Twelve Forever is a 2015 cartoon pilot created by Julia Vickerman. It aired on Cartoon Network on May 18th, 2015.
Reggie is an enthusiastic young girl who doesn't want to grow up, to the point where she has created Party Island, a fantastic world where she never has to. With the help of her magic key, she and her friend Shane visit as much as they like. But not everyone in this world is benevolent - the Butt Witch loves nothing more than causing trouble for Reggie and Shane.

A full series was greenlit for Netflix on December 1st, 2017, slated to premiere in 2019.
Twelve Forever contains examples of:
- Fountain of Youth: The Butt Witch uses a potion that will turn whoever drinks it into a baby. It's used on her at the end.
- Gender Bender: Reggie briefly turns Shane into a giant mother in order to turn a babyfied Tristan back to normal.
- Shout-Out: Reggie recites words while the key that is in her necklace spins and activates its powers, much like another well known Magical Girl did in the 90s, Cardcaptor Sakura
- Vocal Dissonance: The Butt Witch is female, but has a clearly masculine voice.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Shane doesn't seem to mind Reggie using her powers to turn him into a surfboard and a giant mother.
