In “Butt Dial” Mordecai accidentally leaves an embarrassing voicemail on Margaret’s phone that tells her how he really feels.
To get hearts pumping even more, Regular Show fans are receiving a very special Valentine, Cartoon Network announced today the fourth season of the hit series is in production. Look for season four to premiere later this year, yeeeauuhhhh!
Created by JG Quintel and produced by Cartoon Network Studios, Regular Show features Mordecai and Rigby, two groundskeepers at a park whose attempts to escape their everyday boredom take them to fantastical extremes. 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 their co-workers and friends.
Since its premiere in September 2010, Regular Show has become an instant hit with its first and second seasons on Monday nights, ranking #1 in its time period among all key boy demos across all of television according to Nielsen Media Research. Just months after its premiere, the series was also nominated for a Primetime Emmy®.
