Random! Cartoons is a Nickelodeon animation showcase. Like Oh Yeah! Cartoons, it was created by Fred Seibert and produced by Frederator Studios[1] and Nickelodeon Animation Studios for the Nicktoons, and was the fourth of their cartoon "laboratories".[2] It premiered on December 6, 2008 and ended on August 14, 2009. The series aired in reruns on Nicktoons until August 2014.

Description[edit]

Creator Fred Seibert[3] ordered thirteen full-length episodes (39 seven minute shorts) for the show, which is also known as Oh Yeah! Cartoons fourth season.[4]

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 as a full-length series on April 5, 2010 on Cartoon Network.[5] The Bravest Warriors, under the new name Bravest Warriors, began airing on November 8, 2012 on Cartoon Hangover.[6] Fanboy, under the new name Fanboy & Chum Chum, began airing as a full-length series on November 7, 2009 on Nickelodeon.

In late March 2013, the show 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.
