Fall/Winter Cartoon Season — Simpsons, American Dad!, Regular Show, Gumball, Sanjay and Craig, SpongeBob, and more!

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.

Enjoy em!

MASTER SHAKE

THE TOP 20

After reading (sub-par) lists like “20 Essential Animated TV Series” and “All Time Top 50 Cartoon Shows”  (BOTH of which I found severely underwhelming/severely lacking), I made my OWN list of top 20 AMERICAN (because these lists really only cover American cartoons) TV series of ALL TIME!

Check it out. No particular order. You may disagree. You may have additions. Comment! These are my picks:

The Flintstones
The Jetsons
Looney Tunes
Futurama
The Simpsons
Family Guy
American Dad!
Bob’s Burgers
Regular Show
South Park
The Ren & Stimpy Show
Beavis & Butt-head
Spongebob Squarepants
Aqua Teen Hunger Force/Patrol Unit/Something Whatever
Chowder
The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack
Woody Woodpecker
Eek! the Cat
Animaniacs
Tiny Toons

What do you think? Check out the other 2 lists.. I guarantee you, MINE IS BEST. Haha.

Until next time (soon)!

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.

Ren and Stimpy, SpongeBob, Aqua Teen, Squidbillies!

6 Jan
Ren and Stimpy

REN AND STIMPY!

Wanted to write quickly about the new/upcoming cartoons here in a few days.

For those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter (you should!) I’ve mentioned a few things lately.

They have been showing Ren and Stimpy marathons on Nickelodeon (NickToons) lately, which has been EXCELLENT!

It’s always been one of my favorite cartoons – it’s amazing – weird, and funny, and perfect. Billy West!!

I also believe there was a couple of new SpongeBobs on Nick today, and they were great.

Finally, in adult swim news from Dave Willis himself, new ATHF episodes start in May, and new Squidbillies in September, although they’re trying to move the Squids’ date up!

So much great news!
