Airs Mondays to Fridays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT
In this spoof of 1960s cartoons such as Jonny Quest and boys' adventure novels like the "Tom Swift" and "Hardy Boys" series, the Venture brothers – Hank and Dean – travel around the world with their renowned scientist father, Doctor Venture. Fraternal twins Hank and Dean are total idiots who think, act and talk like they're in the '60s, even though they're 21st-century teenagers. Doc Venture, who really can't stand his dimwitted sons, pops "diet pills" like candy. Doc reeks of failure and unrealized potential, but he hopes his new invention will bring him the glory and respect he has long sought. Meanwhile the family bodyguard, Brock Sampson, is a former secret agent who responds to any and all crises with relentless, remorseless brutality.
Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law
Airs Mondays to Fridays at 10 p.m. ET/PT and Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT
Harvey Birdman, winged crime-fighter turned lawyer, defends cartoon characters in trouble in television's first animated courtroom series. Joined by his trusty sidekick, a purple eagle and his slightly delinquent ward, Peanut, Harvey wages legal battles against evil attorneys as he seeks justice for his celebrity clients.
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Airs Mondays to Fridays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT and Sundays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT
Three unique detectives, the Aqua Teen Hunger Force, share a rental house in New Jersey. This mystery-solving trio is comprised of human-sized food products: Master Shake, the big-mouthed, self-appointed team leader with a short attention span and no work ethic; Frylock, the only reasonable member of the group, who happens to be a box of French-fried potatoes – spuds with power; and Meatwad, a talented round mound of meat who can take the shape of a hot dog or an igloo. Together, this triple threat tackles unusual cases from the luxury of a neighbor's swimming pool – unless they're confronted by danger. Then, of course, the three run as fast as they can.
Airs Mondays to Fridays at 11 p.m. ET/PT and Saturdays at 10 p.m., 10:30 p.m. ET/PT
Old-school stop-motion animation and fast-paced satire are the hallmarks of this eclectic show created by Seth Green and Matt Senreich. Action figures find new life as players in frenetic sketch-comedy vignettes that skewer TV, movies, music and celebrity. It’s television especially formulated for the Attentions Deficit Disorder generation.
Airs Saturdays and Sundays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT
A family of inbred squids tear up the North Georgia Mountains. It’s not all drinking, brawling and reckless gunplay – occasionally they use crossbows. There’s also hate, love, a multinational drywall conglomerate, the penal system and a deep-seated mistrust of authority and all things different, all told through the lives of a family of squids left behind when the pre-historic oceans receded from the North Georgia mountains.
