    Over the Garden Wall sounds like a follow-up to Dreamworks' Over the Hedge.

    According to Nick Cross' LinkedIn account, Patrick McHale's Tomb of the Unknown is a miniseries, and Cross is the Art Director.

    Has Cartoon Network ever funded a mini series like Tome of the Unknown before? The only short cartoon series CN has made before were canceled after 1 season (*cough*Robotomy*cough*). I can't wait to see what Tome of the Unknown turns out to be, but the sneak peak we got before already has me in anticipation. Color me excited if CN decides to start making more mini series in the future.

    Well, Turner Broadcasting's Upfronts are on May 14th, so this will more than likely include Cartoon Network, which is much later than usual.

    Well, more of my predictions for the Upfronts:

    - Something about Tome of the Unknown
    - New Warner Bros. Animation series not already announced
    - New Cartoon Network Studios series not already announced (Smashkins, Over the Garden Wall, though that could be Adult Swim)
    - DC Nation series
    - Acquistions
    - Online content
    - More pilots from Cartoon Network Studios

    How would you guys feel about a reimagining of the CN classics annually? This year was PPG, next year could be Dexter, Johnny Bravo, etc.

    After seeing the post-cancellation Dexters, the last season of Johnny Bravo and the PPG specials, I'd prefer they leave well enough alone from now on. Heck, PPG stopped being good before it ended. I really wish people would stop wishing for the past to be revived and instead look ahead to the future. Old Cartoon Network was lightning in a bottle; it's never coming back, and it can never be re-created.

    All of those seem like a leap, especially Mike, Lu & Og. That show basically failed to attract an audience or a long-term fan following on CN, so it seems unlikely that anyone at CN would be keen on reviving it. Danny Antonnucci has moved on from Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy to pursue other projects, so any new Ed project would likely have to be done without his involvement, and I don't think anybody would want to see that.

    Well, with Stu Snyder leaving at the end of the month:

    DC Nation gets some respect, and new eps for Beware the Batman are finally ordered.
    Adult Swim @ 8 (ET) will be pro tempore.
    A decision is made to move the Hall of Game Awards to TNT in 2015.

    That's a nice thought, but the downside is that TNT is no longer the general entertainment channel that it used to be. Originally, TNT aired cartoons, kid friendly movies and Muppet shows during the day, but now, it's all about adult drama. Unless TNT launches a kid vid block, I don't see this happening. TBS would seem a tad more likely to air the Hall of Game Awards than TNT, but they likewise don't air kids' shows anymore.

    One wonders what the ratings are for Hall of Game. IMPO, it was created as CN's answer to Nick's Kids' Choice Awards, but it's strictly lame-o.

    The ratings were for Hall of Game 2014 were posted some time ago. It got 1.449 mil. Spiderman, Dragons, Teen Titans GO, and Uncle Grandpa beat it. CN Ratings Thread: Part 15

    What's funny though, is that Nickelodeon is now making another awards show... KCA: Sports Edition. XD

    I don't think Turner is really that concerned with ratings when it comes to HoG; the whole thing is really more or less a PR stunt. HoG is a tie-in to the First Lady's 'Get Active' fight against children's obesity campaign, and a way for CN to show the parents at home that they're a caring company that's concerned about the kiddos at home. The show itself is more or less CN's equivalent to Nick's Worldwide Day of Play; basically dead air that they can run for 2 hours while looking good to the press, and plug some of their wares while they're at it.

    I never thought of it that way before, Silverstar. You have a really valid point, considering the First Lady was a guest on the very first Hall of Game.

    Spoiler:
    OT: Now I'm wondering if that makes Nick's sports awards show a second "world wide day of play".

    I got more:
    - Mixles get a tv series spun off from the shorts
    - Cartoon Planet randomly ads more non-CN owned shows
    - Numb Chucks and any other upcoming Canadian acquirements get deadslotted
    - Squirrel Boy might randomly return in reruns, but deadslotted like it was in 2009
    - CN advertise the new Tom and Jerry show
    - Christmas With the Kranks, Deck the Halls, Disney's The Wild, The Country Bears, Elf, The Benchwarmers, Taxi, Baby Geniuses and/or Get Smart airs on The Flicks
    , , ,
    Don't mess with the Best

    Since the upfront for this year has already been revealed, we don't really need a prediction thread anymore. I'll go ahead and close it.
