Here's your AS April Fools prank for this year, six hours of a new Perfect Hair Forever esque show titled "Gemusetto Machu Picchu".

Also being simulcasted on Adult Swim Canada. What a way to launch a channel.

These fake anime parodies are getting tiresome.

It would have been way more interesting if they had a Rick and Morty episode directed by Masaaki Yuasa. Like what had been done with Adventure Time a number of years back.

Oh dear lord, I think this really is 6 full hours of content, not just an hour repeating over and over.

There is no way they made 6 hours worth of this...this is not possible...my mind can't take it...how on earth...

Well... 4x6 = 24 segments... could be ... 2 seasons worth... maybe three seasons worth of 4 or four seasons worth of 6... three seasons of 8? Eight seasons of 3? Lot of possibilities. (If it's an 11m series. I started tuning in at 1:16am EDT.

Couldn't be too different than when CN ran all 20 first season episodes of Summer Camp Island last year. Just never made any announcements for this one for such an event.

What I'm seeing from this... it's ... weird. [as] weird. That means it's okay. However... I don't believe this is for me. (sorry [as]!)

It's literally 6 1-hour long episodes. I was kinda joking with my above comment though, but it is kinda appalling that they made 6 hours worth of tennis anime parody just for an April Fool's joke. But, it's Adult Swim so why am I even questioning this. :p

6 TV hours worth of filler if they need it in the future ~~ at least they'd be prepared. Can't exactly see this earlier prime time, but would be a shoo-in for DVR theater.

And wow, a mock action figure ad for this show with kids.

I find myself fast-forwarding through the main story parts on my DVR. I find the experimental segments more interesting.

Well, apparently the last chapter of this only ran for 45 minutes. Right now, the scheduled "Off The Air" episode "Paradise" is on (actually just wrapped up as I write this). AS Canada is getting an episode of NTSF:SD:SUV:: instead, as I learned through a Twitter discussion I've been having with someone.

EDIT: I believe the NTSF episode is "Extra Terrorist-rial," based on info I've been given via Twitter.

Oh, wow... "Kill the Alligator and Run"... That was a really bad episode of The Simpsons. I still wouldn't call it the worst of the worst, but damn... That chain gang scene with Maggie (A BABY) and the other children, handcuffed together, the insanity just kept going and going...
Enjoy my new anime superhero pfp!

@I Am Nickelodeon 1 The Futon Critic has updated with the rest of the Nickelodeon premieres for this December.
Recently I read an article claiming that Disney's Dave the Barbarian "hadn't aged well" because it "couldn't compare to the new He-Man and She-Ra shows". Um, DtB was an absurdist comedy akin to the likes of Rocky & Bullwinkle, dum-dum. Way to out that you've never seen the show. Why exactly is this person expecting serious action fare from a show called Dave the Barbarian??

Very insightful essay that speaks well on my sentiments regarding the MCU and also episodic storytelling in general where status quo is king.
