An original animated comedy series from creator Quintel and Cartoon Network Studios, Regular Show features best friends Mordecai (a six-foot-tall blue jay) and Rigby (a hyperactive raccoon). The two are groundskeepers at a park owned by Pops, a humanoid-looking lollipop who has spent his entire life there. The job is so deadly dull that the two friends will do anything they can to avoid it. This doesn’t go over well with their boss Benson (an anthropomorphic gumball machine) — but their efforts often result in insane escapades that delight Pops. The series recently won a 2012 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Short-format Animated Program as well as a 2012 Ottawa Intl. Animation Festival Best Television Animation Made for Children. In addition, the series was nominated for a BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Award for Best Television Series (Kids).

Additionally, the Regular Show consumer products program continues to grow and create excitement for fans everywhere, led by a master toy line from Jazwares currently available exclusively at Toys”R”Us retailers nationwide, as well as a full line of apparel and accessories for both kids and adults.
