Make sure you set your alarm for this Saturday. At 10 a.m. ET/PT, Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. Television is ready to deliver more DC Comics content than you can handle. Saturdays have been devoid of choices in animated programming but now we have a lot to look forward to.

In the sixth episode of Green Lantern: The Animated Series, the Lanters travel to a mysterious planet to save the inhabitants from an approaching asteroid that is on a lethal collision course. Once they get there, they discover the planet itself will not allow its inhabitants to leave. Hmm... It's up to the Green Lanterns to figure out the mystery before the planet-killing asteroid destroys everything.

Check out this clip and images:

== TEASER ==

Of course the second half of the hour is all about Young Justice. In "Performance," the team goes undercover at the Haly International Traveling Circus to locate a thief stealing weapons across Europe. But a thief isn't all they find.

Here's a clip and images from the episode.

Of course that's not all you get in the DC Nation hour. There will also be some animated shorts. How about another episode of S.B.F.F. (Super Best Friends Forever)?

And how about some Animal Man?

Make sure you don't miss out on all of this.

I really hope they release all these DC Nation shorts in a big DVD compilation. I'd buy that in a second.

Whether you watch DC Nation or Marvel Universe, or both like I do, superhero cartoons are in a wonderful age. Not only have 4-6 great shows out right now, but whole blocks of programming geared to it. With behind the scenes looks, animated shorts, and talking to the creators like Joe Quesada and showing him draw the Hulk. This is great stuff. I love Young Justice and Green Lantern, and the Avengers, still watching the second episode of Utlimate Spider-Man but it looks good.

Looks like Animal Man uses CG animation and colors it to look flat, like that show Drinky Crow on Adult Swim used to do and how other shows do it too. Could be wrong though.

So Young Justice so far:

Artemis is the daughter of Sportsmaster and ex criminal Huntress, and sister to Cheshire, but hasn't told her teammates yet because she fears they wont trust her. (even though Batman and Green Arrow already know.)

Red Arrow is back on the team and makes Artemis look like a traitor at every chance he gets.

Miss Martian used her mind powers to knock out her friends and then mind wipe Psimon and then lied about it all when her teammates woke up, all to cover up that she is actually a horrible looking white martian. and she has some secret deal with Queen Bee too.

Superboy went on a secret solo mission and found out there was another clone, and that he himself was cloned from Superman and Lex Luthor. Lex tried to turn Superboy against Superman And that Lex could stop him in his tracks for hours with one word,"Red Sun" and maybe do more than that... (control him turning him against his friends)... but didn't tell his team about it.

Don't know if Robin, Aqualad, or Kid Flash or Zatanna have done anything against their team... yet. None of the kids will be innocent.

But things are going to explode in their faces soon.

Wait a second. What if a kid watches Animal Man, loves it, then tries out the current gore-filled ongoing? 
 
...wow. Looks awesome though, can't deny that. 
 
How much of this stuff has made it over to the UK, by the way? I don't have cable at the moment but I don't even remember hearing about Young Justice airing over here.

Oh man the animal man cartoon just looks WONDERFUL. Except I imagine a little kid who decides to pick up the title to get into comics and either gets a trade of the Morrison run or the current Lemire arc and just gets SCARED FOR LIFE.

Still nice to see him get some love. DC has probably realized that while Marvel dominates the movies, DC always beats them in tv, here's hoping for more!

Excited about DC Nation! Maybe they can add a Flash Cartoon to the lineup! or another Superman show even.

Animal Man!? In a cartoon!? That's just awesome.

Sure it's only a short...but still, seeing Animal Man on TV for the first time (I think?) is awesome.

Oh Animal Man, your odd expressions make me laugh!

That picture of the confused Captain Cold is funny as well. :)

Saturdays, huh? Okay. I missed having a reason to wake up early Saturdays. Funny, how CN's doing the DC thing and Disney's doing Marvel.

I was browsing YouTube earlier an saw the BATGIRL SBFF one. The animation looks a bit goofy but cute.

We live in a world were Animal Man gets a cartoon, guys. WELCOME TO THE FUTURE!

Also, it's a little weird he's not in his New 52 costume.

I hope theres some kinda story behind the Young Justice clip. I mean how the hell does DICK GRAYSON screw up on the trapeze while Miss Martians going at it like a pro? Cant wait to see the episode though!

I'm wondering the same thing...

#44 Edited by Onemoreposter (4026 posts) - - Show Bio

@walkingcarpet: Thats because his new 52 costume sucks. His show looks awesome though.

I dig the accent on Wonder Girl. It actually makes alot of sense that her, Wonder Woman, and the rest of the Amazons would have mediterranean accents.

Seems like he's just a performer. Still, at least Blue Devil is in the show, so maybe we'll see him later.

True enough. I guess I hadn't really noticed, but yeah, no one really is. They should probably get on that.

The Animal Man short looks the best.

Of all these, the Animal Man one I saw at the DC Nation Panel at Wonder Con, and this particular short is funny for what Buddy ends up doing, lol
