Cartoon Networks Hit Series Regular Show is Back for a Not-So-Regular Sixth Season Premiering Thursday, October 9 at 7:30 p.m. (ET/ PT)

Your favorite golf cart driving, video game playing, procrastinating dudes are back Thursday, October 9 at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) with a brand new season packed with fist pumping moments! At the close of Season five, Mordecai (voiced by series creator JG Quintel) and CJ (voiced by Linda Cardellini) went on an epic “real date” that ended in death-defying explosions and a kiss. Season six promises to see their relationship continue and in the premiere episode, “Maxin’ and Relaxin,’” Mordecai takes CJ to meet his embarrassing parents (voiced by Katey Sagal and Ed Begley Jr.). As lollipop-shaped optimist Pops would say, “Oh my!” Regular Show’s annual “Terror Tales” Halloween special will be extra spooky this year with scary stories told in a way only our guys from the park can tell them; creepy and hilarious!  Expect twists, turns, surprises, a wedding and a bunch of entertaining half-hour specials.  Wait, a wedding?  Yes, a wedding!

Created by JG Quintel and produced by Cartoon Network Studios, the Emmy®-winning series Regular Show, follows the lives of best friends Mordecai (a six-foot-tall blue jay) and Rigby (a hyperactive raccoon) whose lazy afternoon adventures always seem to be interrupted by zombies and misadventures with their gang of friends Benson, Pops, Muscle Man, Hi-Five Ghost, Skips, Thomas, Margaret and Eileen or sometimes even dealing with Death himself.

Packed with pop culture references and the strange and funniest of characters, this animated sitcom appeals to fans of all ages. Across an average week, Regular Show reaches 17,377,000 total viewers ages 2+ and boasts over 5.8 million likes on the Regular Show Facebook page.  Also, “Ride 'Em Rigby” was the #1 Kids gaming app on Apple iTunes when it debuted in 2013.
