Hulu and Turner Broadcasting today announced an extensive multi-year deal bringing Cartoon Network and Adult Swim with select current and upcoming series from TNT and TBS. That’s right folks, we’re talking full prior seasons of Aqua Teen, Dexter’s Laboratory, Robot Chicken, Adventure Time, Regular Show, and our personal favorite The Venture Bros. All of these amazing shows will be available to stream exclusively for Hulu subscribers.

Throughout the agreement, Hulu will obtain exclusive SVOD (Subscription Video On-Demand) rights to select upcoming series that will launch on TNT, TBS, Adult Swim and Cartoon Network in the years to come. Additionally, according to the press release issued by Turner, “all Cartoon Network series will be available to stream ad-free in the Hulu Kids environment.”

“This deal with Hulu demonstrates the power of Turner Broadcasting’s branded networks and the high demand for our programming in the marketplace,” said David Levy, president of Turner Broadcasting. “This is a great opportunity to grow the reach of the networks’ original programming and complements our strategy of utilizing multiple platforms – including SVOD – to drive sampling, introduce new viewers to our content and give current fans the opportunity to explore and enjoy Turner’s new and existing series in a branded environment.”

Other Programs Include:

  • The Last Ship
  • Murder in the First
  • Rick and Morty
  • Black Jesus
  • The Amazing World of Gumball
  • Steven Universe,
  • Over the Garden Wall
  • Clarence
  • Tim and Eric Awesome Show
  • Great Job!
  • Sealab 2021
  • The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. 

“The addition of multiple titles from Cartoon Network represents a significant step forward in continuing to build a strong programming offering for the kids audience on Hulu,” said Craig Erwich, Senior Vice President and Head of Content, Hulu.  “The adult animation series from Adult Swim, as well as the additional series from TNT and TBS, are a perfect addition to our current offering.”

Still no word yet when Hulu subscribers can binge watch the hell out of their favorite shows from Adult Swim, but you better believe we’ll have a Venture Bros. extravaganza in Randy’s dungeon. Err… basement.
