10 Oct

Yeti Krabs - Spongebob Squarepants

Instead of a constantly-updated blog post or two, we added a sweet new feature to the blog design here!

Up above and to the right (and we’re also linking them here in this post), next to the (also updated) ‘About‘ page, we made two new pages — ‘Show Statuses‘ and ‘Upcoming Episodes‘!

So, check out the new header area. And bookmark us!

We’ll leave some of the upcoming 2015/2016 show info we’ve had posted here for a while now below, but from now on, we’ll be updating all the show/episode info on those two pages!

Plus, those two pages have all kinds of sweet links and stuff.

The Wattersons.

Amazing World of Gumball – the 40-episode season 3 is currently airing Thursdays at 6:30pm on Cartoon Network. It is the first season that Gumball will be voiced by voice actor Jacob Hopkins.

American Dad! is moving to TBS for a 15-episode 11th season to premiere July 2014. Things on the show are said to be staying the same, despite the departure of Mike Barker from the series in November 2013 over creative differences.

Aqua TV Show Show – season 11 begins 2015 on Adult Swim.

Bojack Horseman – season 1 premieres August 22nd 2014 on Netflix.

Brickleberry – season 3 begins September 16th 2014 on Comedy Central.

China IL – season 3 begins ..? TBA on Adult Swim, but currently in production. (Sundays fall 2014?)

Metalocalypse – ..?

Mr. Pickles – season 1 premiere confirmed for fall 2014 on adult swim.

Regular Show – season 5 currently continues to air on Cartoon Network.

Rick and Morty – season 1 ended in April. The 10-episode season 2 is currently in production, with at least the first episode already written. It’s slated to air late 2014 or early 2015.

Sanjay and Craig – renewed for two more seasons, the first slated to air later in 2014, and the third in 2015.

The Simpsons – season 26 continues later in 2014, and FXX will marathon all 500+ episodes of The Simpsons back to back in August, marking the longest marathon in TV history.

South Park – season 18 begins September 2014 on Comedy Central (probably on Thursdays)

SpongeBob Squarepants – season 9 continues, next likely confirmed episode to air is is “Yeti Krabs”, TBA 2014 on Nickelodeon. The Nickelodeon episodes probably haven’t been getting much attention due to the current ongoing production of the second Spongebob movie.

Squidbillies – season 9 begins ..? TBA on Cartoon Network (Sundays fall 2014?)

Superjail! – season is currently airing at 11:45pm on Adult Swim on Sundays.

Wander Over Yonder – season 1 continues on Disney XD only, and the series is currently deep into a 39-episode season. March 31st 2014 marked the first WOY episode to air exclusively on Disney XD, and not on Disney Channel first.

SO….Perhaps we’ll see the start of Mr. Pickles on Adult Swim soon, and maybe Nickelodeon will grace us with one or more new SpongeBob episode(s)!

Wander Over Yonder

Aqua Something, Sanjay and Craig, other Cartoon Network shows

Sanjay and Craig

Sanjay and Craig

Current great cartoons/animated TV we’ve been watching:

Regular Show on Cartoon Network on Mondays at 8/7c (pm), (The Amazing World of) Gumball airs new episodes at 7:30/6:30c on Wednesdays, and Annoying Orange has new episodes airing Thursdays at 7:30/6:30c!

The occasional The Looney Tunes Show on Cartoon Network is really good too.

On Nickelodeon, Spongebob Squarepants obviously airs the occasional completely random episode, and the new show Sanjay and Craig (about a boy and a snake) is really cool too.

The upcoming stuff:

As we all know, FOX’s Animation Domination is currently airing encore episodes, but they’ll be back soon enough, as will Comedy Central’s Brickleberry and South Park.

Aqua TV Show Show

Aqua TV Show Show (Aqua Something/Aqua Teen)

We’re SUPER psyched for the return of Aqua Whatever in AUGUST on adult swim!

China, IL is slated to come back to the swim in September or October, and Hopefully new Superjail! and Metalocalypse soon too (here’s to hoping!)

Heck, Bob’s Burgers is coming to adult swim on June 23!

A Year In Cartoons – 2011 To 2012 – A Rundown

30 May
Regular Show

Realistic Mordecai & Rigby

It’s been almost a year since I’ve posted!

To be fair, I moved (probably several times), lost several jobs, and I’m raising a 5 year old.

But he loves cartoons too!

For all of you on Twitter, many of you know that I’m on there constantly, of course – (twitter.com/animatedtvblog).

I’m changing the name of the blog here to “Animated TV Blog” like I use over on Twitter.

This year had a ton of great shows – Animation Domination, of course, with The MacFarlane Trinity: Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show.

We saw the rise in popularity of the amazing Bob’s Burgers, the cancellation of Napoleon Dynamite and Allen Gregory (thankfully!) and of course, my lifelong love, The Simpsons is still on the air and going strong (phooey to those who bitch about it!)

I’ve gathered together for the next post or two some interesting tidbits.

Futurama, as many know, is back in full force, and on Comedy Central starting in June 20th (check out the countdown here!) This last season of South Park and Ugly Americans were both pretty excellent – they had their hits and misses, all all series do (NONE of the series I’m mentioning are exempt from this rule!)

Aqua Something You Know Whatever starts in June as well on Cartoon Network’s adult swim – the 24th – and Squidbillies begins its new season soon also. Metalocalypse is well underway for this season too. There’s still a ton of great cartoons on adult swim!

The days on Cartoon Network are full of Regular Show and Adventure Time on most Mondays, sometimes The Amazing World of Gumball.

REALLY sad to see Secret Mountain Fort Awesome and Problem Solverz get cancelled.

And we never got our Cheyenne Cinnamon or Soul Quest Overdrive! Argh.

MTV did bring back Beavis and Butt-head, which honestly, I LOVED.

FX has Archer and Unsupervised (which I liked, hopefully it stays on air – it’s been renewed for a second season!)

Even SpongeBob Squarepants on Nick has been having great episodes lately! Some misses, but mostly hits.

I believe that’s mostly it for the moment.

In an upcoming post, I was inspired to write a “20 Essential American Cartoons” list, based on another one I found online – and mine is a VAST improvement!

So, here I am. I’m back.

Upcoming Chris Prynoski (Titmouse Studios) Interview, Season Finales/Premieres

28 May

We’re thrilled to report Chris Prynoski of Titmouse Studios has agreed to do an interview with us!

Really psyched about that. I will have that up soon.

In other news, all the FOX shows had their season finales (The Simpsons, American Dad!, Family Guy/Cleveland Show, and Bob’s Burgers), just as South Park (Comedy Central, Wednesdays), Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1, Superjail, (Sundays, adult swim) Regular Show, Adventure Time and The Amazing World of Gumball (Cartoon Network, all on Mondays) seasons are running strong!

Also SERIOUSLY looking forward to the new season of Futurama and Ugly Americans starting Thursday, June 23rd on Comedy Central!

The Simpsons of course ended with the Edna Krabappel/Ned Flanders romance (“NEDNA”) and you can vote on whether or not that should continue here (http://thesimpsons.com/nedna).

Another poll of note is for the #1 “best animated series of all time” being done amongst a “25 Greatest Animated TV Shows” feature by Entertainment Weekly here — I feel they omit a lot of shows, but major shows are included. Vote!

And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter (twitter.com/AnimatedTVShows).

More soon! Thanks for reading.
