Black Jesus creator Aaron McGruder is best known for offending the masses with his comic strip/cartoon The Boondocks, and while Black Jesus is a similarly raucous and oddly surreal take on black culture, itís on a completely different comedic cloud. And yes, itís a weed cloud.
Oh my glob, great news: Cartoon Network is renewing five of its animated series. On Friday, the network announced at San Diego Comic-Con that Adventure Time, Regular Show, Uncle Grandpa, Steven Universe and newcomer Clarence have all gotten additional episode orders.
According to Deadline, the termination was officially confirmed by a Cartoon Network executive. Rumors of Page's alleged behavior first made waves a few days ago on Twitter, when a seemingly random warning was sent out.
Cartoon Network is set to unleash a whole hell of a lot of girl power on the world when the mega-popular animated series The Powerpuff Girls hits the airwaves again in 2016. I bet Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup look like they havenít aged a day.
Adventure Time is gearing up for its fifth season finale next week, and we now have a look at a very intense moment for Jake that involves a voice appearance by Andy Samberg. Who's the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star playing in the Cartoon Network animated series? A rapping bear of course!
When it comes to the holiday spirit, itís all well and good until itís not, meaning: sometimes you need a break from your family! Or in the very least, some sort of inanimate object you can all gather Ďround and stare at in silence while the heady goodness that is a Christmas morning food coma sets in. And while the Yule Log is all well and good for some, it is but one option in a sea of many, and doesn't necessarily work for everyone. But fear not, for the answer to your "what to watch on Christmas Day" quandary is here!
The Adventure Time panel opened with a sweet Lego version of the titles before creator Pendleton Ward came on stage to introduce the cast in attendance including Jeremy Shada, John DiMaggio, Tom Kenny and Olivia Olson as well as some behind the scenes talent like Kent Osborne, Rebecca Sugar and Adam Muto. And a special guest!
The panel began with an amazing, action packed Regular Show sizzle reel before writer Matt Price came out to host and introduce the rest of the panel. On the dais were Emmy nominated storyboard artists Toby Jones and Calvin Wong as well as resident song writer and supervising director Sean Szeles. Oh, and of course there's the cast, Sam Martin, Bill Salyers and creator JG Quintel.
Hey, remember earlier when we mentioned that Adult Swim's Comic Con announcement hopefully meant Cartoon Network's own plans for SDCC would be revealed soon? Well, we were right! And to give you a clue as to what CN has in store for fans attending the San Diego-set convention next month, we advise you to "c'mon and grab your friend," as Adventure Time will be one of the panels featured...
This summer should be a good one for Cartoon Network fans. The network known for some animated greats is bringing a few of those greats to Blu-ray and DVD this summer. On June 4, the Cartoon Network Enterprises is releasing Adventure Time: The Complete Second Season on to Blu-ray and DVD. Just a few weeks later, the company will release Regular Show: The Complete First and Second Seasons on to Blu-ray and DVD.
With news of the recent acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney, Star Wars fans have been left to speculate over the fate of the franchise and how it will affect its various offshoots. We know that there's a new trilogy coming. That in itself is big news, but what about the fate of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, George Lucas' 3D CGI animated series on Cartoon Network?
I know hardcore fans of Adventure Time praise the show for this sort of goofiness and bold anti-storytelling. Hereís an ugly truth, though. This show isnít so much bold and new as it is a throwback to those good olí days of animation you hear old people talk about sometimes (you know, when we bother to listen to them). Adventure Time is a direct descendant of Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, the Pink Panther, and Heckle & Jeckle.
Preview Night at Comic Con in San Diego is underway and the floor is open! I did a walk through this evening to get a look at some of the excellent displays, including AMC's The Walking Dead photo set-up, which allows fans to pose as one of Michonne's "pet" walkers, and a pretty impressive set-up for Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Check out some of the photos ahead.
"It's Adventure Time! C'mon grab your friends. We'll go to very distant landsÖ" Those Adventure Time fans who are grabbing their friends and heading off to Comic Con in San Diego (next week!) may want to get involved in Cartoon Network's first-ever Adventure Time Comic-Con Quest. Get a map. Visit the booths. Get a prize. Sounds like an adventure fit for Finn the Human and Jake the Dog!
Just yesterday, while babysitting my nephews, I had my first experience with Adventure Time, a show they give the same kind of blank-faced focus I once exercised in my own youth, during Saturday mornings when TV became a virtual buffet of animated content (this was before Netflix and whole channels dedicated to cartoons, kids). My sister tells me her husband is also a fan of this animated series, which follows a boy and his best friend Jake (a dog with special powers) and their adventures in the post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo.
