Western Animation: Mike The Knight
Mike the Knight is a children's CGI series airing on Nick Jr beginning in 2011.

Mike is a young knight who happily lives in a castle. He looks up to his father who is a knight. His job is to protect the queen. In each episode, he messes up on a mission after seeing how upset everyone is. Mike does his mission right and everyone is happy. In each episode, Mike learns his lesson.

This show provides examples of:

  • An Aesop: Each episode includes a moral. Even the viewer is reminded of the moral at the end of the episode when a Robin Hood-like minstrel comes and plays a small song on his guitar and sings.
  • Bowdlerise: Evie despite being a witch is never labeled as such, but instead the confusing title of "Wizard" this is obviously to avoid paranoia that preschoolers would see a witch as a role-model. Despite many kids cartoons and fairy tales have "Good Witches"
  • Catch Phrase: "It's time to be a knight, and do it right!"
  • Cowardly Sidekick: Squirt.
  • Cool Horse: Galahad
  • Disappeared Dad: Mike's father is mentioned as existing and being part of his life, but he's always off questing duing the episodes.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Sometimes there are episodes where a character gets more focus than Mike. When this happens, the character says "It's time for me to do it right!"
    • Evie in "Evie's New Friend".
    • Trollee in "Trollee the Aprentice" and "Knignt for a Day"
    • Fernando in "Brave Song"
  • Everything's Precious with Puppies: Yip and Yap
  • Functional Magic: Evie, being a witch-in-training her spells don't go right.
  • Greed: The Vikings.
  • Inept Mage: Evie, being a witch-in-training her spells don't go right.
  • International Coproduction: The show is a British/Canadian work.
  • Team Chef: Sparkie.
  • Transformation Sequence: The contraption that puts Mike in his armour.
  • Women Are Wiser: Queen Martha
