Disney XD will air Warner Bros. Animation “Right Now Kapow” beginning September 19th

Right Now Kapow, an all-new original animated sketch comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation, will premiere on Disney XD on Monday, September 19th at 9:00 p.m. (EDT). This marks the first original series from Warner Bros. Animation to be produced with Disney XD.

Right Now Kapow was created by Justin Becker (“MAD,” “Adult Swim Infomercials”) and Marly Halpern-Graser (“MAD,” “DC Nation”) who both serve as executive producers with Sam Register (“Teen Titans Go!”). Mark Marek (“MAD”) serves as producer with Devin Flynn (“Y’all So Stupid”) as supervising director. Here’s our first look:

Delightfully silly, weird and frenetic, each half-hour episode includes various sketches and jokes showcasing the show’s colorful cast of characters – Dog, Moon, Ice Cream, Candy, Diamond and Plant:

Viewers will be treated to three consecutive new episodes that will air Monday, September 19 through Wednesday, September 21. The episode rollout is:

Monday, September 19:
“Victory Speech / Magic Chair” – A series of monsters fall down. A woman drops her pizza. A pharaoh puts friendship to the test. A reporter meets a giraffe. A teacher is rewarded for her years of service. A wizard throws a dinner party.

Tuesday, September 20:
“Bash Master / All’s Well” – A wrestler makes a career change. A chin is large. A woman claps her hooks. A bowler doesn’t know what she’s “pin” for. An elf and a princess weigh their options. A tricky wishing well ruins a laptop.

Wednesday, September 21:
“R&B / The Sphinx” – A singer has brown eyes. A werewolf is not a mind reader. A little girl is the worst one of all. A garbage truck puts on a show. A party is much cooler than anticipated. A sphinx is such a drama queen.

    I can sort of see why this didn’t make it to CN.

    But they could’ve at least aired it on Adult Swim even if it looks bad.

  • They don’t really air “kid” cartoons though.

    True.
