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

Legacy[edit]

Frederator Studios has persisted in the tradition of surfacing independent animation voices. They've started several cartoon shorts "incubators" featuring new talent, characters, and series including What a Cartoon! (Cartoon Network, 1995), Oh Yeah! Cartoons (Nickelodeon, 1998), The Meth Minute 39 (Channel Frederator, 2008),[7] Too Cool! Cartoons (Cartoon Hangover, 2012), and GO! Cartoons (Cartoon Hangover, 2016).[8] These laboratories have spun off notable series like Dexter’s Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo, Cow & Chicken, Courage the Cowardly Dog, The Fairly OddParents, Nite Fite, Fanboy & Chum Chum, Adventure Time, Bravest Warriors, Rocket Dog, and Bee and PuppyCat.
