New Cartoon Network cartoons announced

While they haven't mentioned whether there will be new editions of Justice League Unlimited yet (keeping fingers crossed) I'm not too impressed by any of these "new" cartoons. Seems like a lot of retread ideas.

The new shows are as follows:

Krypto the Superdog (debuts Monday, April 4, at 9 a.m. ET):
After orbiting countless years in space as a test-pilot puppy on a malfunctioning rocket ship built by Superman's father, Krypto the Superdog seeks companionship on Earth.

The Life and Times of Juniper Lee (debuts Sunday, June 5):
A seemingly normal 11-year-old girl is also responsible for maintaining the equilibrium between the world of magic and humanity.

Camp Lazlo (debuts in July on the Fridays block):
A monkey wreaks good-natured havoc in a highly structured summer home.

GPX(debuts in November on the Toonami block):
In the year 2048, IGPX (The Immortal Grand Prix), the world's most popular sport, features two teams of three giant robots driven by human pilots and racing at speeds of 350 mph.

My Gym Partner is a Monkey (debuts early 2006):
Going to school becomes like a trip to the jungle for a 12-year-old boy who is accidentally enrolled in an all animal school.

Returning series include Star Wars: Clone Wars, Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, Totally Spies, Atomic Betty, Codename: Kids Next Door, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Teen Titans, Justice League Unlimited, D.I.C.E., Dragonball GT, Duel Masters and Ed, Edd n Eddy. New acquisitions include Code LYOKO (26 episodes), Zatch Bell (52 episodes), One Piece (effective in May), Naruto (third quarter), and Bobobo-bo Bo-Bobo (fourth quarter).

A boy in an animal school? Giant robots with human pilots??


Here's hoping for some great concepts from Adult Swim.
