    I don't know if you have all checked this out, but's its VERY irreverant 15 minute cartoons that are just HILARIOUS, it's on late on Sundays, and features just some wacky shit. You must check it out.

    They're not all 15 minutes.

    30 minutes:

    Home Movies (now my favorite of the whole block)

    Space Ghost Coast to Coast

    Mission Hill

    Baby Blues

    Welcome to Eltingville (although I think this was just a special)

    15 minutes:

    The Brak Show

    Aqua Teen Hunger Force

    Sealab 2021

    Did anyone watch it last night? They showed that dog show that had Jack Black as the voice of the dog, but for some reason it was being shown in French and English at the same time - it happened on every TV in my house.

    If there's any one show you don't like, just watch it a few times and it will grow on you. I didn't like Home Movies or Aqua Teen at first but now they're my favorites.

    What would Adult Swim be considered? Its not a show, so what is it?

    Well, whatever it is, it's funny as hell.

    They like to screw with your head...the SGC2C with the high pitch buzz in the background...thought my HT blew a speaker.

    Kept thinking the SAP button was on yesterday....I'd do the same if I could

    Shit did you see Sealab 2022 last night? HILARIOUS. That trash robot keeps taking Captains teeth:

    "What are you...making a necklace?"

    and later he comes back to kill his pet scorpion wearing a tooth necklace.

    Also, in Aqua Teen:

    MC Pee Pants

    "Im an 8 foot tall spider wearing a diaper, Im insane"

    Funniest things since...ever...maybe like the first time you saw Beavis and Butthead, it's THAT new.

    The Sealab was a rerun but still awesome. "MC Pee Pants" on Aqua Teen Hunger Squad was hilarious as well.

    I really liked "Welcome to Elkingville" and I hope they bring it on full time.

    I love Adult Swim.

    The trivia contest rolled me when they threw in both Krull and Blackula.

    Writer for Welcome to Eltingville, Evan Dorkin [​IMG]
    It was drawn in the same style as Clerks: TAS, with that thick black line. I liked it.
    Home Movies
    Paula: What'd you just say?
    Brendon: This meatloaf is dry.
    Paula: Before that.
    Brendon: This is meatloaf?
    Paula: No, before that.
    Brendon: This fish is dry.

    Adult Swim should be on more often. My viewing of The Practice gets in the way of the beginning of it, plus I have to go to school on Monday.

    They should do Adult Swim every night with like 1 hour worth of shows (different for each night) for the weekdays, then have the anime saturday night thing, then show something else on sundays (like more shows or something).

    It's a shame I'm always so preoccupied and/or tired Sunday nights, because Adult Swim is terrific!

    I am pumped that they repeated the "Welcome to Eltingville" pilot, as I heard about it the day after it last aired. I've been a huge fan of Evan Dorkin's comics (Milk & Cheese being the most famous), and I really hope Cartoon Network would consider more episodes. Dorkin already developed a series "bible" and some ideas for further episodes.

    BTW, when writing the "Trivia off," Evan and his wife had to do tons of research for those questions. In an online chat, someone asked Evan what the answers to the disqualified questions were (ie "What's Xena's bra size?")... Evan seemed rather perplexed that anyone would want to know the answers and admitted that he had no idea.

    Some further factoids... Home Movies is from some of the same people responsible for Comedy Central's late, great "Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist." Some of the same voices are very obvious, and Jonathan Katz has appeared on Home Movies several times. Baby Blues and Mission Hill are network reject series. Baby Blues was on ABC and Mission Hill on UPN (I think). I'm curious how many episodes there are of Mission Hill, as it was cancelled rather fast. Wonder why Cartoon Network hasn't looked into The Oblongs or Clerks: The Animated Series...

    Aqua Teen Hunger Force is genius.

    Have there been any new episodes of Harvey Birdman? The one with Apache Chief from Super-Friends was a laugh riot!

    I'm pretty sure Baby Blues was on WB, as there have been some references to it in the show. And so it found its way to Cartoon Network since they're both part of AOL/TW.

    As far as I know there are only two episodes of Harvey Birdman. The other episode is the one that put a whole different spin on Johnny Quest.

    The Brak Show isn't nearly as funny as the antics of Brak in any episode of Cartoon Planet, they really need to bring that back.
