At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Cartoon Network will once again offer the ultimate fan experience both on and off the convention floor. Taking center stage is an Adventure Time themed booth on the convention floor showcasing the Ice King’s iconic castle with an exclusive fan-centric photo opportunity. Fans again have the opportunity to collect exclusive Comic-Con giveaways including five different Adventure Time buttons. (If you can’t make it to SDCC, don’t worry, they will show up on ebay.)
Directly across the street from the Convention Center, Cartoon Network has joined forces for a second year with the New Children’s Museum of San Diego to offer families and kids-of-all ages a unique immersive experience. Taking its inspiration from the Emmy® award-winning series Regular Show, Cartoon Network will transform The New Children’s Museum into the Regular Show Regular Zone – a sensory feast complete with nostalgic 80’s arcade games, Regular Show inspired video games, and groovy neon lighting. Topping the museum with ginormous inflatables of series stars Mordecai and Rigby, Comic-Con goers won’t be able to miss the Regular Show Regular Zone at The New Children’s Museum which is open and free of charge throughout San Diego Comic-Con 2013.
For the first time ever, Cartoon Network will host back-to-back panels of fan favorite series Adventure Time and Regular Show at the Hilton Bayfront on Friday, June 19. Series creators and stars will participate in interactive panels, where fans can ask their burning questions and get all the behind-the-scenes secrets on their favorite shows!
