Tonight at midnight, Adult Swim, for the twelfth year in a row, will be doing something for April Fools Day.
Like a box of chocolates, no one knows what we'll get. It could be something awesome, it could be something disappointing.
Come along and reminisce about past AS April Fools, as we wait in anticipation for this year's mystery arrival.
It's the new KND thing, airing as either a TV movie or a half-hour pilot.
Airing it on ADULT Swim is relevant to the episode.
Last year was pretty based with that new Perfect Hair and the marathon of old Space Ghost eps
Hopefully it won't be dissapointing like the year they just put cat heads over their shitty live action shows
A brand new episode of Perfect Hair Forever followed by a marathon of staff selected Space Ghost episodes.
It was awesome seeing the full 30 minute Fire Ant air in its entirety for the first time since the late 90's.
Yeah that was pretty cool, literally ran home when i found out it was airing and stayed up all night. I think the one after that was the one with the cat heads which was a huge disappointment
Still could be pretty cool.
>Adult Swim "hijacked" by KND.
>Station renamed to Kid's Swim.
>Bumps are propaganda messages from the GKND.
>Ties into the button #1 pushed in the video.
So... where is the amazing HD stream by the incredible anon?
>All of the shows on this night's block are crossover episodes with Uncle Grandpa.
Reminder that Tommy Wiseau has a new sitcom out about a tenants in an apartment building.
I doubt that'll be it though. And frankly, I'm sick of The Room. It was funny the first time, but it's been beloved to death.
inb4 The Room minus sex
They should play more b-movies
Shit, they could rip off the idea of National Geographic putting Mike Nelson and Bill Murphy to riff their channel all day
>implying they're going to give them their real schedule on april fools
They are required by law to do this. It must be reported 2 weeks ahead of schedule to the FCC. This is why tv schedules are pretty much made 2 weeks in advance for stuff like this.
Oh man, that year sucked balls. No creativity with that because that could have been WAY better but they did it only their live action shows but it should have been all their shows. I remember it got btfo by TeenNick airing an "episode" of Wacky Deli.
2004 - Random mustaches drawn on show characters
2005 - Unfinished Squidbillies plot aired instead of Robot Chicken
2006 - Reruns of Mr. T and Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos; fart noises throughout Fullmetal Alchemist and Ghost in the Shell: SAC
2007 - Reverse order marathon of Perfect Hair Forever with digital degration and Engrish subtitles; very small but complete picture-in-picture airing of yet unreleased Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie alongside regular programming
2008 - Night of unfinished sneak peeks of future shows
2009 - Airing of The Room
2010 - Re-airing of The Room, featuring bumps of Tommy Wiseau interviewed by Space Ghost
2011 - Re-re-airing of The Room, followed by "Earth Ghost," a remake of the George Lowe reality show "Lowe Country," only Lowe is replaced with a CGI Space Ghost.
2012 - Toonami returns after airing the opening sequence of The Room, featuring classic Toonami anime and new bumps hosted by T.O.M.
2013 - Cats throughout programming and bumps, replacing the faces of live action actors
2014 - New eighth episode of Perfect Hair Forever; Space Ghost marathon featuring creator-chosen episodes and bumps featuring outtakes.
Nope. Cable tv must also report their shows 2 weeks in advance to the fcc to get clearance. Same thing like airplanes they need to get cleared for takeoff so there aren't too many planes in the sky and air traffic and collisions. Same thing goes with over the air tv and cable tv.
why would they air a show from a rival network, one that they probably don't have the rights to show at all?
tonight's Adult Swim is about to be canceled
You know I always played around with the idea of Adult Swim airing all their controversial/never aired before episodes on April Fools.
Outlaw Star (Episode 23: "Hot Springs Planet Tenrei")
The Boondocks (Episode 29: "The Hunger Strike" (Part 1)
-The Boondocks (Episode 30: "The Uncle Ruckus Reality Show" (Part 2)
-Aqua Teen Hunger Force (Episode 69: "Boston")
Any other episodes of shows that would qualify?
It's not exactly that sex doesn't sell, but while cable doesn't have to bow to the FCC most advertising partners will not shell out for airtime during a program that's pornographic or intensely violent in nature
>Adult Swim gets attacked by the KND
>meta-plot in bumpers about how the viewers are all kids who've been brainwashed by Father into thinking we're pathetic 30-somethings with dead end jobs
>As the night goes on, the KND fight against the evil adult tyranny with all new animated segments
>At the end of the night the KND lose and retreat
True, but Home Movies was often TV-PG-D or L and occasionally S.
Even though it was TV-PG, stuff like this would never fly on daytime CN:
Please tell me there will be a stream. I live in an apartment and Time Warner has decided that we don't get TV now unless we want to buy some sort of digital box from them that the apartment manager won't provide himself.
-old CN shows
-marathon of a cool show that doesn't get aired much like space ghost
the possibilities are endless, I just hope it isn't something lackluster like photoshopped cat faces like 2013's.
>dozens of threads talking about a possible KND reboot/sequel with a countdown counting to midnight on April 1st
>AS is known for doing April Fools jokes
>One of AS's jokes lead to Toonami's return
I'm aware of Galactic KND and the April Fool's countdown, still waiting on that reason as to why Adult Swim would air a Cartoon Network show. That'd be fucking retarded, they're not showing it.
>5 hour long Too Many Cooks sequel
I don't think I could make it without dying.
That's why I'm scared shitless, with Adult Swim, you don't know what the fuck your going to expect on the night of April Fools Day, which is why I'm going to go to bed early, and see what happens in the morning!
When they've aired shit like the Mr. T cartoon as an April Fools prank, is a KND throwback really that unbelievable? Especially since the people who grew up with that show are now adults and are watching Adult Swim themselves.
I remember when they did the first airing of that pilot. It was the last one out of a list of pilots right before adult swim. Back when they actually had a pool theme and had a lifegaurd announcer
>Adult Swim does April Fool's things.
>Sometimes related to the network (ie Toonami).
>KND clock ends on April Fool's for no discernible reason,
unless it's really just an extremely elaborate prank.
>The pilot episode of KND was about rebelling against and extended adult swim.
It's not that unthinkable anon.
>It was the last one out of a list of pilots right before adult swim.
BATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES
WE ARE AT CODE RED, REPEAT CODE RED
THIS IS NOT A DRILL
IT'S GOING TO BE TUNNEL SNAKES AND YOU'RE GOING TO LIKE IT
Family Guy (Episode 147: "Partial Terms of Endearment")
Lupin the Third Part II (Episode 3: "To Be or Nazi Be")
Any episode of Baby Blues season 2
The GameTap episodes of Space Ghost: Coast to Coast
>Family Guy confirmed to rid you of your stress
You fucking heard it here first, /co/.
Nothing will ever beat 2007.
That was wicked pissah!
Wait.. that wasn't April 1st, was it?
>Can you keep it up, gramps?
> the over privilaged drunk ones
> not the socially responsible dead ones
Anyone in here who can tell what this says?
Scary shit for us is to take a mundane experience and add horror to it.
Scariest thing for kids now is someone doing something to them on a computer.
Can't wait until we have a killer who murders people who forget their email password
My mother loves it, as well as Cleveland Show and American Dad. She works very hard so I guess she likes a crass, gag-filled show to relax to. Personally I find these shows to be hit or miss, but I'll enjoy watching my mom laugh at crude humor. Warms my heart.
>Midnight, April 1st
>Adult Swim Titlecard is playing for the next episode of Family Guy or Bob's Burgers or whatever fucking else it would've been
>The screen begins to static uncontrollably
>Numbah One's voice can be heard as the screen tunes in on him, visibly panicked yet still dutiful
>"Attention, all KND agents! I'm afraid that we've been out of commission for the past few years, but we've managed to hijack the signal usually controlled by the adults! They're getting to you!"
>"Do you not remember all the fun you had as a kid? The sense of peace and joy that's seemed to fade as soon as you left us and started watching the things made for adults?"
>"We've been apart for a long time, but I know that your inner kid still has to be down there somewhere! We are not to be forgotten, or "outgrown" like the adults want you to believe! We can still fight! We can fight because we are the KIDS NEXT DOOR!"
>The screen statics again, with Numbah One looking alarmed/worried that the signal seems to be leaving early
>Screen statics to an image of Father
>"Well, "Kids Next Door," it's been all this time? You think they can return? You think you'll see them again?"
>"Hahaha... They've been trying to come back lately. They want you to join them, do they? They want you to leave behind all of the comfort that I've provided for you?"
>"Do you know what I think about that, about them trying to make give you up?"
>"Well I'll tell you what I think that I'm..."
"NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP. NEVER GONNA LET YOU DOWN. NEVER GONNA RUN AROUND AND HURT YOU."
Weeks of KND hype and speculation culminates in getting April Fools rickrolled by Father on Adult Swim.
The new KND was all just a hoax.
The segment ends.
Next up, another episode of Family Guy.
so what were the previous pranks?
All I remember was that minature Aqua teen thing, the Room, Perfect Hair Forever's new episode, and the GLORIOUS revival of toonami
Hoping CN doesn't show something stupid like add nonstop farts to their shows
A new episode of Perfect Hair Forever, followed by the same episode of Perfect Hair Forever
Followed by SPACE GHOST:COAST TO COAST for the rest of the night once the losers were weeded out.
POST YOUR FUCKING COIN HUNT TEAM
POST YOUR FUCKING COIN HUNT TEAM
POST YOUR FUCKING COIN HUNT TEAM
WHO /CARL/ HERE?
I am triggered.
Adult Swim better pay Boston a million dollars for this offensive shit.
Oh God this is the worst April Fool's ever. I mean, holy shit.
basically AS aired a sample of their podcast about a Fish Tank for a few weeks in the 4 am EST timeslot
coin quest was some game they played to see which fish passed the most coins in a certain amount
but yeah this was a waste
meanwhile Teen Nick is airing a 90s nick danceparty
It's a bait and switch guys, come on how can you be so dense.
They never had anything this lame, it's just to make us go "oh this is it"
KND is going to interrupt transmission after an episode or two
The Family Guy episode had a parody of this commercial from the 80's promoting tourism to Massachusetts:
I imagine MacFarlane probably saw it a lot living in Rhode Island growing up.
I brought an Aqua Teen Hunger Force lunchbox to school every day for nearly a year during my freshman year of high school, hoping to piss off some people who were still sore about the incident. The only comments I ever got were about how cool the show was.
could be it, yeah
this is the sort of boring shit adults in KND would watch, its could be all there is for the night, or it could be nothing, who knows, we can only know as the night goes on.
>Implying the Adult Swim antic was the only chance we have for KND
>Implying that we aren't gonna get another reveal for
an ebin April Fools rusewith KND before the day's over
Speaking of which, anyone care to see if anything on the rainbowmonkeys password site's changed?
play Persona 4 Golden or buy and download Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate?
I want to lean toward monster hunter but I never seemed to play the one I had on Wii U, then again I might play it more if I can find a working USB charger for the gamepad
ASMB was swept under the rug a few years ago when they redesigned the Adult Swim site.
Even then the Toonami section is fucking retarded so they deserved whatever stupid shit they got
So is this just going to be coin hunt and ATHF the whole night? Because I really don't need to stay up for this shit.
I swear to god, Adult Swim gets more corporate and formulaic every year.
Not that anon (and still not buying into the link between AS and KND,) but it's not necessarily IMPOSSIBLE, considering how much control networks get with this kind of stuff (and how much free advertising this would be, since AS is primarily watched by late teens and 20-somethings who would remember KND.)
It's a long shot, and I don't believe it; but you have not fucking seen delusion unless you were on /vp/ when they were speculating about the Battle Frontier being in ORAS. Even after the reviews and leaks made it painfully obvious there wasn't.
>This is still happening.
>This is most likely going to be the whole April Fool's special.
Do I need to be high to get this?
For the coins that is. I know that is how Aqua Teen works.
It's just never going to happen dude.
They were too scared when they did literally nothing wrong.
But now an actual bombing happened and the guy's in court right now. im a bostonian, i wanna see that episode, but people are crybabies it wont happen.
COIN HUNT!? A FUCKING COIN HUNT! GOD DAMN IT [AS] YOU LITERALLY COULD HAVE HAD MADE THE HYPEST MOMENT IN ALL CN HISTORY AND YOU JUST HAD TO GO AND PROMOTE YOU'RE NORMIE AS FUCK PODCAST
ATHF placed "Light Brights" of the mooninites around boston to promote the movie
People mistook it as bombs
Adult Swim got in lots of trouble
They made an episode to make fun of this whole situation but they never aired it.
A few years later, an actual bombing happened in Boston. so it's even way more unlikely to air.
carl rarely moves because he actually has limbs and shit that need to be animated
usually they just change scene and have him in another location without actually showing him move
>teennick has been enjoyable
Are they playing Wacky Deli again?
So I called that phone number and it told me to leave a message, but I couldn't understand anything else because they guy on the recording sounded like he was stoned.
What the duck did I just record?
They have to move around and actually touch the coin for them to get the point. If the scene shifts and the coin just happens to be over them, it doesn't count.
Since Carl doesn't actually move all that much in the show, it's purposefully rigged for him.
