Animated Favorites Reign Supreme on Adult Swim

"Aqua TV Show Show" and "Squidbillies" Triumphantly Return Sunday, August 11th

Fan Favorite Series Turn Up the Volume with Top Artists Covering Opening Themes

Adult Swim announced today their quintessential animated comedy shows Aqua TV Show Show, created by Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro and Squidbillies, created by Willis and Jim Fortier, are both back for laugh-packed seasons. All-new episodes premiere on Sunday, August 11 at midnight and 12:15 a.m. (ET/PT), respectively, on Adult Swim.

To mark their 12th and 7th seasons, both returning series will feature top musical artists spanning genres from classic Americana to "flower punk." To kick off the new season of Aqua TV Show Show, Flying Lotus will be covering the new theme for the long-running series. In typical Early Cuyler fashion, one new artist covering their theme song was not enough for Squidbillies, they needed nine of them! Every Sunday, audiences will hear the Squidbillies theme performed by a wide range of top musical artists including southern rock icons Lynyrd Skynyrd and Atlanta's own Black Lips.

For well over a decade, Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro have electrified the entertainment world with the antics of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Meatwad, Master Shake, and Frylock have been able to revive interest in the once-dying medium of televised cable entertainment, becoming household names in the process. The powder keg that is Aqua Teen has ignited two other incarnations of the multi-billion dollar franchise: Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1, a hard-boiled detective series that redefined the genre, which in turn sired Aqua Something You Know Whatever, an edgy, coming-of-age romp inspired by text message conversations found on reddit. To date, the Aqua-verse (Aqua Teen universe) is shown in over 500 countries, and has been translated into 3,000 different languages across 3 planets.

Aqua TV Show Show is the latest offering of 'lightning in a bottle' from Willis and Maiellaro. Their absurdist brew is a virtual who's-who of voice-acting all-stars (Dave Willis, Carey Means), with an ensemble cast sure to delight even the harshest of television critics. Aqua TV Show Show finds our favorite fast-food trio starting a bakery for dogs, hoping to make some serious dough in Manhattan's upscale 'Tribeca' neighborhood. There won't be a dry eye in the audience when Frylock's secret recipe is stolen by a rival bakery.

Adult Swim is also teaming up with the global artist community Threadless, who will host an online t-shirt design challenge beginning August 8. Artists can submit designs inspired by Aqua Teen Hunger Force through August 29. The winning t-shirts will be sold on Threadless.com, and two artists will receive grand prizes including cash and a unique Adult Swim prize pack. Details about submissions for the t-shirt design challenge are coming soon.

Immediately following Aqua TV Show Show will be America's fourth favorite animated family, The Cuylers. Season seven of Squidbillies features ten exciting new episodes! This time around, Rusty becomes a drone pilot, Early is proclaimed space king, Sheriff runs for re-election, and the ghost of Early's father returns with a vengeance. Squidbillies is written and produced by Dave Willis and Jim Fortier.
