Cartoon Network Brings the Funny to WonderCon 2012
March 8, 2012

Cartoon Network will host two panels and autograph signings for fan-favorite series Regular Show and Adventure Time at WonderCon 2012 to be held at theAnaheim Convention Center, Friday, March 16 and Saturday, March 17, 2012. Fans will get the inside track on their favorite Cartoon Network animated comedies from the creators, voice talent and crew themselves.

Created by JG Quintel, Regular Show features Mordecai and Rigby, two groundskeepers at a park whose attempts to escape their everyday boredom take them to fantastical extremes. The job is so deadly dull that the two friends will do anything they can to avoid it. This doesn’t go over well with their boss Benson but their efforts often result in insane escapades that delight their co-workers and friends.  Since its premiere in September 2010, Regular Show has become an instant hit and the series was nominated for a Primetime Emmy® just months after its premiere.  Regular Show airs Mondays at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) and season four is slated to premiere later this year.

From the mind of first-time series creator Pendleton Ward, Adventure Time follows unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants. The best of friends always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades.  Since its debut in April 2010, the two Primetime Emmy® nominated series has become a genuine ratings and pop culture phenomenon.  Adventure Time airs Mondays at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) and season four is set to debut this spring.

CARTOON NETWORK PANELS AND SIGNINGS

 

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
