Cartoons in the City is an American/Canadian animated crossover comedy television series, being created by Kyle Marshall and Genndy Tartakovsky. It is produced by WildBrain, 9 Story Media Group and Splash Entertainment and it airs on Netflix since February 22nd, 2019.


Set in a Earth-like planet named the "Cartoon Universe", the show follows where characters from animated TV shows are lived in the city for a normal day like doing laundry, going to the store, taking the subway, or sometimes doing the dumb shenanigans that some of them might be known for.


Some of the additional voices (including Izabella Alvarez, Emilie-Claire Barlow, Nicole Sullivan and Clancy Brown) could be also voiced by other characters in the series.
