"Bad Seeds", greenlit for 26 episodes, follows Harvey, a sweet and well-meaning bird who makes two new best friends, Fee and Foo, the wildest kids in the forest.

Greenblatt ("SpongeBob SquarePants", "Chowder").

"Pig Goat Banana Cricket", greenlit for 26 episodes, features a series of absurd interwoven stories about four friends and roommates, Pig (the fool), Goat (the artist), Banana (the wise-guy) and Cricket (the brain). Created by Dave Cooper and J. Ryan and executive produced by David Sacks ("The Simpsons", "Regular Show") who co-writes with J. Ryan. Dave Cooper also art directs the series and the pilot was directed by independent animator Nick Cross:

Dude! What's up? For the first time ever at Comic-Con, the rad-awesome stars of the show will perform an episode live, accompanied by clips and storyboard panels from the series.

COMIC CON FACT #309: The Sanjay and Craig episode “Dog Wave” started with an email request from Jim Dirschberger to Jay Howell for a drawing of a “Dog Wave,” by which he meant a drawing of a dog waving, but instead Jay drew a wave made out of dogs. And that’s how it happened.
