Every Simpsons Ever on FXX August 21, Netflix-Exclusive Series Bojack Horseman August 22

21 Aug

Simpsons marathon - every Simpsons ever!

The massive The Simpsons ‘Every Episode Ever’ marathon has begun — today (Aug 21) — on FXX, and Bojack Horseman will be available tomorrow (Aug 22) on Netflix! Hope everyone has their DVRs all set up.

Let’s talk about Bojack Horseman for a minute.

It’s an interesting concept.

You take a mega-star like Will Arnett, and then make him the voice of a talking horse-man who is a washed-up former actor.

This is the kind of thing that’s made for people like us. Weird, dirty, and seemingly hilarious, this made-for-Netflix animated series looks like a win on all fronts.

There is a cool gallery of Will Arnett and Aaron Paul on set doing the voiceover work for Bojack here, and two trailers have also been released for the show’s premiere.

This isn’t the first time Netflix has offered original animated content, although it is one of the first original fully made-for-Netflix shows out there. Another example of Netflix animated TV content is the former Cartoon Network show Problem Solverz — all the previously unaired season 2 episodes (that I only just found out exist!) are also now available exclusively on Netflix!

(Now if they’d only give us more Secret Mountain Fort Awesome!!)

We’re all really looking forward to the Netflix exclusive premiere of Bojack Horseman tomorrow, and we’re also psyched for the ‘Every Simpsons Ever’ marathon event that has already begun, today, on FXX!

Bojack Horseman - August 22 on Netflix!

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.
