Cartoon Network USA Uncle Grandpa Finale Aired Friday 30th June

Note: This is my opinion, also suggestions and possibilities are not facts.

Yesterday (30/06/2017) at 4.30pm ET/PT, Cartoon Network USA aired the two final episodes of Uncle Grandpa – Exquisite Grandpa and Uncle Grandpa: The High School Years. The penultimate episode of Exquisite Grandpa is about Uncle Grandpa having night terrors and the episode – Uncle Grandpa: The High School Years is about Uncle Grandpa and his friends reminiscing their time at High School, which is a good way to end the show. The show is about a magical character called Uncle Grandpa, and as his name suggests, he’s everyone’s uncle and grandpa, he visits children all over the world to sort out the problems in their daily lives, he travels around the world in his RV with his friends Belly Bag (a talking magical bag Uncle Grandpa wears which stores everything he needs), Mr. Gus (a talking dinosaur) and Pizza Steve (a narcissistic talking slice of pizza).

Uncle Grandpa is known for its surreal humour, visual gags and puns, but it never reached the ratings compared to the likes of Adventure Time or The Amazing World of Gumball on Cartoon Network, some have argued that the humour doesn’t appeal to them. Personally, I’ve enjoyed the show, and just like Clarence, I felt that it was underrated and has been sidelined. Five seasons is a great run for an animated show and just like Clarence, the show had a cult following, personally I’m glad that Cartoon Network stayed committed to the series, even though it never had high ratings when compared to the most popular Cartoon Network shows in the United States.

Uncle Grandpa also had his own daily Breakfast Club programming block (as it was known in the UK and Africa) airing on Cartoon Network feeds across Europe (under various names such as El Club de la Tostada in Spain and Morgon Klubben in Scandinavia, Morgon Klubben has now been transformed into a retro 80’s themed block), which means it’s one of the few shows that has had a themed programming block.

I wish the best of luck to Peter Browngardt and his team on their future projects. Peter Browngardt has worked on Chowder, The Marvellous Misadventures of Flapjack and his other show – Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, he has a wealth of experience working in the animation industry. I’m interested to find out what he will be working on next.
