Trivia

  • Team Aqua is the only Technic Heroes TV series from the MCA Era still in production, whilst Pupsquad and Dragons are the only shows from the Dark Era still in production and Maxigon: Aqua II is the only show from the Renaissance Era still in production. This makes them some of the longest-running TV shows in the franchise, not counting the hiatus Dragons went on from 2008-2013 (which was initially a cancellation, similar to the revival of LazyTown).
