In May, Bloo, from FOSTER'S HOME FOR IMAGINARY FRIENDS, sends a message to deep space and ends up letting aliens loose on Earth and in Cartoon Network original series ED, EDD N EDDY, MY GYM PARTNER'S A MONKEY, CAMP LAZLO and THE GRIM ADVENTURES OF BILLY & MANDY. Alien-themed episodes will air throughout the month, beginning May 4, 2007, at 7:00 pm, culminating with an out-of-this-world alien invasion marathon on Memorial Day.
Mischievous alien warlords invade Cartoon Network in search of the one element they need to rebuild their galactic world -- cheese. The hapless aliens take over the entire network in May on their way to universal domination. Following is the schedule for the invasion.
May 4, at 7:00 pm: FOSTER'S HOME FOR IMAGINARY FRIENDS: "Cheese A Go-Go" -- After seeing an alien movie and reading a tabloid about an alien who somewhat resembles Cheese, Bloo becomes convinced that Cheese is a brainsucking alien.

May 18, at 7:00 pm: MY GYM PARTNER'S A MONKEY: "That Darn Platypus" -- A duck-billed platypus named Rick is a new student at Charles Darwin Elementary. Everyone but Adam is convinced he is a brain-juice sucking alien from outer space since he doesn't look like any animal they've ever seen.
May 25, at 7:00 pm: CAMP LAZLO: "Strange Trout from Outer Space" -- Three aliens abduct Samson and make his life even more miserable than it already is. "Cheese Orbs" -- Three aliens hang out at the Squirrel Scout Camp and come between best friends Patsy and Nina.
