From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sunday Pants was a half-hour long show on Cartoon Network featuring a collection of very short animated productions. Sunday Pants was compared to older Cartoon Network shows like What-A-Cartoon! and World Premiere Toons. The animations come from a wide range of writers and directors, some of them already familiar to viewers of Cartoon Network. Notably, History According to Noodle was written by Andy Merrill, who voiced Brak on The Brak Show and Cartoon Planet. Also, the two writers from Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, Adam Pava and Tim McKeon, created Weighty Decisions. Also, Soup2Nuts, the animation studio most notable for their cartoons Home Movies and Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist produced the animation for many of the shorts on the show. This show is one of the few shows playing outside of Adult Swim with a TV-PG rating. In December 2005 after showing six episodes, Sunday Pants went off air and has not been back since.
