Dan is a man on a mission to find his match while in space. After searching relationship sites, he finally managed to score a date. But it’s not what he had hoped for. Austen Reeder’s short clip is every bit as weird and warped as we’ve come to expect from Adult Swim SMALLS. Take more Star Boat journeys here.
Awesome Adult Swim
There’s nothing like a peaceful autumn bike ride through the forest as colorful leaves fall around you. Illustrator Julian Glander’s lighthearted animated short for Adult Swim SMALLS starts out that way, then takes quite the unexpected turn about halfway through.
Could you use an extra kid in the house? Caleb and Kegan’s incredibly bizarre clip from Adult Swim SMALLS offers up the most peculiar digital baby since the dancing baby meme. We wonder if they used a 3D printer instead of a 2D one if things would have turned out better.
Space Ghost: Coast to Coast and its spin-off The Brak Show were two of our faves from the early days of Adult Swim. Saad Rahman (aka “Sad Ramen“) and April Son are fans too, and they created this eccentric follow up to the series in which the crew gets separated by space and time, leading to a web of intrigue and mystery.
“Now go out there, and be nobody!” Aqua Teen Hunger Force’s brash and insensitive neighbor Carl Brutananadilewski was invited by Adult Swim to give a commencement speech to the graduates of the Class of 2020. As expected, absolutely zero of his monologue is inspiring, sensible, or politically correct.
The boys are back in the multiverse. After a 6-month hiatus, Rick and Morty returns with the back half of its fourth season. Along the way, they wear unnecessarily badass suits and destroy countless aliens. Oh, and Snuffles (er, Snowball) returns to face a new enemy. The five new episodes kick off 5/3/2020 on Adult Swim.
(PG-13: Gore) Rick and Morty star in this bloodsoaked anime about a group of angry Ninja Ricks who think Rick WTM-72 has kidnapped Shogun Morty, and will do anything to stop him. Directed and written by Kaichi Sato, and produced by Studio DEEN. In Japanese, with English subtitles.
In this short and silly animation, a man is sick and tired of the numerous scooters that have popped up around his city, and he voices his frustration by scooting away from all of it himself. Directed and animated by Daniela Sherer for Adult Swim Smalls. Music by David Hughes, J. Christopher Arrison, and Mason Brown.
Genndy Tartakovsky is best known for creating Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Now, he’s working on Primal, a new Adult Swim series that follows a caveman who befriends a dinosaur on the brink of extinction in a brutal, primordial world. It looks incredible from this brief clip. Drops Fall 2019.
Adult Swim and Vernon Chatman’s new stop-motion series is described as an “omnibus of painfully riotous emotional parables dripping from the deepest caverns of your unconscious.” And from what we saw in the first episode, they nailed the description. Premieres 12/9/18.
