Starting in 2010 and to relative little fanfare, two shows of immense creativity came out of nowhere and seemed to propose that cartoons return to a time when imagination was king and simple hand animation wasn't a sign of being behind the times. The shows in questions were Cartoon Network's Adventure Time with Finn & Jake and Regular Show, the former of which we covered just recently. And while Adventure Time took off rather quickly thanks to its whimsical fantasy setting with nerdy jokes, Regular Show didn't burst into the pop culture consciousness quite as effortlessly. But it deserved to, and more recently it's begun to get the attention it deserves. The first two seasons of the show are now out on Blu-ray, and they make for an enjoyable introduction to the strangely hilarious misadventures of Mordecai the Blue Jay (voiced by series creator J.G. Quintel) and Rigby the Raccoon (William Salyers).

Mondo’s made no secret of the fact that they’re really, really, really into Pendleton Ward and Cartoon Network’s blockbuster animated series, Adventure Time. Last year, they held a special marathon screening for the series at the Alamo Drafthouse (complete with an Adventure Time-themed menu, which gave birth do the Rainicorn-colored hot dogs that still making regular appearances in Limited Paper’s most terrifying nightmares), released a print to commemorate the event, and opened an Adventure Time-themed gallery show. Sporadic Adventure Time-themed releases were dropped in the months that followed, often enough that rumors circulated that a second At-themed show was headed to the Mondo Gallery. And—as some of you may have already heard—the rumor’s now been confirmed: a second Adventure Time-themed showcase will open towards the end of this month…and this time Ward’s series is bringing J.G.

Without announcing a platform or the upcoming game (although the 3Ds/DS is a good bet), D3 announced that their "Regular Show" adaptation would take slacker heroes Mordecai (he's the six foot tall bluejay) and Rigby (his diminutive and hyper best friend) to an all-new park. Presumably, surreality will ensue.
D3's platformer/light-rpg based on "Adventure Time" was very successful at evoking that hugely popular animated series but its combat suffered from bouts of repetitiveness and some of the humor was lost without the voice work of the cast. Like "Adventure Time," "Regular Show" is very dependent on its voice actors (including series creator J.G. Quintel and Mark Hamill) to sell the manic comedy set in a public park beset with wizards, rock gods, »

The Cartoon Network series Regular Show has been a hit with viewers ever since it debuted back in 2010. These animated adventures follow a blue jay named Mordecai (J.G. Quintel) and the raccoon Rigby (William Salyers), who have mundane jobs as groundskeepers at a local park.
For fans who need a regular dose of Regular Show, the network has released the Regular Show: Party Pack on DVD as a follow-up to the Regular Show - The Best DVD in the World *At this Moment in Time and Regular Show: The Slack Pack. This latest disc contains 16 episodes from all three seasons that have some sort of party theme that Mordecai and Rigby come across.
I recently had the chance to speak with series creator, and the voice of Mordecai, J.G. Quintel about this Party Pack DVD set, which is currently available at retailers everywhere. »
