TORONTO, March 25, 2013 /CNW/ - TELETOON viewers are in for a treat this
April when the network will offer a sampling of top programming from the
recently launched animation channel Cartoon Network. Viewers who have yet to tune in to this new channel will have the
opportunity to check out hit Cartoon Network shows every Wednesday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET/PT in April during a special programming block that includes Cartoon
Network-exclusive titles like Regular Show, Incredible Crew and MAD: The Animated Series.
Brought to Canada in July 2012, Cartoon Network offers a unique
and diverse slate of entertainment experiences through hilarious

the titles above, the Cartoon Network lineup features popular shows
including Ben 10: Omniverse, Dexter's Laboratory and Generator Rex.

Regular Show features best friends Mordecai (a six-foot-tall blue jay) and Rigby (a
hyperactive raccoon). The two are groundskeepers at a park owned by
Pops, a humanoid-looking lollipop who has spent his entire life there.
The job is so deadly dull that the two friends will do anything they
can to avoid it. This doesn't go over well with their boss Benson (an
anthropomorphic gumball machine) — but their efforts often result in
insane escapades that delight Pops.
Incredible Crew (New Episodes)
Airs Wednesdays in April at 8 p.m. ET/PT
Incredible Crew is a half-hour sketch comedy series from producer and entertainer Nick
Cannon. Every episode of this high-energy, fast-paced show delivers
hilarious comedy bits, outrageous hidden camera pranks, original music
videos and commercial parodies all with a distinct attitude - a
contemporary blend of internet sensibility mixed with kid imagination.
MAD: The Animated Series (New Episodes)
Airs Wednesdays in April at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT
An animated sketch-comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation and
inspired by the iconic MAD magazine, a twisted mix of humor and
animation styles pulls back the curtain and exposes the sordid truth
behind movies, TV shows, games and - of course - curtains! Classic MAD
icons are featured, as well as a barrage of pop culture parodies and
