MTV takes on Cartoon Network

  • 24comments

MTV Networks announced today that it will be airing a new block of adult animated cartoons on MTV2. The animation block, beginning Friday, June 9, will feature the returning Celebrity Deathmatch and new offerings, Chico and Guapo and Where My Dogs At

Where My Dogs At? is created by comedian Jeffrey Ross and stars the voices of Ross and ex-SNL'er Tracy Morgan. The two portray stray dogs who experience hijinks and adventures on the streets of Los Angeles.

Chico and Guapo revolves around two janitors who work at a recording studio and meet up with wacky pop stars and music industry types. The show is cocreated by Orlando Jones and is a recurring segment on the actor's nightly show on FX.

Celebrity Deathmatch is a claymation show that pits various celebrities against each other in a wrestling ring.

MTV2 already runs the popular comedy series Wonder Showzen and The Andy Milonakis Show. With this new block of animation, it appears the network is attempting to lure some of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim demographic, the coveted males 18-34.
