What shows, be it live action, puppetry, or animated, do you wish Adult Swim would pick up?  I would like to see AS pick up Greg the Bunny and The PJ's.  Anyone else?

I'm happy with it being on comedy central, but Drawn Together would be nice to see a little more often.

Wholeheartedly agree with Invader Zim, although I wouldnt mind seeing some old cartoons like The Tick, Rocko's Modern Life, and Ren and Stimpy on there...

Other old Nick cartoons would be good, but that's why my Comcast Digital Cable comes with Nicktoons network. I can watch them any day. Plus, I bought the Invader Zim DVDs, but I love watching them on TV, much like Futurama on TV rather than just a DVD.

I'd also love seeing Rocko's Modern Life again.  More Nicktoons come to mind, but I don't see any of them really fitting into the [as] lineup.

I would love to see them pick up Clone High and give it a few more seasons, but it isn't going to happen.

The only things that I really wish [Adult Swim] would show are shows that they used to show, but don't anymore, like Outlaw Star and Tenchi Muyo!

Toon Disney shows The Tick.  All of the Nickelodeon shows mentioned are shown on the NickToons Network about fifty times a day.

Yes, David, but some of these destitute peasants apparently can't afford digital cable.

Arrested Development. Okay, so it's not a cartoon, but it's smart, Fox totally screwed it over (like with a few of the AS shows) the humour fits in with a lot of shows on Adult Swim, and Cartoon Network have shown support for it before.

Well, they're not going to put those shows on Cartoon Network while they're being shown on other networks, whether you can afford digital cable or not.

Also, I'm pretty sure that no Nicktoon will ever be shown on Cartoon Network ever.

I want to know what has happened with Harvey Birdman. That is my favorite show and where is it? I want the DVDs so badly.

Also Clone High and The Tick. They had Saved By The Bell on, why the hell not Arrested Development?

I can't think of anything original. LOL. But I'm glad I'm not alone.

Dude, you do realize that when they showed Saved by the Bell that was a joke, right?

Live action shows don't belong on Cartoon Network.

A joke? Are you sure?

I didn't watch the episodes when they aired on [Adult Swim].

Plus Cartoon Network has started showing live action movies.

I think they're going to start showing Pee-wee Herman on there or something.

Also, you people need to get Nicktoon on your cable.

Yeah, but Pee-wee's like a live-action cartoon character.

Heck, Toon Disney shows Power Rangers.  I guess some live-action shows make sense on Cartoon Network.

You should really talk to your cable provider about that.  You shouldn't have to pay full price for a channel that isn't coming in clearly.

Were these two things supposed to be together?

What would Invader Zim have to change? I think it's already perfect.

P.S. What's the name of that show that's going to be on [AS], the one about the Heavy Metal Band?

Adult Swim should cancel all of their original shows except for Robot Chicken and just play that for four hours in a row.

Nah, I like The Venture Brothers, Sealab 2021, Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Harvey Birdman way more than Robot Chicken.

I say have a two hour block of said shows, and call it A "Classic Adult Swim Block", or something.

Sealab is the worst fucking show ever to air on television. Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Harvey Birdman are unwatchable.

Unwatchable to some, watchable to others. I'll bend for ATHF cause I haven't watched it before but Birdman is my show. Robot Chick kind of creeps me out cause of stop-animation but I like all the pop culture stuff.

Wouldn't "Classic Adult Swim" be all anime, since that's what Adult Swim used to be?  I guess that they already have that on Saturdays.

You know. The more you talk, the more I hate you.

Anyone remember This Just In? Or whatever it was called. It was a short lived show on Spike TV. Is it just me, or does it seem like none of their animation shows last? Gary the Rat, Stripperella, This Just In and Ren & Stimpy 'Adult Party Cartoon'. Hopefully Howard Stern: The High School Years does better. I just found out, that Michael Cera (George Michael on Arrested Development) will be playing Howard Stern.

If you're asking why I did this. ^^^

There is no reason, other than it's 1:40am and I'm bored. And I can't sleep.

Also, is Happy Tree Friends & Friends an actual show?
