This week in the world of cartoons, Gravity Falls graces us with a new episode, Starscream makes a fool of himself on Transformers: Prime, and we add Futurama and Venture Bros. to the SMC line-up.
TMNT is off in North America, but a new episode, "Parasitica", aired early this week in UK. Ultimate Spider-Man appears to be unexpectedly off this week, but that is subject to change. As always - minor spoilers ahead!
