Breakfast Cheese Teen Titans Go Clip
Warner Bros. Animation

Between all of their brawls -- both with criminals and each other -- the cast of Teen Titans Go! channels more than their collective share of aggression. On tonight's new "Breakfast Cheese" episode on Cartoon Network, Starfire sees how it's affecting her friends and suggests a (perhaps) better alternative. After all, what does violence solve? Furthermore, what does cheese have to do with it? Fans will be able to see if the heroine's proposed lives of peace and nonviolence stick tonight, but in the meantime, you can catch our clip from the latest episode of TTG! after the jump.

The Powerpuff Girls Go C.G.I. In New Cartoon Network Special [Video]

Powerpuff Girls Special

Last week Cartoon Network revealed plans to air a brand new Powerpuff Girls special in January. The special, titled "Powerpuff Girls: Dance Pantsed," in no way involves series creator Craig McCracken. As such, it features a completely reimagined look for Townsville's heroes, as the Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup get the CG treatment. While the show has a different look, it does reunite the original voice cast, and along for the ride this time is Ringo Starr, debuting a brand new song and giving voice to the "flamboyant mathemetician Fibonacci Sequins," a character with one of the best names I've come across in any show in years.

Cartoon Network has now released a commercial for the upcoming special, debuting the first footage we've seen, and you can check it out below.

Fan Celebrates ‘The Powerpuff Girls’ 15th Birthday With Reimagined Opening Sequence [Video]

It's a big month for anniversaries. Doctor Who has turned 50. Mystery Science Theater 3000 is 25. One anniversary that doesn't seem to be getting as much attention is the one that might make all of us feel the oldest. The Powerpuff Girls have officially been around for 15 years, debuting on Cartoon Network on November 18, 1998. If fans count creator Craig McCracken's original "Whoopass Girls" concept that he created while in college at CalArts and debuted in 1992 as "Whoopass Stew!," though, the team is old enough to drink.

‘Mad’ Producer Kevin Shinick Celebrates 100 Episodes of the Animated Series [Interview]

Untitled-1

It's hard to work out how Robot Chicken creative director and increasingly busy comic book writer Kevin Shinick found the time to complete 100 episodes of Mad for Warner Bros. Animation, but he did it, and it's an accomplishment he and the studio are celebrating with a double-sized anniversary show tonight on Cartoon Network. Perhaps most enticingly for ComicsAlliance readers, the episode's centerpiece is what's surely to be a biting Man of Steel parody starring "Weird Al" Yankovic as Superman and Henry Winkler as Jor-El.

Devised and written by (and usually starring) Shinick, the Mad cartoon is, in his words, the magazine brought to life in animation. It's a bold statement but honestly Shinick isn't wrong. Besides just being very funny, Mad translates the venerable humor magazine's signature irreverence, silliness and other naughtiness for television, segueing from one sketch to another with animated page tears and everything. The series actually employs some of the cartoonists who continue to define the voice of Mad, including Sergio Aragonés, who contributes all-new in-the-margins strips that find their way into every episode, as do topical film and television parodies, fake commercials and, of course, Spy vs. Spy. In every case, sketches are presented in visual styles reminiscent of Mad masters like Don Martin, Mort Drucker and Al Jaffee, and by way of different animation techniques such as Flash, stop-motion and puppets, to further honor the stylistic diversity of the magazine. But the series updates the magazine's scope for the extremely memetic world of today, going all-in on mashups (the ThunderLOLcats comes immediately to mind) and other highly bloggable jokes.

That any contemporary animated series makes it to 100 episodes is remarkable, but Mad has the additional distinction of being explicitly based on a comics magazine -- and with the help of that comics magazine's current contributors like Aragones and Tom Richmond -- makes the Emmy-nominated series that much more interesting. It's obvious from talking to Shinick (who's also writing Superior Carnage for Marvel) that the mantle of Mad is hugely important to him. In the following interview you'll find out why that is, as well as an inside look at Mad's impressive production workflow, Shinick's philosophy about comedic content for children, and what else to expect from tonight's 100th episode.
