Adult Swim celebrated April Fool’s Day with a big surprise announcement of many much-anticipated premieres, including recently announced YOLO: Crystal Fantasy and more of favorites like Rick and Morty, Robot Chicken, Dream Corp LLC and Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal — to name a few. The network also dropped the trailers for Rick and Morty season 4 final episodes and brand-new animated series, created by Emmy-winning animator JJ Villard (King Star King) and set to premiere May 10 at 12:15 a.m. (Sunday night leading into Monday).
Synopsis: JJ Villard’s Fairy Tales is a new, twisted, fun take on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tales like Cinderella and Snow White. The charm and cuteness of the original stories remain, but now they’ve been updated and packaged into a ball of raw, visceral, gross weirdness. The animated quarter-hour series is created and executive produced by JJ Villard and produced by Cartoon Network Studios. Voice talent this season includes Linda Blair, Warwick Davis, Robert Englund, Corey Feldman, Alan Oppenheimer, Jennifer Tilly and Villard himself, among others.
