    "Pack your bags! Summer Camp Island begins July 7 on Cartoon Network.

    It's official, you're coming to Summer Camp Island! Created by Julia Pott, the show follows best friends Oscar and Hedgehog at an incredible, magical sleepaway camp where things aren't quite what they seem to be. For the first time ever, the series will take over Cartoon Network and Boomerang with all 20 episodes debuting back-to-back. Beginning Saturday, July 7 at 6 a.m. (ET/PT) through Sunday, July 8, all episodes will go into rotation for 48 hours in this can't-miss double network takeover event.

    And while you watch the event, you can bring the magic into your own home with the new Summer Camp Island AR app. Use the Camp Guide to explore the island, play with the campers, or make your own surroundings come to life and talk.

    See you soon at Summer Camp Island!"

    Uhhhhh...... thoughts?

    It sounds like an overkill if you ask me. That’s five hours worth of new stuff.

    Yeah this whole premiere method is a bad idea. But I guess it makes sense to release all of the episodes and then binge them all online instead.

    Hmm, this is an odd tactic. I don't really think this is a burn off, considering the promotion the show is getting recently. Feels more like a weird experiment. I suppose they really want those reruns ready.

    Nah, if it was burn off, it'd only be one airing per episode.

    I kind of disagree, since it seems they now want the live feed to compliment the app and not the other way around, given how they've aired new episodes throughout this year. I get where you're coming from with that, but this is definitely an experiment for them to go more all out with a Netflix-type release schedule.

    48 Hours Rotation!? Is that just Boomerang or will Cartoon Network preempt Adult Swim?

    Looks like CN is still trying to experiment with its newer programming, this one seems to be a really excessive move, that many airings of a brand new show is a lot to though out in that much time.

    I don't know if airing on Boomerang is a good idea. Reminds me of Disney and Nick's simulcasts.

    It seems to be their way of making sure people can catch it at any given time. It's pretty much the every hour strategy turned up to eleven (or in this case, twenty).

    This'll be the first time Adult Swim's been preempted since June Bugs (if they're indeed preempting it).

    Well, that’s certainly different. I guess with rating plummeting across TV, they’re willing to experiment more. But to preempt Adult Swim, wow.

    I guess dropping the whole season(?) at once is just their attempts to imitate Netflix. If this does well, it’ll be cool to see if they do this with other shows, like Steven Universe.

    It would be heaven if they do that with Steven Universe.

    Makes me quite optimistic and nostalgic. I like it. Hope it works out in CN's favor!

    Honestly, I can easily see them doing this with Steven, as it seems like a pretty ideal show to take on this route.

    Even though the Netflix model has its drawbacks, I'd take this over a ridiculously inconsistent release schedule.
