Cartoon Network has revealed their plans for several new programs during its Annual Upfront presentation at New York's Time Warner Center. They plan on delivering a wide variety of programing for all ages. They will have twenty-five new series, movies and specials along with thirteen returning series. The one that most likely will catch your interest right away is Young Justice, which we announced back in February.
What else can we expect? There will be a MAD show based on the magazine and produced by Warner Bros. It will be an animated sketch-comedy series and feature such characters as Alfred E. Neuman and Spy Vs. Spy.  We will also see The Looney Tunes Show, a half-hour animated comedy series. Bugs and Daffy are no longer confined to 7-minute shorts. You can expect all your favorites to pop up.

Series that will be debuting soon include Ben 10: Ultimate Alien featuring 16-year-old Ben Tennyson. Generator Rex comes from the creators of Ben 10 ( Joe Casey, Joe Kelley, Duncan Rouleau and Steven T. Seagle) and has a young super agent who has the ability to create mechanical weapons and vehicles from his own body. There will also be Sym-Bionic Titan from creator Genndy Tartakovsky (Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack) and features a hybrid of giant robot battles and high school comedy. Three alien teenagers crash land on Earth and have to protect their new home from alien invaders. And we will also see Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated, a new animated feature with the gang back solving the mysteries of Crystal Cove.
Firebreather, an original all-CG animation based on and co-executive-produced by Phil Hester. There will be another live-action Scooby-Doo movie with Scooby Doo! Curse Of The Lake Monster.
Returning shows include: 
Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Dude, What Would Happen, Destroy Build Destroy, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Flapjack, Johnny Test, 6teen, Stoked, Bakugan, Pokémon, Battle Force 5, Pink Panther & Pal and Totally Spies. Doesn't look like The Secret Saturdays made it. That's too bad.
There were some more shows announced. It looks like we have a lot to look forward to on Cartoon Network.
