Work Around Town 2020 -- #1

Below, current production work from Cartoon Network Studio in Burbank. I'm breaking work down studio by studio, so that these posts don't get too long and unwieldy. (NOTE: these posts will be changing as new info comes in.)

The overarching reality for small-screen cartoons here in the new Roaring Twenties? Multiple animation studios are producing large amounts of Subscription Video On Demand, from Disney+ to Netflix to HBO Max, Hulu and various others. And there is still ongoing productions for Cartoon Network, the Disney Channel, Fox Primetime, etc. (The other "distribution platforms"). This holds true for Cartoon Network, Disney Television Animation and multiple others. Also, too: the Animation Guild continues to expand, rising to 5300+ members.

Cartoon Network --

Cartoon Network anticipates placing three new shows in work in 2020 (projects to be decided.)

The studio produces content for a variety of distribution platforms, but it's been creating more content for HBO Max. Most series are now created as 11-minute episodes.

Adventure Time -- spin-off specials now in work.

Apple & Onion -- season #2 in work.

Ben 10 -- completed; Kevin 11 spin-off awaiting possible pick up.

Close Enough -- ending Season #2, awaiting possible pickup for #3.

Craig of the Creek -- more than 100 11-minute episodes completed and could be near the end of its run. (No final decisions about end.)

Fungies -- Season #2.

Infinity Train -- HBO Max -- 10 11-minute serialized episodes. There is talk of doing a long-form special.

Steven Universe Future -- series completed. New episodes still airing.

Summer Camp Island -- in production season #3

J. J. Vallard's Fairy Tales -- 10 limited animation episodes.

Summer Camp Island -- Season #2

Tig 'n Seek -- in production season #2

Victor and Valentino -- ongoing

We Bare Bears long-form special near completion.

Wee Baby Bears -- season #1.

Update: Cartoon Network is in negotiations with Titmouse Studios to do more episodes of "Mao Mao: Heros Of Pure Heart".

  5. What happened to "Super-Rilla"? Did it get canned? I was looking forward to that, as the name reminded me of those hilarious memes of Harambe the Gorilla (Get it? "Super-RILLA"?)!

    Also, is Craig Of The Creek ending?

  7. I hope Craig of the Creek runs for a few more seasons, I don't the show to end quickly and I hope they make a Craig of the Creek movie live-action or animated.
    And I also hope Season 5 of We Bare Bears, Season 7 of The Amazing World of Gumball, and when will Elliott from Earth premiere on Cartoon Network?
    And also for Book 3 of Infinity Train, I hope it's a prequel of Book 1.

    1. There haven't yet been announcements. Here's what I was told a little while ago:

      "Summer Camp Island" is in the middle of their 2nd season. Things look promising that they'll get a third season.

      "Mao Mao: Heros Of Pure Heart" is produced at Titmouse for Cartoon Network. I've heard that CN will not be picking up any new episodes.

    2. So the show will end at around 50 episodes?

      Also so new episodes of Infinity Train are being made for HBOMax

    3. UPDATE: Just in! "MAo Mao" Heroes of Pure Heart" MAY be adding new episodes, as Cartoon Network is in talks with TitMouse for more shows.

    1. Haven't heard anything, but it's not ... I don't think ... an L.A. based project.

    2. Thank you for responding. I'm aware Gumball was produced in Europe, but I thought maybe you could shed some light on the situation since the last episode ended on a huge cliffhanger and it seems like a movie has been in up in the air for about 2 years now
