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, and those of us who especially love the Ice King - I maintain that he's really just lonely and misunderstood, despite being surrounded by adoring penguins - will likely appreciate the replica of the Ice King's castle, which will be set up at the Adventure Time-themed booth on the convention floor.
Last year, Adventure Time fans were sent on a Comic Con quest, which sent them around to various booths. This year, Cartoon Network says fans will again have the opportunity to collect exclusive Comic Con giveaways including five different Adventure Time buttons. It's opportunities like these that make it really tempting to abandon whatever insane schedule I have planned for SDCC and spend as much time on the floor collecting buttons and other loot. Alas, that's not an option for me, but it might be for you! I'll settle for enjoying Adventure Time on Netflix and hoping for the chance to check out the castle on the convention floor. Long live Ice King!
If you're a fan of The Regular Show and you're attending Comic Con, you might want to head across the street from the Convention Center to where the Cartoon Network has joined forces for a second year with the New Children's Museum of San Diego. They're offering a unique immersive experience, as they'll be transforming the museum into a Regular Show Regular Zone, which is described as a "sensory feast complete with nostalgic 80's arcade games, Regular Show inspired video games and groovy neon lighting.
As for the panels, Cartoon Network's panels kick off Thursday with MAD and Annoying Orange. On Friday, Adventure Time and Regular Show will get back-to-back panels over at the HIlton Bayfront. Other shows to be featured in panels are Uncle Grandpa, Steven Universe, Clarence, Beware the Batman, Teen Titans Go! and Ben 10: Omniverse. Check out the full schedule below.
