Cartoon Network USA And Adult Swim USA Celebrate April Fools’ Day 2019

Cartoon Network USA And Adult Swim USA Celebrate April Fools' Day 2019

Cartoon Network USA And Adult Swim USA Celebrate April Fools’ Day 2019

Today (1st April), is April Fools’ Day, a day that’s celebrated all over the world and is known for its practical jokes and Cartoon Network and Adult Swim is no exception. Cartoon Network USA has been airing some of the best episodes featuring pranks, with next bumper presentation highlighting the best prank fails and wins, with clips from shows such as The Amazing World of Gumball, Total DramaRama and Teen Titans Go!.

Adult Swim pranked its viewers with a brand new show – Gemusetto Machu Picchu, an animated show that parodies Japanese anime, most particularly of the sports sub-genre and is about a boy who competes in a tennis tournament in one of the most random places ever – Machu Picchu, the world famous citadel of the Incan civilisation in Peru. a total of six episodes were aired last night from 12am ET/PT, with five episodes lasting an hour and the finale lasting 45 minutes.

Gemusetto Machu Picchu was simulcasted on both television and the Adult Swim online livestream. The title of the show is a pun on the English language originated Tennis term – Game, Set and Match in Tennis and Gemusetto (to itchi) is the Japanese version of the term, with the Machu part of Machu Picchu forming the “match” part of the pun.

Gemusetto Machu Picchu was only trademarked by Cartoon Network in December last year, and before last night’s show premiere, very little info about the show was publicly released. Gemusetto Machu Picchu also aired on the brand new Adult Swim channel in Canada, six hours before the channel’s official launch and while the channel was still technically called “Action”, a now defunct channel brand (as of today) owned by Corus.

Meanwhile, Cartoon Network Southeast Asia pranked its YouTube channel subscribers with a video revealing a new fourth bear in We Bare Bears, but it turns out it was just a prank, it was only Grizzy from Grizzy and The Lemmings.

Changes In The Children’s Television Industry: Cartoon Network Enterprises Northern Europe

In an article by licensing news website – Licensing Source – “Channel hopping: The changing face of children’s TV”, Cartoon Network Enterprises’ Northern Europe director – Graham Saltmarsh was interviewed about the changing face of children’s television, how kids access content today and how it relates to product licensing.

According to Graham, traditional television remains to be the main gateway for kids who want to discover content and new brands, but he also points out that a 360-degree approach to content is necessary, which covers YouTube views, shows being available on VOD services as well as the traditional linear television service. In Northern Europe (UK and Nordics), Ben 10 and Teen Titans Go! were among the top performers for Cartoon Network in 2018, and Graham also highlighted Bakugan as a brand to watch in 2019, the new Bakugan series – Bakugan: Battle Planet premiered on Cartoon Network UK last Saturday (23rd March).
