Do you know who else is having a Regular Show marathon?, the answer is not my mom, the correct answer is Cartoon Network UK, they’re having a Regular Show marathon with episodes focusing on Muscle Man this weekend (09/08/2014 and 10/08/2014).
Today has been an important day for Cartoon Network’s Latin American feeds, not only it was the Check 3.0 re-brand, it’s also the premiere of Clarence and a promo for a new show called Jorel’s Brother also aired. The Jorel’s Brother promo was significant, not just because it’s a new show that’s coming soon, but it’s the first show Cartoon Network have made in Brazil and Latin America.
Jorel’s Brother or “O Irmão do Jorel” (as it’s known in Portuguese) is about a nine-year-old kid, who’s the youngest child of an eccentric family and is harassed at school. Juliano Enrico, the creator of the show stated that the characters are loosely based on his family. The main character’s name hasn’t been revealed and is only known as “Jorel’s brother”.
Juliano Enrico pitched Jorel’s Brother to Cartoon Network back in 2009 and won a $20,000 prize and a pilot episode was made. Development on the animated show started after it was announced in 2012.
UPDATE: Jorel’s Brother will premiere on the Brazil variant of CN LA on 22nd September.
Special thanks to CN Vinhetas for the promo and Mariana from ToonZone for the information.
