    Samurai Jack Back From The Past in New Comic Series

    In 2004, the beloved Cartoon Network series Samurai Jack was abruptly cancelled. The time traveling hero was never able to return to his own era and square down with nemesis Aku, leaving the series sadly unresolved. But his saga is finally set to continue in a comic series published by IDW that gives us the fifth season we always wanted.

    Create Your Own Adventures in New Adventure Time Browser Game

    Ever wanted to play your very own BMO? Well too bad, but this new flash game on Cartoon Network's official website is the closest thing we're gonna get right now. It allows you to create your own little Adventure Time games that wouldn't be out of place next to Guardians of Sunshine and Bug Battle. Yes, you too can now make your own adventure for Finn and Jake to have. Don't worry, it's nothing like that one episode where they shipped the tiny versions of themselves.

    Oh My Glob, You Guys: Cartoon Network Announces New Adventure Time Game

    The Nintendo DS and 3DS game from WayForwardAdventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!!, was a bit slapdash, but overall entirely adorable. Short, sure, but fun. Cartoon Network and D3Publisher apparently heard the call for a longer, more expansive game, because it's been announced that WayForward is now developing Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW! for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and once again the Nintendo 3DS. Yeah, that's a thing that's happening.

    Watch the Banned Dexter’s Laboratory Episode “Rude Removal”

    For years there have been rumors of an episode of Dexter's Laboratory that went unaired because it didn't pass muster with Cartoon Network's Standards and Practices department. Back in December, Adult Swim launched the #telljeff hashtag on Twitter to get a Cartoon Network executive we assume is named Jeff to get off his duff and release the episode. It looks like Jeff came through, because now the episode titled "Rude Removal" is online for us all to nostalgically enjoy.

    Newsreaders Premieres Tonight, But You Can Watch It Right Now

    Tonight Adult Swim will be premiering their new show Newsreaders. It claims to be an "absurd take on the television news magazine format, a show that goes behind the stories that nobody else thinks are stories -- because they're not." It's a spin-off of their hit show Children's Hospital which occasionally features the Newsreaders team. I took a look at the premiere episode and it's so funny it made me wish all news shows were fictional.

    Adult Swim and Cartoon Network Shows Are Finally Coming to Netflix This Spring

    Without a DVR, pretty much all the programs we enjoy watching on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim fall well out of our regular schedule. Seriously, it's either they're on too early or too late, resulting in the desperate -- and oftentimes fruitless -- act of scouring YouTube in the vain hope that some copyright-infringing good Samaritan has uploaded the particular episode you missed. Thankfully, those days of watching grainy footage of Adventure Time someone filmed from their couch will soon be over since it's been announced that a library of shows from Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and Warner Bros. Animation will be available for streaming on Netflix come March 30th!

    Star Wars: Detours Full of Nerd Jokes, Weirdly Dwarfed Characters

    There is a new thing happening with Star Wars, and it looks...kind of good for a change? Seth Green's newest enterprise with Cartoon Network is Star Wars: Detours -- a look at what all the universe's most beloved characters are up to when they are not freezing one another in carbonite and force choking one another. As it turns out, their lives outside of those antics are pretty humorous and sort of adorable. We've seen this sort of thing before in Green's Robot Chicken take on the Star Wars U, but Robot Chicken this ain't -- Detours will be a primetime, family friendly show. Which we're willing to give a shot, because hey, what else are we going to do with our lives? Today especially, the tease makes a good counterpoint to the recent Star Wars 1313 trailer, which looks to be grittier than a Rancor's digestive tract. We assume that to be a pretty tract.

    Punch Time Explosion: Smash Bros. but With Cartoon Network Characters

    Punch Time Explosion, a game coming out for the Nintendo 3DS, is a Super Smash Bros. style brawler, except it features prominent Cartoon Network characters. No, sadly, not ones from Adult Swim. This isn't the first time Cartoon Network has made a mashup game featuring various characters from their universe (see: FusionFall), but Punch Time Explosion is most likely more accessible, considering it'll be on a Nintendo handheld and the Smash Bros. gameplay is designed to be simple.

    At the moment, the only trailers available are a few character profiles, one of which can be seen above, mainly because Bubbles is adorable. Other fighters featured in the game include characters from The Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, Chowder, Ben 10, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, and The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. There are also supposedly assist characters in the game, and the full fighters list doesn't seemed sussed out, so no reason to worry that your favorite (or more obvious) character hasn't made the roster as of yet.

    Here's hoping that Punch Time Explosion receives a WCW vs. NWO style sequel where the Adult Swim characters invade and fight the Cartoon Network guys.

    MAD Premieres on Cartoon Network This Monday, Yeah That MAD

    This Monday Cartoon Network will debut a new fifteen minute show featuring such segments as CSiCarly, 2010 Dalmations, Batman Family Feud, and, yes, Spy vs. Spy. Though the use of the MAD Magazine satiric philosophy and name for a cartoon show seems like it should have happened a while ago, but apparently the license was tied up in MADtv. However, the live action show aired its last episode in 2009, and so it is obviously time for a new television interpretation of the historic humor publication. From the LA Times interview with the show's producers, who between the two of them had hands in Robot Chicken, Crank Yankers, and our personal nostalgia trigger, KaBlam!:
    Kevin Shinick: It’s one of the last things you see on Cartoon Network before it goes to Adult Swim, so there isn't a day that goes by that I don't push the envelope and try and get away with something that could easily be done on Adult Swim, but because it's Cartoon Network, every day we have our battles, and we win a lot of them. It really does get you in the mood. You will notice a shift from watching Cartoon Network, and then you get "MAD," and then you g o into Adult Swim. It's going to be a nice transition.

    The Looney Toons Reboot Is Gonna Be Stupid

    Cartoon Network is taking a very bold move with its reboot of the Looney Toons franchise: Instead of a professionally made series, the show will actually be the class project for James Cameron Middle School's 3-D animation after-school class. Wait? What's that? I'm being informed that there is no such school (thank God) and that this series actually is being produced by professional animators with supposedly unclouded judgment. Well then how the flip did this happen:

    Weird Al to Do “Thing” for Cartoon Network

    Disney and Final Fantasy. The Muppets and YouTube. Peanut butter and chocolate. All pairings of distinct concepts that, when they come together, add up to unexpectedly more than the sum of their parts. It is in this spirit that we present this information: Cartoon Network and Weird Al have signed a production deal.
