Cartoon Net announces new shows

The Cartoon Network showed off its upcoming offerings for the rest of 2006 to advertisers this morning at the network's annual kids upfront breakfast. The cable net announced plans to air its first original film combining live action and animation, and that it will bring back hit Ben 10, and will premiere Class of 3000, a series created by Andre 3000 of Outkast.

In the original movie Re-Animated, the first Cartoon Network movie to combine live action and animation, a 12-year-old boy needs surgery to receive a new brain. This may sound like a parent's dream come true, but there is a catch: The only brain available is the frozen one of a famous animator. Upon waking up from surgery, Jimmy discovers he can see animated characters that no one else can.

In Class of 3000, Outkast singer Andre Benjamin, aka Andre 3000, has crafted a tale about a group of musically gifted kids at a performing arts school. When a former student returns to the school after becoming famous, he brings sunshine and music into the lives of the kids. Benjamin will contribute music and his voice talent to the series, which will also feature Tom Kenny, the actor who voices a little guy named SpongeBob SquarePants.

Popular favorites Teen Titans are getting a movie of their own as well, to be called Teen Titans Go To Tokyo. When Titans Tower is infiltrated by a high-tech ninja, the Titans trail it to Japan. Action ensues when the Titans clash with the villainous Japanese criminal Brushogun.

Other original series announced are Squirrel Boy, which tells the story of a boy and his squirrel pal Rodney, and My Gym Partner's a Monkey, where a kid is accidentally sent to a school for animals and befriends a spider monkey, one of the funniest primates. Gym Partner premiered last week.

Original movies also coming down the pipeline are OPERATION: Z.E.R.O. starring the Codename: Kids Next Door versus tapioca-eating Senior Citizombies, and the gang from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends in Good Wilt Hunting, a poignant story about imaginary friends coming back to visit their creators.

The network has also aquired the rights to air Japanese animation master Hayao Miyazaki's films Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. For comic book fans, the network has the Marvel Comics animated superhero movies Ultimate Avengers, Ultimate Avengers 2, and Iron Man blasting onto the schedule later this year.

I have to say I have enjoyed this past year line up on Cartoon Network. However I do miss some of the "classic" shows. Anyone else miss "Cow and Chicken", "Samuri Jack", and "Power Puff Girls".

Maan this really blows. JLU and TT were great shows. Not to sound childish but, it would really be kewl to have a cartoon channel for adults.

What are the people at CN thinking! They get rid of good shows like Megas XLR and JLU. Then they put on new shows that look like something you would watch on Nicktoons. If I wanted to look at Spongebob I would look at that channel.

Season Six seems out of reached most likely for Teen Titans most of the time an anime creator really ends the series with a movie to answer all the unanswered questions the season finale had left.

I hope TT and JLU get renewd for a 6th season and I can't wait for the movie to come out and it might be good if they would make a JLU movie that would be cool.

It all looked pretty typical cartoon network weird. Except for the Titans movie. I can't even say how off the wall I am for that. Now they just need to bring it back for a season six. I can see the headline now: Teen Titans: Resurrected. Maybe...

Man oh man, whats up with all of these shows? I hate these new shows. Ben 10, Code Lyoko, Robot Boy, There getting crazy! Also with Nick! The X's is a really bad show. Why can't they bring back the classics? Like Kenan And Kel, (+ the movie, I would watch that every day!) Courage the Cowardly Dog, Johnny Bravo, Invader Zim, Dexter's Laboratory, and Angry Beavers. Those were the best shows on television. And they replace them with The X's? Jeez! But one more thing, one day, Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon will come out with a cheesy show and their ratings are going to plummit!

The only good news I see there is the Month of Miyazaki. Hayao Miyazaki is an amazing man and pretty much anything coming out of Studio Ghibli is wonderful. Just for that I'm gonna give them a huge thumbs up!!!! They need good anime on there! Naruto is great(I'll admit that). But One Piece is horrible. =3 I'm with scopeless on the adult swim thing. Two diff channels.. that'd be awesome!!!! More Inuyasha, FMA, Trigun, Samurai Champloo, and NGE for me! xD(+ the funny shows like family guy and aqua teen) .. man do I talk to much!

I'm all for a seperate adult swim. I think cancelling Teen Titans and Justice League Unlimited is their biggest mistake. The only show they have worth anything now is Ben 10.

Interesting moves here. This could be the year CN gets the monkey off their backs and topples Nickelodeon. If I were an exec at Nick, I'd be worried.
