Decided to whip up a last minute promo for Real Date! I have no idea what’s happening on tumblr for this episode. Try to enjoy it cause it’s me and Minty’s last one!
Now you know what episode this is from!

Anonymous said: What is up with the Cartoon Network 'hiatuses'? Can you please explain why they do this, who makes the decision, & if you the storyboarders have any input on why and how they do this? As much as we like Regular Show and many other of Cartoon Network's shows, it is upsetting to not know when the next date of a new episode will air as well as find the titles and descriptions out. Also, where is the best source to find out the upcoming episode airdates and titles/descriptions? CN is slow sometimes.
A lot of reasons. Maybe CN doesn’t want to burn through all the episodes too fast. Maybe they want to save some episodes for later.
The storyboarding staff is pretty hands off on any decision making on that end. Most of the time we get the airing dates on the CN website or from you guys on tumblr believe it or not.
We’re just artists! Not marketers or program schedulers. I’ve been to CN HQ in Atlanta and they have a huge whiteboard with the CN schedule plus ALL the schedules of our competitors and their ratings, advertisers, etc etc. They use science and math and sorcery to figure out where everything goes.

We are about 2/3s in. Lots of really good ones coming up!
Anonymous said: Ever happened in Regular Show that a scene, although it has been animated, ended up being deleted anyway? Like in, for example, Sven Hoëk of The Ren & Stimpy Show.
There was a segment about 2-3 mins in the beginning of “Replaced” that made it all the way past the pitches & S&P to final animation.
Somebody made the decision after it was done that this segment was way not cool to show to kids and it was re-storyboarded and animated at great expense. I’ve seen it and my personal opinion is that it was incredibly mild, but there ya go.

I’ll keep trying to put in weird Mordecai faces until the day RS ceases to exist but your comment is v. passive agressive imo

Good ear! Yeah, pretty much. We had “Just Can’t Get Enough” in the animatic.
So sad this joke got cut
Not gonna lie— this one was pretty draining, with pretty much every character in every shot, a few songs, an acapella version of Keeping it Cool that took FOREVER to record, and one of the most complicated mixes we ever had to deal with. See more, including more Thomas, a completely cut montage, and weird Mordecai faces on the storyboard on scribd!
