Top 10 Current/Upcoming Cartoons of 2018-2019 to Look Forward To

ModernSpongeBobSucks
With Infinity Train now officially green-lit for a 2019 debut on Cartoon Network and practically guaranteed to fill in the void that will be left by Adventure Time when its series finale airs sometime this summer in 2018, these are just a few of the cartoon news that will be keeping animation fans up to date on their radar for even more current and upcoming animated series slated for 2018-2019.

That said, this list will be counting down the top 10 current/upcoming cartoons of 2018-2019 to look forward to. As new series premiere and still await their debuts, bear in mind the current/upcoming precedent is intended to accommodate for any animated series that will eventually debut and switch from upcoming to current. Anyways, feel free to vote and add to this list.

The Top Ten

1 Infinity Train Infinity Train Infinity Train is an American animated short pilot created by Owen Dennis for Cartoon Network. It follows Tulip and her companion One-One, which is composed by Glad-One and Sad-One, in their journey through a seemingly infinite train with limitless possibilities to find a way to Tulip's home.

It goes without saying Infinity Train is one of, if not, the most anticipated animated series set for the 2019 slate for Cartoon Network. With Adventure Time's series finale almost upon us and Cartoon Network still having to endure its Teen Titans Go! scheduling dilemma, Infinity Train is the perfect show to fill in the gap Adventure Time will leave upon its conclusion. As of now, there hasn't been any further information regarding Infinity Train other than what year it will premiere, but based on what the pilot showed us, I think it's safe to say Infinity Train will make Cartoon Network great again. With the pilot presenting us with an intriguing premise where main heroine Tulip is stuck on a train that leads her to infinite worlds found within each passenger car based on the glowing number shining on one of her hands, the series is bound to be an exhilarating experience full of mystery and adventure with science fantasy and comedy drama elements in the same vein as Gravity Falls. ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

As many of you know, Adventure Time is my favorite animated series ever as well as my favorite television show in history. The show has had such a large impact on me in a nostalgic sense, a storytelling sense, and has allowed me to appreciate animation in such a large level. I don't know if I'll ever love another cartoon like I loved Adventure Time. I grew up with it from the ages of 11 to 19. So when I heard it was ending in 2018, I thought that I was never going to watch Cartoon Network ever again. The CN Renaissance is all but over with all of its major shows ending and being replaced by more Teen Titans Go re-runs. But when I heard that the network greenlit Infinity Train, a wave of excitement sprung up inside me once more. Watching the pilot for this show was a similar experience to me watching the very first Adventure Time promos in 2010. I was just filled with so much joy and intrigue while being heavily entertained by well-written and complex characters and unique ideas. I'm ...more - phillysports

I've literally been waiting for this show as soon as the pilot came out. This is everything I want in a cartoon. Hopefully all these 2019 airings create a better era of cartoons. We need more like this; each episode is canon, overarching story, character development, soft design. And yeah, I know that the shows haven't even aired yet, but just from the pilots and cover art, I know, these shows are going to be remember, forever.

If the pilot is anything to go by it will be Cartoon Network’s equivalent to Gravity Falls here’s hoping it’s longer than two seasons however

2 The Owl House The Owl House

The Owl House is just one of two new upcoming animated series slated for 2019 on Disney Channel, with the other being Amphibia. If I were to describe The Owl House using two shows to compare it to, I'd say The Owl House is essentially Gravity Falls meets Harry Potter. Or perhaps Disney's equivalent to Little Witch Academia. From what I know already, the show is being created by Dana Terrace, who was one of the people who worked on Ducktales (2017). And now Saberspark's "success often breeds success" philosophy is popping into my head again. Anyways, The Owl House is about a teenage girl named Luz who stumbles upon the Demon Realm, where she meets rebellious witch Eda and is taken in as her apprentice at the aforementioned Owl House in order to train to become a witch. I only know so much about the premise and what year it will debut, but The Owl House looks to be spicing things up a bit by enchanting the MAIN Disney Channel's lineup for once instead of just shafting it to the Disney ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

When this comes out, I'm watching this. It looks. SO. COOL. - KalloFox34

Am too a hype this show.

3 Close Enough Close Enough

Regular Show always had a lot of adult undertones in terms of its character's moral dilemmas about maturing and it always had adult humor. Now that JG has the opportunity to incorporate a lot more adult humor into his creative and imaginative vision, he'll probably have a lot more freedom to tell what ever stories he wants. And it's not like he's never done anything adult-oriented before. 2 in the AM PM was a great and hilarious student short that he made a few years before he came up with the idea for Regular Show. That short is what I'm guessing Close Enough is going to be similar to. I'm really excited to watch the second cartoon series from one of the best animators and cartoonists of the 2010s. - phillysports

From the person who brought you Regular Show, J.G. Quintel is back with an all-new animated series. It isn't Regular Show, but it's Close Enough. And this time, Quintel is having his new show air on TBS instead of Cartoon Network (although, he will still use Cartoon Network Studios for production of the show), which means Close Enough is free to go all out with the adult humor. That's right. No subtlety at all. It's all 100% explicit. I can't really say what the show is really about, but from the teaser I watched of it, Close Enough has just about the same surreal experience Regular Show gave us. Focusing on a married couple in their 20's to 30's, this show went all-out on the teaser. Acid trips, rabid opossum attacks, a stripping clown, saving a daughter's doll in the midst of a crushing car, burning balls to go under a truck while skating, and even more acid trips! Again, Quintel is definitely going all out on this one! Close Enough will be a good show. A jolly good show! Jolly good ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It seems interesting - Phillip873

It's taking way to long to come out.

4 Amphibia Amphibia

While I'm looking forward more to The Owl House, Amphibia looks to be yet another great cartoon for Disney. Now with Amphibia, the show is being created by Matt Braly, who was one of the people who worked on Gravity Falls. As I've said before, this calls back to "success often breeds success". That said, Amphibia focuses on a self-centered teenage girl named Anne Boonchuy who stumbles upon the aforementioned world of Amphibia, a land inhabited by frog-like people. Accompanied by her new frog friend Sprig, Anne will embark on adventures that will take her to new heights with heroism and friendship. Speaking quite frankly, I can already see how similar in plot and premise The Owl House and Amphibia both are, but regardless, Amphibia will still be guaranteed to be a great watch on the main Disney Channel. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I'm looking forward to this more than The Owl House, but I think both sound awesome - Gangem

5 Final Space Final Space

With all the FANDOM wikia articles popping up everywhere about this show, I definitely had to look into what all the hype was about regarding TBS's recent show called Final Space. On account of one article claiming why Rick and Morty fans should have Final Space on their radar, once I learned more about Final Space, I finally realized why. Aside from the animation styles being strangely similar for both science fiction adult cartoons, Final Space isn't just something to fill in the void for Rick and Morty fans waiting for Season 4. Final Space is arguably THE next Rick and Morty. Now the premise is relatively simple. An adventurous astronaut named Gary embarks on a journey through outer space with his new planet-destroying friend Mooncake as they explore the outer reaches of the universe to unlock the mystery of the aforementioned Final Space. As expected, Final Space makes itself TBS's answer to Rick and Morty by introducing us to its vast intergalactic universe of its ensemble cast ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 Twelve Forever Twelve Forever

Initially a rejected Cartoon Network pilot, Twelve Forever was miraculously saved as an animated series when Netflix picked it up and green-lit it for 2019. While it's a shame Twelve Forever won't be part of the 2018-2019 slate Cartoon Network has up its sleeve, I'd say its acquisition by Netflix was for the better. Twelve Forever is a show that has the right amount of hyperactivity and action for a cartoon centered around a 12-year old pre-teen. The aforementioned 12-year old Reggie is a young girl who doesn't want to grow up. Accompanied by her friend Shane, Reggie lives out her twelve-forever life by going on epic adventures in her very own Party Island. However, Party Island isn't exactly Party Island, as... Butt Witch will be a recurring, if not, main antagonist that will always be causing trouble for Reggie and Shane. Now I haven't heard of anything else about Twelve Forever besides watching its pilot and loving it, but Twelve Forever will probably be a great addition to the ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

7 Victor and Valentino Victor and Valentino

Is it me or did Coco and Adventure Time just mix together into one chillingly thrilling mystery-adventure comedy series? Set in Mexico, the two titular brothers Victor and Valentino embark on adventures in their home town of Monte Macabre where they discover strange and supernatural entities and events with the help of their supernatural grandmother. Alright, now this is just sounding to sound a tidbit like Kara no Kyoukai, but not too much at all. That said, I did manage to get a glimpse of the pilot and I got to say, it looks incredible. Especially for a person who worked on the critically panned The Powerpuff Girls (2016) reboot, Victor and Valentino is one of the biggest breaths of fresh air for Cartoon Network's original content that is soon to come. But don't cast your doubts yet. This very person who worked on PPG 2016, Diego Molano, also worked on OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes!, so his filmography isn't all too bad. Regardless, Victor and Valentino is worth checking out, especially ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

8 Craig of the Creek Craig of the Creek

Something tells me this show will essentially be as if Ed, Edd n Eddy was animated in Steven Universe's art style (coincidentally, Rebecca Sugar, the creator of Steven Universe, likes Ed, Edd n Eddy as well). That said, Craig of the Creek is set to air on March 30th, 2018 in a double-premiere event on Cartoon Network. Going back to Steven Universe again, Matt Burnett and Ben Levin, the creators of Craig of the Creek, both previously worked on Steven Universe as well. So it shouldn't be too surprising why the art style of Craig of the Creek is almost nigh-identical to Steven Universe's art style. Anyways, Craig of the Creek is about the titular protagonist Craig and his friends Kelsey and J.P. going on adventures in the titular creek, described as a kid utopia inhabited with kids based in tree forts and dirt bike ramps. Actually, now that I think about it, let's call it as if Codename: Kids Next Door was animated in Steven Universe's art style what with the tree forts and stuff. Only ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This was really fun show for kids and everyone

This show is great - KalloFox34

9 Apple & Onion Apple & Onion

Ah, Apple & Onion. Wonder why they didn't do Apple & Cinnamon Stick? Apple Jacks joke aside, Apple & Onion, is, eh... decent but good for the most part. I wouldn't really say the show is for my tastes, but considering the show is known for having British humor, I wouldn't be too surprised if Apple & Onion is really popular in the United Kingdom. Going back to talking about the show itself, Apple & Onion is about the two titular anthropomorphic food characters adapting to life in the big city. Huh, guess Cartoon Network thought that if they could put a sheep in the big city, then they can do the same for an apple and an onion. Now I don't know an awful lot about Apple & Onion even at this point, but I do remember seeing a clip where Apple & Onion had to help guide a cat to safety by crossing a busy roadway. Honestly, that clip was quite dandy, if you ask me. It may not be my type of show, but for others out there who are into this kind of premise and British humor, go for it. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

LOL It's already over - Drawbox

Yeah, I wonder why they only did a limited release of only 10 episodes for 1 season. Unless they renew for it a second season, I guess you're right as of right now. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Kinda funny. This had me laughing so hard. The one where they went to the movies. LMFAO. CN is getting a little better. Just delete the horrible reboots and it's good again. - 23windomt

As a Brit, I'm proud - Gangem

10 Summer Camp Island Summer Camp Island

To be honest, the first time I saw Summer Camp Island when Vailskibum94 made a video about it, I actually thought the show looked awful in terms of its art style. While I do think the character designs look arguably deformed, the premise of the show itself seems to more than make up for the art style. And who knows? It might grow on me once it premieres. Created by Julia Pott, who had formerly worked on Adventure Time, Summer Camp Island is about two anthropomorphic best friends; an elephant named Oscar and a hedgehog named... Hedgehog (seriously? If they can name a hedgehog Sonic, why couldn't they name Hedgehog the Hedgehog something else? ) who are dropped off at a surreal summer camp. From horses that can transform into unicorns to talking sharks, Summer Camp Island looks to be a bizarre show. For better or worse, I can already imagine the massive amounts of Nightmare Fuel this show will bring in the same vein as Regular Show and Gravity Falls. Given the chance, Summer Camp Island ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

13 Star Wars Resistance Star Wars Resistance
14 Constantine: City of Demons Constantine: City of Demons

(Either my eyes are deceiving me or this incarnation of John Constantine looks almost like Erwin Smith from Attack on Titan). As I've said before, I don't know too much about DC Comics aside from the mainstream characters. Prior to learning of this animated series, I had no idea who John Constantine was. But when I did, just looking at the promotional poster for it truly intrigued me. John Constantine is already a kickass demon hunter and occult detective, but in comparison to other past incarnations, this installment in particular really brings out the grim and dark tone in Constantine like no other installment before it. Expect to see tons of demonic themes, intense action, and suspenseful mysteries in CW's latest animated series. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

15 Disenchantment Disenchantment

Having given us The Simpsons and Futurama, Matt Groening is now looking to create a brand new animated series for Netflix called Disenchantment. While not much is known about the premise as of this moment, especially since the only picture we have of his upcoming Netflix series is himself in The Simpsons art-style with a Bender figurine, there's quite some wonder in what Groening will bring to the table next in his animation career. Disenchantment will no doubt be guaranteed to have the same Groening feeling that The Simpsons and Futurama had. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I have watched the entire series. It starts out kinda generic, but it gets a lot better towards the Season 1 finale. - KalloFox34

16 Mysticons M.P.D. (MYSTICONS POLICE DELTA)

This will be the best reboot of a classic ever!

In this all new cartoon network exclusive reboot of the mysticons franchise, fans will get to see the continuing adventures of princess arkayna, zarya, piper and emerald as adult women...in other words, they are not teenage girls anymore.
they are now half human half robot MYSTICONS policewomen known as mysticons police delta, a new generation of superhero women who must protect humanity and robotkind from a new face of evil, the specter skulls, who want to destroy us all. this new show is created by Sean Jara, the creator of the original MYSTICONS cartoon. this all new action cartoon doesn't have to be just for girls, this female driven superhero scifi cartoon reboot of the original MYSTICONS cartoon is geared only towards boys, with a playmates toys toyline and console video games as well as books and app based mobile online games based on MYSTICONS MPD will be released to coincide with the cartoon.
this cartoon will also be the first T.V. PG LV rated show airing on cartoon ...more

18 DC Super Hero Girls DC Super Hero Girls

For the record, I'm already aware of the 2015 web animated series of DC Super Hero Girls. However, this item is meant solely to refer to the 2018 T.V. series being created by Lauren Faust. While I'm not big on the DC Super Hero Girls franchise, I suppose having the creator of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and turning a web animated series into a full-fledged television show will both satisfy fans of said franchise. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Isn't this already a show. - 23windomt

19 The Modifyers The Modifyers

Is it really coming to Nick? That would be incredible!

20 Big City Greens Big City Greens

Now I don't know an awful lot about Big City Greens as much as I do with The Owl House and Amphibia, but it does definitely have some potential to be a decent animated series on Disney. The series is created by Chris and Shane Houghton, who have both worked on Nickelodeon's Harvey Beaks by C.H. Greenblatt. In addition, Rob Renzetti, creator of My Life as a Teenage Robot, is working as an executive producer as well. While the premise is basically slice-of-life with the show focusing on Cricket Green moving in to the big city with his family, the animated series looks to be oriented around comedy and, again, slice-of-life. In other words, you could say it's almost like Disney's answer to The Loud House. Guess we'll have to wait and see how this turns out. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

21 The Adventures of Kid Danger

NOBODY was looking forward to this crap - AliciaMae

22 Total Drama Daycare

I have seen some news of Total Drama Daycare, but to put it bluntly, I'm not the person to be looking forward to this show. It's already bad enough Total Drama as a franchise has gone on for so long as a Franchise Zombie, but while Total Drama Daycare is far from being outright horrible at first glance, I'm personally not going to touch upon this one. But who knows? It might turn out better than expected. Just as long as it's better than the later seasons of Total Drama. At least it's not *shudders* Rugrats Pre-School Daze... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The only Total Dramas worth watching were the original, Revenge of the Island, and Ridonculous Race. - KalloFox34

23 Ballmastrz: 9009 Ballmastrz: 9009

Depending on your opinion of this upcoming Adult Swim animated series, this either looks like the second coming of Satan in the form of Superjail! Jr. or Kappa Mikey on steroids. There are quite a lot of shows that are either anime-influenced in art style or pay homage to the medium itself, and Ballmastrz: 9009 looks to be both while leaning more towards the latter. For a Flash animated series, the show really looks like it's not afraid to take risks when paying homage to various anime genres and whatnot. While the series has yet to premiere, this show will either be a thrilling acid trip that does anime homages right or the worst thing to happen to Adult Swim since King Star King. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I did it say it could be the worst thing to happen to Adult Swim since King Star King... - ModernSpongeBobSucks
