This week in the world of cartoons, we are treated to an amazing Archer season finale that blends two of the best cartoons of the past decade. We also get a very comic book-friendly episode of Ultimate Spider-Man as well a pillow fort vacation on Adventure Time. Gravity Falls is off this week, but will return next week. As always - minor spoilers ahead!

Ultimate Spider-Man – “The Man-Wolf”

Spidey…in…space!!! Spider-Man, Nova, and Iron Fist travel to the moon to aid John Jameson, the astronaut son of Peter Parker’s boss J. Jonah Jameson.


John has a super-powered secret derived from ancient moon artifacts (this is beginning to sound like an io9 secret history article…), however, and it’s a hairy one.

Transformers: Prime – "Rebellion”

This week Team Prime is still on the rebound, but the Autobots garner enough forces to launch a counter attack on the Decepticon citadel. Will the Decepticons finally release Predaking to face off against Prime’s forces?


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – "Enemy of My Enemy"

Karai is now fully aware of the threat Kraang poses, so the Shredder-follower attempts to team-up with Leonardo and the TMNT.


Adventure Time – "Puhoy"

I loved a good pillow fort growing up, and Finn does too. Upset after he told a joke that the Flame Princess didn't like, Finn heads into a pillow fort to start a new life.


I wonder if bitcoins work as currency at Taco Bells in pillow fort land – if they do, I’m following Finn.

Regular Show – "Limousine Lunchtime"

Some days you eat a meatball sub in the car, and on rare occasions you eat the Italian Sloppy Joe in a limousine. Mordecai and Rigby do the latter in this episode, a limo the duo were tasked to clean.


When lunch gets a little messy, Mord and Rigs end up in a limousine demolition derby in hopes of winning a limo to replace the one they sullied.

Archer – "Sea Tunt: Part 2"

Captain Murpy & Sealab are threatening to release a number of VX missiles onto the world, leading Archer, Lana, Cyril, and Ray to go undercover as a television crew in Sealab. Lana reveals a rather big secret, but I’m not spoiling it here.


Pam also gives a nice discussion of TEOTWAWKI, and my you should include ethanol in your bug-out bag. Archer clips can be a little blue (to steal an ol’ fashioned radio term), so consider them NSFW for you Saturday office dwellers.

If they tie the show in with the venture brothers next season I will be a happy girl. Think of it, that would make bobs burgers, sea lab, the venture brothers (and by extension, Johnny Quest) all exist in the same world. Frankly, that's a world i want to live in. lol!
