See Metalocalypse Pictures

Friday April 25, 2014


Metalocalypse is definitely a cartoon for adults, featuring blood, gore, suggested sex and some pretty raw vocalizing on the part of Nathan Explosion. Catch it on Adult Swim if you're interested in seeing bands like Metallica skewered in this animated comedy. In the meantime, enjoy these pictures of Dethklok at their gothic dining table, their album cover and the band members.

Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law

One of the first cartoons to be part of Adult Swim's line-up was Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law. Starring a winged former superhero and his ragtag team of co-workers, Harvey Birdman started out as a parody of the original Hanna Barbera cartoon, but soon began weaving its own stories using those same characters. Guess which late-night TV host voiced a major character? Read the Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law show guide to find out.

Gaia and the PlaneteersJust in time for Earth Day, Captain Planet and the Planeteers is available on DVD.

But when their enemy is too strong, together they can summon Captain Planet. Captain Planet is a mix of '70s style superhero cartoon and green public service announcement.
