Created at Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank, California, 'Ben 10', to be aired every Wednesday to Friday at 1800 hrs on Cartoon Network, follows the exciting adventures of 10-year-old Ben, who discovers a strange alien device resembling a wristwatch called the Omnitrix inside a crashed meteorite.
Once the watch permanently locks itself on his wrist, Ben discovers that he can transform into ten different fantastic alien beings, each with unique powers and abilities but only for 10 minutes at a time and all the while retaining his 10-year-old mind and personality. As Ben learns to control these new powers, he decides to use them to fight evils. Once in a while, however, he can't resist being a kid and uses his new abilities to satisfy his curiosity.
Fortunately, his grandfather Max and cousin Gwen are there to keep him in check and bail him out of trouble when he needs it.
