Greenlit back in August, the new Cartoon Network series Horrorbots has finally started production early this month. The series follows two friends, Thrasher and Blastus, who must face their most difficult challenge yet: high school. But there's a catch, for you see, they are robots living on a planet inhabited solely by robots. Less horrific then their mechanical brethen, these two misfits set out on a quest to fit in. Created by Micheal Buckley (author of The Sisters Grimm) and produced at New York's World Leaders Entertainment (known for [adult swim]'s The Venture Bros.)
Regular Show Is Moving Along
Also an August greenlight, Regular Show may be the only series animation fans may see come out of the Cartoon Network's defunct Cartoonstitute project. Anything but average, the show features two groundskeepers, Mordecai (a blue jay) and Rigby (a raccoon) who do pretty much anything to keep themselves entertained. However, even something as mundane as a game of rock-paper-scissors can take a turn for the surreal and chaotic. Created by J.G. Quintel (creative director of The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack) and produced at Cartoon Network Studios.
Nickelodeon's newest animated series, the squash-and-strech CGI cartoon Fanboy and Chum Chum, is set for a November 7th premiere date.
