There’s a new original series coming to Cartoon Network!

Cartoon Network Studios grows its global comedy slate with the greenlight of its latest original, The Fungies!, Stephen Neary’s prehistoric comedy that will explore Fungietown through the wondrous and whimsical quests of Seth, one of the town’s many young mushroom inhabitants. Also, additional season pickups of its originals Craig of the Creek and Victor and Valentino add to Cartoon Network Studios’ fast-growing programming roster of authentic storytelling for kids around the world.

Following the life of Craig and his two best friends, Kelsey and JP, Craig of the Creek’s third season promises more offbeat adventures from the everyday group of neighborhood friends. Meanwhile, the mythically adventurous Victor and Valentino continues with another season of myths, mysteries and mayhem. Victor and Valentino received its first Imagen Award nomination in the category of Best Children’s Programming for its creativity and talent that reflect the mission of the Imagen Foundation. 

Definitely shows to watch out for! 

The Fungies! was developed as part of Cartoon Network Studios’ international Artists Program, and introduces Seth, a lovable mushroom kid who lives in prehistoric Fungietown and loves science and discovery. In his search for the ultimate adventure, Seth often finds himself causing hilarious problems for the utopia and its colorful inhabitants—but as he comes up with a solution, Seth always finds a newfound emotional understanding. The Fungies! is expected to debut next year.

Craig’s quest to map the Creek leads him further into unexplored territory in season three of Craig of the Creek. Craig and his two best friends, Kelsey and JP, meet new Creek Kids, uncover more clues to the Creek’s ancient past and encounter more dangers from the nefarious Other Side of the Creek. Annie Award-nominee and Common Sense Seal for TV honoree, the show’s suburban wilderness explorations are brought to life by a crew that meshes their own diverse experiences into an imaginative series where children rule over tree forts and bike ramps.

The second season of Victor and Valentino returns next year for more myths, mysteries, and mayhem. The Lonely Haunts Club gets back together as rivals Charlene and Pineapple join Victor and Valentino to hunt for ghosts around Monte Macabre. Victor and Valentino discover the world of the dead inside Monte Macabre, helping some of them to resolve old business and cross over to the Underworld. The series first premiered in the United States and Latin America simultaneously earlier this year and is inspired by creator Molano’s fascination with mythology and Mesoamerican culture. Molano was also discovered through the studio’s Global Artists Program known for creating a pipeline of diverse and emerging talent. The first season premieres on Cartoon Network in August, including a sneak peek in July on the Cartoon Network Watch and Play app.
