Friends from the sixth grade, they find themselves caught up in the adventure of their lives when Enigma calls on them to travel to Kaboom City, a fantastic world where everyday objects have become superheroes and supervillains rivals: The Hero Orange VS the Villain Juicer, the Hero Drums VS the Villain Guitar and so many more will be shown in humorous, action-filled adventures as they all try to control the Kazoom Power.
"Superthings" Rivals of Kaboom – Kazoom Power revolves around three main themes that contribute to the growth and development of the youngest viewers: the power of imagination, the importance of team work in the success of all heroes and healthy rivalry as a source of motivation to bring out the best in oneself. The three kids from the sixth grade Kai, Finn and Mia find themselves caught up in the adventure of their lives when, after getting into big trouble in science class, they decide to travel with Enigma, a walking, talking top hat – to Kaboom City, a fantastic world where everyday objects have become superheroes and supervillains rivals: The Hero Orange VS the Villain Juicer, the Hero Drums VS the Villain Guitar and so many more.
The Kazoom Kids are the only ones who can help Enigma stop the evil plan of the powerful villains Mr. King and Professor K, who are trying to take over the whole of Kaboom City. Excited by the thrilling challenge Enigma gives them, the three friends join the side of the superheroes, who are badly in need of backup, and embark on a series of missions in order to find the six pieces of pure Kazoom before Mr. King and his henchmen use them to take over Kaboom City. Kid Kazoom, Kid Fury and Multy will take on these challenges with bravery, enthusiasm and joy, but their friendship will soon be called into question when they find themselves on opposing sides.
