Cartoon Network to Air NINJAGO: Masters of Spinjitzu, 4/16
The powerhouse series NinjaGo: Masters of Spinjitzu continues on Cartoon Network with two special episodes on Wednesday April 16 beginning at 6:30 p.m. (ET/PT). During the special episodes airing throughout 2014, the Ninjas will be pushed to their limits as they face new technological threats and gain new allies in this state-of-the-art and futuristic New World. Endowed with four mysterious Techno-Blades, the Ninjas will once again be forced to protect young Lloyd as they discover his Golden Powers only make the Nindroids stronger.
In "Black Out," the power is out in all of Ninjago, but the hard drive containing the Digital Overlord has disappeared. Some mysterious Stranger has stolen it and is now sending alternatively powered Nindroids to attack the Ninja and Capture Lloyd. "The Curse of the Golden Master" picks-up with the Stranger and the hard drive still missing.
