This week sees Simon Pegg voice Dengar on Clone Wars, DC Nation kick off with the return of Young Justice, Orion Pax discover his past on Transformers: Prime, and Wolverine pop in on Marvel Anime: Blade - Minor spoilers ahead!
Star Wars: The Clone Wars – "Bounty"
This episode begins with an awesome cantina scene with Boba Fett recruiting a team of bounty hunters including Dengar (voiced by Simon Pegg), Bossk, and Asajj Ventress. The bounty hunters pull off a heist and fight Kage warriors on a moving tram, with Boba mysteriously disappearing at the end.
This second clip is particularly Dengar heavy so you can catch a peek of Pegg. We will definitely see more of Boba Fett as the season reaches its conclusion, but will we see Fett obtain his trademark suit of Mandalorian armor?
Green Lantern: TAS – "Beware My Power"
This episode aired earlier as part of November's Green Lantern: The Animated Series one-hour special and it kicks off the first week of DC Nation. Enjoy this clip showing Hal and Kilowog meet (and battle!) the Red Lanterns for the first time.
Young Justice – "Misplaced"
Young Justice moves to Saturday mornings! This episode doesn't air until later today as a part of the first installment of the DC Nation block on Cartoon Network, but enjoy this clip from the beginning of the episode featuring the Jack Kirby created Klarion the Witch Boy!
Marvel Anime: Blade – "Claws and Blades"
Wolverine and Blade team up! This episode sees Lucius get axed, but he just keeps talking after getting sliced in half. Deacon Frost continues to work from the shadows to overthrow the High Council, with his actions building as the series nears its finale. This clip shows off the inevitable fight that occurs whenever two superheroes meet. These guys should text ahead of arrival.
Mary Shelley's Frankenhole – "Victor Hugo's Identity!"
Today is the creation day/birthday of Frankenstein's Monster and all he wants is to know where he came from. Not the birds and the bees stuff, but his actual parts – his arms and legs and whatnot. Victor sets off on a trip to reanimate his monster's dead family members and make his monster happy in this episode.
Archer – "Crossing Over"
Archer is extremely hung over and suffering a minor bought of amnesia after the wake of a fellow ISIS agent and a wild night with Pam. Clad in shame, Archer tries to hide his affection for Pam while at the same time being unable to resist her charm. Burt Reynolds is still dating Archer's mom too.
Regular Show – "Eggscellent"
Jokes about action stars blowing up school buses and once in a millennium eating challenges – I love this show. Who will eat an omelet containing a dozen eggs in an hour and take home a coveted trucker hat?
Transformers Prime – "Orion Pax, Part 2"
Starscream, the deceiving little Decepticon, leaks info to the Autobots, who seek to return to Cybertron and learn from Vector Sigma the secret to restoring Optimus Prime's memories. In the meantime, Orion Pax, delves into the Decepticon databanks and learns that he is Optimus Prime.
My Little Pony/Dan Vs. Crossover – "Dan Vs. Pinkie Pie"
After the Pinkie Pie songfest last week, a viewing of this clip pitting two of The Hub's best (and extremely different) shows against each other is in order. Watch Dan freak out after Pinkie Pie bedazzles his car.
