Adult Swim

Adult Swim, stylized as [adult swim], is a block of programming on the Cartoon Network, which is a cable television station created by the Turner Broadcasting Company in late 1992. The cable network often showcases television shows geared towards the younger TV audience. However in September of 2001, the network launched a new block of programming known as Adult Swim. Its purpose was to air TV cartoons geared more towards the teenage/adult audience.

After being canceled in 2002, Family Guy was thought by many to be dead because even syndication of the show could not be seen on any FOX network. However, after much deliberation between Turner Broadcasting and Fox, Family Guy finally found its way back on the air, although in syndication on April 20th 2003, a decision that would one day save the show, bringing it back to primetime in 2005. Adult Swim also airs American Dad! and Seth Green's Robot Chicken. For many years, it also aired Futurama until its own revival. The Family Guy spinoff, The Cleveland Show began syndication on the block in September 2012.

In Blue Harvest, Peter Griffin does not believe that Robot Chicken is a legitimate television program in part because it airs on this network.

In "Big Man on Hippocampus", the bumpers shown during commercial breaks were parodied. The unedited versions of the show's episodes that air on the block were referenced as well, and goes into clarifying that the viewer is still watching FOX. When the episode first aired on [adult swim], they returned the favor by parodying FOX's "Animation Domination" promos to continue the gag that this was being watched on "FOX".
