The production team behind a new cartoon series featuring a character based on Cork hero Adam King have shared a snippet of the show online. 

In the clip posted by Kavaleer Production Adam can be seen reacting in delight as he sees the animation for the first time.

Adam's father David pitched ‘Adam loves Adventure’ which is based on the seven year old and his love of space, to broadcasters at the Cartoon Forum in Toulouse along with the Irish creators Kavaleer.

The adventure show that is set in space and is aimed at preschool children follows Adam, Bubby, Speedy, and Zuzu on their quest to save planet Earth aboard the Shelby.

Adam voices the first ever wheelchair using character in an Irish children's programme, and the creative team hope the cartoon will inspire others, and show that "heroes come in many shapes and sizes".

Earlier this month it was announced that the Killeagh boy will be receiving a special Pride of Cork Award this year.

Kavaleer tweeted: “Following a pitch at #CartoonForum, Toulouse today, we are proud to unveil the first snippet from our upcoming show 'Adam Adventure!' based on and starring the voice of the inspirational @AdamKingIRL. (Enjoy Adam’s lovely reaction to watching this clip for the first time!!)”

Adam, who captured the hearts of the nation with his virtual hug after he appeared on the Late Late Show, saw cards with the design raising over €266,000 for Cork University Hospital Charity and Temple Street Children's University Hospital Health Foundation.
