Adventure Time arrives on Netflix UK in deal for Cartoon Network shows
James R | On 09, Dec 2013
Adventure is coming to Netflix UK. Repeat: Adventure Time is coming to Netflix UK.
The series, which follows Finn and his shape-shifting dog, Jake, through the Land of Ooo, will arrive on Netflix UK on Sunday 15th December.
Until then, though, there are even more awesome (and slightly less trippy) Cartoon Network shows for you to feast your eyes upon, from LazyTown and Regular Show to none other than The Powerpuff Girls. We repeat: The Powerpuff Girls are on Netflix UK.
The deal between the two companies marks the first time Cartoon Network content has been available to subscription on-demand services in the UK market. Indeed, last week Dexter’s Laboratory appeared briefly on Netflix UK’s website, only to be taken down almost immediately afterwards.
When asked for comment, Netflix cryptically told us on Friday that the titles were “added to the service a little bit early, a case of human error”, but did not have a confirmed release date for us and would not confirm which titles would be added.
Now, though, members in the UK and Ireland can enjoy Seasons One and Two of The Powerpuff Girls, Season One of LazyTown and Seasons One and Two of Courage the Cowardly Dog.
Other animated series becoming available for members to instantly watch from today (9th December) include:
Regular Show (Seasons One and Two) – Two friends, Mordecai (a blue jay) and Rigby (a raccoon), work as groundskeepers at a park, spending their days trying to avoid doing any real work.
Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends (Season One) – Following the adventures of 8-year old Mac and his imaginary friend, Bloo.
Samurai Jack (Seasons One and Two) – About young Jack who becomes a samurai to avenge his father’s death.
Season One and Two of Adventure Time will be added to the service this coming Sunday – with Season Three of The Powerpuff Girls following on New Year’s Eve.
“We are delighted to be bringing these Cartoon Network titles to our members in the UK and Ireland,” said Kelly Merryman, Vice President of Content Acquisition at Netflix.
“The relatable humour found in these shows are great for ‘kids’ of all ages. We are very happy to provide a subscription streaming home for these popular animated series.”
If you need us, we’ll be in the other room doing this:
