The Powerpuff Girls are back! The trio returns for a special this week, Steven Universe jumps into bizarre world of professional wrestling, and we take a look at Rick and Morty, a 'toon from the mind of Dan Harman.


As always - minor spoilers ahead!

Adventure Time - "Blade of Grass"

Finn breaks his sword while fighting a playground full of baddies, so Jake takes him shopping for a new blade. The duo head to Tree Trunk's house to give it whirl, only to learn that the new sword might be cursed.

Steven Universe - "Tiger Millionaire"

Ah, it's one of the most storied tropes in cartoons - send your main character off to join and underground fighting league. Wait, no, that's not right. Steven awakens to find Amethyst sneaking out in the middle of the night on her way to a closed doors wrestling federation where she stars as the Purple Puma.

The Powerpuff Girls - "Dance Pantsed"

Taking the prime-time slot from Regular Show is the one-off return of the Powerpuff Girls. Mojo Jojo invents a Dance Dance Revolution-style video game as a vehicle to gain control of Townsville, and Beatles drummer Ringo Starr makes an interesting cameo as Fibonacci Sequins.


Rick and Morty - "Meeseeks and Destroy"

Rick and Morty is a series from the mind of Dan Harman (Community) about a kid and his scientist grandfather, who happens to be an alcoholic and an unwanted influence in Morty's life. You can check out the entire episode above thanks to Adult Swim.


My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - "Three's a Crowd"

Princess Cadance is en route to Ponyville, but one pony isn't pitching in with the preparations. Discord is sick and doling out demands to the ponies to help him overcome his illness.


Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. - "A Thing About Machines"

The Leader gives the Jump Jet, the official transport of the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., a new operating system with a mind of its own. No clip is available at the time of this post, but once one arrives, I'll pop it in.


Archer Vice - "A Kiss While Dying"

Archer's ISIS-owned penthouse is seized by the government thanks to last week's treasonous escapade, giving Archer and Lana even more incentive to sell the millions in cocaine Malory had hidden away. Language in clip may be NSFW.

Rick & Morty has quickly become my favorite Adult Swim show, which these days is like being the skinniest kid at fat camp but still it's always good for some ridiculous & insane laughs.
