This Dec 9th-recorded episode should have been up earlier today, but after visiting an old family friend for the first time in five years, I slept for about nine hours. Bizarre sleep patterns aside, what do we talk about this lovely holiday season? The always bullshit Annie Awards! DVD releases! Free Comic Book Day announcements! Avengers vs. X-Men! The shitload of deaths that occurred earlier this month! And, of course, our favorite Christmas specials. Dragonpiece finally makes his long-awaited ScratchCast debut, and the random sleeping Australian dude makes his return. Oh, and we reveal that we’ll have an exclusive interview with someone involved with Weekly SHONEN JUMP Alpha next month.

P.S. The song at the beginning is Uncaged Czarina, and it serves as our theme song. And so we won’t have to pay $10 every time we use it…Free Royalty Free Music by We also used the song Silver Shine from that same dude.

Psst, wanna see something awesome? Well, do ya? Do ya?! DO YA?! Okay, settle down. On Monday night, Cartoon Network gave us viewers a not-so-secret preview of CN Studios’ newest cartoon, Secret Mountain Fort Awesome.

Now before I get into the review, I’m going to talk about what started this series in the first place: Uncle Grandpa. (Head below the jump for more.)


Hey guys, today I got a very special email from Turner Broadcasting about this year’s Cartoon Network upfront: now what you are about to see is the official thing from them. Check back soon, because all of our thoughts on the upfront will be revealed soon on Not Another Old Cartoon Podcast! But for now just ooh and ahh over the exciting announcements!


I contemplated making a top 5 or top 10 for the year but I felt like I wouldn’t be giving some shows their due if I just did that so rather than make a list I decided to give a micro-review and some personal thoughts on the cartoons of 2010 that I was able to catch. For the record, I did not include any direct sequels such as Ben 10: Ultimate Alien or Total Drama: World Tour. Follow the jump to see what I thought about the new cartoons that premiered in 2010.

So, I think you people remember that in Cartoon Network’s Codename: Kids Next Door pilot, kids weren’t even allowed to even touch the water during the adult’s swim time. But come 2011, kids might be able to even swim in the water, because Adult Swim will be starting as early as 9PM eastern time and 8PM central time. Adult Swim would be expanding to that time period for 7 days a week. I think it’s wrong to let a kid watch the programming block at 8PM on a school night.

Hello, I’m Kieran Pertnav, the newest guest writer here on the Scratch Pad. I believe that the renewal and cancellation of shows are one of the most intense parts of television, and also one of the most interesting. Today, I’m going to take a look at several of Cartoon Network’s current shows, and have a guess as to whether they’ll be renewed or canceled.


In the pilot episode of Cartoon Network’s popular series Codename: Kids Next Door, the KND crew catch wind of an extended adult swim time and proceed to free the pool of it’s dictators in order to restore the natural order of the pool. How ironic that in 2011 Cartoon Network will tell the kids to get out of the pool as early as 9PM eastern and pacific time and 8PM in central and mountain time zones. Their highly successful adult targeted segment Adult Swim will expand another hour into Cartoon Network’s precious prime time hours. Where are the Kids Next Door when you need them?
