disney Channel and Disney Junior do but it's also possible that they would just go online.

Assuming the promo art is indicative of what the actual animation will look like .
The episodes are 3-minute long so I wouldn't be surprised if this is online or on Youtube, though I guess they could air them during commercials or at the end of cartoons on XD...
In this interview, Cort Lane talks a little about the Marvel Super Hero Adventures line towards the end, though it's nothing really new.
I'd say they've been doing a lot of short-form stuff in the past year, since everyone of the current cartoons has gotten a series of shorts preluding to their current season, on-top of the Funko shorts, Rocket and Groot, and Ant-Man .
It would be great if the shorts were similar in quality to the shorts that aren't attached to any tv series but part of me doesn't expect them to be. I still think that each project they take on is a chance to improve what they're doing so I'll remain curious to see how this turns out.

I hope they at least outsource the animation .
I hope Baron Zemo appears.
Marvel Tweeted a first look at the animated shorts:
According to TV Insider, the shorts premiere tomorrow:
I guess these are going to be the cutaway gags in Ultimate Spider-Man made into an animated series, in the sense that they will be told from the minds of the characters.
That does not sound like Robbie Daymond, Mick Wingert, or Jim Meskimen as Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Ultron respectively. I guess we'll be dealing with an entirely new voice cast for this .
The shorts having a normal animated Spider-Man seguing into a story with the more kiddy and deformed animation is...an interesting framing device .
I know this is meant for Kids, but Ultron trying to drive humans out by stealing a garbage truck is just so silly .
I may not know who's Iron Man or Spidey, but to hazard a guess for Ultron, I'd say that's Fred Tatasciore reprising from that one AA episode.
1. It could be possible that it's the same actors, but with a different performance. I mean, take Jeff Bergman's Looney Tunes characters. Bugs and Daffy sound different in the early 1990s than they do today. Of course, that's due to time. Or how about Kevin Conroy and his Batman voice?
2. It's either that, or they did use different actors. It reminds me of when the Disney Junior Palace Pets app was made into Whisker Haven Tales With The Palace Pets short series. The former used veteran voice actors and anime actors like Stephanie Sheh, Cristina Vee, Tara Strong, and Erin Fitzgerald, while the actual show recasts everyone with child actors like Fiona Bishop and Henry Kauffman.
