Wondering what to watch with your kids when the broadcast networks finally get out of the Saturday morning cartoon business for good? Fret no longer.

Mighty Magiswords (Cartoon Network)

What It’s About: Mighty Magiswords follows Prohyas and Vambre, a sibling team of “warriors for hire” as they venture through the Kingdom of Rhyboflaven collecting sentient – and silly – magical swords.

Voiced By: Kyle A. Carozza, Grey DeLisle, Eric Bauza, “Weird” Al Yankovic, Jack McBrayer

Where Does It Air: Cartoon Network – series premiere Thursday, Sept. 29 at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT

Why You Should Watch: “An adult is likely to catch on to some of our smart jokes (and our wily groaners) and college-age young adults will probably get a kick out of just how weird the show is,” series creator Kyle A. Carrozza told Rotten Tomatoes. Just say “Kingdom of Rhyboflaven” out loud to get what he means. “We’re really fast and funny without talking down to kids,” Carozza said. “It doesn’t seem like there are a whole lot of shows that are this cartoony on right now. We offer as much squash and stretch as we do swords and sorcery. Even with that being the case, we work hard to make sure we keep the heart and emotional stakes a part of the story.”

Sesame Street: Season 46 (2016) 91%

Sesame Street (HBO)

What It’s About: The classic Pre-K series is now in its 46th season of teaching kids how to spell, count, share, be healthy, and most importantly, love one another. Don’t we all need some of that right about now?

Special Guests: Usher, Ed Sheeran, Tracee Ellis Ross, Alan Cumming

Where Does It Air: HBO (new episodes air on PBS after HBO’s exclusive window)

Why You Should Watch: Beyond the amazing guest spots from celebrities your 5-year-old has never heard of, Sesame Street has delivered some dead-on parodies of grownup shows like House of Cards (Netflix) and Game of Thrones (HBO) that will keep you entertained along with your offspring. You grew up on it, and your kids should, too.

Regular Show: Season 8 (2016)

Regular Show (Cartoon Network)

What It’s About: It’s a surreal workplace/slacker comedy for kids, centering around best friends Rigby, a raccoon, and Mordecai, a blue jay, and their fantastical coworkers – i.e. their boss, Pops, is a giant walking lollipop.

Voiced By: Mark Hamill, J.G. Quintel, William Salyers, Linda Cardinelli

Where Does It Air: Cartoon Network

Why You Should Watch: Regular Show is entering its eighth and final season, and during its lengthy run the series was nominated for multiple Emmy Awards – winning the prize for Best Short-form Animated Series in 2012. Beyond the accolades, the show has plenty of jokes that will sail above kids’ heads and straight to you – all while they laugh at the kooky characters and absurd situations.

Home: Adventures With Tip & Oh: Season 1 (2016)

Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh (Netflix)

What It’s About: Picking up where the 2015 DreamWorks Animation film left off, Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh follows the exploits of mischievous alien Oh and fearless teen girl Tip after the otherworlder moves in with her family.

Voiced By: Rachel Crow, Mark Whitten, Ana Ortiz, Ron Funches

Where Does It Air: Netflix

Why You Should Watch: A lot of hay was made about the importance of representation when the film Home was released last year and with due cause – how many animated features with a positive young black female lead can you name? Taking this premise onto the small screen is yet another step in the right direction for young girls to be able to recognize themselves in the TV shows they watch. Plus, the show features a ton of great original pop songs by Rachel Crow!

The Powerpuff Girls: Season 1 () 69%

The Powerpuff Girls (Cartoon Network)

What It’s About: Sugar, spice, and everything nice. These were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect little girls… you know the rest. A lonely and eccentric professor accidentally adds Chemical X to his girl stew and creates three daughters who have to battle bad guys, an inept Townsville government, and the trials and tribulations of growing up in this reboot of the ’90s classic.

Voiced By: Tom Kane, Tom Kenny, Amanda Leighton, Kristen Li, Natalie Palamides

Where Does It Air: Cartoon Network (original series available on Netflix)

Why You Should Watch: Lovers of the original series have been torn about the reboot, to say the least. But no reboot is going to give you the exact same feels as its forebearer. The reality is: Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup still kick butt in this new iteration of Powerpuff Girls, and that is just damn fun to watch. Your daughter should watch with you because little girls could always use a tough-as-nails female role model or three.

Descendants: Wicked World: Season 1 (2015)

Descendants: Wicked World (Disney Channel)

What It’s About: The animated spin-off of the TV movie spin-off of all of Disney’s fairy tale movies, Descendants: Wicked World follows the teenage kids of villains and princesses alike as they navigate high school.

Voiced By: Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Cameron Boyce, Booboo Stewart, Mitchell Hope, Brenna D’Amico, Sarah Jeffery, Dianne Doan

Where Does It Air: Disney Channel – Season 2 premieres during Disney’s “Monstober”

Why You Should Watch: The 2015 movie was a smash hit, and a breath of fresh air from the tired reboots and rehashes that we normally get from existing IP. Wicked World expands that story with slick animation and plenty of razzle-dazzle to keep the kids’ attention.

Bottersnikes & Gumbles (Netflix)

What It’s About: Based on the acclaimed Australian book series, Bottersnikes & Gumbles is the classic story of sweet innocent creatures trying to get along with their crude, nasty neighbors.

Voiced By: Robbie Daymond, Erica Lindbeck, Tara Sands

Where Does It Air: Netflix

Why You Should Watch: The animation is absolutely gorgeous. The themes are universal. The potty humor is just right for a 4-year-old, and you’ll hate yourself for laughing at it too.

This week in TV news, MTV Classic announces its launch, Sesame Street is evicting old favorites, Idina Menzel will star in a Beaches remake, and more!


WEITZ BROTHERS SIGN ON TO TV ADAPTATION OF SINATARO

sinatoro 2

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story screenplay writer Chris Weitz and his brother and Mozart in the Jungle co-creator Paul have signed on to produce the television adaptation of the Black Mask Studios comic book Sinataro written and created by Grant Morrison. And the comic isn’t even available yet! Morrison will co-write the series along with American Odyssey writing team Adam Armus and Kay Foster. Morrison’s idea for the title as a whole is to include an interweaving of narratives between all types of media like comics, film, and television. The story is a new take on the Tibeten Book of the Dead with Western influences and focuses on the mission of one soldier that leads him through many dark American mythologies. The creative team plans to assign a director, and then shop the series to buyers at Universal Television, the studio that is co-producing the project.

SESAME STREET FIRES BELOVED ORIGINAL CAST MEMBERS BOB, LUIS AND GORDON

Sesame_1973

Sesame Street‘s recent move to HBO is coming with a lot of changes. The classic one-hour format will be shortened to 30-minutes, the set is being changed up and the last of the original cast members are being “graciously let go” from the series they helped to build. Bob, Luis and Gordon have been asked to move out of America’s favorite neighborhood. Bob McGrath sang many of Sesame Street’s signature songs like “People in Your Neighborhood.” Emilio Delgado played Luis and was crucial to introducing Latino culture to the show. Science teacher, Gordon, the patriarch of the Robinson family was the first character introduced on the show. It is not clear whether the new series will simply return without them or if audiences will have a chance to say goodbye.


IDINA MENZEL IS THE WIND BENEATH OUR WINGS

iidina menzel copy

The consummate Broadway performer and fan favorite, Idina Menzel has been cast as the lead in Lifetime’s remake of Beaches. The Frozen, Wicked, and Rent super-star will play the role of CC, originated by Bette Midler in Gary Marshall’s 1988 feature film. The film will include the movie’s music, including the infamous “Wind Beneath My Wings” and “The Glory of Love,” which Menzel will record for the Lifetime remake.
