Huntik: Secrets & Seekers, this weekend at 8am, only on NickToons!
NickToons UK's brand new animated action show "Huntik: Secrets & Seekers" is an action adventure comedy/drama about a group of Seekers traveling around the globe in search of ancient Amulets that can invoke different types of titans. Long before our times, humanity fought against an evil of unimaginable power. The darkness was broken only by the Seekers, humans able to invoke legendary creatures - the Titans - into their own plane of existence. With the Titans executing their every order, the first Seekers fought against the dark forces of the underworld and against themselves. Centuries went by, and one by one, the Titans were hidden: some were buried following grueling battles, others merely forgotten as time passed. The magical and powerful creatures lie hidden and dormant in the most remote parts of the universe, waiting to be awakened by a new and bold group of Seekers. After centuries, the Seekers divided themselves into chapters in order to find traces and clues of past and extinct populations in order to reveal the mystery of the Titans. The Huntik Foundation reaching for these answers will travel from the tip of the South American continent to Europe, from North America to African terrains. Only the most worthy of Seekers are able to invoke the Titans and benefit from their unbelievable powers.

"Huntik" is an Italian animated series created and directed by Iginio Straffi (creator of the "Winx Club"), and is a co-production between Big Bocca Productions, a company owned by Richard McWilliam, CEO and owner of Upper Deck and Rainbow S.p.A., and is one of the spin-offs to Nick's popular "Winx Club" series. All of the show's designs, animation and visual style were created in Italy, while the scriptwriting and original voice recording were done in the United States.

Season one of "Huntik: Secrets & Seekers" introduces viewers to Lok Lambert, a normal highschool boy who is thrown into a new life of Titans and battles when he discovers his father's amulet along with his journal; proof that he may still be alive.
