Will the Futurama episodes be new ones, the remaining written and animated ones, or just re-runs? I ask because I heard that Groening was thinking of shopping new seasons of Futurama to the Cartoon network and other networks. Is there any deal signed?
Can anyone here verify the rumor that Toonami Midnight Run is going to go back to its Saturdays at midnight timeslot? I remember how great that long ass block of Toonami was a couple of years ago. It was on until like 4 or 5 in the morning, AND THEY SHOWED ROBOTECH!!!! That ruled!
For what it's worth, the adultswim.com page has been updated, and Sealab's still on it. It's sort of interesting that Lupin the 3rd's listed on the Comedy page and Cowboy Bebop on the Action page, since the one's pretty much the inspiration for the other...
The overall revised schedule, for now, is as follows:
SUNDAY: Futurama, Oblongs, Sealab, Brak, Aqua Teen, Ripping Friends, Mission Hill (in that order, starting at 11 PM)
MON-THUR: Futurama, Home Movies, Lupin, Inuyasha, Yuyu Hakusho, Bebop (again, starting at 11PM)
Harvey Birdman, Space Ghost C2C and Baby Blues are still listed on the Comedy page, and the Gundam family of shows are still listed under Action, so I'm assuming they'll pop up from time to time. (Hope so -- I saw my first Harvey Birdman last night and it was hysterical.)

I think Harvey Birdman is/was one of the better series (all 6 episodes of it) on the Sunday Adult Swim.
Fortunately for us in the Central timezone, the goodness begins at 10PM instead of 11. But the Mountain folks are SOO lucky in this regards, as they start at 9.
Hey, 4 episodes of good stuff a week might mean getting new shows into the rotation. Unless CN will keep showing the same stuff over and over. I mean, I like Cowboy Beebop, but it's only got 26 episodes, and I've seen them all already; so, after 6.5 weeks, we can (hopefully) get something else for a while.

Thhhor tries to explain economics to SPP, but he doesn't use the phrases "freaks and peaks", "boomshakalaka", or "booty daddy" so SPP can't understand him.
Because ten billion years' time is so fragile, so ephemeral... it arouses such a bittersweet, almost heartbreaking fondness.

Well, their plan to contract Sunrise into making miore "Bebop" sessions fell through, and thank God it did. "Big O" deserves a new series, leave "Bebop" the hell alone. They get that desperate, show the movie.
They've got so much stuff on the block still to come (esp Trigun) that I'm not sure the M-TH slot is long enough, honestly.
I have a question. Since I work early I just started watching Adult Swim in the last month. Here is my question. WTF is up with Aqua Teen Hunger Force? The show is funny in a stupid sort of way. But do they have super-powers that only Frylock uses? And what is with that incompent scientist with his nipples showing who blows himself up at the beggining of every episode?

Just repeat to yourself "It's just a show, I should really just relax." Follow with "The bun is in your MIND." ;-)
Yes, the other members of the ATHF have super powers--the pretty useless kind. Shake can spit milkshakey goop a thrilling foot if he tries hard. Meatwad can create shapes (e.g.--Samurai Lincoln, a meat bridge, an igloo)and tame giant robotic rabbits with his greasy dance of joy.
Dr. Weird is the least competent incompetent scientist in the world. In the early episodes his inventions would get stolen or go rogue and show up later, but pretty much now he's just there to do something stupid and puncture any intimidation a mad scientist living on the Jersey Shore could possibly have.

I wonder if we'll ever get to see Love Hina air on Cartoon Network... It's a great show, lots of fanservice too. ^_^;; ___________________________________________________________
Love Hina is a good show, although it can get on my nerves after a while. I get tired of Keitaro getting knocked around every five minutes for every little thing that he does (and some he doesn't) that offends Naru or Motoko. I know that's a staple of anime comedy, but in this show it seems to get tired. The episodes ARE hilarious though, and the fanservice is nowhere near the heights of say, Aika, so it's not distracting from the plot. It's too bad that Shinobu's too young, cause I would totally be for Keitaro/Shinobu instead of Keitaro/Naru.
I dunno if it will ever get play on Cartoon Network, because there are other animes that would probably be ahead of it in line. Trigun, perhaps Evangelion, Rurouni Kenshin (which would be spectacular), Ranma 1/2 (seeing how well Rumiko Takahashi's Inu-Yasha is being recieved, although Ranma's unique constitution might give some CN suits pause), Slayers, Fushigi Yuugi, or Nadesieco would all be reasonable choices.
I'd also love it if any of CLAMP's stuff got some play, being a big fan. X: The TV series, Magic Knight Rayearth, Angelic Layer, or Card Captor Sakura would all make me a happy anime fan.

I'm hoping they're just putting Harvey Birdman on brief hiatus while they get a new season prepped, because that show's a classic!
I believe Space Ghost will also make a return, because his run has been far too long and memorable to be cast off without any kind of fanfare whatsoever. When Space Ghost goes out, he'll go out with a bang! (Either that, or he'll make Zorak go out with a boom)
Does THIS look like the face of a man with Testicles?
