UPDATED: Here’s all the Adult Swim panels you won’t get into at Comic-Con this year

We Bare Bears

Adult Swim and Cartoon Network aren’t messing around when it comes to San Diego Comic-Con this year. The sister networks are bringing the majority of their most popular shows to the crowded dream-slash-nightmare that is SDCC. Here are all the things you can try, and ultimately fail, to get into (unless you’re a seasoned line master):

Cartoon Network will host a “fandemonium panel” bloc on Friday, July 10, with Regular Show and Uncle Grandpa up first at 10 a.m., followed by Adventure Time and Steven Universe at 11 a.m. The panels will feature voice actors and creatives JG Quintel, William Salyers, Sean Szeles, Sam Marin, Pete Browngardt, Eric Bauza, Kevin Michael Richardson, Jeremy Shada, John DiMaggio, Olivia Olson, Adam Muto, Rebecca Sugar, Zach Callison, Estelle, and Ian Jones-Quartey. The panels will be moderated by Saturday Night Live’s Bobby Moynihan, who is also one of the voice actors for Cartoon Network’s upcoming series We Bare Bears.


In addition to the panels, Cartoon Network will screen an all-new episode of Adventure Time, along with the We Bare Bears pilot on Thursday, July 8, at 8 p.m. A new episode of Clarence will screen on Friday evening.

If you end up losing to the mighty strength of the Cartoon Network lines, maybe you’ll have more luck with the Adult Swim lineup (but probably not). On Friday afternoon, Aqua Teen Hunger Force Forever will have its farewell panel ahead of its 11th and final season this year. They’ll share the panel with the cast and crew of Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell, which is about to enter its sophomore season. Next up, Community creator Dan Harmon will sit on the panel for Rick And Morty, which he co-created with Justin Roiland, who will also appear. Also on Friday, Mike Tyson is set to promote his show Mike Tyson Mysteries, followed by a Robot Chicken panel with co-creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich and executive producers Tom Root and Breckin Meyer.

It looks like Childrens Hospital sadly won’t have a panel of its own, but on Sunday, creator and star Rob Corddry and star Rob Huebel will participate in one of SDCC’s worst and most second-hand-embarrassment-causing activities: a Q&A session.

And if you don’t make it into anything, there’s always the Adult Swim Booth in the Exhibit Hall. But fair warning: Even that will have lines.


UPDATE: Looks like we spoke too soon—Childrens Hospital is getting its own panel, after all. It will be on Sunday afternoon, from 1-2 PM, which is when the aforementioned Q&A will go down.
