Just a reminder: Tonight is a big night for cartoons. Cartoon Network will be airing new episodes of:
? Batman: Brave and the Bold at 6pm– “Scorn of the Star Sapphire!” ? Young Justice at 6:30pm — “Targets” ? Clone Wars at 8pm — “Water War and Gungan Attack”
Please note that all times are EST. Please also note this is the Clone Wars season 4 premiere, and it will be an hourt long. Also, while it’s not a series or anything, the Lego Star Wars: The Padawan Menace special will air at 5:30pm, too. Please also also note that while the above trailer says its airing at 7pm, both the official schedule on CartoonNetwork.com and my digital TV guide says its airing at 5:30pm, so you might want to DVR both times, just in case. Or get a large quantity of your favorite alcoholic beverage sit your ass down at 5:30, and just keep it on Cartoon Network for three and a half hours. Whatever floats your boat.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
