    A OK KO crossover with Swat Kats would be perfect for multiple reasons and has to happen. One, both shows are about heroes and villains. Two, there's a lot to choose from in Swat Kats to make it work in the world of OK KO!. Three, the animation style is quite similar if you look at S2 of Swat Kats in particular - especially in motion. Four, there's room for good humor - Swat Kats are a Radical Squadron and OK KO! features Rad. Five, the creators of Swat Kats are working on a reboot. Being featured on OK KO! would help them get picked up. Six, OK KO! already crossed over with another classic HB property (Captain Planet) and it turned out great. Going to get this over to Tremblays, IJQ and CN asap and I'd recommend you bug them about this too if you want it to happen.

    Last time I checked the rights to Swat Kats were with the Trembleys, who were running that Kickstarter. That doesn't mean them appearing on OK KO is impossible, it's just that they can't be swapped in like the shows that CN owns outright.

    True, the rights reverted back to them, but what other property you can imagine OK KO having a crossover with? PPG? TTG!? Mega Man? Those are the only three current shows I can think of that make at least remote sense. And then you have the classics from which only Swat Kats is plausable.

    Well no one whether OK KO will get another crossover following after Captain Planet, I think we need to focus on crossovers for other shows rather than just OK KO period, shows like WBB or Mighty Magiswords is recommended.

    Seeing how the crewmembers of Mighty Magiswords are fans of Steven Universe (and even had some of their actresses appear on the show) I would like a crossover.

    Turner still owns the rights to the old series. Any new material produced belongs to the Tremblays.

    Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if there's an OK KO TTG crossover (especially considering how some OK KO crew members used to work on TTG) and I also wouldn't be surprised if said crossover turned out to be good (especially if it's done by the OK KO crew)

    I'm pretty sure it's the U.S. That user's profile says they're from Ohio.

    What's up with the endboard graphics though? They seem kinda different or new.

    Does this mean that rebrand is coming? Graphics are different.

    I also would like to assume that its a typo. Maybe they're just airing a special new episode that night because the 19th is President's Day (Maybe the TTG "Opposite Titans" special will premiere right before it). But if anything else, I feel like the show would still be part of NEW NEW NEW NEW on Friday nights for future premieres since they have room for one more show right now in that two hour block.

    I think that's exactly what's going to happen, actually.

    Oh, then I guess maybe Monday is the new night for OK K.O. I think this is the first time Monday night has been a night for regular premieres since May 2014. That's the last time I remember a show regularly airing on that night (Adventure Time & Regular Show specifically), since the shows moved to Thursdays later on in June 2014.

    Also, I found out the 19th has the episodes "Let's Watch the Pilot" (only new to TV) and "Mystery Science Fair 201X" (I believe this one is new everywhere), at 6:45-7:15. Because I guess round numbers would've been too much.

    Come back soon, K.O. - I miss you! But it is only the next month, so it won't be a long wait.

    I think it's either A) CN can't squeeze ALL of their shows on Fridays, or B) CN is trying to avoid direct competition with Nickelodeon.
