The Amazing World of Gumball has been somewhere above Teen Titans Go and below Steven Universe / Adventure Time in clever kids shows for me since I found it. I just started watching the most recent season though, and it has vaulted itself up into one of the greatest absurdist art pieces I know of. And I mean absurdism in the real-ass philosophical way, not just absurd humor. Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead level stuff.

Could not be happier.

Tennant saying "smarter than the smarties and tougher than the toughies!"

Donald apparently having a more active role than occasional guest star!

Theme song is not a hip-hop remix!

And if they're gonna do an origin story, I like that they're grabbing a few elements from the original Barks comics, with the idea that Scrooge has retired but that his nephews reinvigorate his spirit of adventure.

Just watched a fantastic video called But the Characters Live On, a talk on re-casting voice roles after the original actor passes away. The panel's moderated by Mark Evanier and features Andrea Romano, Gary Hartle, Matt Craig, Jeff Bergman (Bugs, Elmer, Fred Flintstone, George Jetson), Grey Griffin (nee DeLisle, hence Mark's slight stumble when he introduces her as "Grey De-Griffin"; Daphne), Dee Bradley Baker (Daffy), Bob Bergen (Porky), and Mallory Lewis (Lamb Chop).

It's fucking delightful. Next time you've got 75 minutes, give it a watch.

Going to be a movie it sounds like, just like the other revival projects they've been doing lately.
