Sym-Bionic Titan - Genndy Tartakovsky's new cartoon

How cool does this look? A giant robot beating up a dragon. I'm a big fan of Tartakosky. Samurai Jack and Clone Wars are simply stunning pieces of animation and this looks to be right up there. I cannot wait to see some footage from it. Wired had the news on it.

Cartoon Network is bringing animator/director Genndy Tartakovsky back to prime-time television with a new sci-fi series called Sym-Bionic Titan.

The show, one of several announced Wednesday as part of Cartoon Network's dramatically expanded development slate, will focus on three extraterrestrials from the war-torn planet Galaluna who crash-land, only to be swept up in high school and the fate of the Earth as we know it.

Tartakovsky's animated 2003 Clone Wars miniseries paved the way for the ratings success of Cartoon Network's CGI-soaked Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which is currently owning the boys 2-11 demographic. If Sym-Bionic Titan is anything like Tartakovsky's stellar Samurai Jack, the new show promises to deliver some seriously kinetic eye candy.
