    On Friday November 15th, KLIK Festival in Amsterdam (the Netherlands) is going to air a show called CARTOON NETWORK: NEXT GENERATION:

    They won't air any failed pilots like Mars Safari, so I was wondering if Tome of the Unknown will also get its own series?

    The short's already aired on other festivals in September like LA Shorts fest and Ottawa, so is there anyone on ToonZone who has seen it? Here's a synopsis:

    The story looks very interesting and the animation looks pretty good. You can find some art of it right here. And it also has its own Wikia.

    Never heard of this show. It looks interesting, but I'm gonna need more info because right now, I can't make much of it other than it looks mystical and the big brother looks like a tall gnome.

    Weird how the "about Patrick McHale" talks about how he died and then says that he's still alive.

    I remember from around the time when all the pilots of the shows like Clarence & Lakewood Plaza Turbo was leaked. It's piqued my interest so far. The shading is nice & gives a bit of a different feel from other cartoons, & I like that Elijah Wood is the voice of Wirt.

    If the show has been given the greenlight, then I guess it will premiere next fall on CN.

    A linkedin profile currently has somebody working on a mini-series for this. It will get more than one episode.

    "Tone of the Unknown"? Wow. I wish I was in Amsterdam just to see this. I'm instantly in love with the art style.

    You misspelled it. It's Tome.
