Apollo Gauntlet
Season 1 Episode 1: “Origins”
Directed by Greg Franklin
Written by Myles Langlois
Created by Myles Langlois
Starring Myles Langlois, Tom Kenny, Betsy Sodaro, Mark Proksch, Kelsy Abbott, James Urbaniak
Adult Swim
Air Date: Monday, July 10th, 2017, 12:30am

Early in the AM hours, Apollo Gauntlet joined the parade of lunacy that is Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. Adult Swim started back in 2001 and quickly became a cult hit with its briskly paced, sarcastic, and crude series like Home Movies, Harvey Birdman, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Apollo Gauntlet, created by Myles Langlois, is a perfect fit for Adult Swim with its old fashioned style of animation and nearly unending stream of consciousness style puns, one-liners, and pop culture references.

TV Review: The Venture Bros. Season 6 ‘Hostile Makeover’

The Venture Bros. Season 6

The brothers are back! It’s scary to think that it’s been more than 2 years since the end of season five of The Venture Bros., but yes it’s been that long. Sure we did get one hour-long special about this time last year, but that’s hardly enough for fans of the show. Fortunately, The Venture Bros. season six starts on Adult Swim on Sunday, January 31st at midnight, which means 8 weeks of the best damn show on TV.

The season starts off where “All This and Gargantua-2” left off, with Doc Venture having inherited his brothers’ business and a sweet new pad in New York City. Now the whole family is getting used to life in a new city as well as dealing with being fabulously rich. Meanwhile, Dr. Mrs. The Monarch is trying to rebuild the Guild of Calamitous Intent. There’s been quite a change to the old status quo, which I’m not sure is good or bad for new viewers.

‘Rick and Morty’ Gets A Season 3 From Adult Swim

Rick and Morty

If you’re not already watching the hilarious animated series Rick and Morty, now is as good a time as any time to get in on the fun. You’ll regret it if you don’t. The second season just got started a few weeks back, but it’s already being reported that Adult Swim has given the greenlight to a season three.

The show is a brilliant mix of science fiction and raunchy humor, following a crude, drunken genius named Rick, his innocent grandson Morty, and the many crazy adventures they get into involving everything from time travel and parallel universes and inception(ing?) to alien babies, simulation obsessed alien scam artists, and theme parks inside the human body, just to name a few.

Samurai Jack #5 cover by Genndy TartakovskySamurai Jack #5
Written by Jim Zub
Art by Andy Suriano
Colors by Josh Burcham
Letters by Shawn Lee
Cover by Genndy Tartakovsky
IDW Publishing
Release Date: February 26, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Our favorite time-traveling Samurai is back in Samurai Jack #5 with the epic conclusion of the story arc, Threads of Time.

Samurai Jack was a groundbreaking cartoon on the Cartoon Network and continues its story in the comic book pages. The cartoon style artwork transitions well to the medium, so the look and feel of the TV show is well maintained. But as to the story…..?

[Spoiler Alert…]

Our hero fails miserably. Every step on his journey leading up to this confrontation ends in a single frame. Picture the Firelord Ozai (from The Last Airbender) kicking Ang around until reaches the Avatar state, but ending the story there.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Almost a year ago it was announced that the popular Cartoon Network animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars was being cancelled, and that a new animated series was being planned. The new series was later revealed as Star Wars Rebels, which will begin airing on Disney XD in the fall of this year (watch the teaser trailer here).

It seemed as if we had heard the last of The Clone Wars, but not so fast. Out of nowhere, it has been announced that a sixth and final season of the series is still on the way.

Must See: Full-Size ‘Star Wars’ X-Wing Made With Over 5 Million LEGOs

Full Size LEGO X-Wing #1

We’ve seen our share of scale models created by fans over the years, but never anything quite like this.

While not built by fans, this model of an X-Wing from the Star Wars universe built by LEGO is full-size—meaning yes, you can sit inside of it (and will have the opportunity to; more details later). Though sadly, it does not fly.

The model was made using an astonishing 5,335,200 LEGO bricks. At first glance at the above image it looks like it’s made using a few larger LEGOs and some other parts, but as you get a closer peek, you see just how insane the structure really is.

Check out more images of the full size LEGO X-Wing below now!

Adult Swim Announces New Tim & Eric Pilot, ‘Mike Tyson Mysteries,’ And More

Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim

Cartoon Network’s late night Adult Swim line-up is one of the precious few reasons I still bother having a cable box in my home these days. Within their nightly live-action and animated programming block can be found some of the funniest and imaginative writing and performances to ever be seen on television, along with reruns of Family Guy and American Dad.

The network shrewdly combines more accessible fare like Robot Chicken, Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV with boldly bizarre, short-lived experiments (they really should bring back The Heart, She Holler) to maintain their healthy fanbase and serve as a wonderland of creative freedom. They show no signs of letting up any time soon, and in fact Cartoon Network just released a list of new shows and pilots they have in development for Adult Swim in the coming year.

You can check out the full list here below.

Bob's Burgers Image

If you’ve not yet seen Bob’s Burgers, the animated comedy that runs as part of Fox’s Animation Domination lineup, then you are missing out on greatness. And considering the show only does “OK” in the ratings, it’s clear that many of you are among those missing out.

Many fans of fellow Animation Domination shows like Family Guy and American Dad! watch replays of those shows every night when replays of them are show on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim lineup. And soon you’ll be able to do the same with Bob’s Burgers as well.
