This week in the world of cartoons, Carnage and Green Goblin tangle on Ultimate Spider-Man, Shockwave surprisingly returns from Cybertron, and we are treated to an absolutely charming episode of Adventure Time.


As always - minor spoilers ahead!

Ultimate Spider-Man – "Carnage”

The Green Goblin and Carnage make appearances in this episode, with the series giving an interesting twist to Carnage’s origin.

Big spoiler – this clip shows the host for this “new” version of the sadistic 1990s villain.

Transformers: Prime – "Scattered”

Shockwave returns to the Decepticons after his exile on Cybertron, but Starscream is doing the heavy lifting for the Decepticons by placing a tracking device on Wheeljack as he escapes from the Darkmount base.

This extended clip from the episode explains what Shockwave did on Cybertron during all that down time.

Adventure Time – "Simon and Marcy"

It’s a Marceline and Ice King episode! This episode from Monday night tells a 996 year old tale, a tale of young Marcy and a John Lennon-esque Ice King surviving amidst the ruins of civilization. A perfect companion to last season’s “I Remember You.”


Regular Show – " A Bunch of Full Grown Geese "

In this episode from last Monday night, Mordecai and Rigby have a nice afternoon at the park ruined by a gaggle of asshole geese. The geese have taken over the park, running off animal denizens and human visitors, leaving Mord and Rigs to fight them off.


Archer – "The Papal Chase"

A summary of this week's episode of Archer doesn't really serve the show justice. Check out this clip, which features Archer as a priest, Pam as a nun, and Lana trying to hold everything together as ISIS attempts to save the Pope from an assassination plot.


If anyone is an expert in a number of foreign languages, feel free to do your brothers and sisters a favor and translate the non-English portions of this week's episode. Archer clips could be considered NSFW, so watch with care and keep one eye looking over your shoulder.
