TITANS-GO!

TOOOOOOOOONIGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHT ON CARTOOOOOOOOOOOONNETWORK!(11.17.17)

On the Teen Titans Go! Thanksgiving special, Robin warns the Titans not to do something, they do it, and then shenanigans! A.K.A:NINETY PERCENT OF THIS SHOW! I can handle the show being a mean spirited parody, but does it HAVE to be so formulaic?!

On a “sneak peak” of Unikitty, we see the creators of Teen Titans Go create a legitimately good cartoon that I have no problems with…something smells in the state of Denmark.

OK KO teases the Voxman shippers, and Professor Venomous’ adorable mousedaughter Fink has a superform that looks a LOT like…KO’s form….MAN Denmark is STINKING tonight folks!

We Bare Snares reveals the bears HAD to have been kids in the nineties with laser tag, while adult Grizz makes everybody smile with a flower costume because of course he does…also I ship Ranger Tabes and Xiao and YOU CAN’T STOP ME!

Finally close it out with a Clarence Thanksgiving special where its revealed it takes place in…NINETEEN NINETY EIGHT?! I…have questions.

the best part of gumball is the plots are always something so simple like “gumball’s family is losing money!” but that slowly becomes “gumball’s family has no money so the whole universe loses it’s whole animation” 

and then like, ANYTHING can happen inbetween, is there gonna be a scene animated by a professional anime company this episode? sure

are gumball and darwin gonna find a void where forgotten boring background characters and mistakes go and crazy frog is there? sure

is gumball gonna realize there’s more shows within his own show and try to become part of that show? sure

is a character who appeared in 3 episodes as a background character in the first season who had like 3 lines total gonna come back as the main villain of the show later? sure, why not

Normally I wait until Sunday to post this stuff, that way CN’s backdoor is all up to date for the week and everything… but this schedule is so… interesting, that I just HAD to post it early. If there’s anything wrong about Saturday and Sunday I’ll fix it. Anyways:

Here’s the Cartoon Network schedule for Monday, July 31 to Sunday, August 6.

Yeah.

I did not expect this. Nor do I want this.

When I found out TTG had a marathon on the 31st, I was not real surprised. It’s a way to hype up the miniseries. I’m used to day long TTG marathons anyway, nothing surprised me anymore. Or so I thought.

Then I saw August 1st. Once again, I kinda expected a TTG marathon leading up to the Night Begins to Shine miniseries (looks rad) and OK K.O. (is rad) premieres. And of course, Island Adventures would be aired right before, as with any other special CN airs anymore.

Then August 2nd’s schedule came out. I started to get concerned. “Is the entire weekday schedule gonna be just TTG and K.O. for this week?”, I thought.

I was proven right, with the 3rd and 4th’s schedules. “Oh god, will the entire WEEK BE JUST TEEN TITANS GO AND OK K.O.?!”, I worried.

I was wrong. Sorta.

I mean, look, there’s Megamind. Back from a brief run on Discovery Family. There’s that. I guess.

But look at the rest of the weekend. Nothing but Teen Titans Go and OK K.O.. They even pulled new episodes of Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Justice League Action, and The Powerpuff Girls just so they could air an hour more of nothing but TTG, OK K.O., and Megamind. That’s your variety this week.

Now, I want to know, WHO AT CN THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA? I’ve never seen any network’s schedule stoop this low. At least when other networks dominate their schedule with only one show for days on end (like FXX with Simpsons marathons or VH1 Classic with 47 days straight of Saturday Night Live) they ADVERTISE it. This is just a regular schedule to CN. That makes it 1000x worse.

Whatever. Reruns of Gumball, We Bare Bears, Ben 10, and most likely Steven Universe return the week after this. So do new episodes of Transformers, Justice League Action, and The Powerpuff Girls. We Bare Bears returns from hiatus, too.

Here’s what’s new new new new next week:

  • Teen Titans Go! The Night Begins to Shine - SPECIAL MINISERIES - Tues-Fri at 6:00p
  • OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes - SERIES PREMIERE - FOUR episodes Tuesday at 6:10p, two episodes a day Wed-Fri at 6:10p
