This week in the world of cartoons, rebel Saw Gerrera becomes a major player in the Star Wars Universe, Starscream begs for mercy on Transformers: Prime, and we see three tales of Halloween terror on Regular Show!
Ultimate Spider-Man and Gravity Falls are off this week, while DC Nation continues it's unusually timed hiatus.
As always - minor spoilers ahead!
Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes – "Operation Galactic Storm"
This episode of Avengers: EMH takes the 1992 19-part comic book crossover Operation Galactic Storm and condenses it into 30 minutes. Thank the deity of your choice.
The Kree are looking to create a wormhole linking our solar system and their homeworld, an action that could destroy the Earth. Captain Marvel pairs up with the Avengers to stop the Kree, while comic aficionados will notice the Abigail Brand of S.W.O.R.D. popping up in this episode.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars – "The Soft War"
As the Onderon rebel saga continues, new character Saw Gerrera comes to the forefront, destroying an AAT Battletank with Jedi-like efficiency in this clip.
Later in the episode, Gerrera seeks out the true king of Onderon and attempts to save him from imminent assassination.
Regular Show – "Terror Tales of the Park II"
This week's episode of Regular Show brought three tales of Halloween horror - one told by Mordecai in which he accidentally kills his uncle, another by Margaret that features a party bus that adds decades to the lives of its riders, while the final told by Benson and involves wallpapering. As someone that just moved, I can tell you that the final tale is the scariest of all.
Watch your favorite Regular Show characters descend into old age in this clip.
Tron: Uprising – "The Reward"
Tron: Uprising, the cartoon with the most bizarre airing schedule known to mankind, returns this week. In this episode, Beck and his friends watch Occupation members arrest a program they believe to be The Renegade.
The coolest part of this episode might be the four-seat light roadster offered as a reward for the capture of The Renegade.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – "I Think His Name is Baxter Stockman"
The Ninja Turtles are looking forward to a night out on the town with April.
One man — Baxter Stockman — interrupts their "date" as he attacks with the aid of a mechanized suit of armor.
Transformers: Prime – "Patch"
Starscream is back on the side of the Decepticons! Or so we think...
In this clip, Starscream bows before Megatron and begs for his former position, but Dreadwing now stands in his way.
Adventure Time- "I Remember You"
The Ice King kicks off this episode by doing a bizarre Ziggy Stardust-esque song about his penguin Gunter.
When his initial attempts fail, he goes to where every musician goes for inspiration — their tortured past.
After a series of failures, the Ice King seeks out help from rock star Marceline.
Marceline is still angry at the Ice King, leading Marceline to create a song about Ice King's insanity, which you can hear in this clip.
Dragons: Riders of Berk – "Dragon Flower"
Trader Johann arrives in Berk looking to let go of some of his wares, including the ink from a giant squid, a treat Toothless desires.
An extremely contagious illness falls upon the dragons in this episode (and this clip); a disease that is likely the result of an item left by Trader Johann.
