Note: All news comes from ToonZoon.net.

"Flapjack," "Chowder," "Re-Animated" Series Among New Shows for '07

Flapjack, Chowder, Santo, The Secret Saturdays and a series spin-off of last year's Re-Animated movie are among the new series coming to Cartoon Network in 2007.

In Flapjack the title character lives in a talking whale called Bubbie with an old pirate, Captain K'nuckles, whose fish stories get Flapjack into trouble.

Chowder is an apprentice chef who can't help eating everything he sees while aiding his magical master, Mung Dahl. The show is created and produced by Carl Greenblatt, formerly of SpongeBob SquarePants and Billy and Mandy, whose blog is chock full of lovely production art, promos, doodles and more. The upfront site also includes three clips of the show.

Like the earlier TV movie, the live-action hybrid series Re-Animated follows a boy named Jimmy, who has the transplanted brain of a famous animator, allowing him to see cartoon characters no one else can. Three clips are on the upfront site.

In Santo a silver-masked luchador fights wrestlers inside the ring, and as a real-life superhero fights vampires, mummies and rampaging robots outside it.

Finally, in The Secret Saturdays, Doc, Drew and Jack Saturday are "part of a network of scientists protecting the world" from the paranormal while "dealing with the usual family squabbles."

Three "Billy & Mandy" Movies, More Specials & Crossovers Planned

Crossover events and TV movies are planned for most of Cartoon Network's major originals in 2007.

[UPDATED:]Five network series - Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Ed, Edd & Eddy, My Gym Partner is a Monkey, Camp Lazlo and The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy - will participate in the "Cartoon Network Invaded" event in May. Every Friday in that month an alien will invade one of these shows, climaxing in a World Alien Invasion marathon on Memorial Day.

The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy will get three events. First, the characters will join with the heroes of Kids Next Door, when the latter must rescue Billy when he gets stuck in his dad's "lucky pants." Then in Billy & Mandy's Big Boogey Adventure the duo fight the boogeyman in "an epic tale of monster pirates, futuristic robots, evil artifacts, and snot." [UPDATE: The film will premiere March 30 at 7 p.m. after a Billy & Mandy marathon that will begin at 4 p.m.] Then in Billy & Mandy: Spider Queen they must join with their enemies when Grim's past comes back to haunt him.

The second season of the Class of 3000 will open with a TV special featuring Andre "3000" Benjamin.

Finally, the DreamWorks animated film Shrek will air on the network in "a huge movie event." No airdate was provided.

"Ben 10" Live Action and Animated Movies In Production

Cartoon Network will produce two movies based on its series Ben 10, the network says.

In the first, an animated film, Ben accidentally sets the Omnitrix on self-destruct and must find its creator to shut it down.

Meanwhile, the network says it is also preparing a live-action film version of the series. [UPDATE: The film will be directed by Alex Winter, star of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and voice actor in Saul of the Mole Men and will premiere in December. Casting is still underway.]

New Afterschool Block and Fridays Block in 2007

Cartoon Network in late summer 2007 will launch a new after-school block to be called Master Control, the network says. The block's web site will include a game, and players can choose one of four teams. Each week the winning team will be able to manipulate the schedule for that week by choosing from a selection of four to six Cartoon network comedy shows. The team's logo will appear during the block.

The network will also start a new Friday night primetime block to be called Fried Dynomite, which will feature new kid hosts and a new set.

Toonami will continue to run on Saturday nights.

No mention was made of CN's current after-school block Miguzi or its current Friday night bloc of programming.

New Online Initiatives Include MMO for 2008

In Spring 2008, Cartoon Network will launch a massively multiplayer online game in what they call "one of our largest new media investments ever."

Other online initiatives include CN Clipbook, an online cartoon maker that will also allow users to share their creations and rate others; CN Minimatch, a service to match users for multiplayer and allow them to create their own online personas; and "Gadget Game," which will utilize a computer's microphone or webcam to allow kids to "embody and converse with their favorite characters."

The regular games on the Web site (which, CN emphasizes, are "not lame") tallied over 2 billion plays in 2006.

"Naruto" Movie Coming to CN

An online preview of Cartoon Network's upfront presentation reveals the network will run a Naruto "premiere movie event." No details were available about whether the "event" would feature one of the theatrical Japanese Naruto films.

"Get Animated" Health Promotion Continues in 2007

Cartoon Network's "Get Animated Summer Tour" will return for its fourth year in 2007, the network said today. The mobile tour, which the company runs in conjunction with cable operators, encourages kids to engage in fun and healthy activities.

The program is part of Cartoon Network's continuing "Get Animated" initiative, which will also produce a public education campaign designed to encourage kids to eat healthy foods. Turner Entertainment Group President Mark Lazarus proudly annnounced the FDA has chosen "Get Animated" as its exclusive partner for "SPOT THE BLOCK," featuring animated characters in an online and on-air campaign to help kids "learn to read food labels" and "make healthier food choices." In the first on-air spot, "SPOT THE BLOCK, YO!", characters from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Camp Lazlo, and My Gym Partner's a Monkey perform a musical number explaining where to find the Nutrition Facts label on packaging and how best to utilize the information.

Ben 10: Hero Generation

Cartoon Network will be launching a sequel series to its hit action cartoon Ben 10, which will be entitled Ben 10: Hero Generation.

This new series will focus on a slightly older Ben and Gwen as they team up and mentor a group of children who have similar powers to Ben. The age shift will introduce new, more mature issues, but the target demographic will be the same as the original Ben 10.

No premiere date was given, but Cartoon Network says that it will premiere sometime before Spring 2008.

"Class of 3000" Soundtrack Announced

Cartoon Network has announced that it will release a CD Soundtrack featuring songs that appear in or are based on their hit series Class of 3000, starring Andre "3000" Benjamin.

The soundtrack's release will coincide with the premiere of the second season, which is slated to air in June. A special musical performance special will kickoff the second season.

"Kids Next Door" Finale to Air in November

Cartoon Network has announced that their hit series Codename: Kids Next Door will air its series finale this November.

This one-hour special event will focus on the last mission of the Kids Next Door, with one member not returning from the mission.

No specific date nor time were announced.

Cartoon Network Gives Kids "Props"

This summer, Cartoon Network will air 16 special segments in a series called "Props." The segments will highlight extraordinary kids performing extraordinary acts of athleticism. They will air both on the channel and on the network's website.

Viewers of the ads will then be able to log onto Cartoonnetwork.com and vote for their favorite segment. The 6 finalists will get a one-hour special highlighting their achievements in September.

Interesting--but none of it really keeps my interest right now. Hum...

I guess I've moved on. Pretty much the same with Nick. [Besides Avatar, anyways Tire la langue ] Disney's got some prospects--with Kim Possible being back in the spotlight. I think---when it comes to animation shown on TV--I'm not into it much anymore Pleure

Animated movies on the other hand...Shreck the Thidr looks mighty tempting Très content

The only CN non-adult swim shows I watch are My Gym Partner's a Monkey, Courage the Cowardly Dog (which airs again every night Mon-Thurs @ 10:00 p.m. edt), and occasionally Squirrel Boy
