Adult Swim: Now With 20% More FOX Cartoons!

Recommended Posts

@Matt K . . . I found it funny. Maybe not a spiritual successor to Children's Hospital, but not a waste of time. The other show was basically a Tim/Eric thing, in the sense that stuff was flung on the walls, and the flingers hoped enough would stick.

I meant to post: Harvey Birdman: Attroney at Law is now in the 1 a.m. slot, followed by ATHF. At 4 a.m., they're running Apollo Gauntlet. Check it Out! remains at 4:15.

If you never saw "Very Personal Injury" before, it's a trip. "Pure electricity. In my pants."

Beforen I forget completely, AS will be running Black Dynamite in the 4 a.m. slot, starting tonight with “Beat It! or Jackson 5 Across Yo’ Eyes.”

So Adult Swim has given up the 8pm slot again.  Now Amazing World of Gumball is on from 8-9.  The show is pretty good so it could be worse (it could be Teen Titans Go or Cleveland Show/Family Guy).

I don't know if the captions can be turned off. Bigger picture: Harvey's back, and a lot of his friends are coming out of retirement!

Apparently Dream Corp LLC has started back up again on Sundays at midnight (so technically Monday).  This season will be 14 episodes and they're showing two episodes at a time (this week will be episodes 5 & 6).  Also, it's been renewed for a third season as well.  I was wondering why the show was getting some promotion as part of the Adult Swim Festival since at the time I had no idea we were getting another season.  It is odd that there's been little promotion for the show though.

Looking forward to it.  Was a huge fan of the show during its initial run. 

 

Did anyone see Joe Pera?  I caught a few mins since my newborn was being fussy and I found it pretty boring.

Is it wrong to have a crush on Joe Pera?  I was up late and a little slap happy, but I found something really cute and endearing about it.

For anyone who doesn’t dig surreal and doesn’t think much of Dream Corp LLC and/or The Shivering Truth . . . this probably won’t make you terribly ecstatic.

Reminder: nothing new tonight, unless you count the Tigtone pilot. Next week, the series starts with the first two episodes. Reruns of The Shivering Truth will air to fill the void left by The Venture Bros.; the finale of the latest season of that repeats tonight.

Also, there looks to be two blocks on Sunday nights: Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law at 8:30, Mike Tyson Mysteries at 9. They started tonight at the very beginning.

BTW, did anyone else see Harvey Birdman: Attorney General? I don't think I asked that.

Tigtone makes me happy. I used to spend fair amount of playing fantasy adventure games, and the show satirizes the cliches perfectly. And his dialog is brilliantly stupid. "Now give me another quest bartender. Or better yet, another quest!"

Who would win in a fight - Chubby Webbers or Scooby Doo? My money's on Chubby.

Prepared to be disturbed. Again. Some more.

With some added emphasis, that would sound exactly like Tigtone. "Prepare to be disturbed! Again! SOME MORE!"

And speaking of the questing adventurer who ventures on quests, here's a Tigtone topic.

Heads up: Korgoth of Barberia airs at 4 a.m. tonight; Welcome to Eltingville gets shown tomorrow at that time. Just wanted any fans of Evan Dorkin who never saw that pilot to know.

I tried watching Tropical Cop Tales last week. I will not make that mistake again. Only way I can think to improve it is to have a drinking game centered on the word "tropical." Then you'd black out halfway through a 15-minute episode.

I finally have electricity again, so I can respond to this:

You're braver than I am. I'd probably start out the drinking game by using the bottle to break the TV.

“He’s a wolf! With a laser on his back!!” Meh, I’ve heard worse.

They’ll probably air the episodes two at a time. Is that an issue for any of you?

Wondering why Lazor Wulf doesn’t premiere this Sunday . . . then I remembered Monday is April Fools Day. Hard to top last year, where Toonami gave us undubbed anime all night.

All right, it's the night where Adult Swim does their April Fools thing, and I'm watching something that's (apparently) titled Gemmu Settu Machu Pichu. Think of a cross between Prefect Hair Forever and Xavier Renegade Angel, with bonus trivia facts thrown in from time to time, and you'll get the general idea. Amazingly stupid in kind of a clever way.

Anyway, it's about a guy who's challenging various Inca and Aztec gods to tennis matches while being pursued by Interpol. To the extent that it's actually about anything, that is.

ETA: The correct spelling of the show's name is Gemusetto Machu Picchu. It consisted of 6 episodes, at one hour each. Talk about a merciless April Fools gag.

I only recorded the first 90 minutes on DVR. How long did it last? I look up Adult Swim's site, and it suggested that GMP was over four hours long.

ETA: Just realized that 8 p.m.-midnight was also April Fools Day. [as] didn't do anything beyond GMP, right?

Kept forgetting to mention: Gemusetto Machu Picchu will be run in half-hour increments starting tonight at 1 a.m.

ETA: Oh, and this is coming back . . .

I really do love Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell.  I'm a little surprised (in a good way) that we got more after season 1.  A funny thing about the show is how similar it is to The Good Place's depiction of hell.

Curious if anyone else has been watching Gemusetto Machu Picchu. It's been growing on me, and I think it's a good spoof of anime without being a jerk about it.

Also growing on me: Lazor Wulf.

Heads up:  the second season of Final Space starts tonight at 11:30 p.m. Hot Streets takes over the midnight-12:30 slot, starting with the first season.

The day before yesterday I saw a flatbed semi driving north on I-5 with a giant fiberglass or plastic Rick head & torso on the flatbed. I assume it was going to or from one of the AS party/festival/whatever things that they've been advertising. Is there one in Oregon or Washington about now? Anyway, kind of a surreal sight.

Was it the Rickmobile?

That's it. They were transporting it rather than driving it.

Imagine being stuck behind the Rickmobile in traffic. That cold, cynical stare.

The panel schedule for New York Comic Con is up. Adult Swim has two panels on Friday, October 4, at Hammerstein Ballroom, back-to-back.

Quote

It’s happening! Season 10 is upon us! To mark this historic occasion, Robot Chicken returns to NYCC ready to celebrate ten seasons of Emmy Award-winning stop-motion animated insanity! We’re talking teaser trailers, brand-new clips, and sneak peeks behind the scenes. Co-creators and executive producers Seth Green and Matthew Senreich are joined by actor/writer Breckin Meyer, actor/writer Milana Vayntrub , writer/director Tom Sheppard, and executive producer John Harvatine IV. Robot Chicken premieres September 29 th at midnight (ET/PT) on Adult Swim.

Quote

Emmy-winning creator, Genndy Tartakovsky (Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack), brings his newest and most daring work to NYCC. This half-hour new series follows a caveman at the dawn of evolution and a dinosaur on the brink of extinction. Bonded by tragedy, this unlikely friendship becomes the only hope of survival in a violent, primordial world. Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal roars to life in a 5-night special event, starting Monday, October 7th at midnight (ET/PT) on Adult Swim.

I'd like to see Robot Chicken, mostly because I always get to their panels when I have the chance. I'm not sure if I'd stick around for Primal. Great premise, wonderful creator track record, but I try to maximize my time at the convention center.
