Harry Shearer, the voice of Ned Flanders, Mr. Burns, Smithers, Principal Skinner, and Lenny has left the Simpsons after decades with the show.  Reportedly related to issues with "back-end and merchandising," Shearer announced his departure from the show on Twitter:



It seems like his departure is not on terrible terms, but came down to a contract issue limiting Shearer's ability to lend his talents to other projects.  
Here's hoping the show can find a perfect new voice for Ned and Mr. Burns; it certainly won't be the same without Shearer.

Viscious Cycle has announced a new game based on the popular animated series 'Adventure Time.' The game is described as "an action-oriented twist on the graphic adventure genre..." And it will be focus on Finn and Jake solving mathematical mysteries in the land of Ooo. 

Lets just hope Viscious Cycle does justice to 'Adventure Time,' because the last game was just snoozeville.

Cartoon Network has announced plans to reboot The Powerpuff Girls as a new animated series coming next year.  

From the press release:

Slated for a 2016 launch, The Powerpuff Girls reboot will include an all-new television series produced by Cartoon Network Studios and a full licensing program slated to roll out across all regions. One of the network’s most enduring original series, The Powerpuff Girls, which debuted on Cartoon Network in 1998, earned two Emmy® Awards, five nominations and countless animation honors throughout its 78-episode run. The Powerpuff Girls centers on three sugar-coated superheroes -- Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup -- whose mission in life alternates between going to school, fighting crime, winning at hopscotch and saving the world before bedtime. Emmy® and BAFTA award winner Nick Jennings (Adventure Time) is on board as executive producer.


Are you excited to see the girls back in action?

Some time during season 5, Pendleton Ward quit being the showrunner of Adventure Time and didn't tell any of us. In an interview in Rolling Stone, Pendleton Ward discusses his decision, which has up until this point not been common knowledge:

To spend that extra energy and time you don't have, to make something that's worth making, to make it awesome, wears you out. It's a beast of a show. And the more popular it gets, the more the ancillary things – like the merchandise and games and everything – keep getting bigger.

I quit because it was driving me nuts. For me, having quality of life outweighed the need to control this project and make it great all the time.



But before you panic, he's still part of the show. Though he's left his post as showrunner, Ward remains one of the show's writers and storyboard artists, so we'll still get a look into his marvelously strange brain. whew

After his comments sparked fears that Studio Ghibli was done for, Toshio Suzuki clarified on NHK's Asa Ichi that the company isn't shutting down at all:

We're changing the way we make (animation). We wanted to make a dream company. We thought we would make what suited us and not make what didn't suit us. We were able to realize (that dream) to some extent and we're very happy about that. But now we're at a point where we've got to think about what we'll do next.

He didn't go into detail about what that means, but at least we know they aren't packing up shop. Suzuki also revealed that Miyazaki may come out of retirement again, but so far only to make a short film to be featured at the Ghibli Museum.
