Cartoon Network revs up its Saturday morning slate with new episodes during its hit and beloved action block, including Ben 10: Omniverse, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and DC Nation beginning January 5th. Cartoon Network Studios' original series, Ben 10 Omniverse kicks off the Saturday morning line-up at 9:00 a.m. ET with guest star Aziz Ansari (Parks and Recreation), followed by the special 100th episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars at 9:30 a.m. ET. The highly anticipated return of DC Nation rounds out the morning at 10:00 a.m. ET, featuring new stories, including episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice: Invasion.
First up, Ben 10: Omniverse welcomes Aziz Ansari as Billy Billions, Ben's childhood rival, in the episode "Arrested Development." Ben and Rook see their troubles grow as they are literally downsized when Billy Billions traps them in their own pre-pubescent bodies. The pint-sized heroes face giant challenges and must stop the evil Robots from Dimension 12 and save Bellwood.
Then momentous season five of Lucasfilm Animation's Star Wars: The Clone Wars ushers in the 100th episode of the series, "Missing in Action." In a nearly vacant town on a strange planet, the intrepid members of D-Squad discover Gregor, a clone commando who has lost his memory, and is toiling away as a dishwasher. The all-droid squad and their gruff leader must help Gregor regain his memory so they can steal a heavily guarded shuttle and return to the Republic.
Warner Bros. Animation's DC Nation programming block comes soaring back, when Green Lantern: The Animated Series goes retro-futuristic when it starts the block with the episode "Steam Lantern." After being blasted by the Anti-Monitor, Hal finds himself in a steampunk world. Young Justice: Invasion answers lingering questions from the past season with "Before the Dawn," when Blue Beetle, Miss Martian and the team go on a covert mission to rescue some of their own, uncovering shocking secrets and devastating truths.
