Cartoon Network and its older sister Adult Swim have lined up some fun, fresh surprises for stuck-at-home animation fans this month.
Younger viewers (and others) can soar into Memorial Day with a special half-hour episode of Teen Titans Go!, premiering Monday, May 25 at 6 p.m ET/PT. In “Justice League’s Next Top Talent Idol Star: Justice League Edition,” the Justice League holds yet another talent competition, only this time they’re facing off against the Titans. In order to be the most talented superhero team in the DC universe, Robin and Beast Boy must work together … on a jazz performance.
CN is also delivering new episodes of hit series Craig of the Creek, Victor and Valentino (including a half-hour special May 23), ThunderCats Roar! and more throughout the month of May. Scroll down for details on these premieres.
Big kids will be strapping into their Clockwork Orange screen-watching restraints to not miss a second of the Rick and Morty Season 4, Part 2 premiere this Sunday, May 3 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT. The Emmy-winning half-hour animated hit comedy series on Adult Swim follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe. Rick Sanchez is living with his daughter Beth’s family and constantly bringing her, his son-in-law Jerry, granddaughter Summer, and grandson Morty into intergalactic escapades.
