Villainous is a Mexican cartoon created by Alan Ituriel that first aired 10 short episodes in 2017, primarily for the "Cartoon Network Everything" app.[1][2] It is based on his 2012 webseries and was picked up by Cartoon Network Mexico. The miniseries is co-produced by Cartoon Network and AI Animation Studios. Due to the success of the episodes released on YouTube, talks for a full series are underway, but for now, the miniseries will be promoted on the CN Anything App, CN's YouTube channel, and eventually television.

The Villainous concept was pitched by Alan Ituriel at a contest run at the Pixelatl Festival in Cuernavaca, called IdeaToon Summit, in 2014. He met some Cartoon Network executives there and the concept was judged to fit the 6-11 year old demographic for CN Anything original content. Villainous has garnered very positive reception on Cartoon Network's online platforms, leading CN to decide to continue their own "Pitch Me" competition through at least 2017 in an aim to find more web original shows. Villainous is the first of what CN hopes to be many successful short projects for their app and YouTube channel.
