12 shows have been presented and in my personal opinion, these are the ones I'm most curious to check out.Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated: yet another series featuring those meddling teenagers and their goofy dog. Seems to be a throw-back to their roots with modern cartoony-cartoonists Spike Brandt and Tony Cervone acting as supervising producers.Young Justice: Teen superheroes have to start somewhere. Various young heroes of the DC variety prove they have what it takes to join the ranks of the Justice League.MAD: The popular spoof magazine finally gets animated in several styles in order to poke fun at almost everything that makes up pop culture.Sym-Bionic Titan: Genndy Tartakovsky's return to animation features alien teenagers and their giant robots. Should be awesome.
And the most-anticipated series I've been looking forward too:The Looney Tunes Show: Those wacky Warner Bros characters are now living the suburban lifestyle in half-hour adventures made up with musical segments(?) and CG Roadrunner shorts. In the long run, this seems like a terrible idea for classic cartoon stars but at least it's a step up from Baby Looney Tunes and Loonatics. Supervising producers Spike Brandt and Tony Cervone have handled the Tunes well-enough before, so this show could live up to it's roots. For today's standards that is.

Yes, I can't wait to see a full episode of 'The Looney Tune Show'. Although being made by Cervone and Brandt is the only good thing surrounding the project so far.

Also The pilot episode of 'Mystery Incorporated' was aired on CN a while back. The animation and designs lean slightly towards a more graphic look but the ideas left in the pilot leave me wanting to see more.
