This topic is started to freakin' remind to watch Cartoon Network Sunday nights. I always forget and I always hear about what funny shows I missed.

On another note, I read that CN has acquired the rights to "Ren & Stimpy" and will begin producing new episodes with John K. at the helm. Plus, they'll show the episodes that Nickelodeon deemed too racy and will air them during the Adult Swim Sunday night block.

This topic made me remember. And now it's time for an all-new Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law.

I've heard good things about harvey Birdman Attorney at Law. Doesn't he represent other Hanna Barbera characters that get in trouble with the law?

Was up sick watching this the other night. I don't know why they don't do more to publicize this stuff. Hilarious. Caught Aqua Teen Hunger Squad which is really strange but VERY funny. (I'd seen that prior.) Also caught the Birdman thing for the first time. Hilarious. He was defending Scooby and Shaggy against drug charges.

"More young guys are watching the Cartoon Network's 'Adult Swim' late-night programming block than either one of the hosts of 'The Late Show' and the 'Tonight' show," the New York Post announced a week or two ago, and it seemed like one of those Post items that's sort of true but not really. Surprisingly, however, the paper had it right. Among 18-to-24-year-old men, says Nielsen, "Adult Swim" beats not just Jay and Dave but also Craig, Jimmy, Carson, and even Conan. Which, come to think of it, makes a lot of sense. "Adult Swim" standard-bearer Family Guy, like its lineup brethren—and unlike the usual stars-flacking-movies late-night fare—is hugely, and smartly, fun stuff. You know the famous clip of William Shatner at that late-'70s science-fiction awards show? Where he sings a totally unironic, interpretative rendition of Elton John's "Rocket Man?" Probably not, actually, and that's why it's so brilliant that Family Guy is willing to spend 90 seconds spoofing a clip almost no one knows. It's a side-splittingly funny moment for bona fide TV geeks, and that's the true virtue of "Adult Swim." The whole block is a haven for TV geeks, where even the marketing campaign speaks of dork virtues. "Your Adult Swim programming is presented without: Annoying squeeze credits [and] annoying voice-overs, but we're keeping the annoying lower third Adult Swim bug," reads on one of the spots, white text on a black screen. "Thank you." Oh no, Cartoon Network, thank you.

Adult Swim is great but Family Guy is neither brilliant nor funny.

The Cartoon Network is adding a new original to its popular late-night "Adult Swim" programming block. The cable network has ordered 13 episodes of "The Venture Brothers." While the pilot episode will premiere on Sunday, July 27, the series will begin its regular run in March of 2004.

Created by Jackson Publick and produced by Noodlesoup, "The Venture Brothers" follows the adventures of Hank, Dean and Dr. Venture who live on a ranch with a high tech lab, but travel around the world on their adventures. They're accompanied by their bodyguard Brock, as famous for his mullet as his skills with a knife.

"'The Venture Brothers' is a wickedly funny show that will fit nicely into our Sunday night 'Adult Swim' lineup, where we showcase our original comedies," says Mike Lazzo, Cartoon Network senior vice president. "It draws from classics like 'The Hardy Boys,' the '60s 'Batman' live-action series and, of course, 'Jonny Quest,' but with a modern, wry sensibility."

Starting at 11 p.m., the three-hour "Adult Swim" block, offering toons aimed at teens and adults, has become wildly successful for the network. During the most recent sweeps period, the block averaged better ratings among males 18-to-34 than David Letterman.

The New Adult Cartoons Animation isn't just for kids anymore. "A host of new, cutting-edge animated shows is set to debut this year and next. Many of them feature brash characters and dysfunctional families, as well as story lines that poke fun at societal and cultural taboos. The new shows, also on such cable channels as Showtime and the Sci Fi Channel, along with the earlier success of "The Simpsons," "South Park" and Adult Swim's "Space Ghost Coast to Coast," prove that TV animation - once dismissed as kids' stuff - is finally being taken seriously."
