Random! Cartoons is a spin-off of the Nickelodeon animation showcase Oh Yeah! Cartoons. Produced by Frederator Studios and Nickelodeon Animation Studios for the Nicktoons, it was premiered on December 6, 2008 and ended on August 14, 2009. As of August 15, 2009, the series currently reruns on Nicktoons.

Description[edit]

Creator Fred Seibert[1] ordered thirteen full-length episodes for the show, which is also known as Oh Yeah! Cartoons fourth season.

Unlike Oh Yeah!, there is no host. On January 10, 2006, ASIFA-Hollywood hosted an advance screening of six shorts as well as a question and answer session with the filmmakers at the Nicktoons Studios in Burbank, California. Two of the shorts were selected to become television series and one of the shorts was selected to become a web series. Those shorts were Adventure Time, The Bravest Warriors, and Fanboy. Adventure Time began airing on April 5, 2010 on Cartoon Network. The Bravest Warriors, under the name Bravest Warriors, began airing on November 8, 2012 on Cartoon Hangover's YouTube channel. Fanboy, under the name Fanboy and Chum Chum, began airing on November 7, 2009 on Nickelodeon.

Despite not being picked up by any networks yet as of 2013, the shorts "Teapot", "Kyle + Rosemary", "Mind the Kitty" and "Hero Heights" have grown successful through the internet by being spun-off to different merchandises such as video games, artwork, fans, websites and online games.

In late March 2013, the show finally returned to a daytime airing slot at 10:00-11:00 am after only being aired two times a month at 5:00 am for a long time on Nicktoons.
