The Regular Show

regular-show-cartoon-network-01

‘Regular Show’ is an American animated television series created by J. G. Quintel (formerly a creative director for ‘The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack’). The series was originally developed as a short for Cartoon Network's short-lived ‘Cartoonstitute’ project, and features characters loosely based on those from Quintel's student films ‘The Naïve Man From Lolliland’ and ‘2 In The AM PM’. It was greenlit for its own series on August 13, 2009 by Cartoon Network and debuted on September 6, 2010 in America. ‘Regular Show’ debuts on UK television next week, I know I’ll be watching.

The plot: Two 23 year old friends, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby, work as groundskeepers at a park and spend their days trying to entertain themselves by any means, much to the chagrin of Benson, a high-tempered gumball machine, and Skips, a yeti, but to the delight of Pops, a naïve English gentleman with a lollipop-shaped head. Muscle Man, an overweight and green man, and High-Five Ghost, a ghost with a hand extending from the top of his head, are both neutral about Rigby and Mordecai's shenanigans. The episodes usually revolve around the two's personal life such as obtaining concert tickets, getting food, or making up for a mess they have caused, often leading to highly surreal and unusual events.

Sounds pretty weird doesn’t it? Should be good.
