    This one has been hinted at repeatedly and confirmation finally comes today.

    The pilot didn't exactly wow me, the art style doesn't look too appealing, and it does seem a little too much like Regular Show for its own good, but I think there could be a decent charm to this. Really depends on which direction they choose to take it.

    I feel the same way @Toon4Thought feels about this. I think this show will ultimately be mediocre, but it may surprise me.

    The pilot was decent. It wasn't on my list of pilots I was hoping would be picked up, but I'll still check it out. It's not unusual for full shows to turn out better than their original pilots, so it could turn out fine.

    I loved the pilot and I really hope Richard Ayoade returns as Onion, he's my favourite comedian.

    I really didn't think this one would get picked up, it just seemed a little to dry for kids. I enjoyed the pilot even if I really don't like character design for the main two.

    I kinda feel like this show is going to fall under the nadir as this it'll probably the less popular one, to me honestly, I personally find it too passive and dull, although it could change to make it more appealing than what the pilot had presented.

    I thought it was ok. I always try to remember that a pilot is just a pilot and the series could always look better. Take Steven Universe for example.

    Except that for SU, it took a few episodes until the season finale, where it became more favorable than what it did at first.

    Meh, I'll pass. The pilot seemed too much like derivative of Regular Show, which I didn't care much for. This seems more like a show for adults than for kids.

    Not one of the pilots I fell in love with, but I didn't hate it either.
    I'll give it a shot when it comes out for nothing else than CN desperately needs series to latch onto.

    I'm not too terribly interested in this one - Unlike Regular Show, Gumball, or (eventually) Mighty Magiswords for me, this doesn't look like it's going to be any better than that crappy pilot showed me in any way, sadly. This looks like another scenario will everyone will warm up to it like PPG (2016) or something - I'll likely be watching other, more preferable (IMHO) stuff in the meantime.

    I am quite surprised at this announcement for two reasons:

    1. It's only two and a half weeks in advance.

    2. Craig of the Creek was promoted a lot more recently, suggesting that would premiere sooner.

    The fact that they just announced this two and a half weeks ahead of broadcast with no on-air promotion as of now is quite worrisome.

    At least we know this isn't all they will have this year - far from it, in fact.

    Also, I've heard the creator is very difficult to work with, not unlike John K. So production issues may be why they're hesitant to really push this, just in case something ends up going wrong.

    Oh boy. This bit of information makes me even more doubtful about the show's fate in the future. Let's see if it does well enough.

    The fact that a new show is showing up in less than a month with no promotion is a bit disturbing to me.

    Like I said before, the pilot didn’t exactly interest me but I might watch an episode or two just to say I did.

    Just saw the sneak peek. I'm still not very keen on the art style, and the premise doesn't sound too appealing (ha ha, pun), but I can easily see it becoming a spiritual successor to Regular Show, which would likely win me over. The writing already feels very similar to RS in tone, which is a decently good sign.

    Also, the theme song is strangely mesmerizing, and I don't know why.

    However I saw the sneak peek but I’m unsure whether I find it appealing or even that interesting despite of its odd art style
