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.

Synopsis

Set in an Earth-like planet named the "Cartoon Universe", the show follows where characters from animated TV shows living in the city doing what they'd usually do on a normal day like doing laundry, going to the grocery store, taking the subway, or sometimes doing the dumb shenanigans that some of them might be known for.

Cast

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

Episodes

See List of Cartoons in the City episodes.

Differences between the cartoon characters

  • Few of the characters (such as Droopy, Marcie and Numbuh 4) use Chris Savino's style, as well as different styles too.
  • The Harvey Girls (Audrey, Dot and Lotta) have thin legs.
  • The Bloogey Boys (Melvin, Fredo and Pinkeye) have thick legs.
  • The Peanuts characters have their "normal person"-like eyes (except for Snoopy and Woodstock) instead of their beady eyes, along with the style looks different than the original.
    • Also, some of the characters' parents are shown on-screen and they can actually talk.
  • The Camp Camp characters were given a more detailed style.
    • In addition to it, Nikki's red overalls are now short (showing a full view of her mustard yellow shirt) rather than the long one from the original Camp Camp series.
  • The stop-motion and CGI characters are now two-dimensional.
  • Winnie has a tail.
  • Mandy has got a nose.
  • Pearl is always wearing the same "Post-Regeneration" clothing, but she fills it out with more human qualities, like pockets and stitches at her pants and a pink bra inside her tunic.
  • There are some changes in the teenage Loud sisters' bodies: Lynn has a great overall fit body, Leni has a stunning curvy figure, Luan has a "average girl" body, Luna has a slightly chubby body and Lori has a perfectly plump buttocks.

Trivia

  • The series is similar to Tooned Out, House of Mouse and the OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes episode "Crossover Nexus".
  • The series is based on Cartoon Network's "City" bumpers from 2004-2006.
  • Human versions of the anthropomorphic characters can be seen in the episodes.
  • Animated versions of characters from live-action shows (Doug Heffernan from The King of Queens, Penelope Taynt from The Amanda Show, Mr. Moseby from The Suite Life series, Sam Puckett from iCarly and Sam & Cat, etc.) would appear in the cameos.
    • Some guest stars (Fran Drescher as Fran Fine, Tommy Snider as himself, Jaleel White as Steve Urkel, Hilary Duff as Lizzie McGuire, Kenan Thompson as himself, etc.) would also appear in the show's episodes.
  • Despite Winnie and Tanis being voiced by Natalie Palamides and Kristen Li (the voices of Buttercup and Bubbles from the 2016 Powerpuff Girls reboot) in the OK K.O.! episode "Monster Party", they are voiced by the original voice actresses for Buttercup and Bubbles respectively, E.G. Daily and Tara Strong.
    • Also, Winnie's new voice sounds similar to Prairie Dog's voice from Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Tanis' new voice sounds similar to Bubbles' voice from the original Powerpuff Girls series.
    • However, in later episodes, Phantasma would be voiced by Melissa Rauch due to Russi Taylor's death on July 26, 2019.
  • The show's intro is using the instrumental version of the Code Lyoko theme song and its ending credits are using the Kulipari closing theme.
  • The episodes also have the flashbacks (or the backstories) revolving around in the 2000s or the early-2010s.
  • Episodes of each animated show were mentioned and referenced by the characters in the show.
  • Characters from adult animated shows (Gene Belcher, Lisa Simpson, Meatwad, Ered Miller, Princess Bean, Morty Smith, Princess Clara, etc.) make non-speaking cameos in the series.
  • This time the Peanuts characters have their new voices for the series.
