Friday Cartoon Round Up

Jackson Publick has announced on his livejournal that the new season of The Venture Bros. will premier on June 1. There's also a mention of season 4. You can now commence being overcome with relief and joy. I'll give you a minute.

In his post, he talks a bit about the wacky production schedule for the season (for anyone lucky enough to see the rough cut that aired on Adult Swim this past Sunday was episode #28) and provides a bunch of cool looking stills. He also says that he has done some writing and voice work for a new Adult Swim show entitled SuperJail. I have no idea what that is. Presumably it is about jail in some way and is probably worth checking out. I find that most things on Adult Swim are.

He provides some details the Venture Bros. panel at New York Comic Con too. It's going to be pretty awesome. I would suggest you go if you were going to be in the area on Saturday, April 19th, but I suspect that it will be one of those panels that is going to be tough to get into. I really don't need you talking up a seat, thereby reducing my chances of getting a seat.

In other Cartoon Network related news, they have officially announced Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which will feature Batman teaming up with different guest stars from the DCU, like Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Blue Beetle. Director Ben Jones offers up a bunch of teases, but no actual information on his blog, and Director Brandon Vietti, on his blog, promises that even though there have been a bunch of other Batman cartoon, this will still be good. (Both links via Blog@Newsarama.) It will air Friday nights in the Fall.

I'm not sure what I think about this just yet. It looks kind of cute, and is probably aimed at a younger audience, but that shouldn't really stop me from enjoying it. I just hope it's better The Batman, and that while they were digging through the archives for characters, they don't ignore the female ones. I'm still pretty annoyed about The Batman giving us a Justice League that had neither Wonder Woman nor Black Canary. Also, I hope that if they are going with the Silver Age, beardless version of Green Arrow, that means we will be getting a more traditional, Silver Age version of Aquaman. Grim and gritty Aquaman, with the harpoon hand or whatever, sucks.

Jack:

Now if Saul of the Molemen just gets another season, it'll be perfect.
