    ***NEW EPISODES***



    ADVENTURE TIME (TV-PG)
    Mondays at 7:30 p.m. (ET, PT)

    Adventure Time, Cartoon Network’s hit animated comedy series returns with its fourth season on Monday, April 2, at 7:30 p.m. (ET, PT). The original animated series, introduces viewers to unlikely heroes Finn & Jake, buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants. The best of friends, our heroes always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades. Finn, a silly kid with an awesome hat and Jake, a brassy dog with a big kind heart, depend on each other through thick and thin. From the mind of creator Pendleton Ward, Ooo is a land built for adventure. Teeming with imposing mountains, lush green plains, accessible forests, ubiquitous prairies and winding rivers, the cities and towns are filled with bizarre characters in need of unique assistance. Whether it’s saving Princess Bubblegum, defeating zombie candy, mocking the “oxy-moronic” Ice King, or rocking out with undead music wiz Marceline the Vampire Queen, for Finn & Jake it’s always Adventure Time.

    -Monday, April 2: “Hot to the Touch” – Finn goes on a quest to prove Flame Princess isn’t really evil.
    -Monday, April 9: “Five Short Graybles” – A series of short stories all centered around the five senses, hosted by Pen Ward himself.
    -Monday, April 16: “Web Weirdos” – When Finn gets trapped in a giant spider web, he ends up playing marriage counselor to a couple of grumpy arachnids.
    -Monday, April 23: “Dream of Love”– Tree Trunks is courted by an oinking suitor, but much to Jake’s dismay, this interferes with her baking habits.
    -Monday, April 30: “They Went to the Nightosphere - Pt. 1” – Marceline’s dad banishes Finn and Jake to the Nightosphere, and it stinks. Literally.

    REGULAR SHOW (TV-PG)
    Mondays at 8:00 p.m. (ET, PT)

    The hit original animated comedy from Cartoon Network, Regular Show features best friends Mordecai (a six-foot-tall blue jay) and Rigby (a hyperactive raccoon). The two are groundskeepers at a park owned by Pops, a humanoid-looking lollipop who has spent his entire life there. The job is so deadly dull that the two friends will do anything they can to avoid it. This doesn’t go over well with their boss Benson (an anthropomorphic gumball machine)—but their efforts often result in insane escapades that delight Pops.

    -Monday, April 2: “Big Winner” – Mordecai and Rigby have to tell Muscle Man that the million dollar scratcher ticket they gave him for his birthday is a fake without getting killed for it.
    -Monday, April 9: “The Best Burger in the World” – Mordecai and Rigby try to outfox Benson using holograms so that they can eat the best burgers in the world.

    -Monday, April 30: “Trash Boat”– Rigby changes his name and has to change it back when he realizes that he picked the stupidest name ever… “Trash Boat.”

    MAD (TV-PG)
    Mondays at 8:30 p.m. (ET, PT)

    From the very first issue of the magazine in 1952, MAD has satirized and parodied the pop cultural landscape. Its irreverent heart still beats strong. In this new MAD original animated series, this same sense of the ridiculous is delivered with fresh relevance. The show is the magazine brought to animated life, from spoof mash-ups like CSiCarly to Avaturds to The Fantastic Megan Fox to commercial parodies like Toys4Brats.

    LEVEL UP (TV-PG-V)
    Tuesdays at 8 p.m. (ET, PT)

    Level Up is a hilarious new half-hour comedy series that turns the game on the player when four unlikely friends – Wyatt, Dante, Lyle and Angie – accidentally open a portal from the virtual world to the real world, wreaking havoc on their entire neighborhood. The boys are top gamers in their favorite online game Conqueror of All Worlds. They’ve defeated trolls, squashed barbarians, annihilated ghouls and trashed everything else the game can throw at them. But it’s a whole new experience battling their online foes IRL (in real life)! Now these typical teens must “level up” in order to deal with high school life while protecting their town. And all without a cheat code! Max Ross is the multi-millionaire genius and eccentric game creator who helps the kids out on their real world quests.

    -Tuesday, April 3: “Blast-a-ton” – Wyatt gets a new weapon but there are unforeseen side effects which threaten the unity of the clan.
    -Tuesday, April 10: “The Charm Bracelet” – The boys decide to use a piece of magical loot from the game to help Angie win the Class President election.

    -Tuesday, April 24: “Headquarters” – Max allows the boys to use his warehouse as their headquarters. When they decide to throw a party there they are threatened by a game leak.

    JOHNNY TEST (TV-Y7-FV)
    Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. (ET, PT)

    Johnny Test chronicles the adventures of a fearless 11-year-old boy, his genetically engineered super dog, Dukey, and his 13-year-old super genius brainiac twin sisters who use Johnny as their guinea pig for their out-of-this-world scientific experiments. Johnny is the ultimate test pilot where no mission is too unbelievable, no challenge is too great, no villain is too menacing and no sister-created concoction is too wild.

    -Wednesday, April 4: “Johnny O’s” – Johnny's tired of the lame toys found in cereal boxes, so he launches his own "Johnny Os" with a real alien blaster found in each box. Porkbelly is now protected against space invaders, but who will save the town from it's citizens?
    -Wednesday, April 11: “It’s Du-Kay, Johnny” – Dukey's starting to behave too much like a regular dog, so Mary and Susan decide it's time for a DNA upgrade, but it turns him into sophiscated Du-kay, who would rather spend time at the country club then hang out with Johnny.

    NINJAGO (TV-Y7-FV)
    Wednesdays at 8 p.m. (ET, PT)

    After a time of peace in Ninjago, our four Ninja heroes are about to face a new dangerous enemy. Lloyd Garmadon, son of their archenemy Lord Garmadon, has unleashed a new evil with unique powers. Soon his ambition to follow in his father¹s footsteps has put all of Ninjago in jeopardy.

    THUNDERCATS (TV-PG-V)

    The new Regular Show and Adventure Time episodes sound awesome. I wonder if "Five Short Graybles" will show Pen Ward animated or live-action. Also, the two-parter at the end of April sounds cool. I'm also looking forward to the "Replaced" episode of Regular Show.

    Well what do you know! A Tygra episode and a Thunderkittens episode. Nice to see the other team members finally getting some focus.

    Bringing Pumyra in this early? That settles it. Season 2 is going to feature the Lunataks for sure.

    It will probably be back for premieres in May with Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated but only time will tell.

    Not wanting to get buried admist the April Fools' thread, but noticed Looney Tunes' classic weekday airings have been removed from the noon/11 AM CT airings, replaced by two back-to-back Looney Tunes Show episodes starting at 12:30 PM ET/11:30 AM CT. The original shorts still have their early-morning airings, however.

    Glad to see TLTS is a hit for CN, but hate to see the classic shorts get yanked... though since Tom and Jerry's also been pulled, maybe it's temporary? :-/

    It's a temporary change lasting two weeks because of spring break. The schedule will be back to how it was before starting April 16th.
