uncle grandpa


check out all of the characters stand alone on my fanart tumblr : http://veestrainingcamp.tumblr.com/

So I’ve been slowly working on this idea for 6 months hahah.. I was like “oh CARTOON NETWORK SHIPPUDEN ! that sounds cool. I’ll just make a lineup with (almost) every CN franchise and dress them as Naruto characters”. It makes no sense haha, but I had a lot of fun, and it taught me a lot as an artist to work with all these different styles.

I looked up prices to print out posters, and I found out I could print OK quality A2 size (33"x23") and sell them for like 9$ (not including shipping). Would you be into that ? you should PM me if peeps are interested I’d totally do that :)

Here’s the Cartoon Network schedule for Monday, June 5 to Sunday, June 11.

Two absolute shockers here. First off, Adventure Time has reruns for the first time since July last year. (excluding April Fools Day) It’s a weekly slot airing in order from Season 1. That’ll be a lot of episodes to air. It even gets to be the movie filler for the movie preceding it.

Second, The Amazing World of Gumball has DETHRONED Teen Titans Go! from #1. This time without a (advertised) marathon. I don’t know if I can even count all that Gumball on Saturday or Sunday as a marathon because, well, that’s pretty identical to the schedule we had last week. Seriously, scroll down a bit on my blog. It’s the same.

Clarence is back, this time with a hour and a half long miniseries premiering this Monday. Before you ask, yes, despite CN cancelling Clarence, they ARE advertising this month-long bomb. And then there’s new episodes Tues-Thurs. Uncle Grandpa gets new episodes this month too, albeit unadvertised. I have a feeling this is going to be the final few episodes of the show before being done forever. Reruns of Uncle Grandpa are being added to Boomerang this week.

Looks like Steven Universe’s Friday reruns have a theme. This week’s theme: Season 3 episodes where Steven learns new powers. Floating, dream hijacking, body hijacking, spiky bubbles… stuff like that.

Here’s what’s new new new new this week:

  • Clarence: Stormy Sleepover - Hour and a half long event - Monday at 4p
  • Clarence - Tues-Thurs at 4p
  • Uncle Grandpa - Tues-Fri at 4:15p, Two new episodes on Tuesday
  • Teen Titans Go! - Friday at 6p
  • Ben 10 - Friday at 6:30p
  • Transformers: Robots in Disguise - Saturday at 6:30a
  • Justice League Action - Saturday at 7:30a
  • The Powerpuff Girls - Sunday at 5:30p

Top 3 shows:

  1. The Amazing World of Gumball (#1 for the first time since December) - 131 - 36%
  2. Teen Titans Go! (#2 for the first time since December) - 128 - 36%
  3. Ben 10 - 46 - 13%

The top 3 shows are roughly 79% of the schedule.

(something I forgot to put on the schedule pic: the “Summertime Go” block airs Friday from 6p-8p.)

Current State of Cartoon Network’s Shows

Adventure Time is getting reruns on Mondays, but it’s ending next year.

The Amazing World of Gumball is getting strong reruns, plus all-day marathons at times. The creator is leaving after the sixth season, but the show will go on without his involvement, which may hint at a season 7

Teen Titans Go is obviously being reran into the ground and airs new episodes on Fridays along with Ben 10

Uncle Grandpa is in it’s last season, but now it only airs reruns on Boomerang and gets a one and done showing on CN with little advertisement. The final episode is airing in 10 days according to Wikipedia

Steven Universe is now getting zero reruns

Clarence is in it’s last season and is at least getting decent advertising from CN

Mighty Magiswords is airing new episodes in July.

We Bare Bears is getting a decent amount of reruns but not the entire week. It hasn’t been renewed for a fourth season yet. But it will be airing in the Summertime Go block sometime soon.

The Tom and Jerry Show, Wabbit, Bunnicula, My Knight and Me, Sonic Boom, and Be Cool Scooby Doo are all on Boomerang

Powerpuff Girls 2016 airs on Boomerang, but gets a one-and-done showing on Sundays on the main channel. Perhaps they are planning to cancel it.

Ben 10 2016 also gets reran into the ground and airs new episodes in the Summertime Go block on Fridays along with Teen Titans Go

Justice League Action is airing new episodes on early Saturday mornings

Transformers RID is off the schedule, but its getting two new episodes in July

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Ninjago, and Nexo Knights have not been seen since April or May

Supernoobs is apparently coming back in August

A more accurate representation 


Time and again, I’ve seen many an appreciation post about today’s popular cartoons, and with every one you see include something from Steven Universe, Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, etc. Now I’m not knocking on those shows, but along the way there are other series that deserve at least a second chance, misunderstood, unfairly got hated on, the least watched/talked about, neglected. These titles shown here are among the current or recently ended shows – original and acquired – from Disney XD, Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon here in the U.S. that are or will soon fade into obscurity. 

I do watch some of the popular cartoons of recent years, but I also happen to be the kind of person who watches other shows almost watched by no one else. They’re entertaining enough for me to watch them. I do realize that people don’t have to like them, but it sometimes frustrate me to see some of them send hate to them, its fans and the people behind the scenes of some series, while they could just ignore it and move on. 

All I’m saying that some shows out there need some more attention…
