Adult Swim USA New Show Tigtone Premieres 13th January

This Sunday (13th January) at 12am ET/PT, Adult Swim will premiere a brand new show – Tigtone. The show takes place in a satirical medieval fantasy universe, Tigtone – the show’s legendary quest-addicted titular character fights through this strange, absurd and melodramatic place, he always obeys the law by never its spirit, he also has an appropriately named eager sidekick – Helpy at his side.

The brand new show is created by Andrew Koehler and Benjamin Martian, with Blake Anderson, the co-creator of Comedy Central’s Workaholics serving as an executive producer. Tigtone is animated by Titmouse, the same studio behind Adult Swim’s The Venture Bros and Ballmastrz: 9009 and is produced by Babyhemyth Productions. Tigtone features several references from fantasy RPGs (role playing games), video games, and films. Tigtone makes use of highly rendered, hand-painted fantasy art, motion capture acting, 2D animation and 3D-like visual effects producing an unusual but unique and visually impressive effect.

Tigtone is voiced by musician Nils Frykdahl, his sidekick – Helpy voiced by Debi Derryberry (voice of Jimmy Neutron in Nickelodeon’s The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius). The show’s regular cast also features Bill Corbett (Mystery Science Theater), Lucy Davis (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), John DiMaggio (Jake from Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time), Cree Summer (Atlantis: The Lost Empire), and Gary Anthony Williams (The Lion Guard) plus many more.

Special guests in the show’s first season include include Alan Oppenheimer (Passions), Gregg Turkington (On Cinema), John Waters (Feud), Fred Willard (Anchorman) and many more.

The first two episode of Tigtone as well as the show’s pilot can be viewed on the Adult Swim USA website and on the Adult Swim app.

From The Adult Swim USA Press Release: Tigtone Slays His Way to Adult Swim on January 13th

The quest begins Sunday, January 13th at Midnight ET/PT on Adult Swim. See the all-new trailer:

The New Year brings epic adventures for Adult Swim’s new animated series, Tigtone, premiering Sunday, January 13th at Midnight ET/PT. This quarter-hour series is created by Andrew Koehler and Benjamin Martian, who also serve as executive producers with Blake Anderson (Workaholics).

Tigtone is the saga of a quest-addicted hero (Tigtone) who slashes his way through a satirical fantasy universe with melodramatic ferocity and a complete disregard for the collateral damage he inflicts along the way. The series both celebrates and subverts tropes of the fantasy genre, role playing games, video games, and films.

Combining highly rendered, hand-painted fantasy art, motion capture performance, 2D animation, and pseudo-3D visual effects, the wizards at Titmouse have ventured into uncharted territory to pioneer this radical new style, creating a Tigtone universe that is beautifully unsettling.

A colorful cast of characters include Tigtone’s eager sidekick, Helpy, voiced by Debi Derryberry (Jimmy Neutron) and newcomer, Nils Frykdahl, who voices Tigtone. Among the regular cast are Bill Corbett (Mystery Science Theater), Lucy Davis (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), John DiMaggio (Adventure Time), Cree Summer (Atlantis: The Lost Empire), and Gary Anthony Williams (The Lion Guard) to name a few.

Special guest stars this season include Alan Oppenheimer (Passions), Gregg Turkington (On Cinema), John Waters (Feud), Fred Willard (Anchorman), and more.

Cartoon Network This Week Episode 29 Adventure Time Final Voice Session

This week’s episode of Cartoon Network This Week is all about the final voice acting session of Adventure Time, the show’s after party and a look at the show from the perspective of the show’s cast. Be warned, this episode will contain spoilers, so if you haven’t already done so (if possible), watch the Adventure Time finale on the Cartoon Network app in the United States, international audiences will have to wait until the finale airs in their respective countries.

The episode starts off with Willow Smith singing the Adventure Time theme for the final episode – Come Along With Me, she also voices Beth – The Pup Princess. Then Sam shows the waving snail on to of Finn and Jake’s treehouse in the final episode of Adventure Time, as last week’s episode of Cartoon Network This Week was all about the snail that features in every episode of Adventure Time. In the episode, Jeremy Shada (voice of Finn), John DiMaggio (voice of Jake), Olivia Olsen (voice of Marceline) look back through the history of the series, they were amazed about the amount of support from the show’s fans and look back to the first Adventure Time panel at San Diego Comic-Con, while at the convention they were impressed by the costumes of Adventure Time cosplayers. This was followed by the actual voice acting session with Kent Osborne (Adventure Time’s Head of Story), Tom Kenny (voice of Ice King and Gunter the Penguin), John DiMaggio and Jeremy Shada.

After the voice acting segment, is the after party, the centerpiece of the party was an cake featuring all the main characters from Adventure Time, production crew and voice acting talent of both past and present were invited to the final celebration, the show’s supervising director throughout the whole course of the series – Kelly Crews makes a speech about the show’s voice talent. John DiMaggio describes Jake’s voice as his own voice but with a hug around it, the show’s creator – Pendleton Ward gives him a hug. The voice of Tree Trunks – Polly Lou Livingston joined in the party via video call. Cartoon Network’s executive of current series – Conrad Montgomery describes the show as “always adventurous, always interesting” and has said that working on the show made him a better person, this segment ends with Pendleton Ward saying thanks to everyone.

The episode concludes with Sam, on behalf of the whole Cartoon Network team, he says “How do we feel about the end of Adventure Time?”, this was followed by a clip of Lemongrab saying (or rather, yelling) his infamous catchphrase – UNACCEPTABLE!. Adventure Time maybe over (at least in the form of a show), but the fun will never end.

The Cartoon Network App is free and unlocked this weekend (no pay-TV login details required), if you live the United States, why not check out the finale of Adventure Time – Come Along With Me.

How to cope with the end of Adventure Time:

New Adventure Time comics: BOOM! Studios will be releasing “Adventure Time: Season 11” in comic-book form in the United States in October 2018, although this may not be considered canon (it’s still 100% authorised by Cartoon Network), but it will offer some extra closure of what could of happened with Finn, Jake and friends after the events of the finale.
