If you haven’t watched any Cartoon Network outside of Adult Swim lately, I would highly suggest you check out The Regular Show.
While Cartoon Network has definitely had its fair share of high quality cartoonage, none has truly incorporated music like the crazy creation of JG Quintel, featuring a blue jay named Mordecai and a racoon named Rigby.
The Regular Show is filled with musical misadventure with an homage to Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, where future versions of main characters Mordecai and Rigby come back to the past to teach themselves how to rock before their first gig, and an episode where the characters battle the dreaded catchy song they used to like when they were in Junior High.
And just when you thought the show was just for kids, Tyler the Creator and Childish Gambino made a guest appearance in an episode featuring a rap battle and Shakespearean costumes. A must see. Check out the episode here.
There has also been music created by the developers of the show, like “The Hummus Rap,” as well as some great use of classic songs by the likes of 90s alternative rockers Filter and 70s southern rockers Mountain.
Whether you enjoy watching cartoons or not, check out this playlist, then make sure to check out The Regular Show on Cartoon Network.
