Adult Swim to Serve Super Milk-Chan

Come November, Milkshake from Aqua Teen Hunger Force won’t be the only cat with dairy product nomenclature on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim late night animation block. The cable outlet has acquired ADV Films’ irreverent, politically incorrect anime series, The Super Milk-Chan Show, for air next month.

Produced by Studio Pierrot (GTO, Saiyuki), The Super Milk-Chan Show blends live-action with animation to chronicle the adventures of Milk, a selfish, foul-mouthed female superhero with no real superpowers. Joining her in her escapades are an obsolete, abused robot, a slug that drinks too much and a mechanical dog with a bad habit of relieving itself at inappropriate moments. The show is now available on DVD from ADV Films.

Adult Swim airs Sunday through Thursday from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. (ET/PT) and features such cult favorites as Sealab 2021; Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law; Cowboy Bebop and Inuyasha, as well as Former Fox favorites Family Guy and Futurama. The block is No.1 in its time period on all of ad-supported basic cable with adults 18-24 and adults 18-34.

ADV Films’ extensive catalog also includes such hit anime properties as Neon Genesis Evangelion, RahXephon, Robotech, Full Metal Panic!, Hello Kitty and Azumanga Daioh, as well as live-action science fiction programs such as The Jim Henson Co.’s Farscape and the nationally syndicated Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda.
