GameTap Gets More Animated With Computer Lab & CN Cartoon Series

GameTap, the first-of-its-kind broadband entertainment network from Turner Broadcasting System Inc. (TBS), has added content for its animation channel, featuring an original series entitled, "Computer Lab," and select animation content from the Cartoon Network and the Anime Channel. COMPUTER LAB is the 12th original series to debut only on GameTap.

COMPUTER LAB chronicles the lives of the denizens of an all-night computer lab at the University of State College. Havoc usually happens when Bun, Turbo and Jill have too much time on their hands and too little supervision from the boss. The comical series of animated COMPUTER LAB video shorts is produced by GameTap and Soup2Nuts, the creators of Adult Swim's HOME MOVIES.

Additionally, GameTap is offering selected Cartoon Network programs to subscribers via GameTap TV, including:

* JOHNNY BRAVO* THE GRIM ADVENTURES OF BILLY AND MANDY* DEXTER'S LABORATORY* EVIL CON CARNE* COURAGE THE COWARDLY DOG* THE POWERPUFF GIRLS* ED, EDD N EDDY* FOSTER'S HOME FOR IMAGINARY FRIENDS* CODENAME: KIDS NEXT DOOR* HI HI PUFFY AMIYUMI* CAMP LAZLO* MY GYM PARTNER'S A MONKEY

The Anime Network's critically-acclaimed anime series, MEZZO, is available on GameTap TV.

"There is a huge amount of crossover between people who play games and cartoon fans so our decision to add COMPUTER LAB, Cartoon Network and anime programming to our Animation channel made sense given the direction we see broadband entertainment headed," said Ricardo Sanchez, vp of content for GameTap. "GameTap TV is the leader in delivering short form original programming over broadband and the addition of COMPUTER LAB strengthens what is already a very compelling lineup of shows."
