    If it's fake, why have they been teasing it for months?

    Fake in what regard? Weird for you perhaps...

    Maybe they're setting up their next April Fool's Day joke months in advance? It's the only plausible explanation I've got.

    What you have seen is probably a new Cartoonito feed, but AS Jr. has nothing to do with it.

    I don't think someone who is likely European could have access to Turner's private headquarters, maybe some local Turner office, but definitely not their private US headquarters.

    There are two possibilities:
    A) You have a family member or friend working at Turner in Atlanta.
    B) You have access to some Turner-owned password protected website.

    Please keep in mind that the data you may have leaked may be sensitive and Toonzone could get in legal trouble.

    There's MUCH more than just two possibilities, which you have not considered.

    I sent a message to Checkerboard, he/she apparently has access to Turner's CEE/US data, we can therefore exclude a confusion with Cartoonito.


    I would have been interested to know something about recent animated acquisitions by Turner/Boing following this news, but unfortunately he/she does not have access to Turner Italy data, I'm afraid we should wait until an announcement by Mediaset.

    Thanks to ViewDNS, I happened to find this strange and long domain name talking about an important announcement:
    https://averyimportantannouncement.com

    It was registered on December 1, 2017 by Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. and currently leads nowhere.

    Could it be related to Adult Swim Jr.?

    It's the other way around.

    Fun fact: when I was little, I thought that Tex Avery was pronounced "Tex A Very".

    Why does everything have to do with Adult Swim Jr.?

    if the launch date was that soon, I think we would have heard something more about it and people wouldn't be debating whether or not Adult Swim Jr. is real.

    Who knows. Maybe it will be revealed on April Fool's Day. Kind of like G:KND except that it was supposedly a hoax, but regarding this? We'll have to wait and see.

    Ugh, there's an entire thread dedicated to this hoax? Listen:
    [adult swim] Jr. might just be an April Fools Prank and nothing more.
    It's gonna take more than a teaser promo to get me hyped for this supposed block. When was the last time [as] teased a big event and turned out to be a hoax? This will happen with [as] Jr. as well, as it's nothing more than one of their April Fools Stunts. I don't know how they'll top last year's Rick and Morty incident but I doubt [adult swim] Jr. will ever come close to the sheer genius of that April Fools prank. Oh yeah and they added Seinfeld music cues on Bob's Burgers and added a laugh track and and changed Carl's voice into a robot but who cares? All I care is seeing the look on your faces when you find out I was right about [adult swim] Jr. being an April Fools' Prank.

    @superkeegan9100 might be right. It might even be an entire joke that has been planned for months.
