Regular Show Season 5 and Uncle Grandpa Premiere September 2

Uncle Grandpa finally comes to Cartoon Network Monday, September 2. The eclectic show was initially a short made years ago for Cartoon Network's never seen other than secretly online Cartoon institute. It led to creator,  Pete Browngardt's Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, a hard to like series.

"Joining Uncle Grandpa are Belly Bag, his right-hand man who happens to be his fanny pack, voiced by Eric Bauza (Ben 10 Omniverse), Mr. Gus, a dinosaur person who Uncle Grandpa rescued from extinction when he was merely a tiny egg, voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson (Green Lantern: The Animated Series), Pizza Steve, an egotistical slice of pizza in sunglasses voiced by Adam Devine (Workaholics, Pitch Perfect) and a realistic flying tiger powered by rainbow propulsion named Giant Realistic Flying Tiger. Together, this eclectic bunch is there to aid Uncle Grandpa on his various journeys, whether by providing a voice of reason or encouraging even more fantastical adventure."

The added sidekicks sound a bit annoying, but even the next work from the creator of Cowboy Bebop threw them into his next show Space Dandy.

Here's a cool promo item I received as press

Regular Show Season 5 begins September 2 as well with an episode of Mordecai and Rigby trying to get Margaret's jacket back to her at college.

"New episodes of Regular Show will also feature a special Halloween episode, a 30-minute Thanksgiving special Regular Show style, and an illuminating glimpse into Skips' past."
